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...

bottle. Initial pleasant vinegaric aroma turned into something no so pleasant. (nothing comparable to other sour beers I’ve tried...) Clear mahogany/ruby. White head, some leftovers stay till the end. Taste is nice, medium sweet, light/medium sour. Average carbonation, medium bodied, sour finish. Would be very good if it wasn’t for the aroma.

Great beer. Dark amber almost brown, thick creamy head. Sweet and spicey malted aroma. Taste was sweet with a pleasant sourness. Mild palate with a medium carbonated finish. First time rating second time drinking. Will post detailed rating later

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.

Dark amber color... little to no head out of the bottle... looks like a flat coke. Clear sour cherry taste.....very sweat as well...nice smooth mouth feel... at first I thought it was a little too sweet but by the end, I’ve warmed up to it

Poured a dark reddish brown. This is my first sour beer and was very suprising with just how sour it is. Very rich flavor that is very sour with a sweet aftertaste kinda like a sweet vinegar. Maybe candy flavors in there too. medium sourness,

Did not know that it was such a beer. Nice color and fruity smell but a sour taste. A weird mix of acidity and sweetness of balsamic vinegar. Once, but not twice for me
