Draft into snifter at KnB Wine Cellars in San Diego, Calif., on July 28, 2012. Two fingers of head when I got it. Honey caramel auburn color. White/tan head/lacing with great retention all around (sides and top). Smelled dirty rotten fruit, plum, peach, apple, purple grape, cherry, pear. Tasted Sweet Tarts, Smarties, Sour Gummi Worms, tart, sweet. Nothing like the nose. Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long sweet candy finish. Consistent and long lasting. Finally got to try this beer and it didnít disappoint. Smooth, tasted great and sweet.

Batch 092414. So good! The wine shines though in an amazing way! The sourness is slightly more pronounced than consecration in my opinion. Still subtle though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GlasgowTAD (279) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a clear amber colour with a slight foamy red-brown head which recedes to a lacing. Aroma is cherries, raspberry and brett. Taste is red berries, tart redcurrants, red grapes which lead to a long red wine finish.

Deep orange-brown pour, small off-white head. Great tart aroma of cherries, barnyard, brett and earth. Flavor is fantastic, earthy, vinous, tart, with notes of wine and peach. Effervescent. Tart start, bubbly fresh middle, vinous finish. Fantastic.

fraternie (877) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Shows sour, wild yeast aromas, with a broad palate of orange rind and lemon peel citrus above super yeasty undertones, finishing with blasts of barnyard funk, sour cherry, and distinct loamy flavors. Shows style and persistence for sure.

Cheery wine nose raspberry type of flavor tons of hay and funk. Not a fruit beer fan but love the fruit sours for sure. This one is best with nice carbonation and so so good basement wine cellar notes of oak and barnwood. Superb.

First let me start off by saying I donít really like sours. On tap at the brewery. Pours a honey color, small white sticky head. Sour but the pinot noir adds a nice element of dark fruits, and cherries. Flavor is very sweet and sour.

A massive thanks to Guy for sharing this huge want with me. It really does live up to the hype it has. Nose is complex and juicy but the taste is where it takes it up a notch. Unbelievably zesty and juicy with plenty of cherries and plum. Loads of red berry tartiness with an amazing acidity throughout. Complexity at itís highest with unfortunately huge drinkability. Goes down so easy. Amazing beer
