Grazie a Caterina per questa rarità! Rispetto alla Sour questa è più complessa, peccato per una ossidazione eccessiva che la rovina un po Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle at phillybeerscene tasting. Aroma is tart with cherry and cranberry. Pours pink peach with murkiness and a small head. The taste is amazingly sour and tart with a great sour cranberry and SweetTarts taste. I was blown away by this one. Somebody want to get me a bottle? rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle at Sourfest. Amber pour with a creamy white head. Slightly sweet oaky, musty aroma, earthy, notes of vinegar and grape. Flavor are similar and palate is smooth, mellow with a dry finish. Not too shabby. Leighton (21765) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Kenny the Incredible. Vintage 2008, Batch #10. Pours cloudy amber with a fine, creamy head. Nose holds some tangy, acetic berries, a bit of oak. Ligh to medium sweet flavor with lots of tangy berries, raspberry, grape, some vinous notes, good tartness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, tangy, tart and quenching finish, with more zippy berries, vinous and oaky qualities, soft funk. Great stuff.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Batch #10. 2008. Bottle #1162. Cloudy brown beer, little pale tan head. Lightly sour nose. Palate is light, dry and slightly crisp. A little tart cherry and raspberry. It’s all reasonably mellow. Think the oaking has rounded things off nicely. Finishes light and semi dry.
The aroma is nicely sour with subtle smoke hints. Beautiful reddish brown color. Tastes wonderfully sour with tart cherry and raspberry flavors that pucker nicely. Overall a very nice beer. jackl (8271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Batch #10 bottle @ Bruce’s birthday tasting. Cheers to Ken for the pour! The appearance is deep amber red with a small head. The nose is grape jelly, some cherry. raspberry tartness. Hints of wild sourness and malevolent funk. The taste is honeyed raspberry and cherry fruit. Mild funky wildness. Hints of lactic yogurt tang. Moderately sour finish. Light body, zippy mouthfeel. Pretty solid beer. Theydon_Bois (20143) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
