vintage 2012. pours a copper with hints of plum, light fizzy white creamy head. light retention. soft berries on the nose, subtle lemon and tartness. nice sourness through out. soft blackberry and dark berry flavor. some light lemon and dry oak. very moderate carbonation, great tingle which helps bring out the berry flavor. overall, very delicious. never boring. 8% makes it a bit slower of a sipper but really easy to drink away on. great flavor, cannot see it improving.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Date: June 8, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Trade with fullobs Description: Semi-opaque orangish brown with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was sour funk, red wine, bready, berries, wood and spice. Taste was consistent with aroma, the wood really came out in the finish. Thin to medium palate and a little bit of carbonation.

Bottle. Pours light amber/dark pink with a small white head which quickly fades. No retention/lace. Aroma of blackberries, tannins, oak, funk, barnyard, lemon. Taste is quite sour; lemon, funk, oak, blackberry. Palate is slick, average carbonation, intense sour finish. Good.

Post Borefts I Invasion of Fonefan and Charlottes room tasting! Cloudy amber beer. Crisp dry palate. Sour and fruity and a little sharp. Finsihes very dry and with some minerals. Decent sour, a bit dry but not too puckery!

Delicious, sour grape/apple aroma. Bright, clear amber colored pour with very little head. Flavors of tart green apple, raspberry, and grape tannin. Very light palate with a medium tart/tannic finish. Very nice!

Very lucky to have snagged a bottle of this. It seems like itís even more evasive than Lolita in the Twin Cities area. Bottled 1/26/12 - bottle # 1247. Poured from 22oz bottle to snifter:
Pours a glowing, beautiful pinkish golden pear. A short-lived, fizzy off white cap fades off to a thin dollop of a head. Slow, pinpoint beading. What a nice looking beer.
The nose is just as bright - sour berries, aggressive tart character, yeast, a bit of rhubarb, white grapes, a touch of booze far and away.
Exceedingly complex on the tongue. Tart, drying fruits... some bright grape notes, faded hop character, a touch of sour peaks before a very dry finish.
I think I prefer this one to the Lolita. A bit more balance and drinkability. Really a delicious beer I think.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark tan/reddish pour a little carbonation and a very sour aroma of fruity blackberries and wine. Flavor is also very tart berries, woody with a dry sour finish. Definitely good, but not $20/bottle good.

What a fantastic beer. I love the full flavor from the blackberry. This is such an easy beer to drink and I find myself fighting not to take this bomber down so fast.

2012 Bottle pours dark golden/amber with a small white head that does not stay long. Aromas are sour, lactic, funky and fruity. Tastes are woody, vinous, tart, funky, fruity notes. Lots going on, and all of it is delicious. Wish this was not so limited, as it is an amazing sour beer.
