AshtonMcCobb (4903) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2016
Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk dregs run. Appearance - cloudy dark brown. Nose - wood and sour toffee. Taste - tangy herby red fruit or olives. Salt. Wood lurking. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - acidic dry start. Some fruit in the middle and then it goes back to the bitter olive.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Big hazy mahogany red and a neat fluffy off white cuff. Nose is puffy berry, charred hungover red wine. Initial taste is a tarry sweetness, proper oaky dryness and spicy Jolly rancher sweetness. Carbonation is sleek and mouthfeel rich and a decent kick from the tartness. Finishes strongly tart, very a rich warming winey funk. Linger is a bit more warming spice but more of the same. Mmmmmmm.

Bottle, CGarvieUK 10th Anniversary Tasting

radio_nowhere (1342) - Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2016
500ml bottle into small snifter glass, clear darker ruby-amber color with light tan head. Aroma notes of sour berries, red wine, oak, apple and vanilla. Taste adds cider vinegar, red apples, blackberries, dried fruits and citrus. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, dry, crisp, almost astringent with fruity dry finish. Pretty red wine dry yet fruity sour, very good.

AdamChandler (4239) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2016
Reddish brown 1 finger off white head. Almost no aroma except a red wine infection. Has a Flemish red ale taste but with a bit more malts than it should have. Sour is toned down. Wood and wine undertones
