UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Round 2 of Supplication after a little more experience...damn good beer. 375ml bottle thanks to changeup45. WARNING: stout drinkers first sour. Have the pleasure of drinking a batch 4. After popping the cork I got a familiar aroma of red wine. Maybe some barley wine mixed in. Pours a murky brown color into my balloon tulip glass. Keeps a nice steady thin foam island in the glass. Slight lacing. Sip #1. Holy moly this is gross. OK not gross just not expected. "Give it a chance Art". I keep telling myself "Think wine". Sip #2. Another whiff. Funky aroma. I smell some cherries. Wow is this thing Sour! The taste reminds me of Warheads candies I had as a kid. Maybe a cherry warhead. I wish I had a comparison with a fresh one at this point but Iím sure this is a delicious beer to some. No concern that it has gone bad. Let me check back after Iíve acclimated a bit..............OK Iím back. Iím getting used to this. More cherries coming out now. Still super sour. Causing phlegm to build up. Be right back. ...............ok Iím still going strong. I hope this is entertaining to some. If you enjoyed this message me and send me some other top 100 sours. Iíll do the same. The sourness is tolerable now. I think this is probably how first time IIPA drinkers feel. Iím definitely going to revisit and re-rate this one later. So my last few sips have actually been enjoyable and have changed my perception of this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 @King Arthur (Rome), thanks Alberto! Pours reddish with a medium to little white head. Aroma of cherry, pinot noir, barnyard, dust, cellar mold. Flavour is vinous, citric, lactic, lots of red fruits, astringency. High body, medium to light carbonation. Rough and aggressive, but astonishing!

islay (2155) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Small pour at a tasting, consumed on 5-7-16. Pours copper, clear with a little haze. Sour, malty aroma features scents of apple cider and purple grape. Really pleasant smell. Tart, sour taste. Lemon juice. Bitter. Metallic. Fresh, kettle-style sour mixed with a substantial, barrel-aged quality. Perfectly executed. Frothy in the palate. Really good.

thomashall (629) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from trade. Dark caramel color. Aroma has some cherries along with the wine barrel. Taste is acidic up front with dry wine finish. Not picking up much cherry in the taste. Really well done.

TH28 (362) - - MAY 6, 2016
375ml bottle. Bottled 8/25/15. Appearance: Tea colored light brown, with reddish orange tones. Clear with a moderate off white foam head that hangs in pretty well for a sour. Aroma: Cherry is strong upfront, along with lactic acid, light toasted oak, and a distinct vinous note. Taste: Starts with a light sweetness with a touch of cherry, that quickly turns to a funky, earthy, puckering sour. Back end is distinctly vinous and acidic. Mouthfeel: Light body and moderate carbonation Finish: Very dry, with a lingering musty oak and cherry. Tart. Overall: A very unique sour in that the vinous quality of the Pinot noir barrel absolutely dominates the back end of this beer. This beer is puckeringly sour and tart, with a musty, funky quality. Leaves your mouth watering.
