Very good. Very expensive. Drank with Westmeister upon arriving in SSI at around 11:30 p.m. Pours hazy with white head. Fruit, earth, and wine scent. Live in the mouth. Just too damn expensive. Go with Le Terroir for about half the price. Bottle - Greenís Beverages - Atlanta, GA

Really nice vinegar smell. A little bubble gum In the aroma too. Big tart and acidity right up front. Stays on the back of the mouth. A big berry flavor also. Leaves the big feeling on your teeth from the sour. I really liked this one.

Great Taste 2008. Another impressive fruit beer, and again one of the highlights of the festival. So much going on here, it was hard to separate the flavors of sour ale from the spice from the blackberry. The came off as somewhat of a combination of New Glarus Raspberry Tart and Founders Red Rye, which as you might imagine, was excellent. Notes of blackberry and currant mesh with sour cherry, honey, hay, and vanilla. The complexity makes this worth seeking out.

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.

Pours a hazy reddish/pink with little white head that dissapear quickly and no lacing. Aroma of small berries, oak, already smell acidic. Taste starts with small berries but then it gets very acitic. Oak is taking some place with some oak tannins. Low body and low carbonation. It has a good taste but the acetic takes too much place. Will take a glass if somebody offers me one but wont buy it.

Draught @ BTAH, ’07 vintage. Pours cloudy, dark strawberry red, with thin, fizzy head. Nose is fantastic - sharp, tart red fruit, berries, sweet notes blending with acidic sharp tartness and a barnyardy funk also. Really delicious. Flavor is funky up front, musty, barnyard, bit of wet leather, with a matching fruity tartness, sharp, more acidic - red berries coming through clearly. Wonderfully drinkable, funk lingers without being overwhelming. Mouthfeel is light with a vibrant, sharp carbonation up front.

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!

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 Pale/red wine nose. Light red hue. Low lacing. High carbonation. Tasted very nice, nice tartness, winey flavor with berry at the end. Very refined flavors. Nice and dry. A must try.
