Tasted several times over the past few years from 12oz bottles. Pours dark brown with a red hue and an average tan head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is brett, red wine, caramel, and bread. The flavor is full of very earthy and funky brett, quite vinous, and caramel and dark bread malt. The body is full and tannic with light carbonation and a long funky and vinous finish. As this beer has aged, the funky and vinous notes have become more and more prevalent. This beer was my favorite around the beginning of 2011.

Several years old bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour opaque dark copper brown with thin ecru head. Nose really nice, floral, powdery spice, raisin, light tart, and then good zinfandel. Taste bright up front, some red wine, light cherry or red fruit. Mid palate light funk, some oak, then tannin. Light light spice. Taste disconnected from the nose. Slightly watered down.

Sample from a rep @ Northern Lights. Deep brown pour with a small head. Plenty of red berries, forest fruits. Balsamic-soaked wood. A bit of barnyard and manure. Nice Belgian yeast character. Similar flavor. Moderately funky. Tart red fruits. Umami. Full body, oily. Nice.

Bottle, thank you to JohnGalt1 for bringing this, Ive been wanting to try it for quite a while. Dark brown color with a thin ring of beige head, looks a lot like cola. Nose is mostly barrel and a bit vinous. Hints of the zin I guess. Taste is heavy barrel, lots of sour, and a little bit of sweetness. Lots of vinous notes, some brett. Complex. Thanks again Toby.

12 oz bottle pour. Bottled in 2009. Much thanks to Tyler for sharing this. Pours a cola black with a short fizz head. Sour dark fruit and brett yeast aroma. Cherries too. Wild yeast flavor up front, and slightly tart, though it starts to sweeten up. Wine flavor from the barrel shows. Sweet cherry finish. Solid beer here. Unique, and seems to have aged very well. Hopefully Ill run into this one again some day.

Bottle. Nose is sour, malty. Taste is really not that sour, a bit sweet and malty. Good, but not what I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very woody, musty, quite tart, and a bit of a kind of bloodiness or dirtyness to it, like iron or something else metallic. Weird beer but actually not all that bad.
