COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wood aged Pale Quadruppel. Imagine a blend of Scaldis and Cantillon Pure Kriek. Forget it, there is nothing like it (yet). Vlad is shocking to your sour beer senses and taste buds, which do not understand that such a balanced delicate sour beer can be so drinkable and appeal to so many people while being extreme. But donít forget, it will still open a can of 10.6% whoop-ass on your ass after all the pomp & circumstance of what an amazing beer it is subsides.

(GABF 2010) clear gold with white soapy bubbles. Nose of berries, tart cherries and funk. Taste is very tart, vinous, tobacco and grapes. Soft carbonation, and extremely long tangerine linger.

Aroma:Huge overpowering sour aroma. Some grapes in there. Appearance:Cloudy and golden in color. Taste:Great clean sour flavor. Some wine notes. Not as sour as the smell might suggest though. Palate:There is some harsh astringency that Iíve grown to expect from sours. Overall:A very drinkable sour beer.

On tap at Cascade Brewing Barrell House. Served in a tulip. Poured a cloudy orange with white head. Aroma and flavor both sour with some nice citrus in and wood in the flavor. A bit of alcohol noted, but not too much. Would have probably rated higher, but not a huge fan of the styl as Iím new to it. Would try again though.

Man this is good stuff. I could drink this all day - although at 10.6%, itíd be a short day...Smells woody, sour, and citrusy. Flavor is really too complex to try to describe, but Iíll say lemon and vinegar, ans some oaky notes. Subtle bourbon, too. Really, really good. Thanks to Photekut for this one!

Complex, vinous, red fruits and vanilla aroma. Flavor is a bit disappointingly light and flat, lacking the multi-dimensionality of the aroma.

From a bottle shared at the Jester King Grand Opening. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a finger-width, very frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing throughout. Aroma is sour with lots of sweet citruses. Tart grapes and white wine, apricots, sweet lemons, grapefruits, apples, horse blanket funk, oak, pears, and a light honey bread maltiness. Flavor is similar. Lots of tart apples and grapes with a sweeter citrus. More apricot, honey bread, oak, pear, tangerines, grapefruits, sweet and sour lemons, funk, a faint touch of spice, and some other pale malts with a light sweetness. Finishes dry, clean, and sour with a light alcohol warmth. Some citrus-grass too before leaving a lengthy, tart aftertaste. Medium-light body and a moderate, soft carbonation. Overall, a really nice sour. Welcoming alcohol presence and light sweetness really go well with the bigger sourness. I like the current level of citrus and not too over-the-top funkiness. Very dry and drinks nicely. Solid.

Bottle from levifunk...thanks Levi! - Pours light hazy amber with a small bubbly white head. Pretty sharp on the nose, with alcohol and oak, nail polish, and a little citrus. Taste is real citrusy, sour orange rind and a bit of tartness, but the quad dark fruit sweetness balances it out a bit. Finishes with a tannic dryness. Lots of frothy carbonation. Interesting, but too boozy and just not integrated well enough.
