Wale weekend in Vermont- this bottle courtesy of Gn0sis.
Pours a dark red brown color with a medium slightly brown head. Smell is tart with dark berries- blackberry, rasp, blueb. Taste is rich with dark berries, pretty sour kick. mouthfeel is sour and dry/ tannic overall. no sweetness. overall this is a good sour. reminds me of captain lawrence barrel select.

[22oz bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Pours amber brown with a large, fast dispersing white head. Extremely carbonated. Massively sour aromas – balsamic vinegar, gooseberries, pickled onions. Puckeringly sharp mouthfeel – one for the sour fans only I think. Just too much for me – I like the sour fruit notes on the taste, but not the sour vinegar ones  Bullit (4801) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bottled @ tasting cgarvieuk. Hazy dark orange colour, tan head. Aroma is sour, bit of vanilla?, fruity and yeasty. Flavour is sour fruits, yeasty and malty and a bit of candy. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - JAN 29, 2011

thanks to thirdeye11 for securing the bottle. poured murky brown with an off white head. aroma was oak, funky, cherry, and raspberry. flavor was pretty much the same as the nose with a light body and fizzy carbonation. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2011
Bottled. Thanks to Marsiblursi
Dark brown colour with bubbly pale brown head. Dried fruits, higher alcohols in aroma, along with oaky vanilla and burnt sugar. Sweet meets sour in flavour, there is oaky vanilla, vague coffee, caramel. Behind the sour, lightish mouthfeel a heavy maltiness can be sensed in the background. Juicy, acidic mouthfeel, bit astringent but still rounded. Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2011
(Bottle) Pours a beautiful deep mahogany reddish brown with a small nougat coloured head. The aroma is super complex with notes of dark yummy caramel, creamy cookies, dark cherries, apples, subtle dried fruits - plums, figs and raisins, over ripe mango, buttery, vanilla-ish oak, white peppery/nutmeg/cardamom spices, sour lacto, light cheese, gun powder, soft cocoa, and coffee candy. The fat malty character plays well with sourish aroma profile. Everything is well integrated on the nose. The only downside is a tiny medical note. The flavour is dry, near heavily acidic and light bitter. Cherries, heavy citric, light dried fruits, light spices and tiny earth. The mouthfeel tart but soft and round at the same time from the robust AS malt. Light to medium carbonated. Tart finish with citrus and unripe apples. Medium (to full) bodied. Fantastic. kbutler1 (1382) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a murky cider color, extremely hazy, with a light tan head that collars around the glass. The aroma is interesting with notes of sour tart fruit, woodiness, and an underlying acetic flavor. Light mouthfeel with surprisingly good carbonation. The taste is pretty interesting as well with lots of barrel flavors, red wine characteristics (dryness and red wine flavor), some bitterness. Starts off with some sweet tartness and then moves into the barrel, wine, and funk flavors. All of this is blended with a fairly mild sour taste with a dose of funkiness. The alcohol isn’t really apparent. There are so many flavors going on in this! Pretty easy drinking.
Overall, this is a very complex beer with so much going on, in a good way. HonusWagner (2248) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Looks about as unpleasant as a beer can look; muddy, murky, a bit like sewage. Nose is low on tartness, which is a nice change of pace, and the flavors are similar. A good blend of rich malty caramel, slight woodiness, delicately sour cherries, and a bit of brown sugar. This was probably my favorite Veritas (other than 4).
