22 oz bomber into a teku glass

2014 batch, opened the date of this review

Brew pours light and effervescent, bubbly like a soda with a half-inch head quickly dissipating. Dark brown in color, completely opaque.

Oaky nose, with subtle notes of unripe berries and cherries. Lactic aspects are subdued.

Flavors follow, but with a caramelly nuance midsip. Tastes more like a classic Flanders red than a wild ale. Light complexion ushers in a short, tart finish.

Tasty but unremarkable.

L:. Pours a cloudy purple red that looks a bit like raspberry jam, with very little head and no lacing.

S:. Some strawberry, raspberry and other berries, a touch of caramel and vanilla, smells tart. Also a note of vinegar.

T:. Cherry, strawberry, raspberry and other berries, a touch of caramel, a touch of tartness, a slight touch of vinegar.

F:. Light body, bubbly carbonation.

O:. Not a bad sour but there are ones I like out there quite a bit.

A: dark brown in color with a small head.

S: tart with berry notes and caramel.

T: tart with berry flavors and a touch of vinegar. A lot more barrel flavor than I would have thought, good oak, some vanilla, and a touch of bourbon.

M: light in body with fairly active carbonation.

O: overall I'm pretty pleased with this. Especially for the price.
