Bottle. Pours almost clear reddish amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is sour cherries, caramel, barnyard, leather, citrus and ripe fruit. The flavour is ripe fruit, caramel, sour but ripe berries, oak and is quite vinous overall. Fantastic!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl bottle. Hazy copper pour, small white head. Aroma is sour with prominent berry notes - lots of sour raspberries. Musty oak notes and vanilla. Nice dry red wine tannins and brettanomyces notes. The brett us held back and compliments the wine notes and sweetness very well. Taste us nicely sour, nice raspberries, lovely wine barrel Pinot Noir notes, tannins, vinegar notes, lovely brett. What strikes me about this beer is its elegance and its wonderful balance. Very masterful and well crafted.

750 ml bottle I believe from dmac?? Thanks, Dave. An exciting rate on a lazy summer Sunday. Pours a rich well hazed copper brown pour, healthy orange red glow and mellow haze throughout. A frothy tannish head that dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are a luscious sour brown base preaching sour red fruit, cherries and raspberries, touch of soured plum mixing with firm red wine tannins, oak, some mellow red wine vinegarette. Red wine elements grow, lacto like yogurt, sour lemons, and some funky brett sneak in, dry and funky. Touches of biscuit, bready malts, not much though. A firm red wine base with sour red fruits makes it’s presence felt. Initial is quite lovely, offering a lighter end of medium bodied feel, firm sourness from cherries, raspberries, touches of melon, red wine and more fruity white wine citrus and melon. Touches of vanilla, grapeskin tannins, and wine. A kiss of spirit with a touch of biscuit and maltiness, offers a bit of body that offers something to hang onto the palate, good balance with sour berry and wine barrel character. Middle offers some firm sourness, red berry elements run over each other with cherry, raspberry, and some gentle kisses of currant. Red wine plays well, a bit of vinegar, but staying away from anything cloying or acidic, the balance is really on here with a bit of body to give it a great mouthfeel. Considerably better than Riserva, offering more balance and body, less ABV related harshness and no harsh acedic quality. Very nice here. A good barrel presence, good flavors, firm sourness that doesn’t get offensive and a touch of the maltbill hanging on to leave a bit of body. Sour red fruit, red wine, some touches of melon, citrus, yogurt, and oak. Very nice. Great flavors and feel on the palate. Well done sour effort from Weyerbacher well improved over the dry and boozy Riserva.

Bottle shared by MikeLovesBeer.com. Thanks brotha! Another one I was looking forward to trying. This was sour, but not overly tart sour. Had hints of cherries, cinnamon and slight funk. Overall a pretty solid tasting sour.

Säuerlicher und kirschiger Holzbeginn. Die Säuerlichkeit ist dabei angenehm und steigert sich nicht mehr, das Bier ist weich und ausgewogen. Fruchtig, noch etwas holzig im Abgang. Gut! 8/12/12/12/11/11
