Bottle shared in Hoboken. Pours mostly clear amber with a creamy, off-white head. The nose has tart berries, leather, wood. Light to medium sweet flavor, fairly acidic, with further tart berries, lemons. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Tart, cleansing finish with more lemons and leathery berries. Pretty nice.

I like it a lot. ... Aroma is woody, nutty, sharp and cherrys. Taste is acetic acid, wood, berry fruitiness, and a bit of booze which is strange for such a low abv. Good beer though.

Pour from a 12 oz. bottle at FOBAB. Pours a cloudy dark brown-amber color with a finger of tan head. Notes of berry and tart citrus fruits, caramel (candy apple), brown sugar, oak, red wine, lactic acid, and a bit of balsamic. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet and sour mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nicely done, but struck me kind of as a sour brown in style.

Bottle, found somewhere in STL. Medium brown with a small head. Quite acetic. Some balsamic, salty driftwood. Dark forest fruits, cherry skin. Taste isnít as muscular as the aroma. Light lemon spritz. Lemon warhead. Some musty wood and cherry skin. Light and zippy. Full carbonation. Quite interesting.

Pours almost black with solid white head. Not what I was expecting. Taste is medium to strong sour that isn't tart as much as it is acidic. Barrel aging is good on this one. There is definitely a wine component here that goes really well with the beer. Some nice fruits in here and nice balance on the flavors. Really fun.
