Kupferfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch säuerlich, reife Früchte, Holzfass. Geschmack sauer, leicht holzig, reife dunkle Früchte. HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bomber share thanks to Matt. Appearance: finger tan head, brownish amber color, light cloudy, no lace. Aroma: prune, earthy bitterness, leather, light oak. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, dry finish. Taste: soft malty start, light to medium tartness through finish. Overall, not my favorite sour, the balance is too heavy towards maltiness and not tart enough for me.

2008, Batch #10
Cherry brown with etched light tan foam. Smells like stilton cheese, oak, some pie cherry, really not taking much on the nose here personally. As it warms, it kinda reminds me of cherry jolly rancher smell. Flavor is lightly tart with rich acetic character, lightly sweet and a good bit of oak. Thin with light, ticklish carb and a dry finish. Overall the beer is really drinkable, as it warms, it is really inviting as a beverage, makes me wish I were sitting in a lush leather chair at fireside.

2010 bottle from Matt. Thanks!
A: Dark mahogany with a cascading creme head.
N: Oak, acetone, grape, dark cherry, vinegar, and raspbery. Very vinous.
T: Minor sourness with a lot of vinous hints. Nice sweetness here, too.
M: Light and nimble. Good carbonation and easy to drink.
O: A very interesting take on the style. Has a lot in common with wine. Tasty. DrewFace (969) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours a deep red colors with big off white head. Aroma is big on the sour and mild funkiness. Flavor is sour cherry, some vinegar notes, smooth and fairly mild. Not overly tart and sour but still nice....very tasty. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle... Poured reddish/amber with a mode are off-white head. Vinous, wine-like tones added depth and complexity. Wood-like characters with a lots of yeast spice ranging from musky funk to a mildly acidic sourness. Other fruits like stone fruit and cherries before a drying finish.
