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.

Pours deep ruby red with a big frothy head. Aroma is apple cider vinegar. Hard for me to pick the nuances in the aroma because that’s really all I can smell; this is probably a result of my inexperience with sours. I do get a hint of citrus if I try really hard to smell beyond the ACV. Taste is pretty sweet. With tasting, more of the fruit notes come through: predominately apple, but also some citrus and grape. Getting almost no hop notes at all. Kind of like a fruit beer, but with a little more funk. Mouthfeel is light with light carbonation as well. Interesting and refreshing. Would like to try more sours so I have something to compare this to.

Bottle. Reddish brown color, clear with a little white head. It smells like lemon peels, musty farmhouse, and sprite. It starts sweet and musty, then hits hard with tart sourness, leaving my mouth a bit sticky, but wanting more. A good, solid Flanders.

Molasses, raisin, grape juice smell. Beautiful, deep dark amber. Persistent head with excellent lacing and mild carbonation. First taste is very much like grape juice, sweet and acidic. Medium- to full-bodied, but champagne-like. Certainly unique.

tulip.Burgundy color small white head. Aromas of hay, wheat and citrus character. Taste reminds me a lot of the acidic flavor profile of a green apple peel, there is also some berry sweetness and apple cider. Moderate body and leave behind good notes of apple.

Aroma of vinegar and white wine. Rich mahogany appearance with lasting thin yellow/carmel head. Sour taste with granny smith apple and malt. Sweet aftertaste. A unique beer unlike any other. Well worth it, one of my favorites.

Belle couleur, odeur de vin, en bouche, très carbonée, acide, assez derourant au début, on s y fait vite.. Goût de pomme acide, arôme de bois, fait penser à de la sangria à certain moment.. Original quand même, mais j y reviendrai pas...

Tap at Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn NY. This beer is not for everyone. Extremely tart and fruity in taste. A great complex flavor that reminded me a little of an aged lambic but not as full bodied or heavy. It is actually quite crisp and refreshing to drink. I love to get it in the summer. Overall a great unique beer.
