Bottle sharred by Ferris at RBAG 2013, thanks buddy. 2012 vintage Cloudy red brown pour, smell is oak and cherry (sourness). The taste is well rounded and not overly accidic, there is some cherry sourness but also nice bits of oak and a slight malty/boozy finish. Throughly enjoyed.

Bottle - Vintage 2012 -Toffee, brown sugar, plums and alcohol. Clear amber with a thin head. Incredibly smooth for a sour is the first thing you notice. So well balanced with dark fruits, brown sugar and some alcohol heat but appropriate and not out of place. I can’t wait to put some age on these and see what happens.

2010. Reminds me of a Cascade: high malty, tons of soured grain. Spirit barrels, acidic yeast, sour green apples on the palate. Better than I remembered; age did this well.

Som en komplex rodenbach. Balsamvinägertoner i massor. Helt underbar. Synd att den inte växer på träd

Best after 8/20/13 S: Cherries. plums, oak, molasses, more cherries and some rotten wood. P: A dark ruby red with a fuzzy head that fades quck into just a thin lacin. T: Lots of cherries, oak, alcohol, (this is a big ass beer) . M: You get sourness upfront but it fades quickly, then its just boozy. Pretty light and medium to high carbonation and ends warm. O: A boozy sour, wasnt much of a fan, but still didnt have a problem finishing the bomber myself.
