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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Bottle. Golden hazy pour with a tan head. Super lactic tart aromas. Flavor is tart fruit, but less acidic then the aroma would suggest.

750mL bottle, several years old. Poured clear, fiery orange with a nice cap of mostly white head. The aroma picked up strong berried vinegar and oaky notes over softer berry meat, darker fruits, and rich bread.. warm and engaging. The flavor opened with a tart kick of cherry skins, oak, and vinegar, with the cherries driving through the rest of the drink.. notes of molasses, dates, dark fruit, and rich cherry meat supported.. peppery bourbon and vinous notes joined cherry zest and oak on the edges.. finished sour (but not overly so) with some belly warmth. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation.. good feel from the sourness, but I wanted to get more of the base beer from it.

I like this one but didnít quite live up the the reputation. From the wild ales Iíve had it doesnít seem that they need to be this high in abv. As such, it was a little heavier and sweeter than the best wilds iíve had. Pours cloudy yellow with a lot of carbonation. Funky, a little bourbon, and sweet white fruit (think apricot). dry finish

Bottle share. Pour is hazy orange with a small frothy head. Aroma is of cherries, lemon peel, vanilla, roasted marshmallow, bourbon, and tartness. Flavor is on the sweet side with vanilla, oak, and slight booze in the foreground. Also has notes of citrus peel and white wine in the finish. Great beer!

Bottle pour into a tulip during #bottlecherwednesdays at Beachwood BBQ. Hazy yellow-orange in color with a thin white head that settles quickly. Aroma is sour, tart, oaky, apple cider vinegar, unripe orchard fruit especially apple, and grape skin. Flavor starts with moderate woody tartness followed by apple cider sweetness, thereís some acid on the finish. Light bodied, thin in texture, high carbonation, dry finish.

Vintage í09 A: Pours a dark apricot ale with excellent clarity. Single finger of loosely packed off-white head falls quickly to a thin, broken sheet of the same. Little lacing. S: Crisp apples, berries. The bourbon is quite evident on this one. Much more so than I had anticipate. Sour vinegar on the nose. Really nice. T: Like sour cola, bourbon. Woody. The beer is very complex. M: Medium to light body with low carbonation. O: Very good beer. I enjoyed this very much and plan to open another soon. Serving type: bottle 04-25-2011

Vinous aroma with oak and some vanilla. Some fruity esters that I can't nail down, maybe from the wood aging or wine barrels. Definitely can smell the bourbon barrel in the aroma, but it is faint and pleasant. Taste is awesome. Vinous of maybe 6 or 7. Not overpowering. Very balanced. Get the oak flavors and vanilla of the bourbon and some slight sweet that tastes a bit of grape. Possibly from the wine barrels? Slight bitter in the middle and then finishes slight sweet. So much going on with this beer and not one flavor dominates. Great balance. Slightly low carbonation, but very minor. Awesome beer!!! On the verge of a 5. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared with friends last July. Pours copper-apricot with small head and lace. Aroma of flowers, sour apricot, barnyard. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of funky sour fruit rind, sour persimmon fruit, and some sweet fruit. Overall super flavorful and funky, sweet and barnyard.
