Dogbrick (12633) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Sample at Crafted Drafts during the "Anchorage Sour Tasting" on 08/14/2016. The beer pours a clear dark brown color with a medium thick light beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of dark fruit, oak and funky yeast. Medium body with flavors of brett yeast, oak, red fruits and malt. The finish is vinous oak and yeast. Pretty good all around.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
750ml corked bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some lemon and red wine grapes with hints of whiskey and yeast. Taste is a light roasted grain and spicy hop bitterness with a lemon tartness and a fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable brew that is balanced and tasty. Recommended.

Char and currant aroma. Black, medium beige head. Charcoal and currant. Medium body, easy carbonation. Tasty, not as much complexity as I would have expected.

jb (3156) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Pretty good but not great. Dark with minimal head. Nose is tart and woody. Plums in the nose too. Very tart initial taste and feel. Dry barrel notes are next. Nice complex finish is the best with this. Ends with some malty and dry notes.

stevoj (4731) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 21, 2016
750ml bottle at share on 6/11/16. Pours out flat, oily black body. Smell goes in another direction, fruity and tart. Taste is also fruity, with more tartness, and more of the barrel elements coming into play. A nice cap to the evening, full of excellent beers

Sour wild ale. Le got de pinot se fait bien sentir celui de whisky un peu moins. Belle rondeur du got en gnral. Lgre avidit. Une rfrence.

Bottle share. Dark brown color with a smaller tan head. The aroma is complex with the barrel notes, vinous bits, and brett. Lots going on here, from buggy tart notes to the woody barrel taste. Dark fruits and more vinous bits. Some moderate sour lingers.
