750, corked and baled. Pours a murky dark brown ebony with a scant pale tan head that fades. Plenty of wood showing on the nose, with a nice dry airy tartness like the gentlest balsamic vinaigrette you ever smelled. Creamy medium body with lively carb. The triple fermentation has sucked every bit of residual sugar out of this, leaving it dancing on the lightest of feet, with a great blend of dark sour thatís almost roasty with some woody notes and nice acetic complexity from the grapes. Not too many other beers out there like this. Safe to say itís not for everyone, and no doubt often misunderstood.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate, spice, sour and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tannic sweet flavor with a medium to heavy tannic wood dry and sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm (later by Tmoney99). Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin beige film. The aroma has quite a bit of sour lactic qualities interspersed with cocoa, nuts and roast. It is very different than beers like Tart of Darkness, etc. The flavor is much of the same with maybe more tart character. Some vinous notes,Brett and wood. Interesting complex beer. I still donít like the prices of these.

50belair (2141) - Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. Black pour. Malty aromas. Smoke, red wine, roasted malts and brett notes. Bad mouthfeel. This beer is a mess. Decent body..

PhillyCraft (3069) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle shared at the nyc tasting. Notes of butter acid and funk, bad whiskey and barrel, oaky, ashy and gross. Moldy cheese in the finish. Awful.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Dark brown pour. Mild sour cherry. Quite flat on the palate. So close but kind of misses the mark.

750 ml bottle shared. Pours a dark brown with no head. Bleu cheese aroma and taste are overwhelming. Not for me.
