Bottle. Dark amber no head. Yeasty sour aroma with plenty of berries. Alcohol sweetness too. Rich mouthfeel moving to dry end. Good micro bubble zing. Taste is sour cherry, hint of bourbon. Some blackcurrant. Very well crafted - great balance. Up there with the Rodenbach Vintages, indeed maybe better as the BAing gives it a warmth and rounded finish. Top.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours muddy dark brown with absolutely no head. Very complex aroma with dark fruits like sour/bitter cherries, figs, dates, plums and some nice bourbon. Taste starts tart with the fruits mentioned and finishes slightly bitter and tart. Bourbon is present all the way. Long, pleasant aftertaste. Quite balanced considering all the ingredients. Body is pretty heavy with almost no carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer. One of the best and most complex sour beers I ever had.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 12.7oz bottle, no batch or bb date. Bold Object Randomly & Idiosyncratically Smuggled into a generous locals4locals trade box, danke! Dalí meets viticulture manual label, corked and caged. Pours flat and deep bordeaux. Condensed flemish Burgundy, RedBrown aroma: balsamico, cherry stone, milk chocolate, plum wine. Vinous in palate and barrel tannins: oak complements the almond of cherry stone, vanilla, raisin and Mon Chérie sweetness underneath. Drinks like a pinot noir or more bodacious-barreled Spätburgunder, with even less carbonation. Well-made quality US sour that obviously has been granted the luxury of time and patience to grow into a well-rounded sipper. worth a side-to-side tasting with several Rodenbach vintages.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Dark brown pour with red highlights and a small foamy head that fades to a thin film. Aromas are red wine, vinegar, sour cherries, tobacco, and light alcohol. Tastes like sour cherry skins and vinegar. Light sourness. Light tartness in the finish. Some red wine in the finish too. Don’t get any bourbon. Almost no booze either. Surprising that this is 11%. Good sour.
