Low head retention. Deep claret red color. Light acidic flavor of red wine, oak and berries. Malt taste is overly hidden. Body is thin, but I respect this style.

330ml bottle - 2 years in stainless steel, and strangely no mention of anything else, beyond the typical marketing blather.

This beer pours a clear, medium red-brick amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and sort of bubbly beige head, which leaves some low-lying iceberg shelf lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of sour, almost vinegar-like red berries, musty caramel malt, a bit of that ol' Brett funkiness, ethereal bittersweet cocoa, and some very plain earthy, leafy, and herbal green hoppiness. The taste is musty old socks soaked in red wine vinegar, wet ash, caramel/toffee malt, an increasingly acrid Brett funkiness, muddled and bruised dark orchard fruit, and some still unheralded, but starting to make a name for themselves herbal and slightly perfumed floral hop bitters.

The carbonation is fairly understated in its wan frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and more smooth than I might have initially considered. It finishes off-dry, but moving in the latter direction, with the funk-addled dark fruitiness escorting us out the door.

Overall, a rather disjointed, and hard to really get into version of the style, with the funk once again fucking with the beautiful sour fruitiness found in its betters out there. Not really worthy of seeking out, I'm afraid.

Poured into tulip.
Pours clear mahogany beer with thin off-white head, low retention.
Smell - nice, sour, funk, vinegar, red berries.
Taste - sour notes, fruity, woody, earthy, rough on palate, dry.
Light body, prickly carbonation.
The beer with excellent smell, weird taste and unpleasant feel.
