355ml bottle from a trade, thanks wchesser!lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottled SEPT 21 2012 -
Pours dark reddish brown with a foamy head. Aroma of sour raspberries, wood, vinous notes, oak, yeast and tartness. Taste is sour, sweetish and vinous with loads of raspberries, ripe tart fruits and funky yeast. Finish is mouth dryingly sour and lactic with notes of tart raspberries and vinous oakiness. Quite complex and massive sour ale.
355 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper amber colour with a small head. Aroma of raspberries, pie, gooseberry bush and toffee. Flavour of sharp and tart red berries, some herbal notes, soured milk, herbal notes and lactic acid. Medium bodied and a sharp, tart, berryish finish. Alcohol comes through. The lactic acid notes ruin this. Barrel is not very present either. laiti (8468) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ olio, bottled 21.09.2012TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Aroma is sour with lots of berries, sweet maltiness and some red wine. Flavour is very tart and sour with red wine, currants, some vinegar and sour cherries. Also some lactic acid and tart raspberry tones. I like the aggressive sourness here. Even though this is close to a Flamish red ale.
Bottle. This is tasting really yummy right now. Perfect balance of fruity, seedy raspberries and lactic vinous funk. Really need a couple more bottles to save for later. This is a keeper. gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle- kindly shared by Dennoman. Poirs deep amber with a steady eggshell white head. Aromas include fresh tart raspberries and cranberries, oak barreled grapes and a hint of cherry vinegar. Light body, strong on the sour character, tastes of tart fruits, balsamic vinegar. Not the most balanced American sour, but noble through its fruits and barreling.

Bottle, 06/04/2014. Pours reddish brown, ruby highlights, cream head quickly burns away leaving a small ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is sour raspberry, round lactic character, yogurt with a bit of honey, vinous finish, quite woody. Taste is quite tart, sour raspberries, cherries, very acidic, touch of vinegar, red wine finish lingering. Light, spritzy body. Nice sour. drsordr (2659) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle pour clear amber with cabernet hues and quickly dissipating thin head. Nose sour funk, raspberry, wine, oak with a hint of earthy. Taste big tart and sour up front, More cherry than raspberry to me. Tartness lasts throughout. I don’t get much barrel in the flavor. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
(12oz bottle) completely clear, deep ruby brown. Nose of raspberry, vinous wine, grapes, clean tart nose, the raspberries really come out. Taste of raspberries, tart and vinous, clear sour flavors, clean tart raspberry flavors linger on the palate. Really nice. phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from a trade a while back, and I don’t remember which one. Pours a cloudy dark reddish-brown color with a small khaki head that quickly settles into a ring. Aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel, sweet cherries, funk, and vinous notes. The flavor isn’t led by the same sweet notes, but they’re more blended in with the cherries and vinous character. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice sour with good balance. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Deep amber with a cream head. Super sour, acidic, wood, wine, dry, and bugs. Super smooth palate, acidic, wood, tart, dry, wine, sour and a great finish.
