Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Murky brown. Sweet, fruity nose. A bit watery and thinnish on the palate, but not too bad. Smells much better than it tastes. Rather salty in the middle, and a bit in the finish too. Not a drain pour, but didn't do much for me.

Plovmand (6178) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2010
Bottle. Hazy reddish brown with amedium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with light vinegar notes. Light oak and woody notes. The flavour is light sour and dark fruity with some barnyard notes. A little light though. Rather thin body.

Dstructo (7) - Hollywood, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2010 does not count
Extra in a trade... Out of the 11.2oz into a flute. Pours redish brown w/ little to no head. Smells of Juniper & pine. Flavor leaves much to be desired. A little funky, but not sour in the slightest. Thin mouth-feel. Not the ’key to heaven’ I was expecting. No thanks

pepsican (1421) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2010
dark ruby pour with a off white head. Aroma is dusty oak with some fruity sweetness. Flavor follows through, not much sour going on in this one. Just sort of falls flat on the finish.

hawthorne00 (2260) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle, 10C. Brooding red brown with a brief beige head. Aroma of sweet apples, brown sugar, vinegar must, vanilla. Taste has a little acid right up front, then very gentle sugary sweetness. Finishes dry with wood and cherry stones. Rather watery. More acidic than it smells and the sweetness and mustiness seem to pretty much disappear. Pleasant enough but very thin.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a dark cola brown with a small fizzy beige head. Sweet and sour malt aroma, with oak, cherry and vanilla. Flavour of mildly sour cherries, with a touch of sweetness - quite muted and water mouthful. Rather one-dimensional and unimpressive.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Pours a nice brown with little head. Nose is clear on oak, with malty taste and woody, slightly sour. Nothing special, but not bad.

beernbourbon (1265) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle. Pour is clear and deep brown with hint of red - almost looks like coffee. Also a small beige layer of foam. Aroma is lightly tart with notes of chocolate covered cherries, light chalk, and a distant light maltiness. Flavor is initially tart with a very effervescent body and light berry notes. Then...almost nothing. It’s pretty strange; there is an initial burst of flavor and then almost nothing. There is a hint of wood and tartness in the finish. Very easy going down. Certainly one could drink gallons of this stuff. I did not dislike this beer, there is just not much there. I will likely drink it again, especially in the summer months.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to swalden28. Poured dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was cherry, grape, chocolate, and grain. Flavor was cherry, chocolate, and caramel/grain. Body was light and fizzy.
