375ml bottle. From notes... the last bottle of the night I took ratings for as my tongue was almost completely shot to shit by then. Pours a dark, hazy copper with little to no head. Very little appearance of carbonation. Super spicy, acetic aroma. A good dose of acetone and tart fruit skin. Flavor has loads of tart, dark grape skin. Acetone. Lots of drying oak. Fairly tart and acidic... rough around the edges for sure. Chalky texture. Moderate carbonation with a short, harsh, acetone filled finish. Thanks Randall!

deyholla (6607) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Poured a hazy deep amber with an off-white head that started at the edges and remained there throughout the beer. Aroma had a combination of heavy funk and heavy sour fruits with just a hint of grain backing. Flavor started with sour fruits and was joined by sweet grain and a heavy funk note in the finish.

Allagash victor frakenstein. 375ml bottle. Thanks Adam for sharingthis badboy... Pours an apple cider, semi-transparent pour, with a thin film of soapy white head... Strong acetone nature upfront and cidery to some degree. Lighter cherry essence in the background as well as some vanilla tannins... Flavors are a direct translation from the nose with a concentration of vinegar and sour cherry essence. Not as much acetone in the flavor. Adequate carbonation and body but somewhat lacking overall in flavor. 7/4/7/3/14

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Hazy golden pour with purple tints. Tons of tannic grape skins and barrel notes in the aroma, followed by earthen funk and sour grapes. The flavor holds a warming vinous sourness that culminates with oaky barrel and cabernet tannins. Caressing palate with a super dry finish.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2011
375 ml bottle from SpeedwayJim. Thanks. Pours a glowing white zinfandel hue, a light haze, small frothy ring laces small. Aromas are tart, sour grapes, some berry tannin, wet oak, funky brett and a sharpness of dust and touches of cheese. Touch of coriander comes through. Some vinegar, touch of maltiness, lingering acidity. Initial Is mellow, some druiven and light coriander, wheat malts, bread, dry bretty funk. Dry, with coriander, funky blanket, straw, dust. Touches of grapeskins, lingering tannins, oak, red wine even, wet dust. A bit strong on the abv, fairly dry overall, the grapeskins add some nice tannins, decent acidity, bigger funk. Nice. Not world moving, expected some more acidic or sour kick.

375ml bottle pours a translucent, rosy amber with a cloudy, white head. Nose is raspberry, bretty, musty, herbal, floral, honey. The nose is funky yet inviting. Flavor is sweet, tart, cherry, cough syrupy, pepper, dried lemon peel, acidic. Medium bodied.

GT2 (8372) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
375mL courtesy of MrChopin. Pours a hazy light pink with a thinning, white head. Beautiful looking in the glass. Aroma is heavy funk, cotton candy, some impending hot sourness, white vinegar perhaps. Taste is very hot acetic sour, pretty spicy, moving thankfully to sweet strawberries and tart strawberry smoothie. The hot acetic acid is a little much but the berry tartness and sharp sourness save this from being a huge acid bomb.

Sweet tart nose with lots of acetic acid/vinegar, some caramel and a touch of cherry. Moderately sweet, moderately tart, lots of acetic acid, some cherry, light dark fruit and some caramel.

Travlr (11131) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle courtesy of MrChopin, thanks! Bright pinkish red, hazy. Aroma of sour raspberries. Taste is bitter, sour, fruity all at once. Nice complexity and character.
