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.

Steve_0 (3730) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle at Dan’s house. Pour is hazy peach in appearance with a small off-white head. Cherry, peach skin, tannin, fruit pit, light cheese, spice, barnyard, and leather in the aroma. Taste is super sour, heavy acetone, light vinegar, peach, tannin, oak, and yeast with a long-lasting acidic finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Nice sour!

Enjoyable clean flavor. Sour was powerful, but not overpowering. All around wonderful!

Leighton (17258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle at THE Sour and Saison Tasting, London. Pours hazy, brown-gold with a light, white foam head. Some sweet, bready malts in the nose, light tang. Medium sweet flavor with some vinegar character, light leather and ripe berries. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately dry to finish with light warmth, some more leather, brown bread, light vinegar, berries. Good, biting tartness in here, with some lovely nuance.

Dogbrick (10752) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Sample at Falling Rock Beer Tasting with Dr. Bill on 10/13/2012. This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of grapes and bready malt. Medium body with a vinous character and notes of crackery malt and touches of hops. The finish is fruity with an earthy malt aftertaste. Good overall.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle poured into glass. Good bit of sour funk in this one. Nice balance between the fruit characteristics and the tartness. Easily drinkable and the ABV is masked extremely well. Very good sour!

750ml bottle shared by Greg, thanks! Pours an unclear orange with a decent off white head and lacing, the aroma is full of fruit notes that have a strong funky background at the same time, the flavor has a good amount of funk and sourness on the front end with a finish of fruity, really nice bubbly mouthfeel, good stuff.

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!

GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours copper brown with thin fizz. Picking up more of the lacto than brett on this one. Great sour cherry notes dominate. Not getting any perceptible bourbon. Puckeringly sour. Dryish finish.

Backlog. Small taste of a 750 ml bottle last Saturday night. Funky, sour and fruity with a light mustiness. Held up pretty well.
