Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2013
750 ml bottle, bottle 1/13 1337, barrel TBB 1-6. Pours dark amber brown with a very thin fizzy head that quickly almost completely disappears, other than a little constant bubbling from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is some sweet caramel, tart acidic fruit and funk with a little butyric acid.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts with tart sour fruit and a little funk. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with very low carbonation.

Overall, great name but a not so great sour.

DrSilverworm (5024) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Tasted during RBWG, thanks to whomever shared this 750ml bottle. Mildly hazy amber brown color. Little off-white head, couple dots of lace. Dark vinous notes, some dark fruit in the nose. Nice sort of flemish red fruity woody notes. Some funky creaminess. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Bigger body. More dry finish. Sour sweet taste. Decent sour brown.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Sampled on the bus at RBWG 2014. Brown, not much head. I got a fruity, earthy aroma with hints of tobacco and leather. Taste is pretty much the same, with a bit of oak thrown in. Odd, but not bad at all.

Bottle shared during the RBWG bust tour (LaZoom!). Muddy brown pour. Nose has raspberry and acetone. Cherry and lactic acid flavors. Whatever, it’s actually pretty good. This beer clearly completed those TPS reports.

Bottle at Dadsgiving! Pours a lightly hazed brown with a thin white head. Soft sweet toffee and a bit of sourness. Malty, sweet, nice bright acid comes in with a touch of acetic. Very approachable, tangy. Long lingering acid with more sweet malt.
