Chuckaduck (653) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle. 7/9/13. Pours a deep and opaque reddish brown with no head but a few bubbles. Aroma is fantastic; red fruits, berries, vanilla, wood, alcohol, brandy. Taste is aggressive, tart, stringent, highly acidic; dry fruits, raspberries, alcohol, leather, wood; with a long lingering fruit peel bitterness. Fantastic. Mouth feel is wet, slick. Carbonation is low. No lacing. Highly flavorful; nicely barreled. Alcohol is rather evident; I don’t mind.

DrewFace (815) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Much darker than I was expecting, little head. Aroma of red wine and dark fruits and the same in the flavor, also getting a slight blackberry flavor as well. Very good amount of sourness and tartness in this one..,very well balanced overall. I wish I had more than this 11.2oz bottle (that I had to share).

NeoHippie2 (1044) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Dark brown pour with no head to speak of. Aromas of wine, yeast, and dried fruits. This is a really complex beer and well made but a bit too sour for my taste (I’m just getting into sours as of this rating so take that with a grain or two of salt). The flavor reminds me a lot of wine it has definitely absorbed that from the barrel aging. I respect this brew for what it is, maybe when I develop a better taste for sours I can come back to this one again.

Beer4000 (4541) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2013
Sampled @ Haand 2013. Slightly unclear deep brown body with a small beige head. Pleasant aroma of sour berries, fruit, mild malt and chocolate. Flavor is sweet and sour, quite sour actually, malt, fruit, some wood and decent bitterness. Fine body and acidic aftertaste. Quite sour but still pretty good balance here.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a very still dark brown. No head to be found on this brew. The nose smells like a mix of oak, nail polish, and red wine. The flavor highlights the nail polish part with a heavy handed oak experience. Sour and varnish like with slight Cabernet highlights. Light to medium body with zero carbonation. I made it through a few sips before I jettisoned the rest down the drain.

Foffern (1258) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep nut brown colour with no head. Sweet and woody aroma of leather, roasted almonds, liqueur, oak, and alcohol. Very sour taste with bitter plumskins, heather, red currants and more sweet berries in the end. Rich and sticky mouth feel, and medium berry bitterness. A very sour ale but develops in the mouth with different kinds of berries. Would be more balanced along with food.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Dark brown ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The aroma is roasty, vinous, chocolaty, caramely and acidic – chocolate covered sour cherries, French oak, red wine and caramel. Smells very much like a porter that was transformed into a wild ale. Full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor is caramel, chocolate, toasted nuts and sour cherries. Finishes tart, tangy, moderately roasty and mildly bitter

ClubGonzo (4130) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2013
On tap @ HaandFestival 2013. Dark brown-hued orange, tiny white head. Nose is mild lactic sour tones, oak, grains, hints of caramel, cinnamon and light cereals. Smooth. Taste is similar, with lactic sour notes up front, then grainy caramel and wood in the back. Hints of red wine and grape peel. Medium body and carbonation. Nice sour.

From a bottle shared at home. Pours a very dark, almost black, reddish brown with a thin off white head. Sour cherry aroma. Flavors of red fruits and oak with a tart finish.
