4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft pour. Very dark with no head. Sour cherry aroma with a little funk. Dark fruit flavors with a really tart cherry flavor fading in to a nice, smooth fruit finish. Brown sugar flavor constant in this one. Extremely drinkable at 11%. A lot of flavor, and overall, a solid sour ale. Loved it.

Draft. Dark pour no head. Smell is a traditional red brown with some brown augar?/ caramel. Flavor is intensely tart. It is woody and balsamicy, sour cherry, funk that disaipates as you go. Harsh first sip but a nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rerated 09.05.2014, 0,375l bottle (2012 vintage) @ home:
No head, just some bubbles, looks like mud water. Aroma is sweet fruity, sugar, thinner, paint, oak, sour red berries, grass, sorrel, hints of bourbon. Taste is sour-ish fruity, sorrel, red berries, oak, minerals, grass, raw rhubarb, berry skin, paint, sugar, caramel, grapes. Medium bitterness, nice acidic mouthfeel, alomst completely flat. Nice, but I also kind of expect more from this. Hopefully it’s kind of a "bad bottle", being completely flat and very muddy.
26.12.2012, 0,375l bottle (2009 vintage) sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Sødmerik frisk fruktig lukt med preg av malt, sukker, maling, eplecidereddik, karamell, plastilin. Frisk syrlig smak med preg av malt, eplecidereddik, karamell, raude syrlige bær, syregras, litt maling. Middels bitterhet som set litt. God.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Lost Abbey brewpub. Look is deep raspberry. Aroma is a bit of funk. Taste is sour, raspberries, raisins, soured (off) fruit. Finish is a lovely full and malty tang. Overall, a beautifully complex sour. Doesn’t completely come together, but it is delicious and interesting. Whose complaining about a crazy sour when there’s so much going on. Not a beer for relaxation.

On tap at Falling Rock. Dark reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of raisins, sour cherries, funky yeast, candi sugar, oak, vanilla and dark fruits. Similar flavor, sour, tart, fruity and complex, there is a lot going on. Medium body, pretty easy and fun to drink. No sign of the 11% ABV. Loved it.
