Bottle thanks to Craig!
Red-tinged nut brown, lightly hazy with a thin, bubbly cream head that reduces quickly to a ring. Odd mix of acetone, grapefruit, lemon, red-wine, and celery in the nose. Lightly tart flavor is also a bit off, brown sugar, apple pie, lemon, vinegar, and caramel. The flavor strikes as odd because the carbonation is decent, but as the finish comes almost all oak and I wonder where the flavor went.

A-pours a dark mahogony hazy liqiud, tight bubbly tan head good lace left. S-the oak comes through on this, hints of acetone, acidity and notes of merlot, raisins and plums in the back. T-the oak comes through in the front, hints of acetone and acidity, dark fruity sweetness in the back, just a touch of red wine, lingering tartness in the finish. M-full body and chewy, good carbonation, holds throughout, smooth and creamy up front. D-this is a well balanced sour. lots of oak up front, the sweetness balances out the sour quite well.

Bottle from my homie, Masterski. Split with a bunch of the Chitown Crew. A - Pours a ruby red with a fizzy white head which quickly disipitates and leaves a random bubble here and there. S - Sweet tarts, cherries, sour apples, acidic sour/tart. T - Cherries, slight funk, lots of acidic sourness. M - Light, fizzy carbonation, dry champagne-esk finish. D - This was good, but I think I prefer Red Poppy.

Reddish pour. Off white head. Aroma is loaded with cherries, wood, vinegar, berries, cheese and more. Flavor is fruity and tart but not crazy sour. Cherries, red wine, vinegar, oak. This is a great example of the style. Delicious.

First vintage bottle from CaptainCougar. Thanks Tom! Nose is quite thick with refined wood, dark cherry, and light tart. I was shockingly reminded of Rodenbach Vintage 2007. Nice dark pink color with pretty persistent creamy head. Flavor is a pretty great cherry character with admittedly a certain dry US hollowness of flavor. One of the best beers the Bruery makes, for sure.

Draft @ NotB ’10. Brune pour with some tan head. Oaky, some light raspberry, and a good amount of brett notes. Aroma is mouthwatering. Funky american sour with some citrus and woody flavors.

Sampled on 2/26/2010. This sour ale pours a dark ruby color from a 750ml bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and floral, woody and tart. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart and woody. Lively carbonation. Very tart, and the residual sugar is pretty low. Nicely balanced by the wood and oak. Hints of leather and must. Nice beer, glad I have 4 more bottles. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
