In bottle at the Red Rose. Pours a brown colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with a lovely sour pickled onion character. Moderate carbonation and light CO2 prickle with a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely.

Pours a medium brown color, with a HUGE beige head. Tart and sour, with some light spice notes. A little bit of sweetness, too.

Melanoidin-reddish body with a browned caramel head that flushly covers the glass and settles down nicely. Distinct horsey brett nose punctuated by sweet tart. Mellowed, wood-aged tart and brett-tinged body. The sourness is contained and massaged nicely into a complex experience that does not stray towards extremes. Medium-bodied and fairly sessionable for the style.

Half-pint @ Chuck’s. Tasty sour though rather standard. $10 a pint?!? Good God, man, that’s crazy. Grabbed a half-pint ’cause that’s how I roll. Sour in all the places and very drinkable.

12oz bottle, I believe I got from knightly spirits on orange blossom. Dark brown pour with a slight off-white head. Aroma of tart cherry, light vinegar and wood. Tastes are tart, white grapes, cherry, some dark fruit, and caramel. Sourness putters out a bit in the finish. Crisp and very drinkable overall. Enjoyed it.

Schiuma poco persistente. Aroma fruttato, maltato, con note acetiche. sapore dolce non pienamente smorzato dall’acidità. Corpo leggero

Poured from a botetle into a pint glass. Appearance is a dark, slightly mrky brown with a thin head of beige foam. In the aroma is a pleasant green apple tartness with a nice dark candied fruit in the background. In the taste its primarily a pleasant sourness with a nice balance of dark malt sweetness.

Red brownish, small tan head.
Fruity but acidic aroma.
The taste was in balance as well. Some sweets but sour for sure! A little bitter in the finish.
