An amazingly good tart beer. I had it from a tap, and it was simply amazing. Even my sour hating wife loved it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee, chocolate aroma with sour notes. Black appearance with tan head with avg head retention. Flavor contains notes of red currants. Roastiness is mild and smooth. A high level of sourness is present and lingers in my mouth well into the after taste. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Sourness level makes the beer mouth puckering dry. Overall, it's a good American sour. I would prefer a little less sourness though since it overpowers the other complexities of the beer.

Bottle. Pours like a stout. Sour aroma, notes of chocolate, grapes, cherries, and a touch of coffee. Pretty sour taste, nicely balanced with sweet fruit and stout flavours. Comes together quite nicely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 2013. Pours black with a fairly big airy head. Aroma is very nice and sour with burned malts, balsamic vinegar, and a massive fruitiness, as well as deep dark whiffs of oak and leather. Medium body with creamy texture with soft to average carbonation. Flavour has an initial dryness with a tart fruity yeast and funky brett with lemon peel, but develops more rounded fruity and vinous notes of grapes and oak giving a nice and long tart finish.

Poured a merky dark brown. Aroma was a nice mixture of fruit and roast. The taste had a subtle oak up front the it blended with the roast and fruity characteristics finishing very tart and dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2013. Pours a dark brown, opaque. Fast dissipating tan head. Aroma is tart, hints of red fruit, oak and funk / yeast. Taste is sour and tart initially, with oak and fruitiness initially transitioning to very light roasted malt undertones. Delicious. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Overall very good, unique.

Bottle. Lemon tart with a little caramel underneath. Taste is sour, light on palate with a long sour finish. Its basically just a nice sour that’s dark. High drinkability.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from craftshack. Pours a thin looking dark brow with almost no head. Aromas of blackberry yogurt, dark sour fruit. Taste is very dry and sour. Flavors of seedy blackberry jam, sour kefir, some lemon zest. Very bright sour notes coupled with some dry roast makes this a pretty deep and complex little beer. At a fair price point, I might add. Finishes with a lasting sourness and a light roast. Pretty puckering. I like this a lot.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sour dark fruits, some light roast and cocoa. Flavour is very lactic and puckeringly sour - very tart and sour, overly sour. Way too lactic and sour for me. Out of balance, sour and vinegary. Another untasteful Bruery vinegar bomb.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brown-copper colour with no head. Smells of leather, raisin and generally sour-like. Flavour is dominated by sourness. There’s nothing that really tastes of stout at all. Enjoyable.

Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff mars-14: aromatisk er dette er stilen på sitt beste, og smaken har en god og balansert surhet i seg som gjør den lett å drikke. et øl som kan fungere både som aperitiff og avslutning på en god aften. Med både brettanomyces og lactobacillicus, og det kjennes. Et godt øl med personlighet.
