Bomber shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a brownish red with an off white head, the aroma is all berry, a little funk and sourness is in there but the berries really come through, the flavor has a nice amount of cherry and raspberry like notes on the front end with a really soft mouthfeel and finish, not overpowering sour at all, actually pretty nice.

bottle, berry brown color, berry forward aroma, medium oakiness. quite tart, blueberry, oak cuts slightly into berry tartness, far from a lip pucker but decent sour tartness. Enjoyable. Bought at Bruisin Ales, Asheville

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours ruby red with thin off white head. Great aroma of sweet tart cherries and blueberries, bit lactic creaminess, vanilla, oak. Taste presence tart and tangy berries, with known blueberries, lingering semi sweet tart berry, vanilla, oak. Lively mouthfeel. Hands down best New Holland beer I have had. Just lovely barrel touch, tart, nice palate, it has a lot going for it.

Bottle share thanks to Paul, has a dark reddish pour with a bit of head. Aroma of some barrel, bit of vinegar and some fruit. Taste was similar but a little lacking, too much vinegar for me.
Earlier Rating: 11/4/2012 Total Score: 3.7

Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate sour cherry, light vinegar, lemon, and oak. It pours a transparent reddish-orange with a one finger off-white/beige head that settles fairly quickly to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sour cherry, lemon, and light vinegar. The finish has light-moderate vanilla and some faint oak. Its medium bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was really tasty and Im glad I finally picked this up after assuming it was the same beer year after year since 2009.

Draft. This is one of the best tasting sours I've had. Tastes if some chocolate candy at first than finishes nice and tart. Lovely beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours to a clear reddish body with a creamy off white head and nice lacing. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is sour vinegar and vanilla. Kind of like a rodenbach or duchess. Dry wood. Flavor is vinegar and sour. Some deep wood character to it too. Creamy up front finishes dry and slick. Enough tartness, this is very much a Flemish red.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle from Maris. Pours clear brown with a small tan film on top. Looks pretty dead in the glass. The aroma has a big woodiness, vanilla, vinegar, tart cherries. The taste has a big vinegar flavor followed by a lot of wood from the barrel. There is a sour apple and grape flavor. Very good!
