Thanks Arlen this is great stuff, pours a reddish orange color, very clear and appetizing, with a small white foamy head. Aroma is very citrusy, I pick up several fruits but none are easy to pin point. Taste is predominently of raspberry, and some cranberry presence as well. Very tart on the pallet as well as sour with very strong carbonation. Nice dry finish.

Thanks a ton to Gromit and Arlen for bringing this amazing brew over. Pours a interesting red/orange/amber color with a small white head. This brew had an amazing raspberry taste, very tart and sour, with a carbonation/fizzy quality that allowed the sourness to really lift the tastebuds. This brew first strikes with a hit of sweetness that fools your tastebuds into putting their guard down, then smacks them upside the head with an amazing puckering sourness. Great brew with a nice dry finish.

Wow! I was expecting something along the lines of a Cinder Cone Red, but boy was I wrong. Pours a redish-amber with very little head or lacing. Aroma is cranberries and cherries? Very tart smelling. There is nothing subtle about the flavor of this. Man is it tart. There seems to be a mixture of cranberry, raspberry and cherry. (that make this a Lambic?) Palate is, well, very tart. Even a few minutes after a sip my mouth is still puckering. Overall this is really good. I don't think I could have more than one at a sitting, though. This is well worth seeking out. Oh, I got this 12oz bottle direct from the brewer and there's no label on it, so I don't know its availability.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Batch #1
(draught) Very hazy, dull orange; no head. Woody nose, vinous, fruit (strawberry, raspberry and cherry). Very tart taste and mouthfeel. Woodiness comes out in power. Sourness is very high, even some acetic acid. Fruit in abundance. Acidburn, outspoken dry-out effect, tannines. I cannot but like it - good one.

Batch #2
Medium yellow-brown head over ruby-shot dark brown beer. Overwhelming fruity-lactic acid nose, wood & tannines. Fruit is definitely dark red fruit, but not identifyable. Much more woody, and way less fruity than the draught batch #1 version in Denver. Tannins, fruity chocolate. There’s a flavor as from the tasty burnt bits from a dripping roast. Lots of milky lactic acid and hints at acetic. Berries - I even get cranberry. Sharp flavours & acids thinning seriously the MF, without becoming watery (God forbid). There’s a malty slickness in the finish. This second batch is completely Flemish Oud Bruin with added fruit. Again a superb beer, when seriously different from batch #1. ARLEN, PLEASE! Get back to brewing! Thanks to BobS and JezzaP for this bottle
