solidfunk (4008) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Nice cherry bretta lambic tasting thing. Finishes with a nice sour bite with lots of bretta and some sweetness from cherry. Cherry is pretty substantial here actually. Pours red with good head and lacing. Bottle at Churchkey thanks to Radagast, Travlr or Jack or someone. Great!

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2014
At the Anchorage presentation at The Wine & Cheese Place - Pours dark amber / mahogany with a beige head. The aroma has a nice mix of toasty malt, brown sugar, and citric / vinegar sourness. It has a medium / light body with some richness to it and soft carbonation. The flavor begins with dark fruits, red fruits, caramel, nutty malt and a nice crisp sourness that balances well and bring all of the flavors together. The finish has a rich sweetness, but heavy citric / lactic sourness balancing. "Balance" would be the key to this beer. Excellent in every way.
