You have to like sour beers to like this beer and I do, so very much. They are very hard to come by , especially ones that are drinkable. This is a highly drinkable beer without any terrible after taste.

Another true gem from the wicked week sours! You can really taste the red wine barrels come through on the finish. A really good sour beer.

On tap at Funkatorium. Mild aroma of sour cherries and brown sugar. Lovely sweet dark fruit tastes with an awesome tart bite. Fantastic sour.

500 mL bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh (bottled April 3, 2015). Reddish-brown pour with a quick khaki head. Tart nose of dark fruit, oak, and red wine. Great sour taste of blackberry jam, apple cider vinegar, merlot, damp wood, and Earth. Sour fruit lingers on the palate but is less harsh because of the oak presence and perhaps due to the age of the bottle. An excellent Oud Brune from Wicked Weed.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy dark amber with an red hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a rich blackberry notes that are slightly tart with a bit of acid bite. Flavor has rich blackberry with a bit of tartness that grows through the finish and a hint of wine in the finish,

Pours a translucent dark red with a creamy light brown head. The aroma has a bold musty Brett yeast odor, a note of blackberries, a red vinous scent and a bit of cask. This brew begins with a strong sour berry flavor, then a funky yeastiness creeps in with the finish being sweetly tart with a slight red wine presence... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

McNeillR (2227) - 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.

Very nice sour beer without being overwhelming. I liked the blackberry flavor. This was almost a dessert beer, so it is nice as one serving but not a six pack or session beer. Recommended.

Bottle from bfeld, pour was brown red with a nice off white to tan pink head. Aroma of red wine, cherries, leather. Flavor followed with funk, tannins, horse blankets, finishing tart and sour with a bite and acidity and dryness in the mouthfeel. Light body and low carbonation.

Pours opaque cheatnut with a nice light tan head. Sour fruit and wood dominate he tempting flavor. FlVor is seriously sour, if not enough to make your face do calisthenics; fruity and subtle woody hop notes are in evidence plus just a snip of malt. Firm body has lively, sassy fizz to spare. Enjoy - but please not to oblivion. (And if you do, please call a taxi.)
