Bottle (dated March 31, 2010) to oversized snifter. Looks okay; Amber with low carbonation and virtually no head or lacing. Smells pretty good; sour and cherry. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Good, but overpriced. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2012

Hazy red brown beer. No head. Sour woody nose. Light semi crisp palate. Mildly sour wood. Lactose sweetness - almost creamy. Tingly sour minerals induce salivation before a light finish. Sour aftertaste.
12 oz. bottle gifted to me by thebaldwizard for no good reason- thanks a ton, Joe! Dated 3/31/10. Pours a hazed tea color with no head at all. Aroma of sour cherries, oak, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, and apples. Flavor of caramel, apples, oak, vanilla, tart cherries, plums, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with a funky, fruity, mildly tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good sour, probably a little better fresh, though. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2012
Bottle, 12oz. A finger-thick off-white head forms over a clear, dark golden body. The aroma is lightly funky, with berries, cellar and a faint note of spices. Quite tender and pleasant. The flavor has berries, cellar and a little touch of caramel, dry and tart on the palate. Some vinegarish funkyness too, leading to a finish dominated by red berries. A quite nice one indeed, but not my favorite sour beer. 110930 DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2012
12oz bottle, bottled March 31, 2010. Foamy tan head, noisily fades to clear dark red color. Sharp, more pronounced carbonation. Kind of dry texture, but it’s not the most smooth or drinkable thing. Sort of bitey, acidic texture. Satisfyingly sour, no lack of that, but of the small handful of sours I’ve tried so far, this isn’t the tastiest execution (although it’s certainly interesting). Cherry juice aroma underneath the sourness. Sour-funky brett aroma.. I preferred the Brabant to this much more, it’s honestly just to acidicly sour for me.

Bottle pours burnt red-amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of cherry, oak, earthy funk, and a slight herbal quality. Flavor shows the same juicy acidity with underlying notes of vanilla and booze. Overall body is light to moderate, lightly sweet and finishes with moderate drying acidity.

A really good sour. Fulls of aroma’s and flavors of cherry, wood, grass.
A nice sour finish. Well done. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
