Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Sweet vinous and oaky notes with a bit of cherry. Clear copper with a rich white head. Big front end sour notes, vinegar, barrel notes and little else as far as flavor. This has aged very well.

Nice wild. Sour plum and apricot. Mash malt. A little dose of bretta as well. A subtle note of tin. Finishes sour with fizzy carbonation. Pours reddish brown and without much head or lacing. Thanks to Liam.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Some cherry aroma. Cherry brown colour with a nice head and lots of lace. The sourness is secondary and adds up. Thanks Liam.

This was my favorite entry of all the things ever, "Bottle. Had this a number of times but it appears I failed to review. Adequately a great quaffable sour, in the more than best ways" ~ he who tells you you're the best beer reviewer in the fairy beard lands of Guilpudge
