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 don’t 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.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 Tap @ Cascade Barrelhouse [finally open!]... It was about time I got my mitts on this infamously hyped beer. Poured clear amber/orange with a white head.  The nose was candied, quite sweet with a light yeast funk.  The lacto is so clean compared to brett.   Some acidity going on, maple sweet sugars, lactic, quite sour and tart.  Ginger, apples, light fruit.  Like a tart, ripe fruit with a lot of sweetness.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 23, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2011 Medium orange-gold color with a thin, very fine white head. Aroma consists of deeply complex toasted malt with significant oxidative notes and bourbon barrel aging characteristics—soft caramel, vanilla, and oak spice. A trailing of a faint, ripe wine-like fruitiness can be detected. Highly complex, multi-layered, and multi-textured flavor profile conveys a light yet densely constructed mélange of tastes. Brightly sour and spicy flavors with bitter top notes come on at first, and are followed by a light toasted malt presence interwoven with a vinous fruitiness. Spice, vanilla, and soft caramel characteristics contribute delicate, well-balanced nuances while downplayed bourbon notes fill a secondary role. A cloak of sourness gently envelops everything. Very well hidden alcohol notes create a structured, light body that remains subservient to the flavor profile it supports, but pokes through with some sweet fruitiness at the very end. Some well-integrated, slightly sweet maltiness lifts into a delicately-textured, multi-layered finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2879) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Sampled at GABF! Really happy I had a chance to try this!!! Dark 24 karat pour with a peach hue and small ivory head. Tons of orange peel, cherry skin, and funky lemon sourness. Balsamic vinegar, a little brown sugar, and fruit. Also some lactic qualities. Really unique but didn’t really get the Quad or wood in this one. Tasty but not earth shattering.

Plovmand (6755) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle provided by Sune and Bager. Thanks a bunch guys! Hazy deep golden with a medium off white head. The aroma is cherries, fruit, acid, wood and brett. The flavour is very fruity with some rest sugar, acid, cherry and brett. Very complex and addictive. Loved it!

illidurit (2224) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Rad unlabeled bottle, 09 vintage, courtesy Sam. Dark orange color with an orangish creamy head. Citrusy and grainy aroma, also some bruised apple going on here. Boozy, warming flavor, lots of candied lemon and tart fruit salad notes. Kind of a sour tripel character. A little bit of unwelcome solvent but overall pretty interesting.

GABF 2009 Backlog. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of funky belgian esters- lemon, hay, burlap, etc. Extremely balanced, and the acetic and lactic finish is not overpowering. One of my favorites from the session

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
2009 vintage bottle from the brewery. Deep orange color with a medium white head. Tart aroma with lots of fruit; apple is apparent. Sour flavor with light malt and a nice bright fruitiness. Medium-light body with an acidic finish. Good straight-ahead flavors but just not as interesting as some of their fruit sours.
