375ml bottle shared. Pours a dark amber. Funk and sour aroma. A bit of vinegar and grapes on the nose. Smooth without a jolt of tart, yet sour enough to really pucker. Nice and balanced sour.

Då jag vill kalla mig själv som en passionerad novis kring genren sour/wild ale. Så..tycker jag trots mitt okunnande att det här skriker hantverk, passion och känsla. Syran kittlar svalg och tunga. Rödvinsfat närvarande men pinot noir...och brettanomyces hör enl. vinlagar inte ihop. Men skit samma..touchen av rödvinsfat ger denna genomtänkta bryggd en bra skjuts. Vågar dock inte tänka på vice versa. Alltså pinot noir smaksatt med sour/wild ale. Hur som helt en snuskigt bra upplevelse!

Tap at Hops and Pie. Denver. Poured a murky dark amber with a thin white head. The aroma is citrus acid sour and that pretty much describes the flavour too. The palate has a nice zesty almost sherbet like finish that excites the roof of your mouth and makes this beer a little different and special.

Draft @ Hops&Pie, Denver, Colorado. Pours a hazy amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of oak, sherry, fruits and big vineous characters. Flavour is medium sour, vineous, medium dry and very well balanced. Long, light sour finish. Good brew for sure.

Bottle - Batch 008 - for tonights dreg farming mission. Pours a fairly clean reddish amber with thin white head and soapy lace. Nose of horse blanket, vinegar, lactic acid, citrus, caramel. Medium body, assertive tartness and carbonic bite. Really well balanced sour. Horse blanket, mild vinegar, sour cherry, caramel malt. Haven’t had one in a couple of years and almost forgot how delicious these are.

Big thanks to tectactoe. Really tart and puckering. A fantastic beer. Really glad I had the chance to try it. It’s also got a nice funky back flavor. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Pours a bright amber/copper with a thin white head with lacing.
Cherry is the predominant smell, but also some oak and a touch of tobacco. Also some other lighter fruit smells.
Wow usually don’t like sours, but this is unique like nothing I’ve ever had. Starts out very champagne like with just a hint of cherry and lots of oak. As it goes down, the cherry flavor brightens significantly and leaves a good pucker by the time its down.
Fairly light mouthfeel and a very dry champagne like finish with high carbonation.
This beer is amazingly complex and delicious. Finally a sour I could drink every day and it has to be one that’s expensive and comes nowhere near the midwest. I’ve got another coming in trade and will definitely seek this one out again.
