Pours a dark brown with a creamy biege head. Nose is a dark sour with cherry, some vinous notes, and a sweet tartness in the finish. Taste is similar- nice oak, sour cherry, vinous fruit, and tartness. Great beer.

mcberko (13025) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
12 oz. bottle, sent from Alen (thanks man), pours a deep dark mahogany / dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is extremely vinous, with strong red wine notes, wild yeast, tart red fruits, and some slight counteracting sweetness. Flavour is extremely complex and vinous, full of red wine barrels, wood tannins, moderately tart red berries, and some moderate wild yeast presence. The red wine barrels are the most prominent flavour characteristic, adding deep layers of complexity. Excellent stuff.

12oz bottle, thanks to adnielsen. Bottled 8/17/11. Dark brown color. Decent thin khaki head. Impressive washes of lace. Nice musty, tart wine-barrel nose. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Great sour, tart woody taste. Good strong tartness, just short of puckering. Iím enjoying the level of sour, makes for a great tasty after-dinner sipper. Just a very light bite in the finish. Red grape skins... Hints of chocolate. Big, tart raspberry flavor. Took me a long time to finish, but I enjoyed every bit of it.

Such a solid series of beers. This one has more dark fruits, tannins, wine, and of course a buttload of sourness.

12oz bottle split two ways (thank God because itís intense). Dark cola color, short fizz if a head and decent lacing. Smells like sour fruit, alcohol and barrel. Tastes like sour fruit, wood, hint of chocolate which I was not expecting and some alcohol. This was very intensely sour and the flavors seemed combative but I still enjoyed it.

Served in an Avery goblet. Prune like with some wine notes. Oak and dark fruits. Some tannins. Fairly acidic. Just sour; not complex at all.

Bottle at home shared with my wife. Poured a dark brown, with a red tint and no head. Wood, vinegar, cherry, vegetables, acetone, and hairspray in the aroma. Taste is red wine vinegar, cherry pit, light funk, nail polish, oak, and tang with a mouth-puckering sour finish that continues to linger sip after sip. Light body with little-to-no carbonation. A very sour beer with wine-like characteristics. Nicely balanced with wood, vinegar, and sweetness all melding very well.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear reddish brown color with an average to large frothy off-white head that motly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart, wood and sour grape aroma. Medium to full body and a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex beer that exceeded my expectations.
