Bottle. Mahogny ruby in color with a beige head. Red berries, tart fruityness, wooden oaky notes and vinegar in aroma. Nice, quite good vibes already from this one. In taste there’s even more oak and tart fruits, which have been vinagered for a while. Pleasant mouthfeel. Leather and fruity sweetness in the end.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a small, lacing off-white head. Aroma of sour berries, yeast, funk, wood and baryard. Slightly sweet flavor that end up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation . An excellent Sour.

Bottle shared with my dad. As I opened the bottle I got a big whift of the beer and damn was I exhited!Pour dark red brown with a beige foam that dissapears quickly. The nose is wonderful, excellent example of the style and reminds me of rodenbach vintage. Big notes of musky oak, lactic acid, vinegar, some sweetness, red berries and a bit of gooseberry as well. Flavour is awesome, starts off very sour then it gives way to oaky, red berries, sweet malts, vinegar, some funk. Not the biggest mouthfeel but overall it?s very balanced and super tasty.

Dark mahogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is sour, oak. Taste is sour, oaky, fruity. The sour is a little puckering (in a good way). Nice to see The Bruery beers locally finally. Welcome to the Illinois Valley.

750 mL bottle. 2013 edition. The pour is a nice dark ruby color with a great light tan frothy head that falls down to a collar with no lacing. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice sour tart dark fruit up front and a solid leather character and a lot of good dark fruits. There is a nice fruitiness and a wonderful tartness. The flavor is really good. There is a lot of barrel on the front in the manner of a lot of oakiness. The dark fruits really come through and there is a beautiful tartness that resonates throughout. The mouth feel is great. There is a perfect carbonation and a light creaminess. The finish is quite tart and lovely with a dry fruitiness on the back end. Really good

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Bottle. Dark ruby. Cherry sour aroma. The taste adds big oaky notes and smooth tartness throughout. Prickly carb but, lighter than expected. Awesome!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
