Oak barrel aroma and quiet taste throughout...moderately tart... Nothing overpowering... It's like a flat grape soda aged in an oak barrel.... Sooo ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Michigan Winter Beer Festival - 22-Feb-2014. Big brett flavor here. Sourness really kicks. Fruity and wonderful.

On tap. Gave me a pint of it for some reason. Supposed to come in a 12 oz. Oh well. Pours reddish brown with very little head. Aroma of funk, oak, light fruits. Lightly sour. Flavor is oak, light fruitiness, and a little tartness. Might be a gateway drug to sours for other people.

February 26, 2014 - on tap at Valley. Amber pour with some head. Aroma was woody, funky and fruity. Taste was nicely balanced with a woody finish.

Nsanders (499) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome. Red orange with a thin white ring around the perimeter of the glass. Tart cherries, oak and vanilla. This is a puckeringly sour beer. Lighter body with a sour acidity that clings to the teeth. The bourbon notes were good, but almost too sour.

Draft. Vinegar and berry malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet-tart vinegar, berry, and wheat malt flavor. Nice body and blending. Very good.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at Thirsty Monk during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear, deep gold with a creamy, white head. Citric lemon aroma. Light sweet flavor with punchy tartness, lactic twang, tart lemons. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good tart berry finish with lingering lactic funk. Not bad.

Chudwick (2145) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft in snifter - this was free. Sour and berry with oak barrel. As advertised. Makes me cringe. So why rate it? Just maybe, just maybe this one could have turned me around. But no.
