lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Deep brown with just a hint of red and a thin light tan head. Disappears quickly. Oaky acidity. Malty aroma. Nice tartness on the tongue, slight hints of cherries and pit fruits, some vanilla, more oak and a nice sour finish.

travita (4418) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Look is red to dark red in color with decent carbonation with a white off white head. Very dry finish. Smell is oak, fruit, and a little tartness. Taste is oak and tartness.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Pours a dark brown with redu hue, light on the aroma, but some of the oak and sourness comes thru. Very smooth palate and taste, sourness in the front, oak flatness in the finish. Halfway thru the drink the complexity is hidden, and it becomes a light drinking beer. The first half is complex and very enjoyable, the last half your palate is accustomed and the drink smooths out and the complexity is lost, but still good.

ARMed (622) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008
This is a cross between a sour red ale and a kriek. The flavor has a slighly sour fruity cherry flavor with a hint of smokiness. Extremely well rounded balanced beer that has a exceptional delicate vinous aroma and taste. The wine like character and deep reddish brown color could trick an amateur into thinking that this is a poorman’s wine concoction. This has all the chrarcteristics I enjoy in a beer and believe it would go great with and red meat entree.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2008
A very drinkable beer with smoothness, nice easy oakness, but also challenging with sourness and acid over average.

Adenila (1558) - DENMARK - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle from Beerbiker, shared with Beerbiker. The one we had said oakaged, so it might be a different one. Clear dark brown with a baige head. Caramelized suger and sour ale aroma with a medium tart flavor backed up by eartheren notes. Was overall mild and very enjoyable.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - AUG 24, 2008
11.2 oz bottle pours a slightly hazed rusty brown body with a small beige head. Aroma has earthy wood and spiderwebs, tart berry, caramel, and some cider. Sour character, as expected, has notes of apple cider, tart cherry, and prevalent wood tones. Hints of prunes and caramel. Nice example of the style.
