look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Dark brown with tan foam, thin skim and spotty lace.
Sharp aroma, acidic berry and molasses notes.
Tastes like a very sour Kvass, big sour acidity up front, the molasses lingers, with a tootsie roll aftertaste.
Light to medium bodied, dry finish, somewhat lower carb but suits the style.
Strikes down upon thee with great vengeance.
Interesting, but not as successful and nuanced as D9's other sour ales.
Thanks for this one Wil!

3.96/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look - Dark and bubbly, no head at all.

Smell - Acidity, cherries, cranberries, plum. Smells sour, but not that funky.

Taste - Sour, but quite tart. Lots of dark fruit present: cherry, cranberry, plum, fig, and some lemon. Not a lot of depth but just a nice, straightforward sour taste.

Feel - Thin, carbonated, and tart. Makes me salivate a lot.

Overall - Great, local beer

Pours a rich, dark brown with plenty of carbonation that dissipates quickly. Smells of plum, candi sugar, pomegranate, and tart cherries. The nose is a bit tannic but not suggestive of too much sharp acidity. Nonetheless, it's on the way; the beer drinks dry, with a bright tartness and a tinge of butyric acid. Suggestive of adding in some grapefruit to the dark stonefruits once it hits the tongue.

Big ups to Wilson for yet more beer. Who da man? You da man! Ezekiel is dark. The body is very nearly black with maroon highlights bordering the glass. The blood red glows when backlit. A frothy beige head forms easily on the pour before crackling down to a skim coat. Carbonation keeps the ring heavier than the rest of the foam and splotchy lacing remains after each drink.

Ohh, now that's an interesting nose. Macerated dark fruits lead the way blackberry and plums mostly that also add a touch of acidity. There's a touch of deep, dark, exotic (to me) sugars present and when I give the bottle a look, date molasses is used. Interesting. The longer this breathes the more vinous the nose becomes. Grapes, stems, a little earthiness, graphite. I like where this beer is leading.

Wow, the flavor profile is loaded with sour dark fruits and berries. Blackberries, plums, black raspberries, and tart grapes are all present. A tongue grasping acidity along the lines of white vinegar takes hold and plays well with the fruit notes. A very date-like sweetness, though soft, takes hold on the swallow to try and even out the acidity and keep it from being a runaway train. This is good beer, definitely a heartburn inducer.

The body lies between light and moderate with a snappy carbonation that keeps things moving at a good clip. The acidity is bracing upfront then mellows with each drink. It grabs the sides of the tongue and the gums. The finish is dry and leaves me wanting another drink soon after the last. It's a refreshing, zippy libation.

Ezekiel is good beer. It has the vibrant, underripe fruitiness upfront with a fruity acidity. It's snappy and lively with a dryness accentuating the tartness. This is a refreshing, delicious beer. Thanks again, Wilson!
