1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours to a clear reddish body with a creamy off white head and nice lacing. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is sour vinegar and vanilla. Kind of like a rodenbach or duchess. Dry wood. Flavor is vinegar and sour. Some deep wood character to it too. Creamy up front finishes dry and slick. Enough tartness, this is very much a Flemish red.

Bottle from Mariís. Pours clear brown with a small tan film on top. Looks pretty dead in the glass. The aroma has a big woodiness, vanilla, vinegar, tart cherries. The taste has a big vinegar flavor followed by a lot of wood from the barrel. There is a sour apple and grape flavor. Very good!

Hair6a11 (1348) - Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear dark brown / garnet with a modest fine bubbled khaki head in this glass. Light spotting from the lacing here, average retention here. The nose presents berries, caramel, mild oak notes in earth and vanilla, as well as a bit of mineral water present here. This one is heavy on the berries here initial, it is inherently tart, mild lactic notes here, caramel malts, and i think its lacking a little body, heft, somewhat mild mannered on the sour end of things - but otherwise its a nice attempt, the best ive had from new holland thus far.

Draft. Hazy maroon color, medium off white head. Aroma of sour berries, vanilla. Taste has softly sour stone fruit, vanilla. Dry and dusty finish. Nice stuff.
Earlier Rating: 12/23/2010 Total Score: 4.2
A new arrival at Churchkey, this was a 750 ml bottle shared with Nahem and company, as well as a DC couple next to me who did not reciprocate :-(( A clear blueish brown color (Iím not kidding, Iíve never seen a beer this color). Aroma of sour grapefruit and unidentifiable dark fruits. Taste is cranberry, slightly bitter, slightly sour (lacto), with a bitter blueberry finish. Very nice.

beerbaaron (1198) - Arizona, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Tap. Medium Brown Amber. Lasting Light tan head. Drippy lace. Aroma is sour, fruity (maybe I was imagining it but I got blueberry - and in flavor as well). Sour, tart, funky. Soft carbonation. Pleasant finish.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Tap. Rich reddish amber pour with a spotty white head. Some oak in this, and a whole bunch of sour / tart dark fruit. Solid and tasty.
