3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Deep orange almost red colour with a slowly forming thin white head. Small bubbles cling to the sode of the glass as they rise. Sour vinegary aroma that is not off putting in any way, but warns you to tread carefully. Certainly an acquired taste with a strong face twisting flavour that would take the uninitiated by surprise.

Dark hazy red, medium offwhite head.
Sharp aroma with green apples, sweaty leather and raspberries.
Taste is good sour with berries and some sweet stuff, not sure what it is.
Finish is very clean and dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Derek. Thanks! Pours a real pretty ruby amber hue, copper with a touch of haze, a a decent frothy white head dies to a small ring, light lacing. Aromas are are sour cherries, raspberries, and preserves. Red wine tannins, wet oak with some decent tannins. A touch of nail polish, with some lactic acid, some sweet caramel, toffee. A touch of toast, caramel, bread. Initial is a lighter bodied approach, with a good sour cherry essence, a good chunk of red wine tannins. Some raspberries actually become more dominant, dry red wine, wet oak. Touches of dry bread, lingering touches of vinegar, barrel tannins, red wine, touch metallic. Some touches of bread and toast, biscuits. Pretty nice with lingering sour berry melange, red wine, touches of vinegar. Solid easily drinkable sour with some life.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear amber red with an off-white head that dissipates completely and quickly. Aroma has notes of red fruits, oak and a bit of funk with a good sour note, slightly acidic. Flavor starts with tart red fruits that evolves in to a sourness with a bit of acid and a nice backing of oak and funk.

Bottle shared by the Czar. Slight smokiness in the aroma with hints of burnt cherry. Flavor is slightly tart and easy to drink.. Not a bad beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
nbutler comes by with the bottle 2/26/10 on 6/25/11.
pours the color of iced tea mixed with cranberry juice. there are a few spritzy white bubbles on top for a few seconds but they quickly disappear.
the aroma reminds me of a hospital... autoclaved this and that mixed with some antiseptic and rubbery notes all swirled in to smells of peaches, wet wood, damp forest and black peppercorn spiciness. there’s also something in the mix which reminds me of the fruitiness and butterscotch characteristics which come from aged (30+ years) burgundy whites.
the flavor is tangy and full of funkiness but only subtle-y sour. there’s a bunch of white pepper and slate along with lesser notes of unsulfured apricots, flowers and more of that deliciously oak aged chardonnay.
it has a strangely soft mouth feel due to very low carbonation and lack of a tart punch. 7/4/7/3/16/3.7
