COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wood aged Pale Quadruppel. Imagine a blend of Scaldis and Cantillon Pure Kriek. Forget it, there is nothing like it (yet). Vlad is shocking to your sour beer senses and taste buds, which do not understand that such a balanced delicate sour beer can be so drinkable and appeal to so many people while being extreme. But dont forget, it will still open a can of 10.6% whoop-ass on your ass after all the pomp & circumstance of what an amazing beer it is subsides.

Pour is very low carbonation and a brown slightly murky appearance. Aroma is great with grapes, plums, vanilla, light funkyness, and rich cherries. Taste is medium tart with little funk and a very interesting sweetness that is not cloying or unwelcomed. Good stuff again.

This one has been sitting around much to long, tonight it must be drunk. The cork broke and I had to resort to the corkscrew, the cork was really dry. Pours a deep amber bordering on copper with a small tightly bubbled white head that shows moderate retention. Smells of tart and lactic as soon as I wrangle the stopper out of the bottle. Tart cherries, lemon, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, lots of wonderful aromas waft out of my glass. Taste is tart with a hint of sugary sweetness. Up front I get a hint of brown sugary type sweetness followed by a heaping helping of tartness. Lemons and tart cherries with a hint of acid followed by some vanilla and oak and maybe a hint of ash in the finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart kind of mouthfeel. Wow this is a beautiful beer! Its bigger in body than most American sours, but its base is also a Quad. I really enjoyed this, I wish I had more.

pours a copper transparent color with tight white head. The nose is lightly vegital and medicinal with a strong fruit and barrel component. The flavor is the same with a light bitterness and a lighter body and strong carbonation.

2009 out of the bottle. Pours a deep orange with with white head. Nice sour aroma with hint of white peach. Sour taste with well structured backbone. Astringent finish.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2012
25.4 oz bottle. Hazed golden brown with edgy froth. Nose is dried apricot, golden raisin, old wood, sour mash and plastic. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is bourbon, tangerine peel, caramel and leather. Amazing how well all the various elements blend into the whole.

decaturstevo (5947) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Orange pour with foamy white head and lace. Bread, clove and sourness on aroma. Flavor is medium acid sour, brett, with a surprising sweet finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A very strange nice beer.

Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2008 2010...pours clear from the top of the bottle, cloudy from the bottom and overall amber darer honey in color with a small off white head. The aroma is pure sour yeast in the nose with light tropical fruit notes, good. The flavor of a medium well bodied pure sour ale with a juicy yet dry ending. There are sweet and sour notes on a cleaner, not so thick body.

Pours deep orange and hazy. head is small and lasting. Nose is very lactic, sweet malts, light acetic acid notes, sweet malts, vanilla caramel. Flavor is oddly sweet Malta and vanilla but comes through mildly sour and tart. Medium body. this isnt. ad but I dont really prefer the sweet vanilla bourbon character is a sour. glad to try.
