Bottle. Pours clear ruby with a medium, fizzy off-white head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is cherry, raspberry, barnyard, nutty, phenolic, and grassy hops. Flavor is phenolic, bandaids and medicinal, dark fruits, toast and cookie malt, lactic sourness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth.

jmm635 (981) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Pours a beautiful, dark magenta color with very thin head. Aroma of oak, sour cherries, raspberries, and light vinegar. Flavor is sweet and tart and well balanced. I love it - in the running for best sour beer I’ve ever had!

M_Sack (598) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Tap @ The Local Taphouse, Sydney. I expected a darker colour, this was wheat coloured (? Correct beer poured). In any case their were strong vinous notes in the aroma. This was mirrored through the palate with a refreshing, fruity, yet sour flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Bru during a sour event. Poured a murky very dark reddish purple with no head in particular. Sour dark berries. Dried black raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Currants. Merlot. Bing cherries. Treacle. Tart brew with pleasantly refined dark fruit and oak.

Rask0lnikov (573) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
Almost nonexistent head. No froth at all. Cranberry red colour. Sour cranberry, barnyard at first. Funky, spicy hints and berries again in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, low carbonated interesting drink. The bottle shoud be definitely shared.

Marduk (5886) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2015
375ml bottle. Clear mahagony red/brown color. Tiny size, very brief head. Leather, slightly rotten cherry, mold, bit woody and maybe rhubarb in aroma. Woody cherries, sour, rotten fruits and plastic in taste. Rotten cherries and acidic in aftertaste. Soft fizz. Slick mouthfeel. Not for me.
