Got the last pour at the Birch. Muddy and ruddy with a thick murky top. The aroma is immense, rich with glorious funkiness. It drinks quite nicely for a sour, easy going and relatively mellow. Delicious. (#4263,9/24/2011)

Tap at Churchkey. Pours clear tawny with a medium-small, bubbly white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is caramel, nutty, and bread malt with toffee and brown sugar notes, alcohol, oak, and dates. Flavor is malt dominant with some sourness, minimal hops and bitterness, oak notes and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2011
dark brown/purple, lacing white head, heavy and thin. Nose of cherry, balsamic, bit of pie sweetness. Flavor is overly sweet, fruity and bitterly oaky, light cherry. Thin, hot, bitingly carbonated with small bubbles, accents bitterness and thus unfocused impression. Mediocre.

suprchunk (2577) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Draft at Moeder Lambic. A dark toffee/caramel color with some ruby highlights. Decently sized off-white head that left a little lacing behind. Aromas reminiscent of vinegar, malt and honey. Not so much honey, but a certain sweetness in the nose that reminds me of it. Taste is pretty tart vinegar. There is a malted backbone that is present, but the sour is the main actor. Decent tart/sour mouthfeel that lasts well after swallowing. Good beer.

Tmoney99 (11803) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle 2010. Poured cloudy reddish brown with a small to minimal fizzy off-white head that diminished with little lacing. Heavy complex tannic grape and wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour grape flavor with medium tp heavy tannic & sour finish of medium to long duration. This is a very good complex beer.

Travlr (15613) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle at Ebenezer Kezar’s, shared with Niell and Greg. Murky amber color, scant white head. Aroma of sour plums, dates, cherries. Taste is deeply sour, more than it’s age would suggest, and aggressive port wine and stone fruits. Should age well.

Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Amber colored brew. Very sour, but not in a bad way. Very drinkable.
