Had this at Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Tart acid, soft wood on the nose. Bright acid, tart with a light amount of acid initially. Warm with some funky musk, and long acid into the finish. Very tasty.

22oz bottle #1/230 shared by jtclockwork, thanks-pours a tan head that slowly foams over after opening and copper color. Aroma is vinuous/acidic, medium malt, tart/barn. Taste is vinuous, medium malt-caramel, medium fruit-raspberry, wood. Finish is acidic/vinegar, which didn’t work for me, but front and mid-palate are quite enjoyable.

alexsdad06 (10586) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Waxed bottle shared by jmborggren. Pours an opaque deep amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a nice tart fruity quality, oak, mild herbal notes and some toasted malt. The flavor has more tart fruits, a big woody component, some toasted malts, this was pretty drinkable, not a big sourness now but good.

Bottle, from b3shine (thanks Beau!), shared at RBAG 2014. Medium amber brown, spare off white head. Kriekish, unripened cherries, strong lactic sourness (very "American" in this respect). Very tasty.
