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. Rating 4800. Pours with a completely clear (first few pours) deep copper to burgundy body with a lasting tan head. Great lace. Aromas are huge and sour. Red wine is predominant. Pedio, dates, lacto, dark fruits, alcohol, vanilla and barrel abound. Flavors are huge! Dark fruits, dates, sour, rich, red wine, acidic, lacto, a hint of guava on the finish. Big, rich, delicious, raisins, barrel, vinous, vanilla and sour. Medium to lively bubbles, rich, sour and decadent. Really nice to drink. A pleasant sour: complex, layered, tasty!

[5706-20130817] Bottle. Toasted yeasty malt aroma. Hazy, dark amber brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sour yeasty malt flavour has a long fruity aftertaste. Medium body is fairly sour. Good. (7+/3/8-/3/15) 3.6

Pours hazy copper with a tiny white head. The aroma has tartness riding over the top of apricots, red apples, earthy wood like notes and some acidity. The taste delivers up tartness and then moves toward thick sourness and then soured citrus. Behind those notes is a persistent acidity. Too acidic for me.

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, didnít have a nose that popped like this. Initial is healthy red wine, oak, and lactic acid, making me immediately think of Matt Van Wykís 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 itís colder stages. Not the prettiest beer for sure, and thatís probably why it has a bump down over the base (as it was on tap). Well done collab sour brew here.

Bottle. Cheers to Paulo (I think) for supplying this. Deep red pour with a tiny off-white head. The nose is somewhat harsh. Musty red grape skin, mild balsamic vinegar. Sweet ribbon candy. A bit rough ní ready. The taste is delicate orchard fruit. Apricots. Acetic funk. Grape skin. A touch of rough acid. Soft carbonation, light body considering the ABV. Overall, fairly solid.

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.

(750ml bottle thanks to GregSVT) cloudy orange with creamy fine tan head. Nose of currant, cranberry, wet wood and earth. Taste of tart berry, currant, blackberry, wet wood and earth. Nice linger, tart, and wet wood stay on the palate.
