3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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?

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.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2009 highly tart taste that fades quickly into base palate. Quite a delicious first taste, I wish it lasted longer. re-taste pale orange color with a super sour taste that indeed fades quickly into a balanced finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 On tap at Brouwer’s. Pours cloudy orange amber with a decent head. Nose is a dusty, nutty, peanut buttery funk, a little bit of coffee, and a sourness that’s there but pretty much buried. Flavor is pretty much the opposite- mostly the tart citrus taste. Nice lasting sour finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at brouwers, i think i made a mistake by drinking this side by side with deviation, oh well. pours a hazy orangish color with minimal white bubbly head. aroma is slightly sour with oak notes and kinda musty/dusty. flavor was great up front with a strong sour punch but kinda had a funky aftertaste, probably from the addition of special brett, funky and good!! the palate a was a little off for me but still good, there was a real clash a flavors which i thought came from the blending. some good oak flavors come out once it warms up. i liked it better colder rather than warmer near the end. crazy sour blend!!!
