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.

Superdecent all the way, but seems bit boring. Lovely fruitiness, dark fruits, grapes, plums, cherries, raisins, berries, oak, leather (?), light caramel. Bit overpowering sourness. Lovely drink, but I would prefere others from same genre

Deep clear, dark red-mahogany, no head. Smells of tart cherries, vanilla, molasses. Some funky basement aromas. Quite tart, sour. Some sweetness, not a ton. Long finish, medium body, some oiliness, quite acidic. Really nice.

Bottled. Pours amber with a small beige head. Aroma of yeast, barnyard, wood and red grapes. Slightly sweet flavor that end up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily textbure and flat to soft carbonation. A very nice Sour indeed.

(375ml bottle) clear deep reddish brown with fine edge bubbles. Nose of yogurt, tart berry, wood barrel, lacto. Taste is even better than the nose, tart yogurt, medium tart cherry, Lacto, mild barrel character that’s well integrated, really easy to drink sour beer. Love the palate finish.

Mep3222 (692) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Very nice dark fruit, oaky aroma. Dark cherry. Taste is dark cherry, oak and get a burgundy finish. Really nice and complex. Almost a slight watery palate for how complex and strong the flavors are. Sour is maybe 6 of 10. Mostly lactic sour but has a bit of barnyard funk as well. Very complex and nice sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sour red...aroma if metal and copper..not good..but flavor of sour malt tartness bring thus beer to excellence. May be I should have let it sit. Malty sourness in flavor was a perfect balance. Breads yeasty and wet paper was great.
