Sampled at Noogfest High 5. The aroma was cloudy dark copper with a near pink colored head. Nose of funk and wood. There was also some raw plant matter, like a pile laying in a greenhouse. The taste was fairly tart with some hay. A sweet finish.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2011 Re-rate from a tasting at Suttree’s. I liked it much better this time. Deep red with pinkish quick head. The aroma is fruity sourness with plenty of funk and some berry. The flavor is deep lactic sourness with a submerged musty note and some light fruitiness. Some dank cellar notes and a nice dry finish. [first rating: 6/3/7/3/14] Sampled at Noogfest High 5. Pours cloudy orange with light peach colored head. The aroma is sweet peach, honey, a touch of butterscotch. The flavor is sweet with a bit of a buttery deal that turns me off a bit. There’s a mild sourness throughout. The berries are in there, but not all that well-pronounced. Decent, but not all that great.

Thanks to fishingnet for bringing this outstanding beer to the BA Bolita release. Pours a burnt cloudy copper with bits of fruit seed floating about. Deep raspberry/blackberry aroma. Light acidic notes on the nose. Strong malt backbone with some toffee notes in the beginning before the fruit and sourness comes in. The middle of the beer has a very velvety smooth berry flavor and some slight vinegary sour notes top it off. Fantastic!

22oz bottle served in the new style Boulevard Chalice. Poured a pretty reddish orange with a quickly dissipating head. A little Brett in the aroma also some berries. Decent amount of sourness. A little sweetness. Light bodied. Some berry flavor. Nice sour pucker in the finish. Also subtle wood in the finish. Very easy drinking. I wish I had another bottle to age. I’d like to see where this one goes.

[Bottle] shared by tytoanderso. Pours a cloudy peach color with a small, effervescent white head. Aroma has lots of yogurt-like lactic tartness with a dry oakiness, but really no berry notes. Flavor is nice and full and rich, lots of cab character and berries, and a nice, moderate level of tartness and acidity with a creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle shared by Hophead22 from pantanap.. Pours a glowing orange with a white lacing head..Aroma is sweet fruits and sourness.. Taste was drier than the aroma would lead you to believe. Had a nice sour tartness to it. Tasty.

22oz bottle. Bottled January 09. Musty aroma. A slight bit of wet wood. Lactic and acetic acids. Tannic fruit pits. Yogurt-y. A slight spiciness... cinnamon maybe? Pleasant, but not a whole lot aroma-wise. Pours a cloudy peachy/orange/pink with a thin ring of white. Flavor exhibits a lot more character than the aroma. Lots of acetic and lacto. Barrel and fruit tannin as well. Quite dry on the tongue. Lively carbonation. Lots of lacto on the sides of the tongue with a very pleasant acidic finish. Not overly complex, but everything works very well for this one. Highly drinkable sour for sure. Thanks Kan!

Bottle courtesy of fishingnet. Pours a hazy orange-pink color with thin white head. Aroma is slightly sour with notes of fresh berries, light brett, hints of ripe cherries, some light funk and hints of caramel and honey. Flavor is slightly sour with notes of vinegar, cherries, ripe fresh fruit, hints of sweetness. Generally medium body with a sour finish. Nice ale.

I do not like sours, but this beer rocked. Thanks to fishingnet for opening this one. Pours a nice pink-berry color with a white head. Nose is sour- vinegar, sweet berry, grapefruit juice, and chardonnay qualities. Flavor is awesome: vinegar, cherry, berry, tart, some brett, and spice. Lovely sour, just like her name implies. Are they going to make a stout named Romeo? Maybe just another sour? Then they could blend the 2? Hmmmm.

Bottle thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum!
Fiery pink-red color, small white head. Sour berry nose, brett in some grapefruit, light lactic quality, grainy and woody. Tart, fruity flavor, lots of grapefruit with a berry aftertaste and some slight must/hay. The light body matches the flavor, though it is still rather watery. No big mistakes, but it is rather bland and unimaginative.
