A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, this beer is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A complex and intriguing original. The mystery began with wild yeast spontaneously fermenting a rich treasure of malted barley and cherries. Unlined Oak casks breathe deep vanilla hues and chords of smoke into this sour brown ale. Our Master Brewer has forged a smooth garnet tapestry that defies description. Wander off the beaten path.

pushkinwow (2755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a light mahogany with a creamy beige head that ends up in a ring around the glass. Sour cherry and unripe plums skins, slightly smokey and oaky presence mixed in with some caramel malt, bit of tartness, raisin, moderate carbonation and body, as it dries out on the palate you get more old cherry and as Calvin described "vomit". Apart from that taste at the end pretty yummy.

Prufrockstar (2078) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle, with thanks to Mike. Clear ruby brown pour. Short lived brown head. Aroma reminds me of vanilla-spiked potpourri; some cherry (but strangely in an artificial cherry juice kind of way, which isnt what Im used to from New Glarus, even in their excellent, sweet fruit beers). Fruit leather, hints of smoke. Somewhat vegetal. Taste is moderately sweet with present but restrained tartness. Syrupy texture, medium+ body, soft carbonation. Overall: a rare miss.

Bottle shared thanks roger. Flanders red in all its glory. Cherry and or other dark fruit with some oak on the back end full sour on the nose. The flavor is amazing dark cherries dark fruit oaky wood lots of sour but not enough to pucker. Balanced so wonderfully. Could drink many of these.
