GABF’08. Aubrey’s wife was raving about this. Aroma is lots of barrel and sweet blackberry. Some oak butter in there and it mixes with the new American sourness light though. Taste is some sour berries and really not much past that, surprisingly. Not overwhelming in the flavor from all the disparate parts, I guess that can be considered an achievement.

[300th rating] aroma of light yeast funk and subdued but bright citrus. appearance is burnished orange, nearly the color of, well...oak. flavor is ultra tart. blackberries are definately not out in the open, which i appreciate: they served to fuel the yeast but were certainly consumed as no horrible ’bad lambic’ sweetness remains. flavor is just plain sour and even a bit peppery. the only other flavor element that comes to mind is of a vinous quality, marked by the super dry finish. so dry in fact that is burns the throat for just a moment then passes and leaves cleanly.

Bottle at PPRBSG09. Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma of sour notes, yogurt, and sweet tart candies. Flavor is initially acidic with some yogurty and funky notes in the finish. The palate was a bit on the acidic side. Tasty but I wasn’t super impressed. 8/4/7/3/14 (3.6/5)

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.

dark gold with moderate white head. mild sourness and fruity/floral nose. moderate to low carbonation for the style. very little initial bitterness before some floral hops and fruity esters come into play, some brett-tartness, but nothing overwhelming at all. if told of the blackberries i can discern some presence, but overwise I would just consider it part of the hops flavor. not sour enough and not enough depth to the flavor. somewhat disappointing

October ‘09 O-Town Throwdown, courtesy of Solan. Pours amber, beige head. Aroma and flavor. plenty of good sourness, hints of fruits; on the cherry side adding a wine like palate from the Cabernet barrels adding a nice wood finish coupled with the fruit sour finish.

Thanks ucusty for sharing. Pours a murky deep pink with a one finger frothy dirty white head. The nose is lactic and fruity, some cherry skin tartness, wood, phenol. Flavor is tart, not a lot of character here, fruity, cherry skins. Palate is mildly tart.

Sample from black friday tasting. Gold body with white head. Aroma had a fermented aroma maybe little below other sours. Good sour and tart flavor. Thanks to Rusty i think.

Habanero (2756) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 65 cl Bottle. Pours hazy pale red/amber with a small, pinky off-white head. Nose of brett and sour berries. Dry flavor with caramel, black berries, brett and spice + wood notes, that ends up quite tart. Light to medium bodied, watery texture and soft CO2. Quite smooth for a sour ale.Nice for my taste.★★★★
