750 ml bottle. Pours a reddish color with a khaki head. Aroma of green apples, rubber bands, booze. Flavor is gross. Red wine, vinegar, booze, wood, rubber bands, green apple, tons of acid. Booze and acid is how I describe this. Slick mouthfeel. I had a solid 6 oz. pour of this and its almost unfinishable. This is gross. Not a good beer.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a small head.

The aroma is funky with a bunch of cherry. It’s earthy rich and oaky all around.

The flavor is tart with some sour fruit and burnt sugar. It’s got a bunch of tart cherry character & oakiness.

Neat.

Bottle at home with friends and family. Pour is deep brown with a light red tint and small tan head that quickly dissipated. Red wine vinegar, some spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, caramelly, green apples and pears in the aroma. Taste is red wine, some caramel, light salt, somewhat acidic, dark fruits, tangy, and oaky with a semi sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation.

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.

Homer321 (3551) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Shared at RBSG 2014 in the Presidential Suite. Tart cherry in the nose. with some bourbon. Strongly acetic and a burning finish. Overall very tart without much else; in a chest burning way without much fruitiness or barnyard.

maneliquor (3480) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Bottle cheers to the main man Adza. Pours clearish light brown with a sticky khaki bunch of bubbles around the side. The nose gives off a load of acidity and dark fruits with plenty of dates and sticky raisin sweetness. The cognac shines nicely without over powering at all. The taste is another story. Layers and layers. Coganc gives it a slightly oily feel where the acidity cuts through perfectly. Raisin-like sweetness, mild orange juiciness. Plenty of mild spices focusing on cinnamon. It has this tartness to it but the funk drives through to the finish. So much going on. This is incredible

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.
