riversideAK (6153) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Lightly tart nose, mostly candi sugars, some whiskey notes, and soft Belgian Yeast. Pours dark brownish red, soft head that hangs out for a little while. Soft sour flavors are there throughout, probably lacto I think. Mostly brown sugars, candi sugars, whiskey barrel notes, and some spices. A hint of whiskey barrel sweetness in the finish.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Tap at the Blind Tiger during NYC Craft Beer Week. A touch of tart, mostly thin, butter aroma. Flavor starts sour but turns into pure, disgusting, undrinkable oil. Yuck!

Draft. Pours a dark amber body with an white head. Thin body, bretty dry and malty. A lighter fruit and lacto character with some fruity esters and a light woodiness.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep ruddy-amber pour. The nose has a touch of oaky woodiness and a kiss of light plumminess as well. A kiss of lightly rummy notes as well as quite a bit of fruit and light molasses. Flavour has a nice dried fruit component. Not really all that tart, but it is lovely. A kiss of cherry on the back. I like this.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger: Hazy brownish ruby with a tan film of head. Odd aroma- some buttery oak and tart fruity notes mesh with a touch of off solventy esters (acetone). Creamy body with a tannic flavor. Some buttery oak is apparent with toasted woody notes. Some off phenolics and esters make it a touch plasticy, though it isn’t overwhelming. A bit off, but drinkable.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2009
On tap at the Blind Tiger - NYC. Minimal aroma. Maybe a bit of red currant and some bourbon. Pours a reddish brown. Flavor is very dry and crisp. Some light sourness and then a parching Brett edge. Some dusty old hops. A nice barrel character, well melded into the beer. Foamy. Tropical fruits really bloom in the backend. Nicely done. A good merge of boozy barrels and classic sour ale.
