sample at EBF, heavy tart and sour beer, thick and odd, vinegary finish, also very thin. Weird beer but ok.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2013
transparent chestnut, wisps on the glass. Nose is 2 day old puke, no joke. Maybe you could call it wood and all spice with a peppery, meaty whack. Flavor is lightly meaty, woody, odd lactic softness through finish, faint puke. Thin and sticky with lightest of chest burns. No thanks.

radagast83 (7069) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Sampled at Meridian Pint. Poured a slightly hazy, brown color with a small white head. Aroma was sugary vinegar notes, some dried fruit notes. Flavor was sweet, but not sickly sweet, it was also sour without being too puckeringly sour.

lamas (1546) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Draft on 06/08/13. Showed up at the table a murky iced tea brown with a small beige head. The sour aroma featured plenty of lemons, crabapples, green grapes, and cherries. Went down medium-bodied, sticky, and a tad syrupy here and there. The taste started with a moderate sweetness comprised of caramel, apple juice, and ripe cherries. Tart and tangy flavors quickly followed with loads of lemons, sour apples, and some vinous notes. The acidic finish lingered a bit. Quite tasty!

Travlr (20866) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at the source. Muddy brown color, bright white edge head. Aroma of raisins, dates. Taste is feet, cherries, sour plums. Oily mouthfeel. I think this is a Flanders red. Interesting and unique.
