phaleslu (6285) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
375 ml bottle via trade with goryskewych- thanks again, George! Pours a semi-cloudy orange-gold with a minimal head. Aroma of oak, lemon, grass, herbs, grapes, dusty funk, and leather. Flavor of apple, grape, spices, herbs, oak, and dry, musty, dusty funk. A little leather, too. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, tart, funky mouthfeel and low, gentle carbonation. Really easy to drink. Excellent sour that is holding up really well.

Jblauvs (1339) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Notes from two separate bottles. Hazy deep golden pour. Aroma is oaky, tart white wine with spicy yeast, sour wood, leather, funky must, over ripe nectar fruit. Creamy and supple in the mouth, with a dry acidic finish. Intensely flavored, funky, vinous, and boozy. Loads of leathery, musty funkiness complimented by vinous, spicy richness and creamy vanilla barrel. A dry oaky finish rounds this out nicely.

johnnnniee (2233) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 26, 2012
From notes sampled Aug 19 2010 at Eb’s Pours a fairly clear golden amber color with a decent white head that shows some retention. Smells of tart cherries, lemons, caramel, very vinous with a solid dose of tart and funk. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. A solid hit of sour fruits up front, lemons and cherries mostly, and a solid hit of grape skins. A bit of funk with some vanilla and caramel round out the flavor quite nicely. Medium to light body with a spirited level of carbonation and crisp bubbly mouthfeel. I like this beer a lot, too bad its nearly impossible to get again.
