Bottle shared at the 5k/7k/11k. Very generous share. Aroma of cherry, iron, and slight cheese. Pours hazy deep red with nice lacing. Taste is sour cherries, sweet tart candy, and a big dry yeast finish. Tart acidic mouthfeel some sweet caramel. Great flanders red. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2014
25.4 oz bottle. Deep burgundy brown with a thin ring of froth. Nose is sour red grapes, musty wood, toffee and black cherry. Slick medium body with a soft sparkle. Taste is apricot jam, oak and champagne vinegar finishing with strawberry lemonade. Still retains that lovely hint of sweet fruit that characterizes Bullfrog’s best work.

Aroma : Vinous with some oak. Medium sourness. Quite woody.
Taste : Medium sourness, vinous and a bit acidic. Nice sourness while not very powerful.
Overall : Nice brew but nothing really remarkable about it. Nice sour beer. Thanks for sharing this rare one with us Ryan !
Bottle shared at Glouglouburps after Mondial tasting 2010. Bottle thanks to Rciesla for sharing! Pours a hazy deep brown with a thinning film of a head. Aroma is caramel sweet, light burnt toffee, crystal malts, fruity light cherry and rasp mix, pedio cherry pie and mineral kick with some medium but not overpowery aceto cider vinegar which was actually nice- as it warms some oak comes through a bit. Flavor has more oaky character, but still a decent amount of malt leftover- still mostly fresh overall some cherry pie, pitty, flemish sour like for the most part, some modest acetic acid and some slight paint thinner as it warms a bit. Decent modest sour finish and overall fairly drinkable. Light carbonation and yeastiness suggests the yeast is still working- may take another year or 2 to get better.

Bottle at Beerwarming Party. Pours a cloudy, dark maroon with a light, filmy head. Lots of funk and leather in the aroma with some tart strawberry. Flavor is sweet, tart, fruity, lightly acidic with some dirt. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sour, light, dry and clean. Interesting and pretty good.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 Thank you Tom L. The aroma of a sweet Flemish sour ale. The color is bright brown amber with a creamy head. The flavors of a wild Flemish sour settles with light berry notes. BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Courtesy of ericandersnavy(?). Poured a hazy, light brown body that was still. Aromas of sour apples, cherries, oaky, tart/sweet (opposite of sweet tarts), red wine and overall, effin’ great!! Flavor is tart, oaky, ash, lightly acid and not acetic at all. Think to medium mouthfeel. I’ll seek this one out in a much larger format. dmac (6588) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Bottle shared at Paul’s Thanksgiving weekend bash. Poured an ugly muddy brown body with a small foamy light beige head. Aroma was very nice with super sour tartness followed up with wood notes, sour cherry and bitter green apples followed up by more wet wood and even a hint of chocolate. Flavor is sour but not as sour as the aroma, notes of rotting lemons, citrus rinds and pulp, wood along with some bad chcocolate. The body is a little thin but what the hell this one is aged for 22 months before release. Very solid aroma and ncie flavor but the aroma is just soo much better then the aroma. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Huge thanks to Todd for popping this one at the BASC tasting! Brown pour with underlining garnet hues. Aroma is cherries, acetone and lacto. Flavor is full of oaky tannins, dark fruit and vinegar. Dry finish. Nice and tart but far from being overly sour. Refreshing in the summer humidity
