popery (1433) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a deep burgundy-brown color. Looks pretty clear. Smallish light beige head, fairly fizzy. The bubbles die away to not much after a minute or two. Aroma is sour and wood with a touch of funk. I was expecting a more acidic beer, and while it does trend that way a tad, this beer has a pretty nice balance of sour, wild flavors. There’s a lot of sour fruit knocking around. Grapes, blackberries, peaches, cranberries, raspberries, apricots. While the funk is relatively mild, it does contribute and give the beer some depth. Best of all, there’s none of that bile note that plagues so many American sours (at least for me). Solid woodiness and bretty funk. The taste has a pretty good acid bite running throughout. There’s some soured maltiness, giving the beer a bit of body. Fairly vinous. A bit harsher than the aroma but it still doesn’t go overboard. Quite dry. Light body. Very good beer.

The wood is a highlight in the aroma along with sour fruit. Very wine like. The flavor is quite sour with the fruit. The wood comes through too. Dry and refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emacgee (4052) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a deep and murky mahogany brown with two fingers of tight sandy tan head. nose shows black cherry pits and oak wood with a touch of prune and dark fruit. Ligthly grainy/burnt toast notes show as well with fruity esters. Very tart flavor with a watery and thin mouthfeel. Flavor and pallet seem very disconnected. Random notes of grain and popcorn (not diaceytl).

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle, brought to me from the brewery by my brother-in-law. Beautiful deep mahogany with a tight off white head. Aroma is full of ascetic sourness, some underlying oak and vinous notes. Fully ascetic sour palate, light, not puckering, with lovely sour cherry and oak traits. Quenching, smooth, so drinkable. These guys may be my new favourite brewery-- certainly the brewery I’m most excited about this past 2013 year.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle - Pours rosy amber with a bubbly light tan head. Nose is light vinegar with a deep fruity malt and cherries. Taste is sour and malty with some balsamic vinegar and a tart and puckering finish. Soft and lightly fluffy. This was good, but a little meh and one-dimensional.

375 ml bottle shared at Dave’s get-together. Pours a deep amber brown with a very thin beige head. Very pleasant aroma is of oak, red wine, cherry and red wine vinegar. The flavor is very similar to the aroma with the same oak, red wine, cherry and red wine vinegar. Very enjoyable.

375 ml form Brouwerij Lane. Probably a few dollars more than elsewhere. But a nice cherry/brown sour with minimal carbonation that fades. Wine notes throughout. Nice.
