750 mL thanks to GT2! Rich dark mahogany pour with a small bubbly head. Classic dark sour with fig, plum, vinous tartness, sour unripe peach. Touches of acetic/balsamic, but not overdone. Good stuff.

750ml bottle, thanks GT2. Poured a brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is boozy malts and some light funk notes. Flavor is some roasted malt notes, some dried fruits, some tartness in here most certainly.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Very dark brown color, beige head. Aroma of sour prunes in coffee. Taste is very sour dark fruit, citrus. A bit too sour for me, and I like sours.

750mL thanks to a generous BA. Pours a clear, deep maroon. Yellowish foam dissipates relatively quickly. Nose is spot on oud bruin, similar to De Dolle Oerbier Reserva, heavy red wine barrel, seedy raspberry jam, steak fat. Taste is pretty spot on: minerally, red wine, spicy acetic (mild), lime juice (very big), raspberry jam. Palate is lactic, clean, refreshing. Really impressive for style. Iím a fan :)

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a haze. Nose is caramel, red grapes, bourbon, oak and tart cherry. Slick and oily, juicy with a sour bite. Taste is sour cherry, cinnamon and cranberry that almost becomes too sweet before the bourbon licks in. I liked a good whiskey sour back in the day.

Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Certainly a bit acetic on the nose. Plenty of dark fruit such as raisin, cherry, and plum. A touch of earth, some oak, and bourbon. A bit of toffee sweetness, too. The flavor is sour and acetic, but has some malt sweetness to balance it. Lots of fruit character, bourbon, oak, and a light earthy, mushroom-like funk.

750ml bottle. Thanks to Todd for the opportunity... Pours a deeper mahogany cherry dark pour, somewhat murky, and topped with a thin layer of soapy white head... Aroma of sour cherry and brown ale. Slightly acidic with a touch of earth. Solid sour but nothing extraordinary... Flavors are more of the same with sour cherry earth and a touch at dark grain. Fairly clean with a touch of acidity. Light to medium bodied. With semi-lively carbonation.
