Very Crisp and delicious. Prominent wine barrel flavor with an acidity reminiscent of red wine that has been left open a little too long. Not as complex a five, which makes it actually fairly refreshing

Dark brown pour with whisps of demon blood floating at the top. Funky butthole menagerie makes up the sour taste of sweat socks and belly button cheese.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 2012 bottle sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14
Aroma: The nose is a mix of vinegar, some funk, oak, dark fruit, and some dark malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a light brown colored head on top
Flavor: The taste is pretty sour, with some oak, and a little dark malt/fruity sweetness as well
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a solid overall mouthfeel
I tended to enjoy this one quite a bit. This bottle was quite nice. I’d happily try it again. I would think it works nicely with a few months or a few years on it.

Draft at Churchkey. Thanks, Corey, for bringing this to DC! Hazy maroon amber color, tan edge head. Aroma of sour brandied cherries. Taste like the old sweet and sour Rodenbach Grand Cru.

Catching up on RBAG 2014 notes backlog...bottle, shared by Dresden I think. Tawny amber, aroma of sour grapes/sour cherries, caramel malts, lactic sourness more than funk. Flemmish red ale comes to mind here. Tasty!

Tap at CBC 2014. Dark brown in the glass, nice head. Fruity-sourish aroma. Starts intense sourish, fruity like cherries and some other fruity. Finish a bit milder, dry, bitter aftertaste. Okay.

Tap - fair size foamy head, dark copper/amber color, strong sour Brett aroma and flavor, but not overbearing, mild red wine like flavors, solid malty backbone to balance the sourness - very good for a sour/Brett beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Surly. Pours an opaque copper brown with a fading beige head that leaves minimal lacing or head to speak of. Aroma is amazing combination of tart cherries, crisp green apples and apple cider vinegar. Flavor is same with bright carbonation, medium body and snappy apple cider finish. Easily the best brettanomyces beer I’ve ever had.
