Pours dark brown with a medium dark tan head that quickly dissipated into a thin but sustainable film. Aroma is brett, earthy, vanilla and caramel. Taste is bittersweet with a tart almost acidic finish. Medium bodied, dry finish and alcohol well hidden.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a hazy pale brown with a thin very light tan head. Sour brett aroma. Perfumy. Tart cranberry juice taste; dry and very melot-like. A little strange, but good!

Pours dark brown with a slight reddish hue. Aroma of brett, wood, and some dark fruit. Phenomenal lacing with dark fruit flavor with some spice, wood, and a surprisingly subtle tartness. Overall, a very nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours muddy brown with light tan head and very little lacing. Strong aroma of anise, cinnamon, sour, fruit, yeast, and wood. Taste is the same with burnt sugar. Finishes sour with some warmth. I like the complexity, but not the sour and yeasty flavors.

Bottled. Pours hazy deep brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of caramel, brett, yeast, some fruit and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and average carb. Nice indeed.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had a sample of this at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan for a surprising $3.50.
Appearance: A brown sort of color with a nice finger of off-white head. Sip-for-sip lacing. Really nice.
Smell: Iíll admit that I havenít been particularly blown away by any sour that Iíve smelled (that I remember). This really kind of smells like a dirty trunk to me between the souring yeast and the barrel. Itís not a bad smell, but itís not exactly a thing I imagine people whiffing and thinking, "DAAAMN thatís good!"
Taste: A bit like the smell. Not as sour as I was expecting. Doesnít taste Christmasy to me at all? Just tastes... sour. A bit of fig in there as well. I donít get any sort of cinnamon or nutmeg or anything that would suggest Christmas to me at all. Reading these reviews, Iíve come to the conclusion that Iím garbage at describing sours... but sour with a slight woody flavor does it. Dark fruits. Almost an orange note. That about does it.
Feel: Thereís a medium body with a surprising amount of carbonation that I feel adds to the sourness.
Very good beer. Maybe Iím just not quite in love with sours as others are. Enjoyable, but itís pricey as hell, and not something I could drink a lot of.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish-brown with a off white head. Taste lightly sour, dark fruity, cherry. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.
