2009 release, sampled at the brewery during GABF week.Fruity, winey, funky, tart aroma, plenty of white grape and brett character, lightly sweet with notes of melon, straw and wood. Clear rosy-golden color with a lasting, fine head. Flavor is really showing the same blend as the aroma -- sweet, bitter, tart, winey and woody, with plenty of funky, farmy character, hay, spicy bitterness, prominent alcohol and Cabernet Sauvignon. Tannic, dry mouthfeel, warming and full-bodied. Pretty tasty! bleeng (1691) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2009

Pours a lively cheddar orange with a cedar cherry and oak nose. Flavor is springy, zesty lemon with a delicate woodsy finish. Thick on the tongue. Awesome!
Draft at Avery during gabf week. The thing that I like about this beer is the fact that it’s sour without being overbearing. A sour beer for those that love strong ales. Very good. BeerandBlues2 (13806) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Draught at Avery. Pours hazy yellow with a small, frothy, off-white head somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, straw, toasted grain), average hop (flowers), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) with notes of plum, pear, wine, and wood. Full bodied, mineral texture, average carbonation, and a sour finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and sourness. Ratman197 (15350) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2009
