aleigator (248) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
@ Quintessence - glowing orange-ruby red color, small froth head. Wild yeast, ripe cherries, orange zest, oak and hints of molasse. Cherries and wine define the opening, coated with orange and merlot grapes, backed up by zingy lemon zest and pleasantly smooth acidity. Dough malts feather the vinous fruits, while lingering tartness adds an intriguing, well balanced complexity. Bretts do not take over the taste of the beer, but accentuates the fruits, blended together with oak, malt and sublte sweetness. Lively carbonation, which gives this medium-bodied beer a fitting, velvet mouthfeel, resulting in a pleasant, sour aftertaste.

Ontape (323) - Valley Village, California, USA - MAY 5, 2014
This was a 2012 bottle, itís evolved nicely over fresher ones Iíve had. Always one of my favorite sours. Dank fruit, funk, sour, barrel, lacto... all there and then some. I would drink it all the time if it were regularly available.
