Bottle... This beer rocks!… Clear dark brown ale with glimmers of burnt-orange and a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The bouquet offers caramel and purple grapes with whispers of both oak and acidity. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is quite sour - acidic and acetic – furnishing sour cherries, caramel, toasted oak and a small splash of red wine vinegar. Finishes tangy and fruity. Big-time kudos goes out to growler for sharing this world class beauty!

chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2012
2012 vintage 22 oz. bottle poured into a New Holland Brewing High Gravity Series branded cervoise glass. Pours amber with deep burgundy hues topped with a fizzy beige head that quickly dissipates. Balsamic vinegar, tart black cherry, overripe blueberries, and a touch of oak on the nose. Opens with black cherry and tart blueberry, joined midpalate by malty balsamic vinegar notes. Finishes with continued sour but juicy fruit notes. Moderate to lighter end of medium bodied thanks to a significant malt bill. Light but present fizzy, cola-like carbonation. Fairly smooth. Solid beer that has some characterisics of a Flanders Red. At times a bit too sweet for me, however there was more to like than to not like.

Bottle shared by Dallas, thanks man! Pours a cloudy brown color with a swirling white head. A sour nose with oak and cherries. The flavor is a good Old Bruin inspired brew with tart cherry, woody, brown sugar, light sawdust. Very nice.

yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a more or less clear body, reddish dark golden in color and with a thin layer of off-white bubbles. The aroma is berry-ish and sourish, quite straightforward. Blueberries? The flavor is mostly on the berry side, with some vinegar, lemon notes and a touch of malts. Quite dry. Berry finish. Well, not my favorite, it’s nice, but lacks big time on complexity. 121109
