Bruery/cigar city iso:ft. 750ml bottle obtained through the reserve society... Pours a deeper reddish caramel, for the most part opaque although a smidge of light seeps through. A thin creamy barely off- white rests on top... Aroma of subdued sour oak upfront, not too acidic which is nice, sour cherries and dark fruits to coincide. A touch of acidity surfaces midway through and lingers for short while... Flavorwise much of it renders similar to what the aroma suggests. Semi-sweet upfront with a mild acidity that follows closely behind. Dark fruits, cherries, dates and figs withstanding. An earthy following presents itself which curtails any developing sharp acidic qualities. Lighter to medium bodied with an equal amount of carbonation. 8/4/8/3/16

tom10101 (3269) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle (750 ml)! Thanks to jp7161! Hazy light brown with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of red fruits (raspberries?), red wine and acidic sourness. Taste is acidic with malt, red fruits, red wine, wood, dates, spices and peppery notes. Mouthfeel is dry. Alcohol is present. Pleasant sour and fun to drink because it’s quite complex.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2011 I am rating this shit because it is fucken rare. Shared by Merv. Smells like plum, soft cheese. Some acetone in the flavor, a touch of malt sweetness, sherry, fresh chopped wood. Medium sourness. Not too much going on. Fucken hell.

Believe this was shared by dcschiller @ Dak’s Cantillon Tasting...if so, thanks Dave!!! Bright copper/crimson colored hue with a small eggshell head that left a spot of lacing. Literally, a spot. Both nose and flavor show tons of balsamic vinegar, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, tart cherry skins, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with a solid amount of carbonation.

Huhzubendah (2755) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle shared by craytonic. Thanks Matt! The beer is slightly hazy and appears orange to red in color. The aroma offers a strong lactic and acetic presence with some mildly sweet fruit. Smells like a fruity Flanders ale. The flavor is sour and funky, with some lingering notes of cherries. Moderate carbonation with a funky acetic finish. The feel is a bit rough. A good beer, but not great, I would have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-08-2011

Damico (2747) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Pours thick amber in color with a decent tan head. The aroma is fruity with wild yeast notes. The flavors of fruit come in strong at first with wild yeast notes rounding out the brew. Not very puckering sour, more smooth like a Flemish Red with a lighter, chewy body.

dchmela (2729) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2011
Thanks to Redlight for cracking this bottle (or, i should say, gushing as it spewed all over the place). Pours a deep brown and really chunky. Very floral hop aroma, lots of tart sour fruit in the aroma. Taste is smooth malt, slightly tart, fruity guava and a tart of oak. Finishes with a touch of tartness.
