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.

Wow, aroma gets a 10. Smells like dark roasted fruit, wood cask, and raspberries. Coolor is light, ruby red. Think "raspberry" color. Tastes wheat, belgian, not very sweet and a little too tart for my tastes. It was a very extraordinary drink in its own class. Served in goblet glass as we ordered a 650ml bottle after dinner. Reminds me more of a cabernet wine with the raspberry, wood, and dark semi tart taste notes. personal note* My friend Dave ordered this as we were ordering dinner and the waitress thought he was going to Joliet after dinner. Good times at Goose Island brewery..

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. 2012 vintage. Pours an amber color with a fizzy, soda like head thay dissolves almost immediately. The aroma is all sour. Not much else going one. The taste is very sour through its entirety, but also has some vanilla and winy notes coming through on the backend. Kind of a let down. Definitely not worth the pricetag.

auerbrau (3147) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 9, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 750mL Unlabeled Bottle. Big nose of spice and fruit. Funky german bread and fruit. Savory. Pours a clouded red-tinted amber, with a rim of soapy white. Flavor is funky as well. A crisp yeast production, with light sour fruit in it. A bit of bready spice. Tangy and sharp. Light alcohol. As a loaf of weird spice conflicting with blackberry jam. The rye spice is weird with the fruit. Itís prominent, but fights the fruit a little. However, with a little imagination this is an interesting rendition of rye toast with a smearing of dark fruit jam. Carbonation isnít bad. Rye is rather prominent. Alcohols marry the flavors a little. Interesting. I canít tell if there are some yeast phenols or a if its run of rye. Confused. Tangy, but I donít know where thatís coming from, probably the blackberries.

Murky amber. No head. Sour Fruit nose. One note sour and oak. I guess that is two notes. Medium body. High carbonation. Abrasive dry finish.

Tried at DLD courteous of a random beer fan. Poured light red-brown with a nice white head. Had a fruity aroma. The sour taste was pleasant, gave the beer a real good finish.

Thanks to fishingnet for this one! Light, tart and fruity. Nose is slightly funky and lactic berries. Flavor is subdued and slightly watery. It is a good flavor, I just wish there were more of it. Sour berries, mostly.

22oz 2009 bottle (bottled Jan 09) from NobleSquirrel. Pours a very clear bright orangish ruby golden with thin white head that reminds me of Alka Seltzer, but disappears much quicker. Nose is a winey, fruity, light acetic mix with some woody tones laying under it all. Lightly tanic and you can definitely pick up the blackberries and some apple, especially as it come fully up to room temp. It also looses some of the tartness on the nose as it warms as well. Light vinegar and thin fruitiness, with some dry peppery wood bitterness on the end. Really kind of watery, lacks depth and doesnít live up to the promise that the nose offers.

Sampled at Paulís tasting. Pours reddish pink and bubbly. Arouma is grapefruit. Taste is tart and acetic. Sweet fruits like fruit punch with extra acids added. A bit woody. Not bad.
