Bottle shared by Jimmie. Poured a deepm dark blackish/brown with a smaller light beige head. Aroma is earthy with vinegar sourness along with some rotting dark fruit. Medium bodied with softer carbonation and a lingering sour aftertaste. Flavor is better then the aroma with loads of sourness, dark fruit and vinegar, along with a hint of red wine and lots of earthiness. Solid sour again from the Captain.
On tap at The Bier Garden, Asheville. Reddish, with islands of foam. Smells, as one might expect, like wine, oak, and a touch of cherry. Taste is more fruit forward, then wine and followed up oak. Very tasty. weihenweizen (4044) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2017

Tasted on 1/27/13 from a capped 375mL bottle. Pours completely opaque black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is dark and milk chocolate, coffee, and just a touch of some sour funk underlying. The flavor is more sour vinegar and vinous up front with all of the milk and dark chocolate and coffee from the nose. Sour up front, stout on the back. The body is medium with average carbonation, plenty of tannin, and a long sour and roasted finish. vyvvy (6639) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has light tartness, caramel and berries. It has a medium body that is smooth and has some grainy light carbonation. It begins with lots of dark berries, smooth roast, richness and sharp citric acidity. The finish is crisp for a dark 10% beer. Yet another excellent beer in the memorable tasting.
