750ml bottle thanks to hopscotch. Pours a brownish red with a small off white head. Nose is rich berries (can’t quite place which) possibly raspberry with tons of acidic notes. Rich full body with sour berry and light vinegar. Far less acetic than I had expected. A very rich and tasty sour, Reminiscent of a lighter Consecration. Very good.

Dark brown, slightly reddish color and pours with a thick tan head. A thin layer of foam remains on top until the last drop. The aroma shows fresh cherries, funky oak, wild berries and plums. Very enjoyable brew. Crisp and refreshing while still packing a nice sour punch. Not intense at all or massively tart but very well balanced. A tasty mix of flavors; grapes, green apple, oak, cherry, a bit of funk, mild vinegar. Great stuff. Love the drinkability. I really didn’t think it was going to be this good.

Thanks Kevin for sharing this! A- Body is a quite foggy, translucent, mahogany hue. Pours with a 1 finger or so soapy off-white head that has good retention. Traces of lacing are left behind in the glass. S- Nose is moderate in strength but soft and balanced. Vanilla, oak, a hint of acidic tartness, and dark fruit. T- Upfront an mild acidic tartness comes through that is the highlight of the profile but balanced with everything underneath. A hint of vinegar, slight sugary sweetness, lots of both soaked and dusty oak. Flavor is pretty consistent throughout and what lingers are faint impressions of the initial flavor. P-Nice full body, with soft, but full carbonation. Quite smooth. O- This is a very good, well balanced, oud bruin overall. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-21-2010 15:00:31

Tart is the word here. Hits you upfront then you get a bit of lactic acid going. I get prunes from this primarily but also a little cherry. Pours an amber red. Sour aromas really waft to the nose.

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.
