Bottle. Treat after my first dose of radiation. Deep, dark, almost black but red, like super dark cherry juice. It also has a bit of a dark cherry nose, and at first sip I get some of it too. Quite fizzy. Tart to its core, this has quite a bit going on ... with hints of an almost gin-like sting. Funky, indeed! (#5425, 2/5/2014)

drjay44 (2613) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, dark brown/black (SRM 40) body....nose is fruits including pomegranate, plum, raisin, brown sugar, hints of whiskey....taste is sweet with tones of molasses, pomegranate, plum, brown sugar, raisin, hints of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, light whiskey, vinous tones, finishing with light bitterness.....mouth feel thick, quite sticky, mildly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light tingle. This is a rich, very sweet, complex, voluptuous beer, that is reminiscent of many dessert wines. It would not be good in a desert. The sweetness, although with many layers, dominates. This is not a beer for those who like dry, hoppy, clean finishing beers. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon, cherry, sour funk, and a bit of hops. Taste is straight strange. It seems like a Flemish red at first, but very quickly turns into something stranger once the whiskey and malt flavors start to kick in. Good balance, but still obviously a combination of a whole lot of different beers.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear reddish brown beer with a medium sized beige head on top. Aroma is funky, doughy and had some roasted characters. Flavour is very sour, tarty and funky. Big oak and cherries going on here. Very nice surprise, didn’t see it coming.

Sammy (8552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours dark brown with some white head. Nice sour cuvee taste, though way too sweet finish. Nice drinkability, to be shared. Bottle from somewhere this year, in the USA.

Pailhead (4761) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries (sweet and lightly tart), light lemon,apple, cola, caramel, vanilla, fruit, and faint whiskey. It pours a dark brown with an orange glow around the edges of the glass. It has a one finger beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is minimal lacing. The flavor starts with quick dose of light chocolate and fruit. The finish has moderate-heavy sweet and tart cherry, a touch of lemon, apple, faint vanilla, a touch of whiskey/bourbon, and oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I’m not sure this was intentional, but it comes across as a decent dark sour.

draft at Blue Monk. brownish ruby pour. lots of dark fruits, sour cherry, balsamic, tart berry notes. red wine like flavors, plus some fruity sweetness, jammy red wine and some tart/sourness. kind of boozy, slightly incohesive, still decent

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2013
650ml bottle into a Samuel Adams glass; served cool. Aroma: Moderately sour. Mild chocolate. Definitely funky. Appearance: Opaque dark brown body with a creamy tan head. Not great lacing. Taste: Pretty sour stuff. Tart and sour. That’s all I’m getting. It’s good, just super super sour. Palate: Medium-full body, low carbonation. Long, sour finish. Overall: Pretty nice. I wasn’t expecting it to be this sour, but it was a nice surprise. Good stuff.

Poured from 12 oz bottle bottling date is 2/8/2013 into snifter. This was part of the holiday pack. Pours a dark brown color with maybe 1 finger head if you pour hard; head is dark khaki colored and leaves very little lacing. Aroma - dominant aroma is sourness and funk, underneath there’s a little chocolate. Taste is very sour (which I like) - sourness is very reminiscent of 100% cranberry juice, there’s a little sweetness, and some dark malt bitterness underneath as well as a bit of rye. If you lick your lips after a drink, you taste the sourness again and it lingers. Finish is quite long and tart. I like sours a lot, but this is very very sour and probably won’t be for everyone.
