This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
Batch #149, bottled 10/10/06, courtesy of Sara (not sure what her name is on RB). Dark brown with rich tan foam, very nice retention, especially for the style. Nose is very solventy, lots of nail polish remover, some cherry pie notes and a little oak also. Very tough to get by aroma, got better as it warmed, but sharp when it was first poured. Lots of oak on the flavor, some sharp acidity for a brief moment mid palate and finishes with some cherry pie and slight anise note. Very full bodied.

mikeyo1 (792) - Linkping, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2017
Bottle @ home, cellared 2,5 years. Pours a dark ruby red color and a minimal head. Aroma of ripe dark fruits, acetone, cherries, oak, caramel. Taste is tart, quite acidic with some acetone. Brettanomyces, vanilla, oak, cherries, some sweet caramel, raisins and ripe red fruits. Finish is very dry with lingering oak, red grape tannins and cherry. Very nice.

Eructoblaster (4101) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with low carbonation and a fading, off-white bubbly head. Complex, robust, malty/hoppy aroma with oaky, fruity, and spicy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp sour taste carries oaky, brett, and wild berries notes. Ends with a long sour finish. Well done.

JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Brown colors with hint of ruby and purple when held to the light. Diminished tan head. Malt and rich dark fruit in the aromas. Hints of alcohol and lacquer throw things off slightly. Initial paint thinner noted in the front. Light fruit and oak slide in later, but it still has the initial shock of sucking on a siphon tube and catching some crap in the mouth. Some cherry and oak flavor come in late. Too much distraction from the early, crude alcohols. 4/10

BlazerT (988) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Very deep brown/reddish with thin, almost none, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is intense acetic, vinous with fruits - cherries notes. The unpleasant acetic notes are well hidden by vinous character and lightly malty profile. Taste is moderatly sour and dry. The sourness is quite noticable from the beginning in the end the intensity makes it slightly warming. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, finish is dry and sour.
