pours a pretty dark pink with a finger of light pink fleeting foam. The beer is pretty. Smells like cranberry, cherry and oak. Some hints of flanders style metallic sourness, lactic sourness and some soil. Taste comes through moderately tart, some cherry some cranberry again. More oak - this reminds me more of a poorly made flanders than a wild or kriek. Thin mouthfeel with lower than expected carb and a semi wet finish. Meh, twice what I’d pay again for it. Serving type: bottle 01-25-2012

This is an awesome sour. Pink and tart with fruitiness that is not forced or candy like. The body is thin with a lactic bite. I really like this one! This one does not disappoint.

Lectvay (170) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 11, 2013
2013 bottle purchased at Boise Co-op. A beautiful pinkish copper, light carbonation, moderately tart, makes my mouth pucker more than it seems like it should. Wonderful bright fruit flavors. Not quite as complex as I expected given the barrel aging, but a great, very enjoyable beer.

Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy amber/reddish with no head. Aroma is of fruits, berries, raspberries. Taste is of fruits, berries, sourness, acidity, raspberries. Palate: Low carbonation. Lacking. Overall: Appearance and carbonation are lacking. Other than that: this is pretty good. Nice fruits.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 Bottle thanks to BoostIPA, thanks! Pours a still looking reddish brown with no head. Aroma is of red fruits, hard to to pick the raspberries from the cherries. Some really light bourbon and oak notes, too. Taste is lightly acetic but overall nicely acid (lactic) and fruity. Mouthfeel suffers from the lack of carbonation (damn!) but still offer a clean drinking experience and feels like a good fruit juice. Hopefully I’ll be able to rate it again someday in prime condition. Good!

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Hazy Copper-ish amber with no head and no lacing. Interesting aroma of raspberries, cherries, nice acidic touch, subtle bourbon notes and light vanilla. Taste is also of raspberries and cherries with a little more bourbon than in the aroma, vanilla, nice acidic presence and light/moderate sweetness. Medium body. Flat. If it was not of the absence of carbonation, this one would probably be a world-class sour. Nice fruits. Very interesting, but the absence of carbonation is a bummer.

czar (5018) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
bottle gracefully shared by mistermathieuc, many thanks brah. pours cloudy, almost dirty, medium dark copper, red tint - fire cider-like colour. no head. bright cherries and raspberries, distinct and nicely blended, stones - touch of earth, cheese, bourbon vanilla with its hint of sweetness, nice tart profile - lactic, citric and soft acetic. low carbonation, light body - oily, lightly tart and sweet grassy-stoney finish. quite nice but the lack of carbonation is clearly a bummer - it would have been an almost excellent fruit lambic..

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pours an amazing ruby with finger white head that leaves quickly. Smell is full of cherry, raspberry, and green apple. Taste is bit of bile, lactic cherry, super red fruit and dominant raspberry flavor. Light to mid body, refreshing. This reminded me of Rose de Gambrinus, very well done.

Pours a clear red with very minimal white head. A few pours contained none at all. Dissipated almost immediately. Subtle raspberry aromas with some barnyard funk are present. A little bit of oak as well. All aromas are a bit more subdued than most sours. Taste is pretty good. Again more subtly than in your face boldness. A sweet and sour raspberry flavor is present throughout with a light spice and oak kick near the end. Feared there was no carbonation at all from the pour, but it was present albeit lower than normal. Mouthfeel is pretty decent. Overall a good, but not great beer. Good flavors, but nothing extremely great and the carbonation issue knock it down a peg, but would still try again.

msante79 (2212) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Picked up a bottle in SD. Pours light reddish amber with small thin head. Aromas of tart cherries, raspberries, some wood, and bit of acidicness. Flavor of wood, light sweet malts, raspberries, and tart cherries with some acidic sourness. Nice amount of fruit and tartness, but seem a bit unbalanced. Enjoyable beer none-the-less.
