Pours a nice clear dark amber color with minimal off-white head that doesnít last very long. Aroma is initially a nice full wine aroma with undertones of sour fruit, cherries and oak. Flavor is initially very bitter sour with notes of fruit that turns into a nice bitter oak and wine flavor at the back end where the bitterness lasts a long while. Mouthfeel is average with carbonation decent. Overall this is a solid sour beer.

Aroma of dark cherry, vinegar and alcohol. Pours a coke colour with no head or lacing. Taste is sour black cherry, vinegar (not too much), nice nutty dry finish. I always equate a good sour to eating a good sharp cheese. I love this one.

Pours a deep caramel brown, reminds me of Cola. Very lively in the glass with no head. Smells like red grape and cherries though aroma is weak. Taste is tart initially, followed by vinous and cherry notes.

Compliments of my bro Bytemesis! Bottle pours a reddish brown with a thin ice tea head. Aromas of cherry, oak barrel, and distinct Cabernet. Flavor is intensely complex sour and tart cherries. You do not drink this, you experience it. Yum.

Bottle from Felix.
Pours ruby red, a fizzy head rests down to a ring around the edge of the glass.
Aroma has loads of red currants, slight yeast and funk, wet wood, perhaps some leather, slight alcohol.
Taste is a really great blend of tartness, woody dryness and some slight sweetness hidden somewhere in between; currants, cherries, some red wine and earthy bitterness, vingeary tartness, cigar as well?
Medium body, high prickly carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Something strange in the after taste, canít put my finger on it.
Overall, a very good take on the Flemish red ale!

On tap at Russian River. Pours slightly porterish color. Aroma is port, sour cherry, lemon, roast, caramel. So much complexity. Taste is sour cherry, coffee, and roast fading into lemon juice, lemon zest, long finish.

10/14/2014. From bottle. Medium brown with a tan head. Funky sour aromas with hints of wine and oak. Not overly sour, but very balanced and complex. Truly an awesome beer.

i liked it, but i havenít had a good bottle of consecration since then. the nose was like creamed black cherries, prickly barnyard and Rodenbach-like flemish red yeast with a heavy wood presence and it seemed to be around 7-8%, but recent bottles are a mess: aspirin/vitamins/minerals/gravel combined with excessive alcohol..
