Gushed a tiny bit, but nice dark reddish pour with white head, aroma has notes of vinegar, acetic notes, hints of oak, red grape, tannic oak, really nice smelling. Taste is nice sour cherry, dark fruit, hints of oak and vinegar notes, touch of tart fruit and lemon, finishing really dry and oaky. Delicious!

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
2011-12-03. Hazy red tinged dark brown body, tiny beige head. 3+ Modestly oaky aroma, sour fruit, hints of lemon and cherry. Complexity of the oak grows as you go. 7+ Flavour is similar, steady oak presence, lemon sourness, pithy lemon, lemon and grapefruit seeds, modest sourness lingers pleasantly. 7+ Smooth average plus palate suits the beer, soft carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice, refreshingly sour. Bottle via trade with FlandersNed

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle, huge thanks to Jer & Karen. Hazy ruby mahogany body, thin white head. Nose is lemon & oak, a bit boozy, sweet malt. flavor follows, lemon & wood, nice acid but a strange booziness I’m not a huge fan of. Nice, but a bit harsh.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy beige color ale with s mall bubbly head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart notes with light oak notes. Taste is quiet sour with some light oak and light funky yeast notes with a mild acidity level. Body is quite full with low carbonation. I tasted more funk then bourbon to be honest but very enjoyable beer from one of my favourite brewery.

50belair (2188) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Sean shared at 3F. Reddish/brown pour with an off white head. Sour woody aromas. The taste is really interesting with cabernet, sour stone fruit, funk, and woody notes. Good stuff....

egajdzis (5277) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Original batch, Hazy dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of wild yeast, wood, leather, toasted malts, and light fruits. Taste of yeast, bacteria, wood, vanilla, citrus, and a tart finish.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2011
(11.2oz bottle courtesy of ray101! Batch 472/473. Bottled 3.22.2011). Pours a cloudy dark amber/mahogany color with thin off-white head. Aroma has some wonderful pit fruit, wood, vanilla and a touch of caramel. Taste is sour-acetic with lots of tart fruit. Awesome! Thin bodied with a dry, woody finish. JP really nailed it with this one. Love it!

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 (Bottle) Pours dark reddish brown with a small head. The aroma holds woodsy citrus, spices, light funky/horse blanket, lots of woodsy bourbon/oak, mould, medicine and tiny hints of old hops. Nice, but not super complex nose. The flavour is dry and near heavily acidic with almost no bitterness. Citrus, light funkiness, light medicine and crackers. The mouthfeel is tart with light carbonation. Lingering, aggressive citric and medicine-like finish. Light to medium bodied.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Nom nom nom. Dark fruit acidity with an ultra vinous nose, with mounds of pleasant acetic acid, and cherries. Not overly complex, but gets away with it quite well. Low carbonation and a medium body lead to a hyper dry finish.

craftycarl21 (2208) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Small squat bottle. Pours a dark walnut color with minimal head. Nose is wonderful; great funky cherry sour presence, the flavor bringing excellent vinous notes, a touch of vanilla and wood, and great dry funk. Lovely.
