Awesome beer. Super sour with cherries and a hint of green apple. A little oaky wood in there too. Nice bit of funk. I would love to try this one again with a couple years of aging.

Shared 750 ml. bottle after sampling #3. Poured to snifters with a deeper, hazed orangy hue, a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spotty cling to the lacing. The nose was light, but cleaner yeasty funk than #3, so no horse blanket, but more fruitiness, sourness, and vinous/grape qualities. More spritz & effervescence was noticed, and the finish was pleasantly dry.

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.

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.

A cloudy brown beer with a quickly dissipating beige head. The aroma is wood, vanilla, cherry, and citrus. The flavor is wood and vanilla up front with a very nice tart cherry that intensifies in the finish. Quite sour but also quite delicious.

Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Pours dark orange. Boring boozy aroma. Flavor is better, with tangerines and oranges, salty alcohol, light fusel, acetic and leathery.

Pours a ruby murky rusty color with a touch of mocha colored head that dissipate immediately. RIpe dark fruit aromas of rotted fig, wet bark, sour cherry and a mulled vanilla rise from the background. On the palate this is a well made perfectly balanced sour red with great finesse. Good measures of acidity, funk and antiquity come through beautifully. Gonna lay one down for a bit and see what happens...

Opened at the end of year Ottawa tasting. Hazy amber with an off white head. Bourbon seemed muted on this one although there was a decent amount of oak, a nice tartness, caramel malt and doughiness, some brett, alcohol was balanced but present, moderate body and carbonation, nice tartness throughout
