Man this is good. The flavor? Sweet jesus. wow. That’s for the haters. HAHA. Anywya, it pours a nice brown color, beige head. Its quite sour but its soft and supple at the same time. Cherry, balsamic, grapes, woody notes, funk...just a superior beer.

Dogbrick (10740) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Sample at Crooked Stave. The beer pours a clear ruby-brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of oak, tart fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of vinous oak, caramel malt and funky yeast. The finish is brett yeast and tart vine fruits. Pretty good all around.

Bottle - Wood, cherry and a bit of appropriate acetone. Cloudy amber with a thin beige head. Slight tart bite up front, cherry, oak and a bit of a sweet tart finish. Smells much better than the taste.

Sammy (10566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Very good sour beer. Initially, at a colder temperature, the sourness is mild. It builds as it rises to room temperature. Not too palate erasing.

adnielsen (10367) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap @ the release party @ Crooked Stave’s Source location. Somewhat hazy reddish brown appearance with a thin, disappearing tan head. Aroma has a bunch of plum / dark berry / dark grape fruits. Some tannic notes also present and actually a fair amount of roast / toffee / caramel / burnt malt. The flavor is moderately tart. Black cherry / dark grape notes are pretty apparent. Some woody / leathery notes. Light acetic acid. Finishes pretty smooth. Pretty fun brew and definitely easy to drink.
