4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin head with a deep brown brew that is pretty cloudy when held to a light.
Very rich aroma.. very fruity and only mildly funky... tart berries.. whaffs woodiness .. grape bubblegum or soda..
tannic berry skins and an abundant fruitiness... some black cherry essence... maybe even some black caps... more oak than the nose .. a little lactic ... some wet leather and wild strawberry essence shows as it warms ... fantastic body for a sour... carbonation seems abundant but helps balance the slightly heavier mouthfeel ...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared, thanks to Santa bytemesis for sending this! Deep reddish brown with short lasting beige head that leaves no lacing. Bitter herbs, dried red fruits, overripe berries, peach, dried apple, sherry, balsamico, light caramel. Light sweet and sour with medium bitterness. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Nice, but a bit too herbal for me. Still a pleasure to try it.

Lots of berries and grapes in the aroma. Vinegary taste, with good length. Not a lot of balance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small off white head, mostly created from very high carbonation that keeps bubbles flowing to the top of the beer. Clear Ruby mahogany colour. Sour, tart dark fruit. Sour flavour, light chocolate, dark fruit, raspberry, cherry, very subtle funk. High carbonation, medium light mouthfeel, dry finish. Very nice blend of complexity.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
310ml bottle. 9/17/15 bottle date. Appearance: Deep brown, clear, with a ruby red hue. Fizzy carbonation on the pour, with an off white head that dissipated quickly.
Aroma: Vinous sour cherry upfront, slight oak and berry character. Lactic acid noticeable.
Taste: Rich malt sweetness, loads of dark fruit character, some light toasted oak, and a Cabernet note shows up on the swallow. Lactic sourness strong throughout, but builds to sharp bite at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a high carbonation. Very little evidence of the 10% ABV.
Finish: Lingering cherry and lactic tartness
Overall: An outstanding sour brown. Loads of dark fruit flavor highlighted by cherry, with a Cabernet vinous character throughout. Amazing complexity for a sour
