DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid deep brown with minimal head. Nose is intense tartness, vinous fruit, cherry, oak, heat. Tastes incredibly smooth, with big fruit, cherries, grapes, malt, lactic acid, wood, tannins. I even get some cinnamon/nutmeg in this. Smooth finish with evolving complexity as it warms.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Tasted during Nepenthia. Tap sample. Beautiful hazy sort of crimson / brick / red color. Minimal head. Bigger sour taste, kind of floral, a touch of cherry. Mild sour bite in the finish. Light slick texture. Very light carbonation. Medium-plus body. Bit too sour for me, but a nice one to sip on and try.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 Tap (TCBW15) (6:4:5:2:9=2.6)
Massive sour aroma, woody and acidic. Over-the-top acidic palate. Quite acetic - it actually burns my pipes. Looked a nice red though. And the cherry aspects were very pleasant. I like sours, but this is too much of a good thing - it’s been pushed too far and has failed. I never want aceticity in a drink.
Rerate: 330ml bottle - shared by ElviraS - thanks! (6:3:6:3:13=3.1)
Woody, sweaty, sour aroma. Apricot, wood glue, sour taste. Ditto finish. No alcohol obvious. Aceticity lower than before, less harsh. Fresh and crisp.

PabloZab (1077) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Tap (VI FDP). Barwa miedziano-czerwona, piana kremowa, slaba, nietrwala. Aromat intensywny, winny, owocowy z delikatna nuta wanilii. W smaku kwasne, takie mega sour. O ile w aromacie byla wanilia to w smaku aromatow beczkowych brak. Posmak mega kwaskowy. Piwo specyficzne, kwasne ale w sumie lekkie w odczuciu.
