Batch #2 on tap at Caponeís Black Friday beer event, served in a snifter. Clear dark ruby with a thin ring of head. The nose is very sour with huge notes of wood, fresh fruit, alcohol, and dried stone fruits. The flavor is much the same but somehow more intense with some cereal and vanilla. Sour, sour, sour. This beer is awesome!

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.

Great beer. Cellared for four years. The sour flavor is pretty subtle, but itís there.

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..

No retention and no lacing. Smells of black current, sour fruits and oak. Tastes of sour cherries, oak and wine. Sour aftertaste.

This is probably as close to a perfect beer as Iíll get. Pours dark plum with limited head and limited lacing. Nose is black currents and some candy. Flavours of candy, black currents, maybe some strawberries, sour. Taste is light/med sweet medium sour limited bitter. Full sticky body with a long sour aftertaste. Wow.
