650ml bottle from the brewery in Toronto, Ontario. Cloudy orange-brown in colour with a thin quickly dissipating off-white head, light lacing. The aroma is red berries, some toffee, bready malts, cherries, some yeast. The flavour is lightly sour and acidic, some cherry tartness, bready malts with a bit of caramel as well. Thin lightly watery mouthfeel, light body, mild carbonation. Finishes quick, lightly acidic. Not the sour beer I was expecting. Very subtle. Maybe better on tap? Was this batch off from others? Need to try this again.

Bouteille de 650ml brasse le 18 octobre 2012. Bire brune avec une mousse beige durable. Au nez cette bire sent la cigarette. En bouche nous sommes dans le mme registre de butch de cigarette et fond de cendrier. Compltement rate. Partage par slovasniper.

Une courtoisie de solidfunk. Merci! Une bouteille de 65 cl ne le 18 octobre 2012. Un liquide plutt brun avec une pauvre tte qui fond en un clin dil. Un nez qui ne donne quun simple parfum de sucre brun. Un got inquitant : de leau et des effets cendrs. Un corps tellement faible. Une texture qui me rappelle un bon St-Laurent frapp. Une finale qui nen est pas une. Il faut ici se rendre lvidence : il sagit dune mauvaise bouteille ou dune mauvaise blague.

Lovely cherry colour sour nose. Refreshing, bright tartness. Spritzy lemon. Some caramel and cherry. Different and interesting.

Bottle. Nose or orange, lemon, chocolate, crap. Thin-looking brownish-red. Flavor is milky, funky, with caramel, chocolate, lactic but with low sourness, just a light lemony tang. Refreshing and strange. The dark malt and sour combo make a weird but interesting marriage.

shoulderbroken (4116) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle at tasting. Thanks Tim. Clear red brown colour, small golden bubbly head. Aroma bit faint, sugary, bit fruity, little bit of stink. Taste sweet and sour oud bruin like. Bit sparkly. Nice and weird. Nice sourness.

TimE (5530) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2013
Dark brown color, dark cherries, raspberries with the smell of wood after rain. The body is very light with lemon, wood, caramel malt, light and refreshing. Totally different than any other beer Ive tried. Very enjoyable. Mildly tart with lingering woody finish. Unique and interesting. Great.

November 20, 2012 - on draught at the brewpub. Slightly hazy ruby with a smallish foamy off-white head. Aroma is dry oak, a hint of vinegar, dried wildflowers - dusty dry; hint of lemon. Taste - ooh - nutty, creamy, lemony - weirdly lactic, but not cheesy or offensive in any way - not much alcohol either; pleasant. Airy mouthfeel, light, sticky, hint of oak, somewhat acidic and dry - good, dry, but needs just a little more .... kick.
