A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a deep reddish purple beer which is topped by a finger and a half of dense and slightly rocky light tan head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of juicy blackberries and currants with some nice sourness along with a bit of oak
T: Taste is blackberries and currants with some dry oak, and nice building sourness. On the swallow there's more sourness, blackberries and currants, and oak
M: This beer has a body which is on the moderate side of things with a slightly syrupy feel. Carbonation is low and slightly effervescent while the beer has a drying finish due to the acidity.
O: Overall this is a very enjoyable beer. It has some nice flavors and a decent amount of complexity which makes it fun to drink. Well worth a try if you like fruited sours.

Pours red with a strong sourness. Good brett in this beer with some solid earthiness and oak barrel ageing. Clearly taste all the blackberries and currants in this.

Deep red with a a hint of a head. Supermassive oak and over ripe cherries on the nose. Green berries and new oak on the palate with warming dark cherry. A nice woody funk with just a little pucker. A little flat and bright at the end.

Awesome brew- the barrel character really comes through. Taste of black berries and tartness. Really great mouth feel, and really nice finish. Really enjoyed this beer
