Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a hazy copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was vinous, some Brett, some funk and roast. The taste was moderately sweet, vinous, funk and earth. Nice.

Sarlacc83 (703) - Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2014
From keir, shared w/ Douglas. A: Cloudy brown with an off white head. Good lacing. N: Grapes, cherry, brett, grain, lemon, grapefruit, and acid. T: Acetone and vinegar sourness. Fruit adds some sweetness, but this is sour to the point of burning. M: Medium body, and some alcohol. O: Enjoyable, but since Iím not a fan of acetic american wilds, so it gets a downgrade. Still, worthy.

douglas88 (5903) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle shared by Luke. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small white head. A big sour woody fruity nose. The flavor is intense fruit, grapes, woody, sawdust, pretty sour, but lots of sweetness as well. Tannic vanilla. Very good.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
hazy tea amber, tepid with no head. Playdoh and plastic nose, sulfuric with melon hints, all over with no marriage. Flavor richer, dessert like up front with cinnamon and grass, plastic and mango mid, oddly synthetic combo, buttery sweet dessert crust finish. Flavor more composed than nose, as much desert as sour.

Fobab 2013 Rate #9:
Pours a darkish red, sorta brown color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is oaky and tart but has a sort of weird sweet on sour fruity kind of thing happening.

The flavor drops the sweetness for the most part, itís offers a lemony character and a bright sour fruit punch. Itís also got a nice rich oaky flavor that never becomes over bearing.

BeerandBlues2 (9588) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy ruby with purple notes, a small, effervescent white head, very short retention with a head that dissipates to the glass edge. Aroma is grapes, vinous notes, Brettanomyces, and light biscuit and cracker malt with earthy hops. 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.
