750 ml bottle from JCB- thanks again, J! Bottle 2/230. Bottled 12/2010, released 3/15/11. Pours a hazy brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of tart cherries, balsamic vinegar, oaky funk, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and plum. Flavor is more sour and not as sweet, though the caramel and vanilla and brown sugar are there. Tart fruits, oak, yogurt, vinegar. Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, and a tart, funky mouthfeel. Really good sour. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2012

2015. Pretty solid. Complex and tart. Cherry oak and good sourness. Medium on the sour. Almost like a Flemish red. Pleasantly surprised. MeadMe (1680) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Thanks to the NC boys for letting me try this one at pre-sex.
A: Pours an amber like shade of brown with a small off white head.
S: Nice light sour aromas. Tart cherry, vinegar, oak, and a dash of crushed sweet tarts.
T: Lightly sour. Tart cherries, lemon zest, and mild vinegar. The oak is there in a mild sort of way as well. Nothing to bold here, nice light flavors that tend to meld really well.
M: On the lighter side of medium, nice light carbonation to carry the flavors.
D: One I would love to try again. Great little beer from a brewery I had never even heard of. douglas88 (9572) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours a deep red/brown color with a medium tan head. The nose is rich sour wood and cherries. The flavor is rich and robust but drinkable; sweet vanilla and wood, some intense sourness, raw like a unblended lambic, some fruit especially sour cherries. Very nice. Akin to a old bruin and very drinkable. Ungstrup (38248) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2012

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a semi-transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells solid; Flanders and funk. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a good mouthfeel. I dig this beer.
