Tasted from a 22oz bomber bottle purchased at Half Acre. Pours hazy, opaque dark brown-red with an average tan head that slowly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is lightly sour with tart fruit, sweet caramel malt, bread, and some dusty banana yeast. The flavor is sweet caramel malt, tart fruit, slightly sour citrus, with hints of brown sugar and banana yeast. The body is full and oily with average carbonation and a long tart fruit finish with a hint of citrus. burg326 (5607) - Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2012
22 ounce bottle, poured a dark reddish brown color, aromas of cherries, currants, light chocolate, some light wet wood, and light yeast. Flavors follow suit, a nice tart cherry followed by some currants. I was afraid I might have sat on this one too long, after reading some of the reviews, however this was a pretty good beer overall. bradner (91) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2011
22 oz bottle poured into a Russian River tulip.
AROMA: Currants, vanilla, black cherry, and malt.
APPEARANCE: Pours dark brown with a red hue, light brown head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving behind a ring around the grass with a little skim.
TASTE: A lot like the smell, currants, black cherries, vanilla, some sweet malt taste. Some tartness in the finish along with currant and cherries.
PALATE: Light bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Lingering finish that is slightly tart.
OVERALL: Great collaboration. I’m glad I purchased a couple of these. Too bad it was a small batch brew! SudsMcDuff (8494) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2011

22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Jonah. Very carbonated. A big booming stemmy, seedy, round dark fruit aroma. Fig newtons, fruited balsamic vinegar, and cooked currants. Wonderful cooked and rendered berry flavor. A nicely complex range of sugar flavors. The currants stand out and really pop. The alcohol is a bit too warming, throwing the balance off a little bit, but I enjoy the range of flavors this throws off.

Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a deep murky brown copper color with a large white head. Huge very sweet fruit and malt. The flavor is brown malts, almost pushing toward a Flanders red, some sour cherry, yeasty, Belgian esters. Very good. I really enjoyed this. hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Bomberpicked up from the brewery. Poured a murky brownish color with ruby red foam that quickly dissapates. Aroma of cherry, oak,vanilla and has a unique belgain yeast smell to it. This is a unique brew which is tricky to catagorize its style, can go into a brown or belgian or fruit or even a sour but I guess it leans more towrds the Fruit style. Taste is a bit on the sour side but mostly tart. Hints of vanilla oak and strong cherry current finish. Taste lingers for a while. Oveall a nice unique treat, glad to have tried it. Don’t know how this will age, I kinda like the cherry taste but could morph into a more mellow tart brew.
