kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 One of 400 bottles, available at the Black Star Co-op for the low, low price of $worth-it dollars. This sour pours like a we dream. It’s so dark in the glass it may as well be black. The head builds to a half inch and stays there as you finish the pour. It’s so enjoyable to watch it flowing into the glass it may as well be made illegal since they haven’t found a way to tax that. The head disappears soon but that’s when the aroma takes over. Mellow and sour. Amen to bottle conditioning. I like sours. I don’t love them, but this one I love. Please make more of it. They won’t let me take it out of the bar. Holy happy shit. Yes it is that good. Just drink it. Don’t ask questions. Its the perfect balance of the four ingredients with a happy addition of the bacteria.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin brown head. Deep fruit and wild yeast aromas. Lots of cherry, some fig, and peach. Well-developed flavor, good interplay between malt and yeast notes. Chewy but dry with a lingering sourness and some rubbery brettanomyces notes. This will benefit from some time in the cellar, but drinks very nicely right now.
