arminjewell (6173) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy reddish brown pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of oak, smoke, lemon, hints of slight sweet honey, caramel, vinous notes as well in there, chemical notes as well. Taste is a mix of smoke, oak, earth, hints of ash, slight vanilla, grape, hints of lemon, lacto in there, finishing fairly sour, slightly tart, slight chemical note. Weird, totally flat.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ home via trade. Pours a dark reddish orange appearance that’s pretty clear with no head. Aroma has dark fruits, red grapes, a little bit of smoke, caramel, and spices. Very dull carbonation. Lightly tart. Some vinegar in the mouth. Dark grapes, plums, cinnamon, leathery, light chemical, and a bit of soy sauce. Not very good and even more so since the carbonation sucks.

Bottle. This is nice sour brew with lots of complex layers of flavor and a good smokey overtone.

soonerchamps (5) - Edmond, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 2, 2013 does not count
750ml bottle from a Blind BIF. Pours dark red/brown. Strong fruits, red wine, and oak on the nose. Very sour which I thoroughly enjoyed. This has been done better, but I still really appreciated it.

Jesterdeal (1856) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Aroma of cinnamon, allspice, slight band aid funk, and slight honey. Pours red and hazy with lacing. Taste is tart with cinnamon, cherry, cranberry, honey and floral. The spice is a little out of place but I like the honey.

Deep orange, hazy, big dissipating tan head. Aroma reminds me of northern brewer hops--rustic, woodsy, minty. Also some berries, earthy horse blanket. Flavor similar but with some prickly acidity. Finishes fairly tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
