Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2008
This brew puurs a clear dark golden color with a medium and fizzy white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sour fruit and Brut champagne. Medium-bodied and dry with a tart fruit character that is mouth-puckering on the first drink. Flavors of sour apple, grapefruit and light yeast in the background. The finish is fruity and leaves a long tart apple aftertaste with a hint of earthy malt. Pretty good overall.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Pours clear golden into the snifter glass with a very tiny head. The head quickly faded to leave a few carbonation bubbles at the top. The scent was very sour with hints of vinegar, sugar and malt. A very sour, carbonated bite up front with an acidic finish. Nice flavors of oak to compliment the sourness. An enjoyable sour ale.

couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle known to be at least two years old, though exact age is uncertain. Clear golden with slight copper hints. Some white head, falling. Spicy oaky and acetic aroma, some sweat, some horse. Relatively clean flavor, somewhat sweet, slight tartness, slight acidity. Almost watery and quickly fading taste and palate.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2008
11.2 fl oz picked up at Discount Liquors for a good price of 3.50, and although it sat in my cold car for a long time the quality did not seem to fade. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Sour nose. Wood, hay, horse blanket, a little sour cherries and lemons. Flavor is about the same. Oak, lemons, grapes, orange, hay, wood, hay and earthy. Flavors are a touch watery but balanced well with a dry and slightly acidic finish. Very satisfying when in the mood for a slightly sour and funky beer.

MuertosPorter (24) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Golden pour with a creamy white head. Aromas of sour milk and yeast. Active carbonation on the palate. Flavors of unripe apples, sour orange, slight amount of vinegar. A bit straightforward, but very enjoyable. Excellent!
