bhensonb (10689) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pours purple/reddish/berry/copper with a creamy pinkish head. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It is definitely a sour (based on balck berry-12 months in oak - 6 months with berries). It is berry sour. There’s astringent oak. It’s wonderful.

A: The pour is a dark reddish, purple in the glass with a nice pink foam on top. S: The nose is, unfortunately, somewhat buttery which covers up the tartness and acidity. The blackberries are there, but not as prominent as I would have thought. T: Luckily, there is some improvement in the flavor with a nice lactic tartness which works very nicely with the sweet blackberry flavor. There is a mustiness and a mild funk which is very pleasing. M: A lighter bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation and a somewhat dry finish. D: A good beer, for sure, but perhaps I was expecting more. The nose was a bit off-putting, but the flavors made up for it.

Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2011
A wine red ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, a superb sweet lactic berry with sweet wine, light Brett, very nice. In mouth, a nice kriek like ale with nice epsom salt, black currant, light but refreshing. Excellent. On tap at brewpub July 31 2011.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Woodshop 5.0 Ruby/pink pour, fluffy white head. Cheesy aroma with some berries and wood. Flavor is sour and mix of some sweet berries. Oaky and a bit odd. A bit of butter notes and something else odd. But highly enjoyable for sure.

Growler… This beer rocks!… Clear, beautiful ruby ale with a small, creamy, off-white/pinkish head. Smells like a blackberry SweetTart, if there were such a thing - tart and fruity (berries). Medium-bodied and caustic with lively carbonation. The flavor totally lives up to the aroma – tart and fruity (berries) with just a whisper of butter. Finishes tart, acerbic, and then Mojave-dry. Kudos to GoT for sharing his growler of this world class beer!
