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.

750 ml bottle; thanks to grownfool for sharing; pours reddish brown with a little purple and thin tan head; big time grape skins with mild tartness and almost chewy texture; some leathery qualities to this one as well; sticky dry with a little fizziness; lots of fruit, almost red wine flavor from the grape skins; cherries and grape skins with some leathery chocolate and vanilla; damn good stuff

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.

bottle thanks iowaherkeye poured for my birthday afternoon beer! color is a brown orange with nice lively carbonation on the pour and a light coating of dark tan head that fell to a ring on the glass. aroma has medium sourness, cherry, sweet red grape, nice earthy yeast, light wood, and a little leather. mouth feel coats well with carbonation present. flavor gets a bit more tart, medium acidity, dry earthy yeast, dark grape skin, a poke of pear sweetness, and a finish that ends dry and sticks to the tongue for a minute. definitely got better once it had a bit to open up. really nice base American Flemish red that shines due to the barrel aging being on the more gentle side flavor wise.

j12601 (7395) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 30, 2010
Rating number 1900. Bottle from a trade with deliriumfest from BA. Pours a lightly hazed crimson hued brown with a large creamy dense tanned beige head. Sweet cherry and fuzzy funk, sweet caramel behind it, some balsamic tones and a touch of wood. Initially sweet and biting, almost a root beer beginning. Slightly young still, lots of caramel and sour patch tartness. Finishes long and dry, leathery wood, and lingering acid. Delicious. Wish I had a second one of these to check it out again in a few years.
