Lukaduke (3196) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Pours a deep mahogany color with some ruby edges and two fingers of tight eggshell foam. Nose is inviting with ripe burgundy acidity, soft roasted grain, sweet pipe smoke, violets, funky old wood, caramel, dark fruits... Mmmm palate follows with a mysterious fruitiness that is both unique and delicious. Its like soft cognac soaked plums, with cherries, cranberries and pinot noir grapes added into the mix. Nice backbone of soft medium roasted malts with hints of cocoa and caramel that back up the moderate acidity and mingle with an earthy leather and mushroom nuance. Really soft and deliciously delicate sour beer !

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Dark copper body; semi-translucent with a khaki foam on top that disperses quickly to a foamy collar. Tart red apple aroma with a good amount of vinous red grape, red wine oak, & semisweet booziness. I get more wine than cognac on the nose, but thats okay. Faint lemon, mild acidity, & a pinch of lactic acid. Light hints of vanilla, cherry, & wood. Flavor is heavier on the vinous notes, as well as the ripe cherry flavors, coming alive with a good deal of acidity & a nice bite of sour lacto. Hints of cinnamon, spicy oak, red apple, & red wine grapes that battle between lactic sourness & vinous booziness. Slightly dry finish with a lingering sweet boozy cherry & woody finish. Really enjoyable stuff.

BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2014
Dark chestnut pour with a small cashew head that left a spot or two of lacing. Tart plum skin, raisin, cherry flesh, oak, vinegar, funky cheese, and even mild chocolate notes. Really complex and assertive. Not an enamel peeling sour but definitely causes the lips to pucker a bit. Ample carbonation. Delicious!
