Delicious, sour grape/apple aroma. Bright, clear amber colored pour with very little head. Flavors of tart green apple, raspberry, and grape tannin. Very light palate with a medium tart/tannic finish. Very nice! FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012

Very lucky to have snagged a bottle of this. It seems like it’s even more evasive than Lolita in the Twin Cities area. Bottled 1/26/12 - bottle # 1247. Poured from 22oz bottle to snifter:
Pours a glowing, beautiful pinkish golden pear. A short-lived, fizzy off white cap fades off to a thin dollop of a head. Slow, pinpoint beading. What a nice looking beer.
The nose is just as bright - sour berries, aggressive tart character, yeast, a bit of rhubarb, white grapes, a touch of booze far and away.
Exceedingly complex on the tongue. Tart, drying fruits... some bright grape notes, faded hop character, a touch of sour peaks before a very dry finish.
I think I prefer this one to the Lolita. A bit more balance and drinkability. Really a delicious beer I think.
Bottle. Dark tan/reddish pour a little carbonation and a very sour aroma of fruity blackberries and wine. Flavor is also very tart berries, woody with a dry sour finish. Definitely good, but not $20/bottle good. drfabulous (8677) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 29, 2012
22 ounce from Shenanigans. Pink red color. Nice carbonated pour. Cherry. Red wine. Just the right spritzy sour wine flavors coming off. Some berry. Really nice. Shagtastic (4) - Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2012 does not count
What a fantastic beer. I love the full flavor from the blackberry. This is such an easy beer to drink and I find myself fighting not to take this bomber down so fast.

2012 Bottle pours dark golden/amber with a small white head that does not stay long. Aromas are sour, lactic, funky and fruity. Tastes are woody, vinous, tart, funky, fruity notes. Lots going on, and all of it is delicious. Wish this was not so limited, as it is an amazing sour beer. BelgianBeerGal (4174) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Bottled at Flossmoor during pre-DLD festivities. Nice kick of tartness and a touch of sour from the berries. I really didn’t get any wine notes from the barrel but that was fine with me; I liked the wild fruitiness. thomas15 (694) - Alabama, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Super beautiful blend of wood tart berry and red wine on the aroma. Pours with small quick to disappear. Lightly pink tinged white head on a rose colored beer that sit murky without bubbles. Tart bordering on lightly sour, with a bright berry tartness interspersed amongst driving sour coupled with some red wine dryness and wood that grips your palate more as you get deeper into the bottle. 2012 bottle bottled 1 26. alpar (160) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours a deep purple color. Has a low level of carb and smells awesome. Grapes and funk. Definitely some oak notes as well. Taste is outstanding, sour and funky. The barrel comes out as it warms an compliments the crisp sourness well. This is my favorite of the sisters, but Madame Rose is a close second. AndySnow (8163) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle @ Monk’s Sveavägen. Light amber colour with a small head. Light fruity aroma. Flavour is fruity with a bit of malt.
