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!. AirForceHops (7540) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2016
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.Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2016
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.
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. theswiftsa (109) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2016
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.

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, there’s lots of cherry, with lots of sour notes, with a good dash of oak. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. It’s rare that a sour beer thrills me, and this one doesn’t. Doesn’t really work for me on any level. Muggus69 (2591) - 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 it’s quite well balanced yet funky as hell. M_Sack (750) - 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.

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 I’ve read for any product. It’s too bad this is no longer listed here.

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