Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours a dark amber color with a fizzy off white head from a 12 ounce bottle. Aroma is very oak/wine/sour with some malt and caramel, very complex. Flavor is very sour but very smooth with some wine and oak. Finish is astringent but awesome. Mouth feel is dry and sour and carbonation is average. Overall this is a delicious beer.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours amber with a reddish hue and a small tan head. The aroma has caramel, cabernet, blackberries, dark cherries, raspberries and a really nice tartness. Very complex and as wine notes are noticed than beer. Medium body that has a sharp crispness to it and small amount of subdued carbonation. The flavor starts off with sharp tartness that has the berry / fruit notes on the aroma. There is a malt backing it, but its not as assertive as it is on the aroma. The finish has a smooth maltiness that comes in and reminds you its a beer and smooths out the flavor a lot. There is a spiciness that is somewhere between phenolic, hoppy and minerals, so not sure what’s contributing. Fruit sharpness lingers for quite a while. Excellent beer. I was debating about opening a beer or wine and this nicely met both tastes.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 25, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Murky deep copper pour with a fizzy tan head which disappears almost immediately. Aroma of wood & cherries. Tart right off the bat, gives you that pinch at the back of your jaw. Fruit is very present along with the funky sourness. Mellows to a nice winey flavor, with the barrel quite present. Pretty interesting.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle purchased somewhere in Kentucky and drank in the hotel. Clear reddish brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of raspberry, funk and sour cherry. Sweet raspberry flavor followed by funk, sourness and oak before a tart raspberry finish.

rbrazell (1574) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Hazy mahogany pour with a small tan head. Lactic sourness, oak, cherry, raspberry, plum, lemon, sourdough and hay in the aroma. Tart, acidic dark fruits, raspberry, lemon peels, lactic acid, hay, sourdough, woody oak and a touch of malt. Medium bodied and strong tart ending. Wonderfully balanced. Great beer.

Thanks rbrazell! Dirty ruby brown color with no head, slight collar of bubbles. aroma of wood leather cherry and vinegar, definitely sour! Starts a bit sweet and the full sour kick. Tannic leather and wood. Very good stuff.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a cloudy Flanders-esque amberish brown with very thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Smells solid; raspberries, Cabernet, oak, and mild funk. Tastes like it smells, only better and more robust, with a nice sour, lively mouthfeel. Good stuff!
