Just NO!, very watery diluted flavour of a sour, the colour is very misleading, i poured it dark plumy with nice sour nose but the drinking did not deliver at all, the brewer should be hanged from his balls upside down!.

Bottle purchased at 7- Eleven, Kitter, ME. Flat black in color, low carbonation, no head or lace but a little oily films after the sip. Aroma is musty oak, blackberry jam, and acetone.

The one problem I have with any sour/ wild ale is vinegar. This has a mild vinegar undertone that really downgrades my enjoyment. The other flavors of sour Cherry, blackberry, and funky oak are ok. The carbonation is very low (nearly flat) with a oily slick feel. Not really my thing.

Bulk_Carrier (4472) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a black color with a quickly dissipating white to off white foamy head quickly dissipating into barely anything. The smell starts off with a sweet to sour cherries, subtle plums and then some dried milk chocolate. The flavor brings all previously mentioned flavors together with a sweet dry sour aftertaste and smooth sour finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sticky sour to sweet feel hitting my tongue. Overall, different for an American Wild ale with the chocolate in it. I think I could come back to this.

Pours a deep black with a thin offwhite head. Nose is tart cherries and black currents with a whiff of yoghurt. Taste is quite tart upfront with cherry notes and dark toasted Malts coming through before a sharp sour finish. Mouth feel quite thin with low carbonation. Solid beer but not amazing.

Bottle- Pour brown with a reddish tinge. Aroma has a lot going on frut, oak, mild tart. Taste is fruity iff the bat cherry up front then more berries into the finish. Smooth palate.

Maris (1438) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 15/5/2016 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a dark, dark red/brown with a smallish head. Has a quite a tart cherry aroma. Flavour wise, theres lots of cherry, with lots of sour notes, with a good dash of oak. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Its rare that a sour beer thrills me, and this one doesnt. Doesnt really work for me on any level.

Muggus69 (2269) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2016
330mL bottle from Slowbeer. Very deep slightly ruby coloured thing, off-white ring persists. Vinous nose - black fruits - blackcurrant, black plum skin, prune, blueberry; somewhat Malbec-like. Touch of funky yoghurt & horse as it warms. Dry sort of a body, once again vinous, mild acidity, slightly acetic, slightly tannic, slightly ropey, slightly carbonated. A curious amalgam of flavours on the body - black plum skin, charred wood, black pepper, natural yoghurt, balsamic, horse blanket, nuts & toast, blackberry, leafy ropey Pedio character lingers with some coarse tannin. Was actually expecting something a bit more sour - considering its constituents - but its quite well balanced yet funky as hell.

M_Sack (652) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Black with brown tinge, no head or lacing. Complex aromas of lemon juice, Brett, oak, roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Medium level of lemon juice sourness, Brett, oak, leading to some cherry sweetness, a relatively light middle and a roasted malt and coffee tinged finish. Best cold as it becomes a bit boozy when it comes to room temp. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ANZUShophunter (381) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2015
From bottle, pours red, funky in both aroma and taste and has a lot going on. A bit of cherry in there with the tartness and wine-like qualities. I bought this out of interest after reading one of the funniest commercial descriptions Ive read for any product. Its too bad this is no longer listed here. Fears of a primate uprising?

Pungent and black as night on the pour. Cherries do come through, but alas not so much to dissuade a rooster with boobs.
