Pours a hazy brown. Oak and fruity aroma with a hint of funk. Moderate sourness is rounded by some sweeter malt and raisin qualities. Light body with just a bit of carbonation. A great sour.

Creamy sour? Yes with barrel. Sour tang. Very strong tang. But nothing that is astonishing. At the brewery thin fading head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jflopsu (1186) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Pours a dark brown-amber with light tan head. A decent tart fruit and malt aroma. A powerful tasty fruit taste of raspberries, cherries, and other dark fruits with some dry yeast. A lingering tart and dry yeast aftertaste.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle, shared by myself, in the library... just now!
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a big head right off the bat that fades reasonably quickly into a small head with minimal lacing on the glass.

The aroma is really something, oaky with tart cherries and some nice earthy funkiness. Very low on acetic aroma with some plum and pear.

The flavor is really quite sour, I mean within the boundaries of acceptable sourness, but on the high end of that scale. Lots of tart cherry flavor, plenty of oakiness, and a huge lemony component with a hint of balsamic vinegar. Gracious the lemon flavor is happening here. It’s very dry and very low on bitterness.

good stuff, not something I’d like a whole lot of but very nice.

Damico (3140) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Pours dark unclear amber like Hennessy. Aroma brings darker malts combine with the sour yeast and some of the burgundy grape. Flavor brings tart plum like flavors and the burgundy barrel creeping in and taking over.

pressboxjoe (421) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle. Pours ruby red with fizzy white head dissipating to a persistent ring. Smell of brett, bread, cherry candy, red grapes, purple grapes, red wine. Sparkling carb. Taste of grape soda, lemon. Just right tartness. Great mouthfeel.

thepatrickman (784) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2016
I love all things funky and sour, and this didn’t disappoint. There are some cherry and tart apple flavors from the malt and the yeast, and it’s a little oily with a long finish and lively carbonation. However, the funk to sour ratio leans heavily towards the sour, and it hits you hard with some vinegary puckering. Solid sour -- just bring some Tums.

zacgillbanks (4395) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy dark brown in colour with a very thin white head. It has a sour red fruity and spicy, zesty tart fruit flavour followed by an oak, vanilla sour cherry finish. Good!

teorn88 (6197) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
37.5 bottle from The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey. It pours a clean ruby copper color with minimal beige head that disappears immediately. Aroma is tangy lactic zesty acidic with notes of lemon juice and tart red berries. Lightly vinous. Taste is also tart acidic with more lemon and vinous notes. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, tasty sour
