My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.71
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.6

Intro: A 375ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 12th September 2021. Poured into a red wine glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark copper colour with a very thin off white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, basil, red berries, oak, with notes of vinegar.
Taste: Sweet, a touch sour, basil, red berries, with a touch of oak and balsamic vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The basil is strong and obvious, but each sip makes me think of pesto, which while not bad, was a little too savoury for me.

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Sour ale aged in oak with mint and estragon.

My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.62
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.5

Intro: A 375ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 1st September 2021. Poured into a red wine glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark golden orange colour with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly, while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Mint, tarragon, acetone, nail varnish, with notes of oak.
Taste: Sweet and sour, mint, tarragon, oak, with a touch of vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: An interesting use of herbs, as the mint and tarragon come through nicely. However, I’m not sure why, but there was a strong acetone/nail varnish aroma that was quite overpowering and definitely a bit distracting from the rest of the beer.
