Bottle, as pictured. Dark pour, tan head. Surprising flavor, actually very deep with a little bit of roast malt flavor up front, I got some chocolate in it. Fades quickly into a tart brett funk. One of the smoother brett beers I’ve had. Lovely. Hermod (8779) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2015
375ml bottle @PBF X. 2014 batch 5. Thanks Jan for bringing this one! Tart, vinegary with green apples in aroma. Slight milky sourness, mild vinegary notes, citrusy, lemony tartness. Mouthdrying. Refreshing, really tasty. omhper (26213) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Dark brown, small head. Lemony cherry aroma. Acetic with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Vinegar, wood and blood. Puckering sour lemon juice, some hay and caramel. Vinegary finish. lefossoyeur (615) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours brown with a thin white head, fading quickly into nothing. Dark fruits and toasted aromas with hints of citrus. Thin body, sharp acidity, nutty flavors with a citrus finish. A bit unbalanced, still enjoyable dark sour. drowland (9197) - Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2015

Pours brown with low off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of spices, fruits. Taste is of fruits, citrus. Palate: Light body. Light carbonation. Overall: Nice sourness. Just a tad straight-forward. pushkinwow (2984) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
375ml bottle from Hill Farmstead, listed as 6.8%. Dark mahogany with a light tan head that completely fades. Light tannin, mix of lemon and lime rind, malty, acidic, some brett, sour plum and cherry, mild carbonation and moderate body, sour and dry on the finish. tom10101 (6341) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015

Appearance: Dark amber with a small ring of off-white foam and little to no lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, chocolatey notes, brettanomyces, moderate spiciness and red fruits.
Taste: Medium acidic presence, citrus, chocolatey notes, moderate spiciness, oak and roasted malts.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Citrusy finish.
Overall: Not the most cohesive mix and another strike for the the dark sour category (some examples are pretty good, but they are definitely a minority), but it’s not all bad. It’s rather tasty and quite drinkable for what it is. Still, Crooked Stave can do better.
Pours a dark brown with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of roasted, toasted grains. Taste is of roasted malt and not too tasty overall. Some light grapes, maybe? Moderately acidic. Body is medium and carbonation medium. Overall this was drinkable and kind of refreshing but this didn’t feel special at all. czar (9795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
pours hazy light brown, burnt orange, with a nice very light beige cap, some retention and lacing. minty citrus, gently roasted grains, red fruitiness - tart cranberries, pepper, dry molasses, few powdery chocolatey notes, light-medium acidity, spices. light carbonation, light body, tart spicy-citrusy medium long finish. interesting and tasty citrus barrel-aged variant.
