Holy shit - a lot going on - smells like wine, tastes like... Nothing I know - full of interest, great sour plum and a heavy lick of oak - inspired.

On tap at the Alehouse Project. Very different, with a great taste. Aromas of apple, caramel, and berries. Taste is sweet and sour, with very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with a thin head.

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. Itís 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.

Brenhophead (597) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2012
330mL bottle. Pours smokey black with a very small white head and a tart aroma (typical for a sour). As soon as it touches the tongue there is a big sour hit and once that subsides there is a slight fruity flavour and a dark choc note. Its almost like biting into a juvenile plum with a thin dark chocolate coating. This beer made my evening, thanks again Moon Dog.

Pungent and black as night on the pour. Cherries do come through, but alas not so much to dissuade a rooster with boobs.

330ml bottle. The more sour ales I try the more I like them and this one was no exception. Red coppery colour with tart bitter aroams jumping from the glass. The first sip had that mouth twisting flavour that lets you know you are alive and sends the tastebuds into overdrive. The flavour is tart and vinergary but is more subdued as the glass empties. Maybe that is just the tastebuds getting used to the flavour.

hawthorne00 (2551) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle. Murky reddish brown with a small light beige head. Aroma of tart plums, apples, brett, brown sugar. Slightly slippery mouthfeel. Lowish carbonation. Taste has plums and apples, a hint of chocolate, quite a lot of tartness thatís mellow until a bretty zing right at the end. Some salt there too. Quite complex and very refreshing.

330ml Bottle- So tart it hurts, but oh so good. A well made sour ale, lambic style beer.

Got a great sour aroma. Taste has some hazelnut, red cherries and plum. Light in middle before a tart finish. Got a lot going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hank37 (109) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2014
bottle from mane liquor. aroma is ripe plums, of course cherry and that funky sour stench we all love. The cherries themselves seem to bring a form of bitterness which is really prominent when it first touches those little taste bud fuckers on your tongue. That bitterness is accentuated by slight hints of coffee and to a lesser extent; leather. Itís an excellent sour, and while Iím definitely not experienced in such beers...itís definitely something iíd buy again.
