CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
On tap at the Bruery’s 1st anniversary party 5/16/09: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a huge pillowy froth of off-white head. Aroma of fresh cherry tartness and a touch of biscuity Belgian malt and toffee sweetness. Starts with good fullness and effervescence revealing a mild caramel sweetness and lots of fresh fruity berry tartness before a sweettart crisp lightly puckering finish. Very well-balanced and enjoyable.

On tap at the Bruery. Tartness is mild. Dark amber color. Very easy to drink. Hint of acetic acid. Hint of ethyl acetate. Very good. Some oxidation. Heavy carbonation.

For a "young" beer this really has flavor. Edging toward sour and tart but not too much. Easy to drink. Sampled at the Bruery’s One year anniversary party.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Last of the keg from the Anniversary Party. Pours with a huge khaki head over a hazed to murky amber body with sediment. Aroam is rich and has winter spices, sourness, bakery, persimmons, wood, and caramel. Taste is nice and tart, with vanilla oak, a decent amount of residual sweetness and a nice fruitiness. Lively carbonation with a dryish mouthfeel.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Draught at The Bruery’s anniversary. Red-brown with a big head. Rich spicy and tart apple aroma. On the malty side for a sour, with a nice spice, light tartness, apple skin, and a medium bitter finish. Medium-light bodied with medium carbonation. Not very sour at this point, but has a nice malty and spicy balance.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
On tap at the anniversary party. Pours a light reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma is tart and oaky with some fresh fruits but very mild. Flavor is mellow sour and more wood. Very light on flavor and could use a good dose of funk. I guess "young" is the key word. Light on the palate and refreshing.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Sample at the Anniversary party. This was very mild, just the slightest tartness, very drinkible, could have drank it all day, very nice for what it was.

kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap at The Bruery’s 1st Anniversary party. Mild sour with some funkiness developing. Tart fruits, grapes and some oak. This will be a very fine beer in time.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap at The Bruery’s 1st Anniversary party, "young" is the operative word for this beer. Just a bit of sourness and funk, this one needs some time.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 17, 2009
At the Sour Bar at 1st Anniversary Party, labeled a Young Flemish Red. Appearance: Light auburn with a decent 1/4 inch head. Aroma: Grape skins, oak and a wee bit of funk. Taste: Sour cherries followed by oak. Due to its youth ( I guess) the flavor fades away quick. Mouthfeel: Thin and very carbonated. Overall: I like where the beer is headed, need a bit more substance to it.
