BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to the angrypirate06. RU-55 Drank while listening to RU486. Pours with a deep brown to mahogany hued body with a medium sized off-white head that fades relatively quickly. Aromas are of waxy, sundried and cara cara oranges, brett, wet wood and funk. Medium malt complexity, earthy, vinous, balsamic. Deep and complex. Flavors are of acid, mostly lactic with medium acidic. Deep malt overtones including toast, roast and caramel, massively vinous and strongly lactic. Pencil shaving and iodine. Good acidity. Slightly rustic with a negative connotation. Complex and quite sour, very light butyric acid. Very lively carbonation, dry. Feels bigger than 7.3%. Good, straight forward lacticly sour red. Overall nicely sour, with a slightly awkward but deep woodsy and waxy funk profile.

Leighton (11355) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle shared on the bus during RBWG 2013 - Jacksonville. Pours cloudy red with a filmy beige head. Massively tart, acetic berry aroma. Big sour flavor, medium sweet, with notes of vinegar and berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Further strong tartness on the finish with leathery fruits, mostly berries. Pretty decent though certainly punchy.

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
