GABF 2008. Amber pour with tan head. Aroma is wine, dusty cherries and some apples. Flavor is tart cherries, vinegar and slight sourness, but less than what I was expecting. pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle 2008. Pours out a cloudy slightly reddish tinged brown with a small lacing off white head. Aroma is vinous with some wood, cherries and some funky yeast notes. Taste is complex with a nice sourness, cherries, earthy notes and a nice brett tartness, slight alcohol in there, very smooth for 9%. Well done. bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - MAR 18, 2009

’08 bomber shows ruddy brown color with blonde halo. From medium bodied malty base comes raisin paste, tart cherry and oak sour without alcohol warmth or hop bitterness. ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2009

Bomber. Pours dark orange, hazy with a nice full white head. Nose is amazing: citrus, tartness, funk, acid, bretty-full of flavor. Taste is very tart and tangy, bitter and dry, a bit sweet with some grapefruit. Brett is here but only adds, does not dominate. Full, rich, evervescent body. As good as many Russian River sours. Well done. Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2009
poured reddish, not too thick. An aroma of spit and bacteria. Initially, the sourness well controlled by malt. AVerage mouthfeel. Drinkable over a meal, tastes somewhat of a wild ale that builds up in the mouth over repeated sips.Intersting. BuckeyeBoy (7669) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Double wax dip Bottle (what a pain) Pours out a murky amber with red highs topped with a small ring tan head. Aroma was of berrie, sweetness and some of the 9%. Tast was more of the berrie but lots of bitterness at the end like grapefruit peel. A little tart. Not to bad. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle. Body-Dark iced tea with a thick ring of bubbles. Nose-sour, woody, light funk, cherry, toothpicks. Taste-brown ale, little tart, dry, sharp bite on the back end that isn’t from the funk, sour cherries, dry wood, lots of tannins, straw, hay. A very nice mild sour. haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Brown with dissipating tan head. Aroma is of tart cherries, caramel. Flavor is the same plus some tart apple. Acidic, tart, slightly bitter with some sweetness at the end. The alcohol is well hidden. Very good, but could be more balanced. I would like a bit more malt flavor.
