Pours a dark red color with very small amount of head. It is both sweet and sour with aromas of brandy as well as a strange taste of marinated meat in worcestershire sauce.

Cor vermelha bem escura. Media formação de espuma e persistência. Aroma de vinagre balsâmico, frutado. Sabor medio de vinagre balsâmico, um azedo gostoso. Um pouco frutada. Dulçor marcante. Ameixas, cereja e um pouco de passas. Muito interessante! Gostei bastante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A real cherrybomb of sweetness and great aroma. This is the one beer you need not to miss.

Just add some olive oil and you’ll have a nice balsamic salad dressing. Dark cherry after taste. A bit too sweet for my liking. Does get better towards the bottom of the bottle.

Poured a nice brown red. There was little head which dissipated quickly. Little lacing to speak of. The aroma was sour which was misleading. The taste was great. A tangy sweetness followed by a mild bitter finish. Great beer.

1 of 8 beers I enjoyed at Prohibition Taproom’s Sour Event during Philly Beer Week. Solid sour, but it is not standing out today. Would like to try again on its own and reevaluate it

Bottle, 33cl, shared half-half with a friend straight from the bottle (which means I can’t rate for appearance or aroma). Has a sweeter taste than Rodenbach Grand Cru, but doesn’t lack any complex notes. Tastes like a bit like wine (which I suspect is the barrel aging). Nice, but too sweet for a sour.

Big Tart Green Apple taste throughout. You get notes of bright juicy berries and the hint of oak and fig too. Beautifully crafted and well rounded beer. Enjoy, so delicious!

Pours a dark, reddish brown. Nose is mild acetic acid, dark fruits underneath. Taste is unexpectedly delightful, red grapes, figs and other dark fruits. Finish is slightly astringent. Very enjoyable!

Everything good except its sour, taste crisp like wine & apple cider. Smell sweet seeing oak barrel. But sour is not something for me
