On tap at the Buddha. Served in a wine glass.
Appearance - Very murky orange red body. Arrives with an off white head that doesn't last long in my glass. Everyone else's glass had decent retention.
Smell - Lots of apple. Apple on apple brandy. Definite brandy character and some acidity. Can't really figure out what kind of sour it is. It's got a funk to it. A little cheesy.
Taste - Sour apple flavor up front. Grainy malt is strong, which is surprising. Apple flavor is consistent. Sour flavor is all over the place. Still difficult to figure out what sort of sour it is. Brandy flavor lingers in the finish.
Mouthfeel - All over the place with the acidity. Slight alcohol. Not the cleanest of beers.
Overall - The apple flavors are nice, as are the brandy flavors. The sourness is just odd.

First had: on tap at Funky Booty
Murky, dark amber pour, a small bubbly ringlet on top. I'm pretty sure this beer was undercarbonated when I sampled it, as it wasn't "officially" on tap yet. Some musty funk in the nose, like apple wine almost, nutty malts. More of this in the taste, apple was pretty dominant, more cider/wine-like though, not candy-ish; sweet caramel malts underneath with a slight nuttiness, almost like a brown ale, though I'm not sure what the base beer for this one was; there was a sour kick too it, but nothing overly puckering, maybe a bit acetic. Medium body, though obviously need a bit more carbonation. Still quite good overall, for a still-conditioning brew.
