Cloudy orange pour with a tall white head. Initial aroma is pleasant. Tart lemon, green apple, and citric tartness. Some floral notes, a bit of oak, wine, and grass. The flavor has a pronounced elderflower character, sour lemon and green apple, and wine. Charred oak, pronounced smoke, and a hint of bandaid after the initial tartness of the flavor.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle from May ’12 batch. Pours a clear (first glass anyway) rose with a good soapy pink partially lasting head with big bubbles. The aroma is very floral, sharp acidic, and Brett funk. The flavor is sour fruit sweat with a moderately sharp cheese middle and yeasty end. The body is very light with only a bit of yeast tickle and sour pucker. This is a very unique and nice treat.

Thanks boamr

Appearance: Pours a cloudy peachy rose color, with quickly subsided head action.

Aroma: Rose porpuri, ripe berry and spicy funk.

Taste: Earthy bitterness, floral, tannic. Finishes funky and tart.

Mouthful: A tad chalky, full bodied, modest carbonation.

Overall: Fun to try, but I prefer no fruit or fruit sours over botanicals.

dagimp (978) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2013
375 ml bottle purchased at the brewery. Brewed on 5-2012. Pours a very unique pink. First I've seen this color in a beer. Great winey aroma with grapes, sour apples and tart cherries. About an inch or two of fizzy head. Mouthfeel is very fizzy, annoyingly so. Makes me burp, ewwwwwwww! Taste is very muted. Not too sour, not too tart. Decent blend of rosé water, flower petals and lemon. Tea is present too. Kind of like a baby sour in that its easily approachable. Basically, it's the Lindemans of sours but not as sweet. Not worth the $15 I paid for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (5743) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle (375 ml). Clear orange/amber with reddish reflects and a small white head. Aroma if really floral (hibiscus, roses) and fruity (citrus, red fruits) along with some spicy/peppery notes. Taste is moderately sour with, again, a lot of floral notes along with oak. Mouthfeel is moderately dry. Good carbonation. Good tart and refreshing beer!
