Dogbrick (11327) - 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.

Sammy (11074) - 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.

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.

adnielsen (10475) - 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.
