a sour ale spiked with juniper and blueberry, then barrel aged for 3 years. pours a curious shade of cloudy pink, like a fruit juice infused beer, with a tiny head of clear bubbles. the nose is really pungently sour, bretty and oaky too. possibly going to be a sweet taste, the nose has definite blueberry and pine to it, and alcohol. taste is funky and different, the acidic tartness and berry juice comes first, then a weird sort of candied flavor, followed by the juniper i the finish, which to me is where this beer goes wrong. it literally burns on the way down from the juniper, like a poorly made, or navy strength gin. its hot and caustic and a little unpleasant. i couldnt drink more than one of these for that reason. the mouthfeel is medium bodied and very dry, this beer almost makes me thirsty. not a total winner, but a creative brew for sure. worth a taster if you make it to the tap room.

Draft at the brewery on the occasion of the Odio Equum release, reviewed from notes. Ten ounce pour into a snifter gives a deeply reddish amber color and a low, white head. A lot going on in this one - quite sour with lemon and other fruit acidity, touches of blueberry with a fairly assertive juniper character. Berries through the midpalate, vinous. A good amount of funky depth. There’s perhaps a little clash here and it’s thrown off balance somewhat, but an interesting experiment and pleasant drink regardless. The oak barrels used were neutral, so none of that for me.
