Flaske, 75 ml. Tak, Gisle. Kastanjefarver med rødlige nuancer og et lavt lyst beige skum. Syrlig, maltet, oakey. Noter af bær, grapefrugt, acetone, vådt træ, skovbund. Ekstremt mange lag. Kompleks som en god Bourgogne. Wauv!

On tap at Crooked Stave (The Source). Deep reddish brown appearance with a lingering beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, oak, earth, funky yeast, sour notes and a touch of cognac. Similar flavor, sour, tart, funky, woody and fruity with a light puckering feel. Medium body with a lingering finish. Dank.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Dark copper body; semi-translucent with a khaki foam on top that disperses quickly to a foamy collar. Tart red apple aroma with a good amount of vinous red grape, red wine oak, & semisweet booziness. I get more wine than cognac on the nose, but that’s okay. Faint lemon, mild acidity, & a pinch of lactic acid. Light hints of vanilla, cherry, & wood. Flavor is heavier on the vinous notes, as well as the ripe cherry flavors, coming alive with a good deal of acidity & a nice bite of sour lacto. Hints of cinnamon, spicy oak, red apple, & red wine grapes that battle between lactic sourness & vinous booziness. Slightly dry finish with a lingering sweet boozy cherry & woody finish. Really enjoyable stuff.

Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a small tan head. Aroma of wood,vanilla, caramel, red sour fruits, cognac and brett notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dy and pleasant tart. Medium bodied, oily to watery texture and soft carb. An excellent Sour indeed.

Bottle at Sweet & Sour, Sätila, 2014-08-30. A bit hazy amber beer with almost no head. Cognac oak, sourish, caramell aroma. Sourish oaky cognac flavour with some tar, barnyard and leather notes. Nice one :-)

Sampled at the W&C Clayton. It poured a dark black cherry color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark cherries, some mild funk and dark malts. The taste was of sweet berries, cherry, a little caramel and some funk in the finish. Very nice.

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2014
Dark chestnut pour with a small cashew head that left a spot or two of lacing. Tart plum skin, raisin, cherry flesh, oak, vinegar, funky cheese, and even mild chocolate notes. Really complex and assertive. Not an enamel peeling sour but definitely causes the lips to pucker a bit. Ample carbonation. Delicious!
