bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2013
On tap at the 1st annual Asheville Rare & Wild Beer Tasting 2013, this pours an amber-mahogany that has a minimal head, leaving light lace. The nose is sour and shows some funky active cultures present... yummy! Active fruits on the tongue, sour cherries, Granny Smith apples and mixing sours culminate in a sour cherry finish. Active on the palate, but smooth as the day is long, the contrasts in the mouth are delightful and delicious. So nice to have been offered such a rare treat.

daknole (9224) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Euclid Hall at GABF. Pours a cloudy brown, small head. I get the apple brandy right up front followed by the familiar aroma of the barrel aged sours of NB beers that we all love! Flavor is sour, vinegar, sweetness from the barrels. Damn fun and damn fine beer!

markwise (4501) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2012
On draft at Euclid Hall for Gabf. Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Nose is a wicked blend of apple spirits, vinegar, malt, and wood. Flavor follows the nose: more spirits in the nose than mouth, but all in all a fantastic beer for 7%. Outstanding sour!
