Large Format - Dark color, slight reddish ting to it. Mild oak taste with a slight, not very overpowering, tart flavor to it. Tartness lingers around for a while.

ads135 (3564) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Pretty decent sour, though a bit underperforming on the tart end. Reddish brown, thin head, with light funk throughout and a woody vanilla presence at the end.

ajnepple (3602) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Draft at Tap and Handle. Reddish brown and clear appearance. Aroma of dark fruits, oak, vanilla and light coconut. Similar flavor, fruity, lightly tart and lightly sour. Medium body with a semisweet finish. Not bad.

thornecb (4878) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Pours dark mahogany-tinged brown into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Blueberry and oak aromas. Dry with sour blueberry and oak upfront turning to bitter blueberry seed in the medium length finish.

cards04 (2379) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
Pours a dark tea colour. Aromas of oak, cherry, vanilla, red wine. Very fragrant. Really nice flavours. Sour cherry, bitter oak, red wine, a bit of burnt sugar. Quite delicious.

burg326 (4736) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
Poured a deep purple color with aromas of wet oak, light blueberries, and some tartness. Flavors match the aromas not jaw shocking sour or tart but enough I say hello with some nice tart blueberry presence. 2015 bottle.

mathieuc (2285) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Sample @ EBF. Pours a light copper with a thin white head that leaves fair lacing. Nose is of berries, lightly sweet and generally fruity. Taste is nicely tart, not too intense and lightly sweet even. Fruity and lightly winey/oaky. Both body and carbonation were moderate. Overall a pretty good option, I’d get that again!

czar (5843) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
sample @ EBF 2015. almost clear dark golden pour, mahogany tint, with a very nice light beige head offering good retention and lacing. wood-forward ale - tannic and astringent, citric acidity - from blueberries i guess - linear but at a good ph; caramel and toffee maltiness, few danky fruitiness, pepper. light carboantion, light body - oily, tart and pleasantly fruity-grassy finish. not very complex but it’s a nice barrel-driven fruit sour.

Ratman197 (11380) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2015
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, light cherry and light horse blanket. Palate was light bodiued and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of straw, cherry, citrus and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry tart lingering citrus finish.
