Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a clear golden copper with thin white head. Aroma of dark fruit and sweet cherry over lactic sourness. Taste follows with a hint of vanilla and acetic tartness overlying, wow sour. I really liked this.

22 oz. bottle shared in 2012 with Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a hazy deep reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour cherry, some orange citrus, acetic acid, honey, caramel, some funk, interesting, but not quite a standout for me.

Deep, brilliant reddish brown colored pour. Small off-white head. Little splotches hang out after it falls. Aroma is a nice mix of sour and malt. Taste is the same with a bit of sweetness to balance out the sour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - pours a strawberry prune juice brown with a tiny ring of white head. S - smells like a sour brown. And... Some strawberry notes, cheap pink wine, brown sugar, art red berries and cherries, leather and tobacco. Light lemon juice. M - sharp bitter tartness up front, flat sweet middle and a dry end. T - interesting combo of grassy bitterness and sharp sour brown. This tastes a bit like a seedy bran muffin. But with Acetic right up front and lemon juice. The palate rolls to the tobacco, canned cherries and underripe berries with brown sugar to a malty almost robotussin palate. End it bitter grasses, astringent and mineral water. O - good but a bit astringent/cough syrupy/bitter. 3.2
