Shared a bottle of this with the old man. Pink grapefruit colored pour with a big, foamy head. Yeasty and funky aroma. Sour, yeasty flavor, with some bread and a little oak. Tart and earthy, but not overwhelming. Good brew.

22oz bottle 5/13/10 (Batch 1 Jan/09) 50į in snifter-Pours a hazy dark amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of yeast, wild, and sourness. Taste of sourness, funk, wine, fruit, and oak. This medium bodied brew is pretty well balanced and darn good tasting. I am not a big fan of sours but this one hits the spot. Nice job. Not a gusher.

Just cracked this open and wow. This is one of the most unique beers Iíve ever had. Poured into my Duvel tulip and was instantly blown away by the pink color of the beer and the enormous amount of amazingly fluffy bubbly head. The aroma has a strong wine odor to it and the flavor is like a nice light but bubbly wine. Very different and very tasty - definitely something I would drink again.

2009 (batch 2) 22 oz bottle from beernbourbon. Heard that some of these were exploding so I thought I better not take any chances. Pours reddish brown with a huge pinkish fizzy head and a fair amount of sediment. Aroma of tart funky brett, berries, oak and very light vinegar. Flavor is very sour, brett and lactic acid, some oak and very light berry flavor as well. Light body with very active carbonation and a frothy almost champagne mouth feel. This is good, wish the blackberries came though a bit more. I have a feeling this thing was on itís way to explode, it is super carbonated. Thanks to the forums for getting the word out. And thanks for the beer Vince.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2011 (22oz bottle 2009 vintage bottled 8-14 thanks to mar) cloudy ruby red grapefruit juice colored pour, great head that lasts a long while and excellent lacing. Nose of cherry, funky yeast. Taste of mildly tart cherries, red raspberries, strawberry, celery and spicy yeast. Very dry finish, lots of spices left on the palate.

(22oz bottle 2010 vintage bottled 12-10)deep bright red pour, extremely tart and funky nose, blackberry, red wine barrel, wet wood, just a tiny bit of wood char, and currants. Taste of sour tart blackberries, mild acidity in just the right amount. Body has a perfect tart linger, slightly oily and dry and an awesome tart fruit and wood barrel linger. Itís absolutely incredible. 8-4-9-5-17 (original rating 8-4-8-4-15)

UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 Courtesy of pantanap via trade

Bottle: The aroma consists of raspberry, mustiness, light lemon sourness, and mild funkiness. It pours a cloudy reddish-orange with a large pink tinged head with good retention. The flavor starts with light raspberry. The finish has mild hints of lemon and faint mustiness. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Light and refreshing but a little lacking for my sour preferences.

Bottle that I opened after seeing warnings about exploding bottles from both batches 1 and 2. The warnings were right, considering how this thing shot up like a fountain for a second after opening. Open this one in the sink!

Pours a nice cloudy magenta with pink highlights. The aroma is mildly acidic and slightly malty, with a touch of cherry. Mild vinegar acidity in the flavor with a touch of paint, along with some carbonic acid. Muddy yeast bringing up the rear. Spritzy and bright yet completely dead feeling. This is a pretty lackluster sour. If people are wanting to drink this, I donít understand why they donít just drink wine. This carries all the same flavor characteristics but pales in comparison to 90% of wines out there.
