2013 bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is a strong tart and sour fruit and oak. Medium mouthfeel with lots of sourness up front with sour cherry and vinegar. Easy to drink a very impressive sour. Really enjoyed this one.

Bottle shared by MrHoppy - thanks! Pours hazy amber with a medium off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is quite woody, with notes of lemony tartness and a bit of spiciness. Flavor is very similar, notes of barrel, red wine, tart cherries. Light sweet, medium tart. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel Quite a nice beer.

2013 version On tap at Brouwer’s cafe sour fest. pours a semi hazy orange color with a medium white head that leaves good lacing, smells of oak, spice, rye and cherries. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but the rye was hardely even apparent. Mouthfeel was medium and semi chewy with a decent amount of carbonation and a dry finish.
This was a great sour, but I was expecting more rye given the name. I like the extra sour kick it has though.

Pours straw like color with off white head. Aromas of sourness. Flavors of tart cherries and cloves with a mild hint of peppers. This was much better on tap than from the bottle. I’m not a huge sour fan, but this is one of the better ones I have had.

Was pleasantly surprised with this one. On tap at Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2013. Transparent orange. Mellow up front, and the rye note really comes through nicely -- a good earthiness behind. Wow does this one develop -- a really nice zing toward the end that really builds. Impressive.

Incroyablement lactique sur fond de pain d’épices, j’aurais apprécié une bouche de plus à abreuver.

2013 bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown with little to no head or lacing. Aroma is heavy on the sour, nice and lactic from brett, a hint of spiciness on the back end. Taste follows, tart spicy goodness. This is probably the best sour I have ever had, psyched to have tried it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to Pint Glass. 5/11/13. SO EXCITED FOR THIS! Pours cloudy orange with an incredibly active (obnoxiously so) white head that will not stop. Aroma is all that is good; sour fruits, tartness, vinegar, rye, oak, citrus, candi, Taste is sour for days; fruity, sour candies, vinegar, spice, acidity, citrus, astringent; nice subtle notes of wood, vanilla, earth (from the barreling?); finish is more sour citrus. No lacing. Medium-high carbonation. Astringent, aggressive mouth feel. This was excellent. Reminds me of Sweet-Tarts. Rye in a sour was a great idea.
