Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with a minimal fizzy off-white head with virtulally no lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast, wood and dark sweet aroma. Medium to abundant body and a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sour flavor with a medium to heavy dark sour finish of long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

375 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear cola brown with auburn highlights and a few sparse bubbles. The aroma and flavor have a tart, acidic character, some sour cherries, wood, vinegar notes (not in a bad way), some sweet malt notes, light to medium bodied. I enjoyed this quite a bit. Cork popped out, but the carbonation was on the soft side with the taste. Seems to have held up very well.

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy Flanders reddish brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes good too; tart and funky with a bit of cherry. Nice on the palate. Good beer!

Emeister84 (918) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of chocolate, toasted nuts, sour yeast, dark fruits, cherries, and dank earth. Dark brown with bronze highlights, and a small, fading, tan head. Sour, roasty, fruity, dry, and earthy. Medium-full body, low-moderate carbonation with a bright tingling sensation coming from the sour yeast strain(s), and finishes with roasty, earthy, funky notes. Delicious!

Bottle. Been saving this review for a rainy day. Bottle compliments of my old lost abbey connect Alen. Thanks for sending this as an extra! Poured a beautiful murky sienna brown with a small to med off white head. Stood around forever and left behind some rings of lace. Aromas and flavor are dusty oak, lactic yeast, sour berries and cherries, rich malt, and funk. As it wamred in my glass it got super rich and complex, lots of dark cherry balanced out by the oaky smoothness and light carbonation. Excellent sour from Tomme.

Damico (2547) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Pours unclear and quite murky brown with almost no head. The aroma brings some tart and sour yeast notes. The flavor is quite sour as well, bringing a pleasant tartness and phenolic notes as well, quite nice. The body is just right, full and bringing a puckering to the cheeks.

Bottle generously shared by ipa247. Thanks Jeff. Pours a muddy brown with no head and no lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of brown sugar, caramel, some cherry, bourbon, and some vanilla. There is also a bit of acetic acid. The taste is sweet and tart with brown sugar, some cherry, a bit of leather, and some bourbon. The finish is tart with a bit of brown sugar. Medium-full body. Low carbonation.
