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.

ReggieDunlap (3049) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a deep reddish brown with a medium tan head...solid lacing. Aroma is oaky and funky/earthy with some malty dark fruit notes and just a hint of tartness. Flavor is much more sour...malty dark fruits and a touch of malt vinegar mingle with oak and funk in a very sour and acidic brew. Mouthfeel is light and airy with a dry and very tart finish that lingers to oak and dark fruit.

Pours with virtually no head. Aroma is red wine with some sour notes. Taste is sour with a little oak as well. Pretty smooth beer with low carbonation.

375ml bottle shared by jsprime. A great take on a Classic Flanders red. Complex and malty with the right amount of acid. The wood is well integrated. Very good beer.

Bottle from Mr. B’s on my trip to Denver. Brew No. 3 of my night of BA Sours for the last day of my 20’s. Pours dark brown with barely any light showing through and an of white head that fizzes off rather quickly. Aroma has the requisite oak and sour vinegar, dark fruits, and some brown sugar notes on this one. Flavor is lightly sour with some candi sugar sweetness, vinegar, acidity, dark fruits, some black cherry. Dry tart finish, medium body, with medium low carbonation. This is nice, but takes a back seat to the Rufus Corvus and Red Poppy I had just before it.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pours brown with a red tint and small off-white head. The aroma has dark cherries, lots of woody oak, red wine notes, raspberries, mild tartness and lots of complexity. It has a medium bright body with a low amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with vinegar acidity, sour dark berries, minor oak, citric acidity and crispness. The finish has some bugginess and is very sharp and citric. Very nice.

On tap at The Source. Pours a cloudy burgandy with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is oak, fruit, and wood. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart fruit, strong oak, light malt, nice winous flavor. Very nice.

RABinCO (1206) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draft pour. Dark, cloudy amber, slight cream head. aroma is very faint. Hints of wood and dark fruit. Taste is huge. Perfect blend of wood, wine notes, sour grape, cherries, slight bit of citrus. Coats the tongue and slowly fades, first the tartness, then the fruit, then the wood. Fairly easy drinking.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy ruddy brown with a light tan head. Aroma is sour and ruddily grapey. Med body, possibly better. Flavor is red grape, sour, astringent oak. That is so inadequate, but the best I can describe. This doesn’t seem brett, more like lambicus. But whatever, it is marvelously tasty. Get it if you can. Further note: After an hour or two this seems to be very sourly cherry. Getting better all the time.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 14, 2014
On tap at Crooked Stave. Pours dark brown with a modest beige head and a treacle and red wine aroma. There is a delicious sour brown flavor that flows smoothly to the oak finish.

On tap at brewery, poured a ruby brown hue w/ big fizzy head diminishing to a ring w broken lacing. Mod to bold wine aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold sour finish. Taste is a deep and complex Burgandy and oak supported by the yeast. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
