Sampled at Pauls tasting. Pours reddish pink and bubbly. Arouma is grapefruit. Taste is tart and acetic. Sweet fruits like fruit punch with extra acids added. A bit woody. Not bad.

Nice light pink color with a bubbly head that fades fast. Aroma is light and tart with soem cherry sourness. Taste is light again with some sour cherry. A bit bland but not bad. Drinkable, clean and crisp.

Murky amber. No head. Sour Fruit nose. One note sour and oak. I guess that is two notes. Medium body. High carbonation. Abrasive dry finish.

Poured into a snifter. Thanks to someone (I forget who) for this. 2009 vintage bottled on August 14th. Looks like GI carbonated the pooch on this one. Strong gusher (though nowhere near the worst Ive experienced) was handled with care over a sink and I only lost a small portion of the beer. 3.0 A: The appearance resulting from the gushing is a mess. All of the yeast and blackberry slurry mixed well throughout the whole bottle. Opaque amber brownish color. Frothy white head, which retains fairly well, had plenty of blackberry and yeast particulates throughout and especially on top, giving the appearance of a cappucino with a healthy dose of cinnamon sprinkles on top. The beer, like the head, has particulates throughout. 3.5 S: The nose is rather boring for a beer put through what this one has been. Equal parts brett funk and sourness, but neither are very strong. Lightly acetic, a bit more lactic acid, and a light berry component. If I hadnt known about the wine barrels, I probably would have attributed the light grape vinous component to the berries, but it sticks out with the a priori knowledge. Light woodiness with a touch of astringency. Overall, its a good aroma, but it doesnt have any balls to it. Far too subdued. 3.5 T: The taste suffers from the anemia of the nose. Its tasty just like the nose is pleasant, but no power at all. Theres a light tartness, but the acetic sourness is all but gone. Compared to the sourness, theres a decent amount of funk featuring a basement muskiness, leather, and wild apple. The tartness of the berries shows that they are there, but there isnt a lot of berry flavor. Woodiness and astringency are there again and in good proportions. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Aggressive not-quite-spritzy carbonation. Could be smoother, but thats mainly due to the overcarbonation. 3.5 D: Its an okay brew if theres nothing better around, but a bomber of this is a rather boring experience. The aromas and flavors are okay, just too weak to make this a truly enjoyable experience. The overcarbonation and the price didnt add anything positive either.

Tried at DLD courteous of a random beer fan. Poured light red-brown with a nice white head. Had a fruity aroma. The sour taste was pleasant, gave the beer a real good finish.

Bottle. Pours light amber/dark pink with a small white head which quickly fades. No retention/lace. Aroma of blackberries, tannins, oak, funk, barnyard, lemon. Taste is quite sour; lemon, funk, oak, blackberry. Palate is slick, average carbonation, intense sour finish. Good.

Bottle courtesy of fishingnet. Pours a hazy orange-pink color with thin white head. Aroma is slightly sour with notes of fresh berries, light brett, hints of ripe cherries, some light funk and hints of caramel and honey. Flavor is slightly sour with notes of vinegar, cherries, ripe fresh fruit, hints of sweetness. Generally medium body with a sour finish. Nice ale.

MacBoost (1816) - Penfield, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2014
2012 bottle, 22oz. Murky dark pink pour, little head. Aromas of wood and fruit. Taste is very tart and dry. Flavors of tart blackberry jam with some woody pie crusts. Nice. Wonder if it dried out in the bottle a bit or if it was brewed this dry. Very lactic, slightly funky. Very tart. I like this a lot.

2009 Bottle sampled at Noogfest High 5 thanks to unclejedi. Poured amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of tart fruits. More tart fruits in the flavor with a backing of light malts and a hint of spice. Medium body.

pour is a dark transparent ruby red with a beige tiny bubbled head. Nose is heavy tart berry, fair amount of dry wood, hints of lacto and vanilla, light Brett leather note. Taste is heavy sour dark berry, lightly lactic. Wood isnt there near as much as the nose. Body is lightly dry, a hint syrupy, rather puckering and highly carbonated. Not bad, pretty sour, strong berry note, not too much else.
