A dark, fruity, complex brew. Oak flavor is evident, but it’s amazingly fruity. A very high quality beer, worth seeking out.

Wow. First sour I’ve tried, and i must say, I love the style. Poured deep cherry red, with a great beige head. Aroma’s of cherry and vinegar. When it first hits your tounge, it is a bit sweet, but then it gets tart. very tart. Leaves the mouth with a bitt of woody bitterness. Slightly astringant, but well balenced.

750 ML Bottle. Beautiful bottle. Poured deep red with a thick tan head. Very creamy and nice lacing. Enticing nose with vanilla, cherry, oak, orange, vinegar and red wine. Talk about complex. This beauty of a beer gets smoother as it goes down. Tart cherry combines great with the vanilla and the orange peel. This stuff rocks!

This beer is for adventurous folk only. Actually I liked this guy a lot. I had never had a sour ale before, but apparently this is a fine specimen of the style. My first taste-impression of this beer was that it tated of A-1 steaksauce. This leads me to believe that this beer would complement beef extremely well. There is definitely a very distinct sourness about this beer. Reminds me of the Lambiks I’ve tasted.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep, brilliant garnet with a large fizzy head. Aroma is extremely musty and sour, lots of complex, pungent character, like stepping into an old wine cellar. Flavor is mouth-puckering sour and sweet, with loads of tart cherry. There’s a background woodiness but it’s nicely balanced. Very wine-y in its character. I can’t drink a whole lot of this but it is nonetheless delicious.

Bottle. Poured clear brown with a large creamy off-white head that was mostly diminishing with good lacing. Good complex aroma of raisin, port and cask wood. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Moderate sour bitter flavor with a light astringent finish of long duration.
