Pours a dark rich brown color - bottle #415/688. This bottle has no carbonation at all - completely flat and obviously no head. Aroma - almost porter like, but raisins, cherry, chocolate and maybe a hint of balsamic. Taste - tartness, chocolate, red fruit. Mildly creamy mouthfeel with an interesting soft finish and a slow finishing mild alcohol hotness. I want to like this, but wish there were some carbonation. Based on other reviews I would say this bottle wasn’t very well sealed. Taste profile seems similar so I don’t think there was spoilage.

750ml crown capped champagne bottle – this is a bottle conditioned wheat ale which is tagged as a doppelbock weizen but it has many elements of a Dark sour bock – kind of like a spritzy beliner brown. Decants a cloudy dark brown with an unusual small cap for a wheat. Aroma has dark fruits mingled with an earthy mustiness (lambic horse blanket?) and a sour tone like a bacter ale, some nutty roastyness. Falvour-wise there is plenty of natural dark fruity esters which play off against the toasty-nutty malts and tart sourness – but the sourness is not sharp and piercing like a Berliner – more rounded and balanced with big malts and fruitiness (Plums) – very drinkable for a sour wheat brun – very wine-like in character - hides the 9.5% alcohol well –a natural to pair with rich cheeses or roast duck.

Bottle at Craft Bier Fest Wien. Filling the shoes of the big story and a big name. Incredibly rich, complex. Vinous, bretty, woody, dried fruits. Intricate balance of sweetness, bitterness, sourness and tannins. Excellent.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle at the brewery in Kelheim. Aroma is acetic acid / balsamic vinegar, dirty oak, cognac-like spirits, earth, soil, rotting fruit, grape jam, oxidized malt. Full bodied, strongly acidic and powerfully sour, yeasty and raw and hot. An absolute mess of a beer that nearly made me gag after the first sip. Schneider is apparently selling these like hot cakes to the "craft" beer fans :/

Dark brown pour, with ruby hues. Medium beige head that dissapears like the head on a can of pop. The aroma is vinous, tart, and has some big vinegar notes. Some big earthy barrel notes very reminscent of a flemish red. Carb is incredibly low, basically flat, and the body is thin, but still full if that makes any sense, it doesnt feel watery, but its thin. The finish is tart, with light vinegar, bready malts, earthy woodsy notes, and no bitterness. Interesting stuff. Alcohol is nowhere to be found, this can really sneak up on you. Gonna be very interesting to see what some age will do to this.

pours a dark muddy brown, with very little head. Aroma has notes of banana, yeast, barbecue sauce, and molasses. Tasting notes include sour fruit, chewy malts, yeast, brown sugar, and barbecue sauce like sweet finish. This is very interesting, and unique beer, and very lambic like in its sourness. Not bad!

Thin tan head, large bubbles, fades quickly then disappears. Rusty hazy raisin colour. Beautiful sour dark fruit aroma. Clean acidity, dark fruit, nice sourness. High carbonation, dry finish. Beautiful.

corby112 (2736) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind. Vinous dark fruit aroma with a strong barrel presence over roasted dark malts. Earthy oak and vanilla notes along with a prominent red wine character. Lots of grape, tart cherry and other dark berries followed by chocolate malt, caramel and coffee bean. Faint acetic presence but it doesn’t interfere with the other characteristics and is not solvent like. Smells like a red wine barrel filled with chocolate covered cherries. Medium bodied with tart sourness and a very strong vinous barrel character that dominates the flavor profile, lingering over the malt backbone into a dry acetic finish. Almost all barrel until the finish with toasted oak, vanilla and dominant vinous red wine flavor with dark grape, tart cherry, currant and other dark berries. Underneath, there is some faint roasted malt but it’s overpowered by the barrel and acetic acid. As it warms the acetic character stands out a but more with strong vinegar in the finish. Still, it’s not solvent like and it blends well with the tartness and vinous barrel notes. Flavorful but kind of one dimensional with all elements of the base beer completely obliterated. I wish that there was a touch of weizenbock flavor but any can’t pick up anything that resembles the style.

It pours muddy brown with ochre highlights; the head almost non existent. The aroma has notes of: toffee, barnyard funk, lemon juice, and dark cherries. The taste is medium sour that finishes medium dry and bitter; there are notes of: lemon juice, cherries, sourdough, and cracked wheat. The palate is medium heavy bodied with light carbonation and a medium sour finish with a slight saltiness. Overall, it’s a great take on a wheat beer - very satisfied.
