CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
2012 bottle as part of the three sisters tasting. Close second to Lolita. Fruit is not quite as dominant here, with the sourness and oaky character taking more of a dominant role compared to Lolita. Fairly vinous, long dry finish. I would love to have these ones again in the future!

"An aggressively sour ale. Light in body, prickly. Berries, vinegar and oak are the main players in both aroma and flavor. Some lemony funk in the flavor as well. Really nice brew."

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2014
On tap at Brouwer’s for Migration Week. Pinky orange. Tart nose, wet flavor. Not really getting blueberries here, but it’s nice and dusty, with white wine and a decent pucker. Not bad at all.

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 23, 2014
2013 bottling. Clear copper kettle color with fleeting ivory head. Barnyard, citrusy lemon, tart berry fruit aromas with dry wood, spicy wine. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Mildly to medium tart berry fruit, spicy red wine flavors with lemon, mild aspirin, sharp caramel, dry wood, dust____very tasty.

OmegaX (1255) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle at home with the wife. Nose is big wine barrel notes, red fruits, blackberries, wood, vanilla, funk. Pour is nice - a hazy reddish purple color. Flavor is lightly spicy with notes of grapes and blackberries. Not overly tart but definitely has a kick to it. Decent.

pdx77 (1373) - Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2014
On draught at Belmont Station. Reddish golden color. Aroma is cherry, berry, tart funky yeast, light vinegar, white wine, and oak. Taste is sweet and sour cherries and blackberries, pungently tart yeast, white wine, and wood. Gary tickle in the mouthfeel, really balanced sour fruit and yeast finish.

JBPortland (779) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 7, 2014
22oz bottle (2010 vintage) pours clear dark violet red with small fading fizzy head. Nose is musty tart acidic blackberry and funky barn oak, a touch acetic. Taste is tart semi sweet juicy blackberry, grape juice, touch of syrup, wood, subtle wine. Finish is semi sweet tart fruity blackberry and mixed berry juice, paired with dry old wood, and they play nicely off each other. Holding up very well for a bottle this old!

Nolabrewer (5) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 26, 2014 does not count
Pours a deep copper with no head. Not much aroma. Initial tartness is balanced by the sweetness of blackberries. Finishes with a dry bite that is neither unpleasant nor overpowering. I’m not a big sour fan, but this beer is outstanding.
