Bottle 750ml: Clear, deep brown with slight red hue. Great thick white heat. Sour, very clean, malty and bright. Lifted. Caramel and old oak. Sour red fruit. Intense. Leesy. Off dry, sour, not bitter. Medium weight long, fine and acid. Elegant. Layers of flavor. Wonderful balance. Citrus and pomegranate.
Sour beers still need to be clean and this does it.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 750ml bottle. Aroma: light malt, molasses, light hops, very vinegary! Appearance: small head, good lacing, clear body, beautiful red color. Taste: heavily sweet, heavily acidic, moderate vinegar. Palate: full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, astringent finish. I am in love with this beer. Sours are not typically my thing, but wow. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Oh my.. such a beautiful, deep and complex aroma. Rose wine, redcurrant, rose, wood, lots of pomegranates, some cherries, vinegar, tartness,... Tart and crisp in the mouth, with a red fruity and vinous flavour and a fruity-astringent finish. The body is surprisingly robust given the dry aroma. Also a bit warming due to the alcohol but still very refreshing. Intense yet not overbearing. Brilliant!

750ml bottle pours a dark red with a tan head. Sweet and slight cherry and fruit taste. Great beer. Not sour by any means.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very different from other Fruit derived beer. Sweet fruity aroma with a taste of sour foremost followed by a bit of sweetness. Appearance best described as a tan frothy head on a redish brown cola colored liquid. It was very different yet very enjoyable. Recommend to people who prefer red wine over beer.

Reddish brown pour with big head that leaves lots of lacing. Very nice appearance. Aroma of cola, acetic acid (but not strong), oak, and fruit. Taste is tart, cola, sugar, oak, and red and green fruits (grapes, cherries, etc.). Nicely balanced sour.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014
Look: Very light white head which quickly disappears; dark amber/reddish, brown - almost cola like.
Smell: Very nice balance of sour and sweetish notes; cherry, grape and a little brandy/rum notes, all in all very fresh and inviting .
Taste: The sour, tart notes increased compared to smell, still reminds me of berries with some citrus notes, but still some sweetness to be found with some spice. all this gives the beer a nice fresh, light kick.
Mouthfeel: Nice to sip, medium body, good balanced fizzy carbonation with fruity taste which leads to a nice finish. sip leaves medium sour notes to play with long after.
Overall: Excellent sour ale with strong fruity feel, fresh and enjoyable to drink.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: deep, burgundy body with rosy tones & a crackly beige head that reduces rather quickly to a wimpy little skin. Aroma has copious amounts of vinegar with lightly sour cherries, mild cranberry, spice, wood, & vanilla. Lots of apple cider vinegar. Flavor is toned down with still lots of vinegar, but not overpowering. Slightly tart cherries, cola, oak, faint vanilla, & some residual sweetness are present, but vinegar oversees the entire thing. Luckily, I’m a fan of vinegar. Wish this beer was more tart & not as sweet, but it’s still a good brew.
