lefossoyeur (498) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Pour slightly cloudy golden orange, no head. Herbal aromas with fennel dominating the mix. Lightly sour, very low carbonation, anise and fennel flavours, very thin palate, refreshing. Simple straightforward sour ale.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a little red hues, off- white head. Aroma of dark fruits, wild yeast, nutty, vanilla, wood. Taste is smooth, light sour, nice wood flavor, medium-boded, crisp. Overall, very good.

Salmoniform (1227) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Reddish brown hue with fizzy tan head. Aroma is lactic, plum, cherry, oak. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tartness throughout. Overall this is a great brew.

Hazy brown with a cream head. Nose is sour, tart, acidic, wood and funky. Great palate, tart, wood, dried fruits, delicious.

Doofgoblin (429) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Excellent! An oak vinegar aroma is inviting. The taste is sour cherry with hints of Apple and rich sweet vinegar. The finish is a lasting sour with just a hint of bitterness. With low carbonation, this beer has a thin but deep sour fruit flavor that is really good. Overall, this is just an excellent showing.

GothGargoyle (1689) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Cloudy reddish brown with a pale head. Aroma is ripe strawberries, dates, sour cherries, plums, red currants, hint of oak. Medium-light bodied, slightly vinous on the palate with a lightly tart fruity finish. Taste is light red wine, tart plum, red currants, light oak. Love how much of the burgundy has cone through, this is like a beer and wine hybrid with the best of both worlds.

drowland (6831) - Georgia, USA - SEP 24, 2014
9/13/14. Shared at the Aardwolf anniversary party by rdixon77. Red pour with a nice small khaki head. The first whiff tells you this puppy is sour... acidic, tart, fruity, just a hint of vinegar, some oak wafting up. Nice flavor, very sour, acidic, lightly fruity, oak melding well with some vanilla and wood, that sort of smarties American sour aspect going on, quite sour. Yum.

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14
This is an amber colored beer. The nose and flavor are tart, funky, and fruity. The wine is noticeable. This is a nice beer.

rdixon77 (1581) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Nice sour. Dark red, almost no head at all. Complex aroma of wood, fruit, vinegar. Oak, dark fruit, and wine notes dominates the taste. Crisp finish. Good stuff.

valpoaj (663) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Deep red pour with no head to speak of. Nose is sour, vinegar, hint of wood - inviting stuff. Flavor is quite good - very good rendition of a flanders red with a nice melding of the wood. Palate was drying and kept you coming back for more. I thought this beer was quite good and would love another go with this...top notch stuff!
