Lightly hazy copper orange color has a thin, wispy, yet frothy, white head. Aroma is tart, yeasty and complex with some light cherry fruitiness and lots of brett. Body starts tart, earthy and fruity with lots of complex Belgian yeasty character. Nice wine flavor and cherry tartness throughout. An enjoyable, unique and authentic brew.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orangey brown. Some light caramelized malt aromas, with something funky, maybe horsey and maybe a bit medicinal. Didn’t seem to get as much cherries as others. More of the same for flavors, but fairly acidic and tart, and a fairly dry finish. It has a nice pleasant light body given all that it offers. This grew on me the more I had.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Brilliant red-orange with some haziness. Good nose, caramelized sugar and vanilla, some banana and breadiness, plus sourness, very interesting. Flavor has a huge bit of ginger in the initial kick, then lots of sweetness and mild sourness. Really incredibly bready and cookie-ish, tastes like a big, chewy Christmas cake. Complex, restrained, and elegant.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Poured a hazy orange with a thin off white-head. Funky barnyard aroma with a small amount of stewed cherries. Flavor was tart and woody. Dry bitter finish. I was hoping for a lot more cherry aroma and flavor. If it was there this would have been a good bit over 4 for me. 1/14/06: Re-tasted Bring in da noise bring in da funk. Aroma moving up a point. Light wine, cooked cherries and plenty of leather and barnyard. wine stands out but in a soft and balanced way easpecially toward the finish. I should have bought many more.

Ruby cedar hue with lingering patchy clouds. Aged syrupy vintage vinegar mixed with oak shavings and barren grapevine..and thats just the aroma. Tangy puckering crabapple and cherries, completed with walnuts. Dry finish that echoes the sweetness.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 thanks to enniskillen for the hookup.poured a murky orange with a small white head.aroma was tart cherries and wine.im impressed with how the oak aging blends in with the tartness.tasty stuff.(BATCH 003 RATED ON 4-22-08).cloudy orange with a nice white head that leaves thick webbing on the glass.i pick up seltzer water,cherries,funk,and sourness in the aroma.flavor is dominated by brett.i also pick up some metal,cherries,and lemons.its good but i cant pick up much of the barrel aging in this batch.the funk overpowers it for sure.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Supplication (also known as petitioning) is the most common form of prayer, wherein a person asks a supernatural deity to provide something, either for that person who is praying or for someone else on whose behalf a prayer of supplication is being made. And I would ask for a beer such as this and BEHOLD! It flows unto me! Subtle and nuanced more than I had expected. Sour, slightly acidic and pure pleasure.

RBESG05: Musty nose, cheese, oak and berries. Cloudy pale orange with a white head. Insanely tasty. Nice sweet and sour combination. Vanilla beans, nutty hazelnut and sour cherries. Really good stuff.
