Draught at Sour Fest. Clear dark brown with small white head. Aroma of woodiness, sweet malts, funky brett and light alcohol. Taste is malty for a sour. Big malt backbone supports funky brett taste; sweetness from malts is balanced by sourness from brett. Medium carbonation, medium bodied.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Hand bottled from Charleston Beer Exchange. Red wine-like aromas, rich berry aromas, raspberry, dark cherry with hints of vanilla hints of tartness. Pours a dark red almost brown with a thin white head. Tart and malty upfront, with a great fruitiness, dark raspberries, tart cherries oaky with vanilla notes, just the right amount of tartness and funk.

A light brett sourness on the aroma. Unfiltered apple cider appearance. Lighter ale flavor with an apple cider-like finish...maybe some wood notes. Notes: On tap at the Pints for Prostates/Denver Rare Beer Tasting at Wynkoop Brewing Co, 2009 Great American Beer Fest According to Adam "It canít go bad, itís already bad!"

beerguy101 (5286) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Tasted at the 4th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/14/2009. This sour ale pours a medium brown color form the tap. Medium to full white sized foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, tart and funk. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and tart, sour and funky. Nice balance. Touch of wood. Very smooth tasting for all that is going on here. Nice blend of beer and barrels. Some funk, some fruit and some wood. Is this really the last barrel of this beer in existence? If so, it may be time to mix up a new batch. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest in Hayward. Only 5.8 -bals produced? Wow, I feel special now. This was supposedly the last keg ever in existence. So if I were an 8-year-old version of myself, Iíd be saying "neener neener" or something like that. Pours a hazy dark reddish brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is red wine, wood, red berries, and bretty funk. Very nice. Flavor is very vinous, along with cherry and raspberry notes, port, oak barrels, brett, and some lactic sourness. Palate is mildly acidic with medium body and low carbonation, very wine-like really. Best beer Iíve ever had...thatís named after a cartoon character...maybe.

Draught at the Bistro Barrel Aged festival 09. Last keg in existence? With a description like that, I had to give this one a shot. Brown pour with a small head. Sweet malty and funky aroma with plenty of brett character, wine, and oak. The flavor is a bit hot with alcohol and has a nice clean sourness. Brett is also apparent, and adds a rather modest leathery twang. Malty, but also dried out by the wild stuff. Good flavors overall, but I think this just dried out a bit too much to the point where the alcohol got to be a little too present. I could see myself really liking this a lot if it were of more modest strength.

Draft @ Bistro Barrel Aged Festival. Pours a murky brown color; light tan head with good retention and mixed-bubbled lacing. Pleasant amounts of tart red fruits, raspberries, citrus; nicely complex sourness in the nose; quite nice. Medium mouthfeel: lots of complex light tartness, ripe red fruits (strawberries, cherries) with some bandaid notes, citrus, and overripe notes as well; low tartness, but not flabby, solid, and better than the Platypus. Medium finish: red fruits, toastiness, no alcohol. Decent.
