Murky brown on the pour, looks like a headless Porter in the glass. Great balanced slightly acidic leaning aroma and flavor of Brett and bugs and raspberries and oak. Quite sour stopping short of being agressive. Just what I’d hoped for from the description.

Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Bardzo agresywne, intensywne. Wysoka, wyraźnie octowa kwasowość, delikatnie paląca w przełyk i ściągająca usto. Mimo wszystko bardzo smaczne

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2017
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016. This is a deep dark bronze looking one, on the top there’s a nice medium sized quite sidesticking beige top. On the nose I get sour prunes and plums. Apricot also I think. Some raspberries for sure also and it’s dark sugary yet really sour. Lovely aroma. It has a mid oily texture in the mouth and it’s just above average on the carbonation. Sharp and lemonic in the taste. Lots of sour dark ripe raspberries. It has a near syrup concentration also. Woody and mouthdrying in the aftertaste. Again, really nice one from this fantastic brewer. 14.05.2016

neongolden (1650) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
(On tap @ CBC 2016 Red Session, Copenhagen) Pours deep brown, reddish highlights, tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, jammy raspberry, light sour cherry, quite oaky, balsamic notes, yeasty funk, pretty tart but with a sweet core as well. Flavour is quite sour despite some solid sweet malt as a backbone, notes of raspberry, tart red berries, oaky wood, lightly vinous, yeast, moderate funk, balsamic, hints of toast. Finish is a mix of persistent sour and dry woody, yeasty character. Medium body, a bit oily, soft carbonation. High sourness level as typical for Rare Barrel, but it works well with this style.

Wow, can’t believe I hadn’t rated this. Had it many times, during the dark ages where many ticks were tragically lost to the ravages of history. Bottle pours dark reddish brown with a lasting light khaki head. Aroma is sharp raspberry, lactic, oak, cherry. Flavor is sharply tart, lots of fruit, raspberry, cherry, even a tiny hint of dark malty sweetness. Medium body, sharp, higher carbonation. Really solid.

Dogbrick (13036) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2017
Sample at Hoof Hearted during the "Zipper Ripper vs Everybody Wants Some Mosaic - Ticketed Event" on 02/04/2017. Murky dark reddish-brown color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of tart berries, oak, yeast and malt. Light to medium body with a tart cherry and berry character and notes of yeast and doughy malt. The finish is moderately sour with a raspberry and cherry aftertaste. Very good beer all around.
