look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours ice tea brown with a modest tan head; a few strands of lacing linger

Smell: Tart and vinous, with tones of sour cherry, wine grape and lemon

Taste: Lemony tartness, up front, with a malt base bringing caramel to bolster; vinous tones of wine grape and cherry, through the middle, with some Bourbon in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A lot going on here, with tart flavors, vinous fruit, caramel and Bourbon; really interesting combination

750ml bottle $20 dated 2/24/17. Pretty dark in color, more than I expected, dark brownish-red I guess. Decent head. Aroma is weird, first a flanders red type aroma, then some stinkiness and funk. Slightly tart flavor, grain, sour on the finish. Almost has a cherry-like flavor to it.

Bottled 4/14/16

Khaki head, dark brown color.

Not a typical bdg. Very sour. Tart cherries, oak, and spice. Fruity. Not much French characteristics are present due to the sour.

Dry. Champagne like feel.

Decent, but definitely off style.

750 mL bottle. Pours deep brown. Medium white head. Smells very nutty and malty. Toasty malt. Kinda nutty. Tastes surprisingly sour. Lemon tartness that becomes deeper from the dark malts. Almost becomes like a sour cherry, but never quite broaches the fruit territory. Toasty malt. Pretty sour. Well carbonated. Medium body. It's not what I expected. Dark malts dominate and it never really melds together.
