Pours reddish-orange amber with a dense creamy off-white foam head that eventually recedes. Smells a little lambic-esque with notes of barnyard funk, horse blanket, oaky spice, hay, slight vinegar, mild whiskey, red wine, some cherry, red fruit, lemon, apricot, herbs, vanilla, caramel malts, dark fruit, dark toffee, caramel, molasses, chocolate, with floral earthy herbal grassy hops. Tastes tart, refreshing and dry, sour with notes of unripe red fruit, strawberry, cherry, cranberry, acetic red wine, lemon, whiskey, caramel malt, vanilla, caramel, dark toffee, molasses, hints of chocolate, dark dried fruit, oaky spice, horse blanket, barnyardy funk, hay, some leather, candied apricot, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy slick with moderate high prickly carbonation. Overall a really nice sour ale.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a clear and deep reddish orange which is topped by a dense and slightly rocky finger of off white head which retains very well leaving minimal lacing.
S: Smells of slight sour cherries and leathery funk with a hint of caramel, and a little citrus with some slight oak as well
T: Taste is quite sour up front with some sour cherry flavors with a hint of lemon as well. Caramel, leather, and funk come in along with some oak and furniture polish. On the swallow there's more sour cherries and lemon with more caramel, funk and slight leather.
M: This beer has a moderate amount of body with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is slightly effervescent and adequate for the style while the beer has a drying finish due to the acidity.
O: Overall this on is great. Really nice sour profile, really nice complexity, and a lot of flavors that play really well together. It's also held up really well since it was released back in 2016. It's definitely drinking well right now if you still have some bottles.

759 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 3/9/16, had 2/2/18.

Pours a lightly hazy pinkish gold, which is interesting, with a two inch foamy head with good retention and a fair amount of foamy lacing. Active carbonation. Smells tart, with a light creaminess. Aromas of cherries, some yeast, brett, light malt and vanilla, some bread and apples, light lemon. The taste is tart- more as it warms, some sourness, cherries, some lemon, light brett, light malt. It’s acidic. Mostly smooth, a solid medium body, well carbonated.

This is one I’m not sure I have described well. A good amount of tartness and sourness, great aroma, very good. Really enjoyable.

This beer poured a cloudy orange color with a brief half inch white head, which left a nice ring around the glass.

Fruit and barrel on the nose, with the fruit somewhat subdued in the plum, cherry family. Nice funk from the Brett, and a vinegary sour note.

The taste opens sour, but tempered by the lighter fruit notes and oakiness from the barrel. The fruit leans more cherry and raspberry in the taste. The tartness blends well with the earthiness and fruit flavors. Definitely sour, but restrained enough. Complex and variable flavors.

Dry finish and a surprisingly good accompaniement to the Thai smorgasbord we were enjoyng at rhe time. A lot going on, but quite straightforward, light and refreshng.

Pours a peach-orange with a finger of white foam on top. Fair head retention with a foamy ring that lingers for a long while. A few dots of lacing left behind. Aroma is cherries, and plum. Flavor profile is tart cherries, plum, and green apple. Mouth feel is smooth, with a medium-thick thickness. Overall, sour and tart, but smooth and crisp. Really refreshing sour beer.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 750mL bottle.
