Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a rusty brown with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is tobacco, leather, a little diaper funk and deep cherry vinous notes. The palate opens beautifully with great vinous fruit and balanced acidity. Great mouthfeel with a smooth dry finish.

375 ml bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart fruit, wood, red grapes, tannins, some acidity, mild caramel sweetness with some lactic sourness as well. Lighter body, but a solid drinker.

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to the Dood! Pours a hazy deep amber with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of oak and dry red wine with a nice backing sour berry note that has a touch of acid. Flavor is similar with rich sour berries that are backed by a light oak note and just a touch of dryness.

A- opaque amber brown pour with a quickly dissipating 1/2 finger of light tan head. S- brown sugar, faint molasses, sour bing cherries, some funk, sulfur, light leather, damp oak, musty white grapes, lemon juice. M- quick, medium acidic palate with a mild to medium body with good carbonation. T- tart cherries and lemons to start but it dies off quickly. Brown sugar supports. Vinegar in the middle that lasts through a quick ending. Some unripe green grapes and mineral water in the middle as well. Ending is grape tannins, lemon and vinegar. Simple taste, but not to a fault. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375 ml bottle from my 2013 Membership. Thanks for the assist, Aaron. Pours a nice brownish copper pour, darker reddish glow, well hazed body with some glowing ruby copper edges and bottom. A frothy tannish head dies to a decent filmy layer, sticks around as a loose film, laces ok. Aromas show tart cherries, balsamic, and a bit of biscuit. Firm oak presence, red wine, a bit of acidity. Good bigger oak, gentle brett grows, a bit funky, some of that toasty biscuity malt base shows a bit. Initial is firm lactic sourness, nothing offensive, nothing acedic. A bit dry lactic sourness shows cherry, red wine, yogurt. Sour and smaller body up front and as we move on. Really kinda nice. Not potent and acedic, but nicely sour, still showing some decent base quality. Middle is a bit dry and tannic, moving on into firm oak, a touch of vanilla, earth, gentle red wine feels. Red grapes come on stronger here and moving forward. Backend shows a bit of spiciness, gentle red wine, and vanilla. Really, oak and lactic elements are firm, more red grape are a touch juicy, tart, and tannic. A smaller body makes this a touch thin overall. But really, quite drinkable. A touch of fuzziness on the palate, big lactic element shows a touch of raspberry, pulpy berry in there somewhere. Really quite clean, cherry fruit, big oak, a bit winey,n with a big lactic presence without being acedic or offensive, no Balsamic or vinergarette feel in the slightest. It’s not all that complex, but it is quite tasty. Nose could use a touch more. But this is really a nice quite crushable sour.

375ml bottle... Pours a reddish brown consistency with a thin soapy light beige head... Aroma of soured seedy berry, softer cherry, earthy pits. Light basement quality. Bretty dust and grapes? Perhaps... Flavors are more oud bruin focused, somewhat intensely sour. Medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation.
