From the OnceMade project…these were bottled a year ago so I guess it’s safe to open. Enjoyed at fridge temp in stemware.

A – 1 finge head, fairly resilient. Flemish red appearance with lots of burnt red, hazy, etc.

S – Slight vinegar notes, floral with fruitiness. Hard to pinpoint any one nose aspect.

T – Very acetic almost like a mix of lemon juice, oranges, copper pennies and flemish rodenbach yeast. Extremely tannic

M – Dry, sour, full bodied. very interesting.

O – This beer also falls short of great. It’s okay but not something I’d seek out.

750ML as a part of the once-made project. Split 2 ways at fridge temp in a stemmed glass.

A – Champagne like orange color with a 2 finger creamy head.

S – Smells pretty nice. Sort of a weak juicy juice with berries.

T – Mild tartness, some brett funkiness with some fake juiciness like corn syrup? Brandy certainly at the finish brandy / rum but comes across as more medicinal than expected

M – Nice mouthfeel, obviously bottle conditioned.

O – Not a favorite. the flavor description is accurate but it comes out far worse than I would have liked.
