I had been looking forward to this beer in a long time.Well it´s definitely is not my kind of beer.There´s loads of flavour but it is too bitter and sour for my tastebuds.I had trouble drinking a whole bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque mahogany with a small head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The nose is pleasantly barnyardy, apple cider vinegar, and slightly herbal. Very interesting on the palate! Immediate sourness and the strong sting of carbonation give way to a burst of fruit, lemon, apple, and cherry. Acidity is strong throughout and rough on the throat in the finish, like vinegar. So rough, I don’t think I can finish this bottle. Otherwise this is a very enjoyable ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is of apple cider, barnyard yeast.
Pours hazy dull reddish-brown, virtually no head, continuous carbonation from the bottom. A far cry from the photo to the left on this page.
Initial flavor hits with a sour blast then settles back to a bittersweet lasting flavor. Warms slightly on the finish.
I think this just rides the sour thing too much. Not as balanced as their other offering that I tried.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is brown in color supporting a crisp dissipating head. Smell of prominant fruity sour with some wild yeast and oaky aromas. Taste has a very nice balance of sweet and sour with the yeast and woody oak. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation. Not much on sours, but one of the better sours I’ve tried.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very dark reddy brown/black. Tan head.
Strong aroma, red wine, sweet, fruity.
Very sour, intense, fruity, vinegar. Finish of red wine.
Palate slightly too carbonated.
Improves through drinking, may get used to the style.
Not for me but unique and a lot of character.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Ten + years old bottle courtesy of Mark. Pours deep red/brown with no head and a couple of tiny bubbles. Aroma predominantly balsamic vinegar with light berry and oak undertones. Taste is sour but surprisingly pleasant. Very clean and refreshing finish. ReRated an exceptional bottle, love everything about this beer!
