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.

A big light berry sour smell comes off it. Not a big sour but a decent tart comes off. A small boozy background as it warms. Good stuff.

Sample at first sunday. Got the last pour so a little bit of yeast and grit at the end. Still really complex though. Fruit and fund and wood and oak. A lot going on in the aromas and flavors. Red fruit and plum flavors. Little bit of spice on the finish as well. Every sip is something different and new which is a mark of a ridiculous sour for me.

chinchill (1900) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
750 ml shared bottle. Nice hazy red-amber color. Strong sour aroma with a very rich and complex flavor. Barrel aging is exceptionally well done, with enough added flavor to enhance but not overpower the other, mostly fruity, properties. Moderately tart.

2011 750ml bottle pours a hazy light gold with a thin off white head. Big oak vanilla and slight tart finish.

750 c&c from Belmont Station. Pours hazy burnt copper with a transient head. Aroma is sour oaky fruit - reminds of BFM. Med + body. Itís tart, mildly sour, and mixedly fruity. Starts cherry, oak, tart/sour, gets a sweetness towards the end of each quaff; sort of. Itís almost sour and sweet at the same time. Almost. Not a trace of heat. Challenges the palate. Excellent.

marcus (6538) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper with almost no head and a fruity aroma. There is a tart cherry flavor that quickly turns sweet then leaves a sour taste on the palate. Strange but delicious. The abv is surprisingly not detectable.

umich03jm (2007) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2014
2011 bottle thanks to FullObs I believe. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a big foamy head that fades normally and leaves some lacing. Awesome aroma. Lots of oak and vanilla mix in with sour apples, strawberries, citrus peel, and light Brett. Taste again brings a bunch of oak flavor which I love. Sourness is moderate which is perfect for me. Abv is incredibly well hidden, drinks like itís 5%. I love how the citrus and fruitiness balances with the barrel character. Up there with my favorite sours Iíve had to date.

memories of last night.... Very boozy, minimal carbonation, almost flat 2011 bottle. Some minor sour cherry notes. not brashly tart, very oaky. lots of barrel. strong.

poisoneddwarf (1717) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle, 2011 Project, shared with brenn79. 10.81% ABV. Aroma is extremely oaky, Bourbon barrels strong. Pours clear golden with a one finger white head that falls fairly quick. Taste is lightly sweet and a little sour (6/10 on a sour scale); very dry. Boozy. Interesting, but not what I look for in a sour. Second thoughts: this really mellows out after it warms up. The harshness dials down significantly and it becomes quite wine-like, making me up my initial scores.
