Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2009
CPLYFO 09. Bottle shared by Fogdog! Pours an orangey- peach haze with a nice thin lasting white head- film. Aroma is funky- brett, pedio, and acetobacter- tons of fruity sourness, mostly peach and some light sour cherry notes, and a nice herbal almost citrus hop note, but toned down to let the sour and fruitiness come through. Hops come through a bit more in the flavor especially in the middle and come out about even against the sour notes. Peachy, tangy, sour, lactic, malic acid in the end, prickly hop sand prickly acidity work well together here better than any other sour beer. I loved this stuff. Tasted like a perfect blend of a good batch of erics sour peach and a really good batch of La Terrior. Thanks FogDog.

darkguardian (725) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2009
22oz bottle courtesy of Fogdog. This is a hell of a beer. In fact this was one of my favorites of the throwdown and that says a hell of a lot given the lineup. Pours a rusted orange with a foamy white head. Nose is very winelike with some dark berry and grape aromas and of course huge acidity and tartness with alot of heavy wood in the nose. The taste is so damn tasty. I wish I knew what they blended for this, my money is that the eric’s sour peach ale is a part of this cause there is a pronounced sour peach and apple finish. Up front is sour cherry and tons of woody brett. Funky and quite sour but not oppressively so. This was blended to perfection. Awesome beer.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2009 750ml bottle from a recent trade....pours a hazy orange cinammon brown with a frothy white head....aroma of must deadened wood and tart cherry accents....flavors of tart vinegar, cherry, and wood which really comes together pretty well. lively carbonation and mouthfeel that goes along well with the flavors

2nd try at this brew...still pretty tart and vinegary berry flavors that mesh well with a prickly carbonation. Really drinkable. The nose at points can be a little in your face with wood and a little bandaid but that quickly fades.

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle from the Otown throwdown. Fogdog with another mad hookup! Pours a nice reddish/orange color with a small head. Aroma is sour cherries, funk, wood, and vinegar. Flavor is sour but the complexity shines in this beer with some cherries, red wine, oak and 3 day old grass clippings.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
C&PLYFOTD: Bottle, courtesy fogdog. Hazy frothy grapefruit color pour. Tart nose, with some fresh grapes, and cherries as well as some dark oak notes. Very tart, very yummy, cherries and some dark charred oak really showcase the complexity of the beer. Smooth, balanced and yummy.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2009
Sample at O-town throwdown ’09 Pours hazy orange. Aroma has ample tartness and funk with subtle nose of cherry. Taste, sour and fruity (cherry) Overall palate was light with residual faint notes of wood. Could be La Folie’s little sister.

dchmela (2681) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Sampled at C&P Otown Throwdown, big thanks to Fogdog! Pours a nice amber orange, slightly hazy. Sour cherry citrus vinegar aroma. Taste is tart cherry citrus, malt sweetness and some funk. Interesting sour.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle shared by pepsican. Thanks! Poured a clear medium orange color with an off white head. So so smells including the likes of sour cherry, subdued hay, and cereal grain. There was also a whiff of adhesive tape. Light to medium bodied with carbonation on the higher end of the spectrum. Acidity was was about 4 out of 10. Tasted predominantly of sour red fruits and tart red wine.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 Still reddish brown. Red wine vinegar, exotic yet stable. Still in the glass, ruby brown. Fruit forward, some wood, biting and grabs on in the end. It’s less bracing and complex than the la folie in a more approachable way. Pie cherry, damp hay and love. 080909 Lovely funky grassy footy lemony dry aroma. Heavenly. Oh hell yes. Tart cherry, lemon, wood softened beauty. Hibiscus. Seriously. I went back for more without shame, how much better can this beer get?

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Sampled compliments of Pepsican. I loved this. The aroma was wonderful with some good Riesling and cherry notes, of course some good farmhouse funkiness. The flavor is dry and sour with a great little malty sweetness for balance; this is largely sour and has a great funky character with plenty of oak and vinous flavors that work very well in the mix.
