drowland (6591) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2/25/12. Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Mild aroma with definite brett and maybe a hint of cocktail with black cherries. Sweet somewhat malty entry followed by brett, black cherry, and cutting dryness. Not bad!

Bottle thanks to Eric. Pours a clear amber with small off white head. The aroma is sour fruit and cherry. Thin mouthfeel with a dry fruit and lingering dry finish. A good wild ale from 512.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a nice beige head that quickly subsides and a fruity aroma. There is a sour chocolate flavor with a cinnamon finish. Sour and spicy. Interesting and very tasty,.

brokensail (12277) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Pours a brownish/amber color with a tan head. Smells slightly vinegary, as I sort of expected. Sweet bread and toffee malts are there. Some hints of dark fruit and a bit of oak/barrel aroma. The flavor has a nice tartness with notes of vinegar and cherries. A few other dark fruit notes in there as well as the sweetness of toffee malt. Not an overly impressive beer, but in no way bad or offensive.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 One of 400 bottles, available at the Black Star Co-op for the low, low price of $worth-it dollars. This sour pours like a we dream. Itís so dark in the glass it may as well be black. The head builds to a half inch and stays there as you finish the pour. Itís so enjoyable to watch it flowing into the glass it may as well be made illegal since they havenít found a way to tax that. The head disappears soon but thatís when the aroma takes over. Mellow and sour. Amen to bottle conditioning. I like sours. I donít love them, but this one I love. Please make more of it. They wonít let me take it out of the bar. Holy happy shit. Yes it is that good. Just drink it. Donít ask questions. Its the perfect balance of the four ingredients with a happy addition of the bacteria.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with beige head. Aroma has hints of toasted malt, brown sugar, some dark fruit and a bit of farm house with a nice tart acidity......Flavor is much the same with subtle cherry notes as well and a nice tartness. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed!

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin brown head. Deep fruit and wild yeast aromas. Lots of cherry, some fig, and peach. Well-developed flavor, good interplay between malt and yeast notes. Chewy but dry with a lingering sourness and some rubbery brettanomyces notes. This will benefit from some time in the cellar, but drinks very nicely right now.
