37,5 cl. Thanks to Mikkel(ler). Golden clear colour with a very weak head. Great aroma of oak and very wine-like, also hints of nuts. Flavour of sourness and diacetyl, but in a very complex and nice way.

Courtesy hopscotch. A strawgold pour clean almost no head. Very clean apple, pear, aroma with hints of spice. Very appley fruitiness with hints of abv that is masked well very sour in an all good way. Full even mouthfeel and good carbonation. A very fine sour that hides the 10% very well. thanks Eric

Bottle shared at the Cleveland tasting. Thanks ! I will say I am NOT a fan of sour ales. AT ALL. But this ended up being one of the top beers of the night for me. Perhaps because it was less sour then some. Pour was a nice golden color. The aroma was sour grapes. Taste was lightly carbonated, and had the flavor of a white wine going bad. It took a few sips, but this one definitely grew on me.

The award for the best beer of the night goes to this. Once again from the cellars of miketd I was glad to have tried this. If it ever makes an appearance in the United States I may have to procure a few bottles for my own storage. The combination of sourness and vinuous characteristics make me wonder what would happen if Russian River were to get the chance to play around with New Belgium’s La Folie.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated bronze body had a nice bit of life to it. White grapes, apple, pear and tartness blended nicely in something that most closely resembles some of the stuff to come out of Russian River’s sour experiments.

Flavor / Palate - Sour dry apple fills the throat and nose after a delayed release. The tartness almost immediately sets to work removing all moisture from the throat. While not the most intense beer I’ve had this is definitely a contender. There are none of the aspects of the Grand Cry/regular/Redbach series here. This is a different beast worthy of seeking out.
