Cybercat (5556) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2015 Pours an opaque Coca-Cola brown with a fairly thick litany head. Sour fruit dominates the aroma. Flavor is sour enough to make you exercise muscles in your face you didn’t know you had! Taste is mainly fruity with some malt. Texture is firm and smooth, if not too fizzy. Pucker up, bottoms up!

DocLock (10441) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle shared at Craft Ale House. Pours turbid ruby chestnutty. Nose is tart cherry and grapes, oaky lactic, earthy merlot. Tastes very tart, fruity, and oaky. As it warmed, more fruit emerged, and the tartness and lactic acid flavors remained prominent. This one was great.

pinkzambia (1929) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle: Brown with some deep red tints. Wonderful aroma of leather, brown sugar, red wine, woody, and prune juice. Extremely acidic flavor. At first, you turn your head because of the tartness. Once you get past this, I noticed sour apples, dry wood, wine, and vinegar. I love Flemish Sour ales so I enjoyed this, but not the best out there.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle. 7/9/13. Pours a deep and opaque reddish brown with no head but a few bubbles. Aroma is fantastic; red fruits, berries, vanilla, wood, alcohol, brandy. Taste is aggressive, tart, stringent, highly acidic; dry fruits, raspberries, alcohol, leather, wood; with a long lingering fruit peel bitterness. Fantastic. Mouth feel is wet, slick. Carbonation is low. No lacing. Highly flavorful; nicely barreled. Alcohol is rather evident; I don’t mind.

DrewFace (967) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Much darker than I was expecting, little head. Aroma of red wine and dark fruits and the same in the flavor, also getting a slight blackberry flavor as well. Very good amount of sourness and tartness in this one..,very well balanced overall. I wish I had more than this 11.2oz bottle (that I had to share).

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Dark brown pour with no head to speak of. Aromas of wine, yeast, and dried fruits. This is a really complex beer and well made but a bit too sour for my taste (I’m just getting into sours as of this rating so take that with a grain or two of salt). The flavor reminds me a lot of wine it has definitely absorbed that from the barrel aging. I respect this brew for what it is, maybe when I develop a better taste for sours I can come back to this one again.

Beer5000 (6315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2013
Sampled @ Haand 2013. Slightly unclear deep brown body with a small beige head. Pleasant aroma of sour berries, fruit, mild malt and chocolate. Flavor is sweet and sour, quite sour actually, malt, fruit, some wood and decent bitterness. Fine body and acidic aftertaste. Quite sour but still pretty good balance here.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a very still dark brown. No head to be found on this brew. The nose smells like a mix of oak, nail polish, and red wine. The flavor highlights the nail polish part with a heavy handed oak experience. Sour and varnish like with slight Cabernet highlights. Light to medium body with zero carbonation. I made it through a few sips before I jettisoned the rest down the drain.

Foffern (1803) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep nut brown colour with no head. Sweet and woody aroma of leather, roasted almonds, liqueur, oak, and alcohol. Very sour taste with bitter plumskins, heather, red currants and more sweet berries in the end. Rich and sticky mouth feel, and medium berry bitterness. A very sour ale but develops in the mouth with different kinds of berries. Would be more balanced along with food.
