Pours a dark rich amber brown with a hint of orange. A little bit of funk on the nose. The taste is nice and tart, with hints of sour cherry from the start to the late middle. A bit of sourness on the palate - in a word, delicious.

On tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville, NC. Reddish brown pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of sour cherry and oak. Bam! A punch of sour cherry hits the tongue first but is met by a nice balance of wood. A well balanced and beautiful sour.

Poured at Falling Rock after GABF at DrBill’s tasting, 3 different blends of the same brew poured by the brewer herself. The first one was by far the most lactic and acetic, with an aroma overall was a huge tart lemon, some nice funky barnyard notes with some grape, red fruit, toffee notes as well. Taste was a big mouth puckering lactic sour with some nice funky barnyard notes to balance the sour, some sweet grape and red fruit also balance, but the sour comes back and keeps your mouth puckered. Awesome stuff.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
On tap at Falling Rock, served by Lauren Salazar after the last session of GABF. Pours with a murky amber brown body with minimal head. All of the samples were of similar color. All showed red wine and oak notes with good acidity. Number 1 was by far the most acetic of the 3 overall. Aromas were funkier, a bit cheesy. Flavors showed some strong fruity notes, most notably cherry. Huge acetic acid overall. Quite sour, but lacked the balance and finesse of Number 3.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy deep amber-orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, vinous, and wood. Flavor of vinous, wood, caramel, and berries with a dry oak finish.
