Beaver (1591) - 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.

12.7 oz bottle from Cappyís. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, tart dark fruit, raisins, honey, mild spices, doesnít really get beyond a mild tart character, so sour is a stretch in my opinion, a mild vinegar quality, plums, nothing bad going on.

jandd1983 (3587) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Sampled at the Societe Party 2016. It poured a dark reddish/brown color with no head. The aroma was of toasted malts, earth and some sour fruit. The taste was similar to the aroma with more sour fruits, earth, malts, some raisins and plums. Nice.

Cnesta (40) - grand prairie, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2015
12oz bottle. Small head. Tart taste. It is almost like it is missing something. Light body. It has like a gif or blackberry flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Advocate_Ames (565) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours dark with no foam head. The aroma is tart, funky, some vinegar, and has mild dark fruits. Tasting, it is medium to high in sour intensity. I noticed a good sweetness, some fruit from the raisins, lemon, crisp malt tone, good body, minor mustard seed flavor, and a sour finish. Overall this was a pretty good beverage.

andrewje41 (2407) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Draft 12 oz pour at the Engine House No. 9 sour fest. Obviously, the name sold me on this one. Pours black with a thin oily tan head. Dark sour fruit, soft bran aroma. Some grape, black cherry, and dark fruit sour. Not picking up a lot of what they say is in it, but an awesome sour flavor overall. Very nice beer.

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2015
[ Keg ][ 6oz ][ @Devilís Den ][ $5 ][ Tulip ][ 05.30.15 ]
Darker-than-cola pour, tepid with no head. Ashy nose is lightly sweet, metallic with soft oat/chocolate sweetness. Front palate is thin, oxidized oat before sticky and sugary grape/plum mid palate, juicy but sticky, burnt sugars and oat through the moderate-bodied sticky end, acids too high amidst sweetness, all of drawing similarities to soda. Nothing too offensive, booze in control.

Dogbrick (10740) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Sample at Bobís Bar for CCBW. Pours a somewhat opaque brown-black color with a thin light beige head that recedes quickly to a sparse outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Dark fruit, chocolate and herbs. Medium body with flavors of balsamic vinegar, funky fruit, malt and chocolate. The finish is sour fruits and malt. Decent overall.

Blairgus (3886) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
18 May 2015, bottle. slightly lighter than coke and looks like it with bubbles on the side of the glass. nose is hard to place. it is certainly slightly tart and funky, maybe hints of raisin and i donít think i would have placed mustard but power of suggestion makes me think i can find a bit. thin body and moderately fizzy. tart, funky, a tad oaky. i still canít distinguish the mustard, honey, or raisin. nice
