Flavor is tart grapes and berries, light sweet and crisp malt, light hops and bitterness, earthy Brettanomyces and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with no head at all. The aroma and flavor have tart berries, oak, funk, vinous notes, caramel, lactic notes with a dry mouth feel. The carbonation thing is not usually something that bugs me, but for this I canít help thinking that it would benefit from some.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Keir ! Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a finge rof gaseous foam. The nose is a bit musky with some berry notes, sour cherry, wet oak and a strange malt profile poking through... the palate is much more pleasant than the nose with a similar profile but they balance each other out as the beer warms to room temp. Soft acidity, some barnyard funk and lots of musky grape and berry notes round out the profile nicely. There is a slick almost buttery quality on the finish but overall a tasty treat !

750mL. Pours a full haze, pinkish tea. Medium, white foam. Nose is sweet orange, juicy Brett C, some Brett plasticy phenols. Taste is moderately tart with a small acetic bite, juicy blood orange. Salty. Still, pretty refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle pours a murky, garnet amber with some wispy white head. Nose has a lot of vinegar, red grapes, some white grape too, unripened peach, some funk, cherry, some wet grass. Flavor has cherries and grapes and some funk, but itís killed by a little too much acid. Acidic finish. Not bad, but to me, it seemed like it had all the acid of a Cantillon or a Drie Fontenein without any of the complexity.

Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival. Pours a ruby brown color with white head. Wood, grapes, and some berries in the flavor. I was expecting a more sour or funky beer, but still pretty good.

Bottle shared with friends. This was a great sour. Not super tart or over the top but just a nice balance of tartness and subtle fruit flavors. Very drinkable and super tasty!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Rusty ruby/copper under a very thin white head. Aroma reminds me of a cherry cobbler with some beery bretty barrel wildness. Flavor is sweet with some strawberry-like fruity tones with ample bretty funkiness and dry barrel tones. Dry finish with an aftertaste of sweet sweet cherry/strawberry cobbler.
