COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

Freaky_tiki (394) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
So now we know why they wrap it royal blue paper: there’s a green bottle underneath. Can we not unite & ban green glass for beer? Next surprise is it’s a sour. Nothing on wrapper hints at this but I’m more happier than rob ford with a crack pipe cuz I’m finding it hard to find sour beer in toronto. This is interesting stuff: borderline thumbs up white wine experience & low key sour beer bonanza. The tartness is sublime. Great way to end a fantastic weekend. Will buy anytime I see it.

Corps moyen, acidité, fruits. Assez complece. Mais finalement légère et facile à boire. Tres bien.

Hateball16 (105) - - FEB 1, 2014
Appearance almost opaque brown colour with red around the edges. Light tan full creamy head settles to a thin but persistent cap that laces well. Aroma tart fruits balanced by a nice maltiness. Some mild funk. Flavour a deep vinous quality, some sour cherries, malt profile backs it all up. Mouthfeel medium full bodied, moderate carbonation, long dry and tart finish.
