On tap at Bellís. Amazing flavor. Honestly one of the best beers I have had. Tremendous sour note with no overreaching sweetness, complex flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(draft @ Bellís Eccentric Cafe - Kalamazoo, MI) Deep copper pour with a very thin white head. Huge tart and sour funky aroma with some very mild fruit and malt notes. Mainly that tart and bitter. Flavor is a huge tart bomb in your mouth. Huge funky and sour notes with just the right amount of sweetness to take it away but it leaves that sour and tart feeling in the sides of your mouth. Phenomenal. Probably in the top 5 sours Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 On tap at Bells, it is a loverly color, wit a hearty yeasty nose. As a sour, it refreshes with a bit of bite. It is altogether without the normal oily feeling left after other sours. If they sold growlers of the stuff, it would be heaven.

Tasted from 750mL bottle at Lush CBC event. Pours clear amber with thin white quickly dissipating head. Nose of dried papaya, brett funk, and peach skin. Flavors are sour with brett, plum, milk chocolate, and a bunch of peach. The carbonation is lively and stings the tongue with a less than medium body. Finish is almost tannic and drying with a plum flavor. Overall, this is an awesome wild ale.

750 mL bottle shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Bottle 88 of 370, batch K10596. Pours a clear amber color with a medium creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of huge lemon notes as well as other citrus, some earthy notes and caramel malts. The taste is earthy notes, plums, citrus, cranberry, cherry and a slight vegetal note. Tart throughout. High carbonation, medium bodied and extremely drinkable. I was excited to try this and it exceeded my expectations. Very, VERY well done Bells.

This one poured a semi hazy medium red color with a beige head. Aroma was of vinegar, berries, grain, and some lemon juice. Flavor was very complex. a mix of tartness, medium funk, light apple vinegar and lots of berry fruitiness in the swallow. Great stuff.

On tap at the Bellís eccentric cafe. Aroma:A little bit of cherries, some sourness. Appearance:Reddish-brown, a little murky, very little head. Taste:Thereís a mild sour fruity tartness on the foretaste. The flavors dissipate quickly after the foretaste until it just lingers slightly on the aftertaste. One nice thing about this one is that the palate doesnít get used to the sourness, so every sip seems as tasty as the first. Palate:Light to medium body. Thereís a harsh acidic astringency that hits the back of the throat. Overall:This is a great flemish red. Itís a little subdued compared to some, but perhaps because of that very easy to drink.

Samples at Mich Brewerís Fest and sample bottles at Eccentric. Moderately sour. I get earthy blueberries. Pretty straightforward but damn tasty. Not much funk at all.
