On draught for Zwanze Day 2013, Avenue Pub! Pours a hazy reddish brown with thin bubbly head that holds carbonation but doesn’t lace. Aroma is funky barnyard, vinegar sourness, dry fruits. Taste is more sour than the nose, less of the funkiness, nice dark fruit notes. No hint of the high abv, very nicely done.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 12.09.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice slightly bubbly longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry, lots of oak, paint, vinegar, overripe red berries, grass, hints of caramel. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish, vinegar, red berries, sugar, oak, grass, caramel, sorrel, paint. Very nice one, but I think this one is more like a sour red / brown. And I’d never have guessed that this one was 11% ABV. Some years aging will also do this one very good.

rumproasts (3574) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Tap. Deep amber with small head. Sour biere de garde. Quite decent, but not outstanding. Some of the malts seem to clash a bit with the sourness.

radagast83 (5361) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Poured a clear but deep red/brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was tart cherry notes, some light vinegar character. Flavor was mostly tart cherries, some barrel character. Alcohol is there, but it’s a lot more smooth than I expected it would be.

Draft. Pours ruby without much of a head. Big super tart and fruity aroma. Sour stone fruits, a bit of roasted malt, mild vinegar and cherries. Taste is puckering tart, cherries, oak, bits of vanilla. Dry and super crisp finish. A great summertime sipper.
