Quality sour. Pours bright red with little to no head, moderate carbonation. It’s tart and sour raspberry, with a puckering finish that’s very dry. Funky yet drinkable fruit sour.
Bottle from City Beer SF. Copper color, white head. Sour taste with cherry, wheat, tart, grass, red currant and earthy notes. Sour finish with cherry, wheat, tart, earthy notes and red currant. Excellent sour ale. Itzjerm (3124) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2017
A balanced tart sour and sweetness type of beer. Nose comes through as sour as well. Yet overall a very enjoyable beer. Body is enjoyable as well. Lots of carbonation as well. A nice frambrosise. Barrel does not come through however. smaynard6000 (1242) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2017
2013 bottle. Bright pinkish color with minimal carbonation. Aroma reminiscient of wine. Sour flavor with raspberry notes. Medium bodied with lingering sour finish. This is like a sour Framboise. p0urmeac0ld0ne (208) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - OCT 23, 2017
200th review! Very wild, very sharp, very perplexing! Been saving this for a while and opened it up after hearing that I was a successful candidate in a recent job opportunity, so I figured I’d celebrate. I have a limited knowledge of sours but I have enjoyed what I have tried in the past, however the initial taste on this, for me, is wayyy too sharp. Afterwards, it develops into something that is not too dissimilar to that of a fine wine, and the taste definitely continues to grow and unfold after the initial sip. However, that bite is too sharp, slowing my consumption to a snail pace. Two days later, I still have the bottle open but corked with one of those wine-keeper thingies (haha).

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Draft. It poured an pink amber color witha thin lace ring. It has a fruity aroma and taste with notes of raspberries and cherries. The taste is rather tart with a slight aftertaste.

This got the same score as the halos but for different reasons. The raspberries are far more evident here than the peaches in the others, but it also tastes just a bit too tart. Decent but probably not a repeat buy. pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Bottle Share: Absolutely Aaaaaaamazing! You could taste the wine barrels in the finish. Sour with fruits. Just the right amount. Not bad for the first major sell out :) wildheels (6) - - SEP 3, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 2013 vintage and still delicious: raspberry notes still present, but oak notes prevail in nose and pallate. Light sweetness from raspberries dance on the tongue and balance the tart and acidic backbone. mike5326 (1782) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Poured from a bottle. Clear rose color, no real head. Smells like an old foot. Medium body with a nice light tart flavor with a mild finish.

A sour brettanomyces aroma, a hazy caramel color with no head. Taste is sour brettanomyces not much else with a medium body and a sour finish.
