>> Black core, red edges. Sour acetic aroma, red wine vinegar, fumey, salty. Extreme acetic taste, woo baby red wine vinegar. Tolerable but hot tamale. Would be nice to saute mushrooms with in butter. But drinking straight? No thanks.

Tried during (slight before?) SF beer week 2014 at Toronado. Pours black or probably a very dark red. Blackberries, underripe apricots and other stone fruits, lime peel, light on the palate, quite sour, much more vinegar than lactic.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 On tap at Falling Rock after the PtY release. Deep reddish-brown, almost black, with a diminishing head. Pungent, strong aroma, sour and tart with notes of dark fruits, oak, wine, vanilla and light caramel. Similar flavor, SUPER sour and tart with tingly, puckering mouth feel. Wow, simply an incredible sour. Update: I tried this again at Falling Rock during CBC week and it was not nearly as good, probably in the 3.5 range.

On tap at Toronado in February 2014. (my first one from this brewery)
Hazt reddish with a small head. Quite sour with berries, vinegar, oak, some chocolate and light roasted notes. An interesting and tasty one. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is black with a light brown head. Fruity cherry, lots of the Flemish sour come through in the nose. Smells a bit acetic with some unique dark malt. Taste is fairly acetic, lots of sour cherry and traditional Flemish sour flavor with an interesting chocolaty, dark malt note. Light body. Really strong carb, a hint slick.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
8 oz at Falling Rock. This is a winner for sure. The pour is cloudy mahogany. Very sour aroma with notes of sour cherry, vinaigrette, blackberries, red wine. The palate is full and suits the bold, complex sour flavor very well. There are vinous notes in the mix with the clean, straightforward vinaigrette-type sourness. The finish is dry and subtly fruity. Excellent example of the style.

Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear dark brown color. Not much of a head. Aroma of tart berries, earth, citrus and an almost tar-like note. The taste is very tart berries, citrus, mild earth. Reminiscent of berry life savers. Medium bodied. Solid.
