3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of gn0sis. Pours an almost clear amber with an off-white head. Baking yeast aroma, with a slight tartness. Medium body, rotten fruit, baking yeast, minerally and salty. Clearly the sourness is from a bug blend - and hence not really convincing. 260412

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours mostly clear and amber with no head. The aromatic highlights are fruity, tart cherries and a small measure of caramel. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is an enjoyable fusion of caramel sweetness and tangy fruitiness - reminiscent of cherry Pixy Stix candy. Finishes sweet, tangy and fruity. Thanks goes out to landhoney for popping the top on this world class brew!

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 2/11/12 from a corked and caged bottle. Pours a clear, fiery, light amber, with a thin white head that quickly dissipates, leaving just a thin collar of lace. The nose is a nice combination of caramel malt, sour citrus, perfumed red wine, and barnyard funk. The flavor is a bit more vinous and somewhat hot, with the caramel malt and barnyard funk coming through very nicely. The body is full and sticky with nice tannin, lighter than average carbonation and a long vinous and sour finish.

On draft at iron abbey beer dinner. Nice sour ale, I can definately taste the grapes. Good one, they were right saying it was pretty close to wine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(375ml bottle) rich amber, the beer glows it’s so bright, ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose of funk, moss, cellar, grape, peppery, tannins and grape skin. Taste of grape, white wine, caramel, quite complex, winey without tasting too much like wine. Great carbonation and linger.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to jblauvs for this delectable brew. Cloudy teak colored pour with very minimal head. Nose is extremely vinous with big notes of grape, plum, tart nectarine, and big funky yeast components. Flavor has more excellent sour peach, grape, marmalade, and tart tannic presence. Palate is quite sharp but with really welcomed acidity. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by CaseyK - Red-amber pour with a thin white ring of head. Smells fantastic--funky and lightly malty with smooth oak and red wine. Very nice. Tastes much the same, with a long lightly tart, lightly sweet almost cherry finish. Totally different from Victor, but with the same sort of sweetness. Dries out more on the finish, with lots of oakiness. Smooth, carbonated--very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has a lot going on. Some sour fruit, grapes, skins, peaches, wood, definitely some funky brett and and odd nutty earthy spice to it. Flavor is sour with a hint of sweetness, maybe from the grapes. A bit tart and has a prickly feeling on the tongue. Pretty tasty overall, great flavor and pretty well balanced between sour and the hint of sweetness and barrel.
