355 ml bottle @ home, from a trade. Pours really clear bronze with a minimal head. Aroma is not as tart as expected, some sweet cherries and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste is very pleasant, lots of sweet cherries, some red apples. Nice mix of berry sweetness and light acid. Really nice one!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Bacterial for this 12 oz bottle! Kept waiting for a chance to share this one, but ran out of patience. Pours clear copper amber with mountains of white head; decent retention, no lacing. Aroma: tart green apples, some grape must, and vinegar, all underscored by barrel and a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste: Assertively tart, followed by moderate sweetness. The sour aspects aren’t overpowering, and this is surprisingly easy to drink -- I found myself almost wanting to chug it. Palate: Light-medium body; texture is a bit thin and watery, below average carbonation. Overall: I can’t wait for a local brewery to take up the challenge and release multi-pack, 12 oz sours. This is a lovely beer, and I would buy it by the case if I could.

12 oz bottle. Very nice sour smell. The taste very well balanced between malts and sour.

This beer pours a beautiful red color. The Bose is just enough to imply the sour flavors you're going to tase. The sourness is great, a wonderful Flanders red taste with a hint of a little lacto in the beer. Starts smooth, finishes tart, but the carbonation helps clean off your tongue.

Bottle as a bonus in a recent trade. Damn this is tart and sour with lots of fruit. Really nice. Plum aromas and wild yeast. Flavor is a lot of fruit and some chewy malt. Sour finish again. Pours a dark red almost brown. Caramel color. Nice dry finish.
