Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Light aroma of fruit and sourness. Color is a hazy reddish brown with a small off white head. Taste is packs a sour punch right up front with a lingering vinegar and fruity aftertaste. Sharp carbonation with lingering effects. Great sour. One of my favorites.

AdamJackson (2535) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Blend #3 maroon and dark red blood color. 3 finger head fades fast like sprite. Smells like cherry pie and cinnon graham cracker. Plastic finish. Cherry and raisin at the start with a mild tartness. Hearty amber malt backbone can’t get the after taste out of my mouth

Pours dark reddish brown with a small white wisp. Aroma is tart cherry, oak and light vanilla. Taste is a mild oaky, tart cherry sourness with some oak dryness and vanilla sweetness. Real nice sipper.

Nice tart not super sour. Very balanced oak vanilla cherry skin. Very good take on the style.

rxeight (1293) - Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
750 ml. Batch 4. Dark red. It’s pretty sour, but not too much that it isn’t easily drinkable. Probably could have finished the whole bottle myself. Soft lingering sourness. Quite good. Not sure why it isn’t higher than it is. Maybe the first batches were off, but this was great.

Rusty red with an off-white head. Aroma is red currants, cherries, hint of red wine. Medium-full bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, big fruity finish. Flavours are blackberry, strawberry, red currants, pomegranate. Yum!

Bouteille 75cl de et partagée avec omgrich et Pierre T., thanks for sharing Rich! 75cl, batch#5, brewed 13/03/2014. Ambrée, col blanc cassé. Arôme offre un petit bouquet boisé avec un fruité modéré (baies rouges) et une once de brett. Palais est légèrement aigrelet, pointe fruitée, barrique se note bien. Ce dernier ajoute une fine note de vanille grâce à ce chêne américain. Petite aigreur notamment de brett, malt cara et léger houblonné en fin de bouche. Je note sur la fin un fruité rouge de baies qui se veut plus présent. On arrive péniblement à une Rouge Flamande, mais plus à, comme indiqué, sur l’étiquette à un ajout de Red Ale en fût de chêne.

750 ml Bottle shared by Jason H. 2013 vintage. Let me start by saying I’m not a fan of the style. Yet, JK hits the style of the perfect. Color is a dirty brown with ruby hues, dirty. Aroma is old cherries, sour grain, oak barrel and toffee type malts.

Flavor is a total mirror of the nose. Hints of vinegar that is a turn off for me. Lower carbonation with a thinner body. Lactic sour notes, mild bitterness with a dry mouthfeel. I rate this on a slight curve (leaving out my personal feelings) because they really hit the mark with this brew!
