2012 vintage drunk on 11/22/13. A nice Flanders Red but didn’t blow me away like I had hoped it would. Has a typical Brett nose but lacks strong sour notes. The flavor also lacks in the sour department but does have noticeable barrel aged oakiness to it that isn’t overwhelming. Overall a pleasant wild but not a sour that can be compared to their neighbors at Cascade.

gyllenbock (6899) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle at the Brewpub, vintage 2009. (thanks SirLimpsalot) Reddish/amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of cherries, oak and malt. Kind of mild and easy to drink.

@ Hair of the dog 16-3-9: Flaska från 2009. Tydlig syrlighet, lite smör, röda bär. Inte bäst helt ok.

This smells pretty good - some dark fruit and wood. The problem is the flavor - moldy cherries, caramel, just... old. Not good overall.

Ernesto987 (5289) - Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2015
deep and rich. Lightly tart, like a heavily aged belgium oud bruin. Tons of black cherry, spices, vanilla, and oak flavors. Finish is tart cherries

Sour red smell. Pretty general mild sour red taste with a definitive malt character. Medium body, low carbonation, and no foam.

MrHangover (3720) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy light brownish beer with a tiny indescribable head on top. Aroma is tarty, oaky, fruity. Flavour is light tart, loads of oak and red fruits in there. Very dry mouthfeel, no carbonation. Aftertaste is long and light tart. Decent stuff.

Crooked Stave Tasting Night; hazy orange pour with a thin white head, aroma has light sherry, some raisins, some cherries, hot alcohol, a hint of caramel, pleasant.

Homer321 (3767) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bytemesis. Pours murky, dark red, almost brown with an off white head. Nose is full of tart cherry aroma and dried fleshy fruit. Taste is a smooth and less tart cherry with some slight raisin and oxidation, but isn’t quite papery yet. Light cocoa and a hint of chest thumping sour. A smooth and creamy malt backbone with light vanilla as well. Very good.

GothGargoyle (2123) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
Reddish brown with a nice golden head. Aroma is cherry, fig, sour plum, red wine vinegar, red currants. Medium bodied. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, great balance of fruity sweetness and sharp tartness on the palate with a passing hint of bitterness followed by a slightly jammy finish. Taste is sour cherry, plum, pomegranate, cranberry, red currant, red wine vinegar.

kaser (5113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Dark red pour from 12oz bottle at Lakehouse. Bottle from trade. Cherry and fruits for the aroma. Sour for sure. Wood chips and earthy fruity taste. Good shiz
