UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Thanks to whomever sent this my way! Nice dark brown pour, soapy head and carbonation. Oud bruin nose with modest wet oak. Mouthfeel is light and fairly acetic. Some interesting accents in this one, black pepper and mild chocolate in addition to the tart base. Red wine, dark notes. Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2013
poured deep brown with minimal head. smell and flavor of sour malt, lemon peel, cabernet sauvignon, and wine barrel. Nose had a hint of instant hot chocolate powder. Not my favorite by freetail, wouldnt seek this one out again brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Dark and barrely; dates and other dark fruits blend with a strong port wine kick. Healthy amount of sourness before finishing oaky and dry. Another tasty sour from Freetail. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2013
murky amber pour, thinnest cream ring head. Nose is stinging acetic with manure, wet earth, and mushroom. Flavor is old and burnt, earthy and musty across the mid, sweetness throughout especially finish, light caramel and more green sourness. Sticky, grainy body. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
