Zymurgeist2 (1026) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
On tap at Harry’s Hoffbrau in Redwood City. Pours a dark brown with red highlights. Brown head. Sweet malt aroma delicately balanced by the sour. This beer is amazingly complex and well balanced, and is a very carbonated, spritzy beer. Lots of mellow cherry on the flavor and sweet cracker marrying well with the sourness.

Clear dark brown in color... Aroma of cherries, chocolate, Cabernet barrel, tartness, light hints of vinegar... Flavor is very subdued, chocolate is very prominent, light berries, tartness on palate... A beginner sour, decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Kamikaze. Black with a pretty, fine head. Nose of light vinegar, cream, vanilla, cherries. Rather faint. Sweet chocolate flavor, creamy, cherry, canilla, yogurt. Not all that sour, but well balanced and tasty.

On tap at the local taphouse. Pours a black with a tanned head. Nice lacing. Nose is cherry, dark fruits and roast malt. Heaps of funk on the nose almost like a war head. Taste is dark fruits - plums, cherry and roasted chocolate. Really smooth palate - coated with milk chocolate and war heads. This is fucking awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2059) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2013
Part of the 1000  at AQ Bevolution’s Event at Kamikaze 6.2% A dark cola brown with a beige head & a sour fruity aroma with tart cherry notes. The taste is much mellowed than expected, very woodsy-vanilla, oak-a definite barrel quality to it.  A cherry tartness first, then oak+barrel flavors then a mellow sourness. Nice stuff.

ekoerper (589) - Iowa, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Aroma: tart cherries, pleasant acidity, mellow dark malts and some cocoa, dark ripe fruit, nice. Appearance: pours black, pretty much opaque, fluffy tan head with good retention, little lacing. Flavor: dark fruit and cocoa, sour cherry with just the right amount of acidity, nice light roast malt profile with no astringency. Just a touch of bitterness to balance, a bit of toasty malt sweetness in the finish, some Brett funkiness. Palate: medium body and carbonation, very smooth. Overall: really enjoyed this, great balance and complexity.

Draft. Dark brown beer with a tan head. Tart aroma. Tart and light sour flavor with light dark malts. Medium bodied. Tart and light sourness lingers with light dark malts. Slight clash of flavors.
