Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2010
On tap. Copper color with white head. Intense brett character with cherry flavor. Very tarte, acidic, and delicious. An excellent beer that is very unique and should be regarded as a top 100 beer.

WillRunForBeer (855) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle shared with Dave for his 1 year anniversary. Dated 062212. Pours deep amber with a scant beige head. Aroma is caramel, tart cherry, acetic. Taste starts with sour cherry, oak, a touch of caramel comes in and it gets amazingly soft through the center. Finish is oak, some red wine. Really nice.

On tap at RR. Pours a deep darkish red brown, beige off white head. Aroma is oak, tannin, red grape, Brett, light lacto, minerals, earth. Flavor is smooth earthy malt, oak, dark sour fruits, dry lacto sour finish. Killer, especially on tap

2011 version. On tap at brouwers big wood. Typical supplication. Great beer. Aged a few years so is a little more sweet. Sour has mellowed a bit.

Served into a Teku from 010714 bottle of Supplication. As of now, bottle has aged ~ten months. Aroma -- scents of inviting sour berries and wine barrels emanating from glass. Tough to pinpoint the cherries from the aromatic qualities; however, fruit esters are evident from aroma. Appearance -- opaque, almost translucent, light brown hue. Little if any sediment in bottom of Teku. Taste -- phenomenally balanced brew: the lacto and pedio coalesce marvelously w/ the pinot barrels. This brew has a dreamlike sour cherry tartness w/ crisp pinot barrel on the after-tone that leaves your mouth puckering and salivating for another sip. This brew is more sour than sweet, which I appreciate. The cherries in this batch are not as distinct or sweet as the Montmorency cherries--patented by New Glarus Brewing--but, still blend and taste brilliant, nonetheless. Fruit esters and brettanomyces masquerade ABV exceptionally well. Palate -- exploring all avenues of your palate, this sweet, sour, and crisp sour leaves your palate as satisfied as ever. I have been aging this for ten months now. Supplication is a vinous sour that matures exceptionally well over time. Although delicious fresh, the sourness improves and may intensify over time w/o compromising the integrity of the beer. When I get a fresh batch, I’ll reconfirm the aforementioned statement. I I am completely transfixed by the pure craftsmanship involved in the brewing of this batch.

DarkDust (2) - Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2014 does not count
This is one of the best overall beers I’ve ever tasted. Great balance between ingredients, and the sour is not overpowering, but is tart enough on the palate to be very refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Flaska från BottleRock LA. Bärnstensfärgad med lite vitt skum. Lätt syrlig doft. Smaken är torr och syrlig, kunde gärna haft mer sötma.

Sour aroma of grapes and lactic acid, amber colour not much of a head. Dry feel with a sour taste with hints of grapes and a sour finish.
