Rasmus40 (11967) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle @ Aarhus tasting. Hazy dark reddish brown with a lasting light brown head. Aroma is sweet, malty, dark fruit, sour fruit, berries, wood, tart and notes of bourbon. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate acidic. Dry and moderate acidic finish with some alcohol. Very complex, but also a bit all over the place. 040213

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Colin. Pours deep brown with a frothy tan head. Big acetic berry nose, moderate funk, vinegar. Big sweet flavor but also quite tangy, with lots of sugary dark fruits, plum, blueberry. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with lots of gooey fruits, some acetic burn, ripe berry sugars. A bit heavy handed overall, though still pretty tasty.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
A: The pour is a dark red/brown color with very minimal head on it. S: The nose is full of butter, bourbon, and alcohol. A definite lactic tartness to this with some hints of dark fruits, but the alcohol and butter are very strong. T: This has to be the booziest sour Iíve ever had. Way too much bourbon, making the flavor slightly solventy, some oak, and again: butter. Raisins, vinegar, lactic tartness, and even some sweetness. M: The body is medium with a decent level of carbonation, a slight pucker inducing sourness and a lot of heat. D: What is the big deal with this one? Iím guessing that previous barrels/bottles might have been better, but this one just missed the mark.

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
750 c&c shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a transient beige head. Aroma is like getting sour wine and wood stuffed up your nose. Woot!!!! Flavor is sour wine, musty oak, and some majorly dark treacle. This is to die for. Gets a little chocolate with time.
