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. Ungstrup (38423) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, wood, caramel, and lacto. The flavor is acidic with notes of brettanomyces, malt, wood, caramel, and lacto, leading to a tart finish. b3shine (9150) - Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 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. drowland (9078) - Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2013
During RBWG 2013. Bottle via b3shine, I believe. Thanks, Breau! Amber pour with a nice khaki head. Tart, funky aroma with berries, sour lemon juice, and bits of wood. Sour flavor, lemons and berries, with some funk and wood. Not bad! j12601 (13123) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2013
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.

My Bottom Line:jbruner (5289) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Sour cherries, barnyard and red vinegar coincide in this dry and tart creation.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy red.
-Carbonation feels natural, which helps the flavor profile greatly.
-The acetic finish may be a tad too much for some, but I like it.
-The mouthfeel is soft, which helps drinkability greatly.
Pours a deep reddish brown from the bottle with bubbly khaki head that dissipates quickly to leave light lace. Aroma of big lactic acidity, mild vanilla barrel notes, and a hint of funk. Taste has dark fruit on the front, big lactic acidity in the middle, then ends with a hint of vanilla sweetness and mild fruity funk. A bit heavy on the sour, but I guess that is typically American, and that’s the name. SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2009
I never thought there was much chance of finding this style at a local brew fest. Surprise!
Pours slightly hazy, red tinged dark brown with a soapy white head.
Tart, fruity aroma.
Nice tartness with just enough underlying sweetness to balance.
Leaves the palate clean and tingling. TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draft at WBF Durham. Best of the festival, IMHO. Multiple samples. We lived at the end of the tent where this was for 30 minutes, easy, drinking this stuff. Maroon bodied. Aroma is sour fruit, wet wood, and light vinegar. Taste is sour cherries, cherry skins, lemon juice, wet oak, and cat urine notes. Mild sweetness in the back. Body si tart and acidic while being light -medium overall. No real carbonation to speak of though it wasn’t really flat. Ends with more sour cherries, light lemon, wet wood, cat urine and berries. Very nice stuff! Dunt (321) - Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle provided by Matt, poured into a Portsmouth tulip. A hazy dark brown in color with minimal head. There is a moderate amount of sediment on the bottom of my tulip. Nose is incredibly sour, strong vinegar, oak, and some non-descript fruit. Puckeringly sour, a lot of vinegar and oak again. Mouthfeel is acidic, has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. A lot better than I expected. A lot more sour than expected, it was real nice.
