750 ml bottle shared by jckp64 at DLD 2013- thanks again, John! Pours a hazed muddy amber color with no head. Notes of plums, apples, berries, grapes, oak, caramel, brown sugar, oaky funk, and balsamic. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity mouthfeel. Some mellow spice, as well. Good sour.

Bottle that I took to Andy’s for Paul’s birthday and Joey’s going away (and hopefully coming back at some point) tasting. Pours a hazed ruby and copper amber with a slight white head. Mango, papaya, and sweet fruit, acid and wood. Apparently I should be smelling and tasting dates here as well. Don’t really get that. Woody, soft acid, wood and fruit. Lightly acidic, fruit and wood. Lingering acid, woody, acid. Tasty.

Pours hazy reddish brown with little to no head, aroma has notes of sour cherry, lemon, with some notes of fruit, slight wood and nutty notes. Taste is nutty, earthy, fruity, very complex with notes of tart fruit and woody, with a tart dry finish. Delicious, a bit muddled but awesome.

Rating #3000. 750 ml bottle courtesy of fishingnet. Thanks, Ben. Huge hookup here from the release. Pours a murky brownish swampy hue, some glowing deep caramel cocoa edges with a lively frothing carbonation. The bottle became a slow gusher. Cakey frothy tannish head sits atop and laces, sticks around well. Rusty. Aromas are vibrant citrusy and tropical fruits mixing with sour cherries, lactic acid, and oak. A decent touch of brett mixing with guava, vinegar, and some touches of dark fruits. Raspberries, cherries, and touches of currant. Vibrant strawberry, leather, and earth. Quite a potent sour nose with a melange of complex fruit, which differs a bit from the base with though sour and winey as well, didn’t have a nose that popped like this. Initial is healthy red wine, oak, and lactic acid, making me immediately think of Matt Van Wyk’s sour treatments. Lemons, berries, and currant mix with touches of crisp biscuits and caramel, dancing into more oak, leather, and vinegar touches. A dryness coats after the lively fruity uppercut, offering dry brett, cobwebs, and lactic acid. Fruit remains, giving some tropical and citrusy life, dark fruit touches compliment the red wine oak elements, touches of vanilla. A gentle spice into the finish, with lingering lactic, vinegar, and sour wild elements, oak. More berries, currant. The beer becomes a bit thick and yeasty in appearance as it settles a bit, but the flavors are quite divine, offering many different elements. Finish is fruit and sour, touches of guava and strawberry, sweeter dates, plums, and prunes mellow it out. More oak, lactic yogurty quality grows. Pretty nice, a bit thick and grainy as it settles. Great flavors though, even in it’s colder stages. Not the prettiest beer for sure, and that’s probably why it has a bump down over the base (as it was on tap). Well done collab sour brew here.

Rating number 2,500. Thanks to GregSVT for sharing this bottle at the Flying Saucer Beer Tasting. The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of dark fruit, with a lot of cherries, cranberries and blackberries. I also get a nice dose of brown sugar and some light tartness. The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of tart cherries and other dark fruit, as well as some nice oaked notes. I get a little bit of toffee as well as some light sweetness and brown sugar notes. The sweet and sour components go very well together. The mouthfeel is relatively thin and the carbonation is pretty low. A very nice sour beer.
