COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scheduled for release on the first Friday of May 2010, this sour red has been patiently maturing in oak barrels for 18 months and will be bottle conditioned a further 4 months prior to release. Why ’the Jaspers’ you ask? Check out Frank Herberts novel ’The Santaroga Barrier’ and find out.

A: The pour is a dark amber color with a somewhat minimal off-white/khaki head. S: The nose is sour cherries, vinegar, and a bit of oak. The lactic acidity is there but not the primary aroma and only a bit of funk. T: Quite a bit of cherries to the flavor, which is nice. A fair amount of acetic and lactic acids, and a light funk that is somewhat wet oak/hay in nature. M: The body is medium with a decent level of carbonation and a dry, slightly tart, finish. D: A good barrel aged beer from Bullfrog. Not quite as good as Black Cherry Bomb, for example, but still a pretty good beer.

nickd717 (3466) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 1, 2010
750ml bottle thanks to soulforpeanuts. Pours a dark hazy reddish color with a small off-white head leaving nice foam. The aroma has lots of good cherry aspects, maybe some other red berries. Pretty good flavor. Starts with big sour cherry and raspberry, but ends with a slight dirty note and little bleu cheese, which is rather. Still pretty tasty but not great. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Fairly refreshing for the style actually. A good but not outstanding wild ale.

Backlog from sour fest. I think that this came from Dasilky, but I’m not sure. Pours orange with a nice tan head. Nose is sweet. Taste is rich, tart and funky with some sour cherry notes.

Godofthecellar (650) - NYC, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Poured a hazy cherry red. Nose was oak, bourbon and dark fruit. Flavor was typical bull frog dark sour base with a nice sour ending. Much better as it came to room tem, and significantly better than oud 15
