37.5 cl bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is berries, slight alcohol and sweet. Complex and balanced sour beer. (it is very smooth). Some light alcohol in the aftertaste. An excellent beer.

DuffMan (6167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis, but drank mostly by me. Very hazy auburn with a lively beige head. Sour cherries and acetic sourness are softened by oak and vinous traits. Yum.

Brouwerij (893) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden orange with quickly settling head and stringy lace. Aroma is tart, oaky, vinous, plum, cherry, leather. Flavor is mild to moderately tart, buttery oak, with a tart, dark fruit, cherry finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and a mildly astringent finish. Very enjoyable.

NeoHippie2 (799) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2014
On tap, slightly hazy ruby pour with no head. Aromas of wine and sour cherries. Flavor is sour upfront with some subtle oak, cherry, and wine notes. Nice and tart but not over the top sour. Decent.

JBPortland (463) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2014
750ml bottle (2011 vintage) pours hazy ruby red with no head. Nose is rich tart cherry, oak, and dark fruits. Taste is sweet and sour cherry, barrel, vanilla notes, dark fruits, raisin. Finish is sour cherry, raisin, sweet notes. A touch of carbonation would have helped a lot, but the sourness held up the flavors nicely. Enjoyable.

curepute (124) - New York, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Cloudy amber. Nose of sour cherries, wood, red wine. Nice sour, tart, woody taste. It’s more a sourness that grows into a tartness and then mellows out. Wood in the back all the time. Don’t get the booze at all, really mellow, light body but put together very well. Amazing, but my only complaint is that it finishes a bit too quick.

Ferris (2041) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle - Tart and cherry oak. Tart balsamic and cherry, with hints of oak. Clear copper with no head. Really nice, but not worth the price.
