Bottle from Kensington Wine Market Calgary. Wicked sour. Strong oak aromas with tanic cherry flavour. Good but I like very very sour - might be a bit much...

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
Duff’s rating pretty much sums up my own: Hazy red amber, and nearly completely still-- no head on this at all. Aroma and flavour are intensely sour and vinegary. Acidic and unpleasant, harsh in the throat. Beyond any subtlties of "sour cherries"etc, this was just too much. Can a sour beer be off? I don’t know man... I would just add that I think it can be off. Others seemed to like this but my bottle drank like some kind of spoiled rancid vinegar. I split it with someone and we ended up drainpouring half the bottle. Maybe it was a bad beer but if it wasn’t this is a horrible, horrible beer that need not be brewed again.

RumRunner101 (876) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Smells like a red wine - berry, oak, plum. Quite tart with flavours of bitter berries. Very vinegary. I tried this along with some other heavier ales so it may have thrown off my palate. I’ll have to re-rate on its own.

Wolfbass (969) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 4, 2012
Colore ambrato torbo con assenza completa di schiuma. Al naso in evidenza marasche e amarene, e acetico. In bocca è molto equilibrata fra l’acetico pungente e il fruttato. Buona davvero...

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Poured a dark ruby color with no head. Smell was all funk and dried cherries. taste was very thin. Lots of dried cherries and angain funk in this. Vinegary aftertaste. This was sour at first, but had a sweetness to it also. Interesting to say the least. I thought it was a good beer, but not best.

Sammy (9448) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
Interesting aroma, light funk and fruit, chestnut. Pours medium brown coloured body with absolutely not head. Bottled in 2009, bought through private Quebec order. Very light cherry taste, a little fruit sugar, otherwise very balanced and nice.
