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

Oh, why did I try this? Was too tart and sour for me, but, It IS a flemish sour, right. Jim, you may have crept into my subconcious. This grew on me, like mss and mold.

11.2 oz bottle, best before 17-03-06. Pours clear red-brown (Coke?) with decent head. Aroma is unlike anything I’ve ever had! It’s sweet but there’s something else. Taste was no different. It was so sweet that even my wife almost liked it (she hates any kind of beer!) with a pronounced tart edge. Definitely an intriguing beer!

Pours as a thick, reddish brown with white head and good carbonation. Aromas of sour, acidic cider with cherry and rasberry notes. Taste bursts of fresh grape juice and red wine vinegar with nice oak notes. I found the overall body to be very light and unassuming with less of an acidic kick than I was expecting. Nicely subtle and the dry finish makes for a good starter beer.

Pours a dark red with an off white head. Aromas of vinegar, grapes, and other fruits. Flavors of grapes, cider, spices and berries. Finish is thin and dry but very refreshing. Good summer ale.

Guest tap at Town Hall in Minneapolis. A breat blend of brett sour and grain sweet. Low hops, as one would expect. Well done. So unusual to find something like this on tap, especially in Minnesota. A little bit sweet to drink too much of it, but a 4-6oz. pour is perfect. Enjoyable.

bottle. Red-brown color...minimal head at best. Moderate sourish nose...hints of vinegar. Sweeter tasting than the aroma hints....thin, vinous mouthfeel. The malt is in there somewhere...not the best of the style but far from the worst. Worth a try, but don’t expect too much.

Tap ay maduro. pours brown with red around the edges, thin off white head. Aroma is sour cherries with a red vinager backing. Flavor is string sour cherries but turns too sweet without as much sour as I was expecting from the aroma. Some raisin, fig, and plum round it out a bit Finished slightly sour with a cloying sweetness lying behind.
