BBB63 (6013) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2010
FoBAB 2010: Coppery hue with minimal head or lace. The aroma has notes of pure acetone and white vinegar with lots of horsey funk and slight pepper along with moderate raspberry and red grapes. The taste is sour fruit, sour vinegar, and cheesy brettanomyces for the most part. There is a light and faint flowery, grainy, and oak. Some medicinal characteristics show up on the palate as well but not nearly as strong as the nose. The mouth feel is super tart and puckery, sharp edges and still found to be a bit watery and uninspired. While there is some promise, this beer is need of some depth, far too one-dimensional.

Draft at FoBAB 8. This is my least favorite of the Dekkeras that I’ve had. Pours a purpley brown with fizzy head. Nose is acetic, too much so. The raspberry seems candied as well. This is a bit one dimension on the nose, leading quite towards vinegar. On taste, similar. Slight acetone note as well. Some nice Lacto is in there, but I think it may have been in the barrel too long with too much O2 exposure. Could be good...

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Sampled at FoBAB 2010 (Chicago, IL). Pours a glowing orange amber, fiery, decent haze, small whitish head dies to near non-existant head. Aromas are a decent dose of vinegar, wet oak, and brett. Some sour raspberry, bready malts, leather and funk. Initial is high vinegar funk, acidic and balsamic, some raspberry tannins peek through, touches of pulp. Lighter bodied with a deeper acidic finish, tart and lactic aceto. A lot of vinegar, peeks of raspberry, funky barnyard and leather are there but ridden off by high acidity. Decent balsamic dressing appeal. Tasty, a bit big for it’s britches and a beer that would scare "greener" sour fans away

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured a hazy deep red with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a nice strong sour raspberry note with a slight sweet raspberry note and a hint of dry wine. Flavor started with slightly sweet raspberry with a strong growing sour note and just a bit dry in the finish.
