Travlr (20945) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft. Dark hazy ruby color, flat. Aroma of vanilla, prunes, citrus, red wine. Taste is softly sour plums, funky and dusty prunes, wine. Very nice.

PhillyCraft (5489) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap, pours a deep amber body with zero head. Aromas/taste of sour cherries, sour cranberry, peaches, very tart, lactic acid. Needed to be more balanced and softer from the oak. A little too tart but the best of the 4.

callmemickey (4205) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Deep red body. No head. Nose is full of bright fruits: cherries, cranberries, raspberries. Perhaps some rose vinous notes. Relatively clean nose... no funk. Flavor opens up with a pleasant juiciness. Mildly sour with a delicate lactic acidity. A liitle thin and juice like. Would prefer some funk or oak to balance out the sweet bright fruits. That would push this into the realm of truly memorable.

NikkTwist (2622) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Dark red grape pour with a minimal head. Full bodied sour. Red wine barrel flavors. Pomegranate. Dried strawberries. Hint of caramel. Just a slight funk. Well blended but needs some more age to it.

jredmond (7334) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at farmers cabinet with Vinny during PBW. Pours a deep red body with no head. Aroma is cherry, cranberry and red wine. Mouthfeel is dry but nice with notes of tart cranberries and cherries, and lots of vinous flavors.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Tap at Cabinet. Pours a clear amber to brown. Taste is quite zippy, heavier mallic/tartaric acid. Sharp twang. Red wine vinous and thick oude bruin character. Delicious, savory, peppery. Long lactic finish. Soft overall. No aggressive acid character. No acetic acid. Would like to try this a few more times.
