COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

What the hell is this? Tastes like apple cider vinegar. Thats all i get is tons of apple cider vinegar and a tiny amount of sweet cherry. Not good at all.

BelgianBeerGal (3240) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Traded bottle, Batch 2012-1, best by 03-2014. Hazy brown pour with just a white ring around the edges. Slightly sour aroma with a slightly acetic finish. Big tart flavor at first, a little malt in the middle and then a relatively short finish. A little earthiness/mustiness in there. Pretty bold. Nice.

Pours orange amber mostly clear with barely a grey head. Aroma is subte, tang, tropical fruit, and a tad bit of barbecue. Body is thinner bring light cherry and tart candy with a drier sweet tangy yeast.

750 ml bottle to tulip (shared by tastybeer). Looks good; a cloudy amberish brown with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; tart and funky with notes of cherry. Tastes like it smells with some tannic notes. Good beer!

Bottle, meh, just a glass of apple vinegar, no sweetness or anything, one dimensional and very acetic

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Thanks Matt! Hazy, ruby red color; minimal head/lace.

Oaky as hell. So much barrel; borders on too much barrel. Dark cherries. Fruity blend with oak, soured grain, yeast. I prefer #3, I still love this.

alexsdad06 (5866) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
750 ml bottle at large tasting. Pours a deep copper color with a slight haze and a medium sized frothy off white head. The aroma and flavor had tart fruits, cherry, lemony citrus, oak, mild sweetness, light funk with a touch of musty grape vinous character. The sour character was more prominent on the flavor. Decent.

TomDecapolis (4539) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Pours a hazy brownish red with little to no head. Aroma of tart cherries, raspberries, oak, vanilla and funk. Flavor of tart cherry pie, moderate sourness, other berries and lactic acid.

Nice funky sour, very pucker worthy, can taste the oak. Even after a year pours beautiful dark amber.
