From a bottle. Initially I was not into it but it grew on me. Big sour fruit aroma which took some getting used to, the cherries take away from the bitterness, this is not my favourite style of beer.

On tap at the new bar in the Moondog Brewery. The 2014 version is seriously good. They kegged it last week, it had been in oak barrels for about six months. It’s 6.1% rather than 6.9% this time. Still with the same light body but a super complex palate reminiscent of classic Flanders Reds. Also loads of Brett (awesome). I highly recommend trying this new version on tap if you were one of the people who was displeased with this beer last time.

ALLOVATE (2724) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2012
Darkest brown, lifeless and oily looking with good legs. A lot of cherry, candied plum and blackberry, demerara sugar and hazelnut floats atop a smidgeon of hairy Brettanomyces and oak on the nose. Sour, tart and acidic on the palate; those little micro-organisms have gone to town on this one to differ from the aroma. Ultra-featherweight in body with a residual spritz to hasten its presence even further. That strange note of hazelnut is here also but more liqueurish without the viscous mouthfeel. Oaken, weedy linger with just a touch of berry flavoured, sour Warheads™ that seem to rid it of any comparable length . Whilst the Brett has worked wonders it just doesn’t pull off the complex nuances seen in the classics of the style, but then I can’t figure out the style it represents. Touch too much metallic oxidation flourishes also. I don’t know - I just didn’t enjoy drinking this one. A re-rate maybe, but then there is so much else out there!!! (33cL, 6.1% ABV, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours ruby purple with a tall oxidised off white head. Nose is tart with heavy plum sauce and sour cherry. Quite boozy. Taste is only mildly sour and tarty with a fair bit of funk and a domination of heavy plum notes. Not bad but not my kind of thing. Disappointing to get one thats a touch oxidised
