phaleslu (9709) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle shared by djd07 at the hotel lobby fart share. Thanks again, DJ! Pours a cloudy ruby color with a small white head that settles into a ring. Notes of vanilla, oak, grapes, florals, wild berries, spice, and wheat. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, floral mouthfeel. Another solid one.

BuckeyeBoy (6547) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2016

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2016
bottle. Pours clear ruby red, with nearly no head. Incredibly subtle aroma of freshly squeezed grapes, pinot noir alike character from north of Burgundy / south of Alsace, clean, cherries, some green notes from "raffles". Light body, lightly sour but loads of tannin tartness coming from the grapes. This is going very close to a petnat ("ptillant naturel") wine, sublte and great in its simplicity. This is what real "sour ales" (as in not lambics) should be about rather than those overly sour beers.

Ferris (13561) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle - Vinous and cherry notes. Deep purple red with a decent white head. Sweet grape, light funk and dry chalky notes.

cobaink2 (531) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle from the masonry. Pours with a cherry wine like hue. Pretty interesting because you get tannins of grapes and a bit of the funk from the Brett. Little bit of orange juice in there as well. Lots of things going on there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Hotel Bottle Share. Thanks to djd07. Wild and funky nose of grape, apples. Lovely deep crimson color. Great dusty wild yeast funk, lovely Tempranillo grape flavor. Very nice.

Marheb (5290) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2016
(En ft la brasserie): Raisins juteux, framboises, prunes, dlicats tannins et une scheresse dlicate dans ce qui se boit comme un vin arien avec son alcool bien camoufle. Sublime.
