On tap @ Capitol Beer & Tap Room; Pours a dark ruby brown with a creamy head that creates a thin lacing. Aroma of plums, brown sugar, tart cherries, ripe figs, woody, acidic. Taste isn’t as sour as the nose indicated though. Tart raspberries and cherries, plums figs, some brown sugar and caramel, some balsamic vinegar, and a bit of funky yeast residing. Moderate carbonation, smooth light to medium body, lingering finish. Good balance of sweet and tart.

Growler from Brown Jug, dark amber beer, white head faded. Aroma is red wine, vineagar, kombucha. Taste is vineagar, kombucha, red wine, something spicy, oak. Palate medium, carbonation subdued. This seems really vineagary at first, but the oak and malt come through.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Robe parfaitement claire cuivre/rouge foncé, tête moyenne blanc cassé de tenue moyenne, aspect meringué. Nez vineux agréable, sur la fermentation, le chêne dépassé par des notes sucrées, vanillées. L’attaque sur l’acidité, les notes boisées et une légère amertume se prolonge sur une bouche ronde, douce (vanille). "Bruit" métallique. Carbonatation faible. Longueur moyenne douce. Rouge brune douce, moins vineuse que d’autres du style. Manque de place laissée à l’acidité.

daje (3982) - NORWAY - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle at Tilt, april 30th 2016. Dark red body with a medium tanned head. Aroma of vanilla, red berries, toast and oak. Taste is sweet with a medium berry acidity, fruit and almond. Sticky sweet finish, light fruit aftertaste. Too sweet, the sourness doesnt get enough room.

Zilverenmaan (19) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2016
Prachtig roodbruin oud bruin met stevige, blijvende kraag. Aroma aangenaam maar overheerst door vanille, meer dan andere oud bruine bieren. Zelfde geldt voor de frisse, zure (appel ) smaak. Opvallend stroperig ook, gelukkig zonder uitgesproken zoetheid. Carbonatie zeer aangenaam ( mild ). Niet de meest typische vertegenwoordiger ( ik houd wel van wat originaliteit ) van het genre maar zeker de moeite waard.

Pedrens (219) - SPAIN - APR 7, 2016
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 Grata sorpresa con esta birra...cerezas, ácetico, levadura, malta tostada, madera...en boca se hace más presente la madera, y algo de cuero y un pelin más dulce de lo que el aroma te dice. Bastante bastante compleja con nuevos matices en cada trago. Mejora bastante a medida q calienta. Habrá q volver a catarla.
