Thanks to PaulUnwin for sharing this one. Cheers, Paul! Pours a hazy red with a white head. Nose is amazing tart berries, vinegar, some tartness, oak, and some vinous qualities. Flavor follows closely. All in all an awesome sour.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL pours with an opaque copper body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma seems flower pedal like with a bit of sweetness and vinegar and passion fruit. The taste is similar as flowery notes quickly meet brown sugar dissolved in vinegar. In the background are murmurs of vague fruitiness.

Bottle shared at tasting at my house. Pours amber brown with tan/off white head. Nose and taste of tart raspberry, funky wood, wild yeast, light cherry vinegar tartness, light caramel and aged oak. Medium body. Well balanced tartness - not overpowering. Raspberry shines through a bit more than the cherry.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David P., thanks! Hazy ugly orange/copper, with beautiful and intense lacing though. Aroma of cherries, apple, spices, acetic notes, brown sugar and flemish red reminiscences. Taste is moderately sweet with cherries and other red fruits notes. Not as acetic as the aroma. Body is light. There’s a very good balance between fruits/sweetness/sourness. Interesting Sour!

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. Hooray beer.
The appearance is autumn leaves, light ruby hues. Fairly hazy with a small, tan head that fades rapidly. Looks acetic.
The nose brings a healthy dose of raspberries, followed by wild yeast. Some lactic presence.
The flavor is pretty tasty. Yeasty raspberries with an acetic and lactic character.
A healthy sour and funk character, but nothing overwhelming.
A solid beer. Would have it again.

Bottle at jtclockwork’s place for a tasting. Pours a slightly murky looking amber with a thin white head. Big sweet raspberry and cherries on the nose, soft and musky with a bit of acid. Medium bodied, soft acid and a bit of tart cherry with some fuzzy raspberries. Absolutely lovely, fuzzy musk and soft acid. Gorgeous stuff.
