Fantastic beer. Sour and refreshing. Not syrup-y or overly sweet. It is the hallmark of its style.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin egg white head, that clears fast. Wonderful sour aroma. Complex medium sour flavor. Difficult for me to describe, but this is an astounding beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Reddish-brown beer with a slight haze. Aroma is slightly sharp, with hints of fruit. Taste is similar with strong suggestions of cherry and raspberry. Very tart taste. Do not taste hops but there are a lot of flavour sensations in this beer that I would be challenged to describe in words.

sweet feathery jesus this is sour. The sticky sour aftertaste gets more and more unpleasant. Aroma of cheap wine/vinegar. Almost non-existent palate. I couldnít finish it.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2007 I was kind of surprised to find that I didnít like this beer more than I did. It had a sour tarty nose, a pleasant brown appearance and, drank nicely; the flavor had something to be desired though, it sems a little too bitter on the finish. Maybe Iíll like it more next time.
Next time: On tap and I had to give it a higher rating because of the ability to session this beer until the end of time. I drank this all night at my regular pace and didnít get too wasted, it helps that I enjoyed the flavor too.

This is a monster beer. Absolutely top-notch. However, this also makes it fantastically polarizing. I loved it. However, no one else at the table could tolerate the overpowering character. I definitely think that everyone should try this beer at least once with a nice cut of steak with a bit of char on it - I canít recommend the pairing enough.

I canít thank the LCBO enough for releasing this beer. Reddish brown colour with very little head. Incredibly tart on the nose and in flavour. Notes of sour cherry, vinous and delicous.
