brokensail (13676) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks, Justin. Dark amber pour with a khaki head. Nose is kind of fruity and has a nice berry note to it. Sweet plum, some red wine, mild vinegar, and caramel. Hint of dates, too. Flavor has a decent balance of sweet and sour to it. Fairly heavy on sweet date, berry, and caramel. Somewhat acetic, but a lot of green apple sourness as well.

Tmoney99 (12060) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Tap. Poured clear dark ruby color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and dark fruit with an small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted complex sour flavor with a medium to heavy complex sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer also exceeded my expectations.
