Bubbly red body with a thin white head. Light acetone in the nose, some chocolate and a red-wine that will make you guess this has several varieties of berry in it. The flavor drops the heavy alcohol presence, the oak and wine elements working quite well in tandem as the soft, integrated flavor delivers traditional Bullfrog funk with a considerable sweetness. I would like to see less alcohol in the nose, but quite enjoyable if only for the incredible use of red-wine barrels.
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Cloudy caramel ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Fruity, malty, funky and acidic notes in the bouquet – cherries and caramel stand out. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Tart, but not quite sour. Fruity, but not in an overbearing manner. A tad funky. Tangy, fruity, fairly dry finish. Thanks to Beerlando for sharing this world class beer! smith4498 (3674) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2010

Bottle shared at Paul’s Thanksgiving tasting. Pours orange brown with a thin head. Funky bretty aroma, with some woody and cherry notes. Nice tart bretty flavor with some slightly sweet cherry notes, wood, and a light acidity. Tastey. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
750 ml courtesy of TheEpeeist. Bottle 93 of 378. Pours a murly ruby brown pour, well hazed and glowing edges. A decent bright whitish head that dies to a ring, laces small, spotty. Aromas are rich fruit punch, sour cherries and raspberries, touches of mellow sweet malts with lactic acid. Touches of vinegar, wet oak. Rich and sour. Initial is mellow modied, moderate sour cherries, light funk, touches of vinegaratte. Lactic acid, rich caramel and bready malts, touches of biscuits with lingering sour cherries, touches of lactic acid. Not too over the top, highly drinkable with enough vinegar and acidity to make you know it’s a sour, a damn good sour at that, but balanced enough that high acidity doesn’t get in the way. Bullfrog sours are hit and miss.. But this is a definite hit for them in my book.
