Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a murky brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is funk and sour fruit. Thin mouth with cherry skin, oak, light funk, lingering tartness, good.

DuffMan (7338) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle, shared with friends on game night. Murky orange amber, minimal head formation. Musty, yeasty aroma, light acetic sourness. Mouthfeel is tampered by low carbonation, but the flavours are nice enough: unripened berries, caramel, yoghurty lactic sourness, musty cork.

Tasted on 10/7/14 with the Savages from a capped 750mL bottle sent to me as an awesome extra in a trade. Pours muddy brown orange with an average tan head that leaves thick lace. The nose is vinous, super sour, nice caramel malt, and super funky. The flavor is a bit maltier and oaky, with the sourness coming through a bit less vinous, but very balanced. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long, nicely sour and caramel malt finish.

JBPortland (1024) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 18, 2014
750ml bottle pours semi-clear ruby blood red with small finger of head. Nose is tart musty dark cherry, damp tree bark, molasses, brown sugar. Taste is tart sweet dark fruits, cherry, berries, red grape, musty wet wood. Finish is semi sweet tart mildly acidic fruit, faint metallic coppery note which eventually fades as it warms, woody funk, vinous fruit.

The body has a dark and murky appearance with a dark brownish burgundy color and some lighter reddish high lights. Near the edges of the glass there are some tine bubbles of carbonation. The head is a small, creamy off white layer of foam that slowly fades to just a small ring of tiny bubbles. Lacing is slick and minimal. Its aroma has nice tart fruit, funky earthy yeast notes with a hint of oak. The flavor starts with a semi-sweet malty base with a wonderfully complex mix of dry tart fruit, funky earthy east and wood. Some fruit notes that pop out are sour cherries, dry wine like grapes, and tart apple skins. All these flavors work in perfect harmony and its 11%abv is well hidden. It adds another layer of complexity and mellow warmth to the palate. It has a medium body with a silky light texture and soft carbonation.

Bottle shared thanks to scotchzi! Pours a hazy copper with floating particulate, fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma is acetic sourness, dark fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is sour dark fruits, crazy esters, and a nice vinegar sour overtone. Very nice, no booziness, good carbonation.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a dark copper color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor is woody, dark fruits, tart, earthy, light funk, caramel with a touch of vinegar. This one seems to be doing pretty well unlike the 05.
