Kinda cool that i am the third rater - thanks Felipe! Pours hazy purple red, burgundyesque with a tiny off white head that neither sticks around nor laces well. Aroma is bretty, funk, barnyard. Fruity but not specifically blackberry, oak. Flavor is light plus tart, some initial sweetness with a dry finish. Light bodied. Interesting.

Purple pour with an off white head. Flavors of dusty yeast, berries, lemon peel, lacoto. Some yogurt flavors too. I think this one will do well with some age.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pour is dark pink with a bit of a haze to it and a light pink head. Nose has a lambic note to it, a bit of barnyard funk, slight metallic twang, strong raspberry fruit behind. Taste isn稚 quite as barnyard or as bright. Strong brett presence that gets a little muddled and brett is strong. Still a hint of barnyard, some dusty brett with a moderate amount of blackberry. Lighter body, fairly sour with a slightly puckering finish.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to Woodchopper on BA! Light purple pour, light blackberry nose with an average amount of carbonation. Flavor was pleasantly tart wood, hints of citrus and some barely noticeable blackberry. Decent beer.

wedgie9 (2612) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 10/27/13 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours blood orange with no real head, but some thin, bubbly lace. The nose is strong, nutty brett funk with tart, fruity blackberry. The flavor is the same, really more focused on the brett with tart, sour blackberry, and a touch of lemon acidity. The body is medium, nice tannic structure, with very light carbonation and a long funky and sour blackberry finish.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle shared in London to honour JackL痴 departure. Thanks to Paul for this sour sauce. Pours hazy pink-purple with a fluffy white head. Funky berry aroma, with some lemony undertones. Light sweet flavor with strong berry tartness, lemon, some bitter berry skins, soft funk. Light in body with average carbonation. Clean and dry on the finish, with more berry skins, mellow mustiness, slight acidic bite. Very nice beer.

Fruity, mildly estery. Flavors are dry, lightly immature brett character (cheerios). Jammy, light wine barrel. Lively carbonation, medium bodied.
