Bottle at WTWBA 2015 in Minneapolis. Hazy pink pour, small white soapy head. Slightly tart, dark fruit - just okay for me.

Lukaduke (2769) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle thanks to Vasili ! Pours a slightly rosy golden color with a billowing white fizzy foam that takes some time to settle down. Nice layers of basement must, foggy morning grains, wet hay, blackberry, currant, slight cranberry acidity, tight tannins, aggressive champagne like carbonation makes it less chuggable but overall a beautiful beer with nice balance of fruit and funk !

JBPortland (1294) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 22, 2015
750ml bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours hazy bright pink red with huge fluffy 3-4 finger head, tons of bubbles in glass. Nose is pretty subtle, not a ton there but has some nice candy grape and berry notes, soft tartness. Taste is very effervescent, prickly carbonation, medium-high acidity, candy grape, berry, blackberry, cherry. Finishes with some jolly rancher grape, cherry and medium lacto acidity, mostly dry some semi sweet berry notes. Simple sour but nice.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a hazy pinkish with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong currant and berries. Light berry, sour, oak, very nice.

GothGargoyle (1882) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Darkish pick with a pale head. Aroma is blackcurrant, red currants, wet hay, pomegranate. Medium-light bodied, tart on the palate with a lightly sour and dry finish. Taste is blackcurrant, rhubarb.

Alphadelic (1975) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Had this one for a while. A beautiful, crusty pink head on a orangey pink beer. The nose is mellow and fruity with some Belgian yeast character. In TE mouth it is intensely sour, with a burst of tart fruit, some barrel vanilla and a slick smooth finish that hold hints of yeasty white bread and sweetness. This is great stuff.

nealblind (1287) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2014
beautiful purple red. Aroma of gym socks and buttery wood. Tastes very acetic, blackberries, big diacytol butter, lemons. Sharp acidic palate.

Getbetter (985) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - OCT 17, 2014
From a bottle into a goblet. The pour is a hazy grapefruit pink orange. A medium bodied sour with Black currants notes. Sweet and sour with a lot of c02. I like it.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Head is initiall small, frothy, pink, mostly diminishing. Body is medium reddish-pink. Aroma is lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of dish rag, raspberry, cranberry, apple seeds. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Another strike for The Commons...not very clean, and not very expressive fruit character either.

CapFlu (4913) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours a headless fruit punch coloured body. Nose is gloriously tart, berry. Flavour is oddly artificial, the black currant has a short sweetness and turns sour quickly. Falls short.
