NikkTwist (3200) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Dark cherry pour. Mostly clear candy-apple color against candlelight. Fizzy/foamy off-white head. Not a lot of aroma. Pleasant sour with a lot of barrel tannins. Currant jelly. Strawberry-Rhubarb. Sweet and sour sauce. Leather. Wild blueberries. Dried leaves. Quite tart and very astringent. Great unusual sour!

Bottle. Poured a clear ruby color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, cherry and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

BeerBeforeH20 (129) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours a nice ruby/brown color with a lingering white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is dominated by sour fruit, not picking up any oak or malt aromas. Tatse, like the aroma, is strong with tart fruits, apples, cherries, and pear notes with a slightly oakish finish. Pretty good offering, nice sour funk here.

wlajwl (6750) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Aroma is fruit, malts, slight mustiness and a hint of blueberries. The flavor is malts, fruit, mild sweetness and a very long and tart blueberry finish. Normally don’t care for blueberry ales due to blandness, this one was actually pretty good.

shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Draft. Vinegar and berry malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet-tart vinegar, berry, and wheat malt flavor. Nice body and blending. Very good.

bytemesis (8250) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle - 2014 edition. Pours clear burgundy, quite beautiful actually, small tan head that dissipates quickly with some residual lacing. Aroma is oaky, vinous and fruity with tart cherry notes. Flavor is quite fruity up front, perhaps blueberry, oaky, starts lightly sweet but quickly dries out to a medium tartness. Finish is tart with light oaky astringency. Medium body. Nice beer, but I must say it is better before it warms up, oddly enough.

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - FEB 28, 2015
A mahogany body sports vibrant cranberry highlights gradiating to sunset amber at the edges beneath a short, tight light khaki head falling to a solid ring and a few dots of lace

Aromas and flavors of natural fleshy over-ripe fruit, plumb, blackberry, hints of dark cherry, citrus, solid tartness with added depth of oaky barn on a spritzy, juicy, oaky medium-light body creating solid sour-n-sweet residuals of the previously mentioned components, very solid

22oz bottle served at 45º into Orrefors Beer Taster

Emeister84 (2479) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2017 Sharp tart fruity aromas, sour apple, some pineapple, some floral notes. Very dark brown, almost black, beige head has decent retention. Dry, sour. Light bodied, pretty refreshing.

rjmc64 (36) - Deer Park, New York, USA - APR 4, 2015
Poured from 22oz. bottle, a dark amber with ruby highlights. Low off white head that fades quickly. Nose is that of apples, sour cherries, with some floral notes. Mouth feel is thick and oily. Taste is tart up front then smoothes out with some sweet grape notes.

HippieFee (425) - - MAY 24, 2015
Large Format - Dark color, slight reddish ting to it. Mild oak taste with a slight, not very overpowering, tart flavor to it. Tartness lingers around for a while.
