Rusted and infected. Smelt of coins and tasted much the same

Not sure if this was bottled with Brett, but that might be the case based on my experience. Opened the bottle and half the contents gushed out immediately...

Appearance is pretty much the only thing here resembling an old ale. Hazy brown, too much carbonation leading to a three finger head even with a gentle pour. Lace remaining throughout the drink.
Smells funky, tart. Not really what one expects when they hear old ale.
Taste is full on farmhouse. That's it.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Again, not an old ale.
Overall, something went wrong, maybe this was sitting out too long before I got it and cellared it, not really sure. I just know it's not what I expected when I read old ale.

Overall , I was a bit disappointed after drinking this beer . There were many different notes within the beer but I feel like it was trying to be too much but at the same time not delivering any one of it . It left me wanting more , more of the flavor , more of the aroma , and more of a satisfaction . I guess they're experimenting with this beer but my poor ratings reflected how much of a good beer it COULD be but unfortunately it wasn't . I tried it on tap and wouldn't be having anymore of it anytime soon .

Cheers

Unpleasant sourness that doesn't work well.

Appearance: brown, huge medium brown head
Aroma: a bit sour, bitter oaky,
Taste: Dry, I'm getting a number of spices, clove nutmeg, to name a couple, finishes tart and oaky
overall: not a huge fan it could have been a whole lot better. it almost tastes as though something got into the brew either in the bottle or the barrel more than likely form the spices added. the sour oakyness does fade a bit as it warms.
