Pours hazy reddish brown with a small light tan head. The aroma has cream, some fruitiness, earthy yeast, caramel and toffee. It has a medium / full body that’s a bit rich then has some huskiness and light carbonation. The flavor starts out with spice, plums, caramel, berries and an overall watery aspect to everything. The finish has a tinny sourness, metallic aspects and earthiness. This is okay, but not sure what style it’s trying to be. Sure doesn’t taste like the description on the bottle. gramity (1668) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Amber pour with a small head. Slightly sour nose, hits pretty flat and watery on the palate. Kind of a poorly executed sour. madvike (3264) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle - Pours copper amber with a thin foamy tan head. Nose is baking spice, dry bready malt, and not really any fruit. Taste is lots of baking spice, a touch of cherry, and some lightly sour bready malt. No tartness to speak of. High carbonation and a little slick. Pretty bad.

Appearance: Pours a dark amber with no head. Not on the pour or after a gentle swirl around the glass.scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Aroma: Cocoa powder, sweet cherry, Mountain Berry Kool-Aid.
Taste: Milk chocolate covered strawberry and a touch of oak. Faintly tart from that strawberry note, and I’m being generous. No signs of beer bugs, tartness or sourness.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with average carbonation.
Overall: I was looking forward to a puckering adventure, and was disappointed This beer is not sour or tart in the least, which made me sad. With all that said, the beer in my glass was tasty, and there is a chance this beer blossoms into what was advertised.
25.4 ounce bottle. Pours a golden amber with a thin light tan head. Taste is of fruit, yeast, malt, spice, caramel and some hops. Similar, but cleaner aroma. Has a decent, sticky body. The finish is sour, a bit warming and of spice. Improves a bit as it warms, more sourness, fruit and spice comes through. Not bad.

22 oz bomber. Red with minimal white head. Yeasty estery aroma and flavor. Medium body with soft carbonation. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2013
On draught at the brewery. Arrived a clear red with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left no lace. Pleasant aroma of malt with raisin and honey. The flavor is malt and mild fruity Belgian yeast. Nice caramel silkiness to the mouthfeel. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

2013 bottle at Octobachi, Charleston. It pours cloudy red-brown with a small beige head. The nose is red berry, tanginess, mild vinegar, sweet red grape, jam and sour wood. The taste is smooth, dark fruit, dried berry, faint sourness, damp wood, brown sugar and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps more on the sweet side than sour.... Tasted fine with spicy food, but on its on so-so. cards04 (2793) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Nice reddish brown pour. Sour cherries and oak on th nose. Some dark fruit too. A bit watery, but not bad. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2013
750 ml bottle with a mean-ass ugly-looking bear on the label. Bottled on 4/1/13; a little over three months old. Pours cloudy brown to burnt orange with a collapsing beige head; falls into a ring of big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of vinegar, Brett, clove, wood. Smells really nice; I’m surprised at the low scores for this. Tastes good, too. Taste is lightly sweet and sour (4/10 on a sour scale). Along with the yeast and bacteria flavors, I get caramel, dark fruit. Body is medium, texture a little watery. Although I prefer my sours much more sour than this, it’s not too bad. It is thirst-quenching, as the label denotes.
