Bottle at Fin & Loz’s tasting with Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella & kids consumed 21.10.11 Jan brought this along, cheers Jan. Pours brown in colour with no head. Touch hazy, sour and woody as one might expect. I reminded a little of De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5 fonefan (49520) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2011

Bottle (I want to say it was a 2004, but I am not sure) shared by the staff at Woodshop 6. Pours with a hazed brown body full of particles with a small off-white head. Very nice aroma of red wine, jammy fruit, quite decadent. Cherry, raspberry and nectarine. A bit bready. Lightly oxidized. Flavors are sour, vinegar, acetic (a bit harsh), brown sugar, balsamic, vinous, red wine, cherry and raspberry. Dry and acetic. Very glad to have tried this! nickd717 (4700) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Tiiiiiiick. Finally got this one thanks to HopHead84. Hazy ruddy brown in color with a small light tan head. Nice aroma that’s oaky and reminiscent of an oud bruin with sour cherry and leathery funk. Really excellent flavor with big sour cherry, oak, leather, and some red wine notes. Somewhat tannic and drying on the palate with medium acidity and medium body. Really damn tasty. Glad to finally tick this - thanks, Shane.

Bottle thanks to Shane... Medium brown, bright amber note, light tan head... Smells like caramel cherries with a light vinegar finish, finish is a touch chemically... The taste is a awesome, cherry desert with brown sugar, really nice vinegar tart cherry finish... Great BuckeyeBoy (7894) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2011
First off WOW I can’t believe I got to try this. A huge thanks to footbalm for pulling this rare treat out. Pours out a dark cloudy copper topped with a sand head. Aroma was of dark cherries, oak, sweetness, light pit fruit, and some brett. Taste was as the aroma with the cherries leading the way; next you get some raspberries, vanilla, oak, barnyard, funk, tart, a little grape, and some spice. Thanks again buddy for this.

Huge thanks to Puzzl for bringing this bad boy out to my farewell. Hazy amber pour with a bit of soft dried cherry fruitiness. A little bit of light pineapple tartness. Cherry, red licorice and a bit of light cocoa as well. Cherry and cherry pits along with a soft fruit skin tannic character. Very rich and softly acetic toward the finish. Damn - this is great stuff.

Bottle shared by Craytonic at our local tasting. Thanks Matt. After some deliberation and research as to whether this was actually Woody or Woody Brune, we got confirmation it was in fact Woody brune. This was a really nice surprise. We were instructed to let it sit upright for a few weeks to let the sediment settle, and it was great advice. The end of the bottle had about 1/2 inch of sludge and because we had 4 glasses lined up and made it one continuous pour, we were able to avoid it all together. Now on to the beer... Poured a reddish/orange/brown with a light fluffy white head that was fleeting. Once we all tasted it, the first response was... Corked and Caged La Folie x2. We had opened one at the previous tasting and all thought it was basically the same beer. It was a very clean flanders red/oude brune sour. Balsamic aroma and taste with clear oak notes. Slightly acetic on the end. Surprisingly spritsy/lively for being so old. This bottle was definitely taken care of and held up very well. Thanks again matt for the rare treat. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 3, 2011
A: The bottle is excessively carbonated which required some bleeding and of the pressure by loosening the cap slowly. But eventually, we have a pour that is a brownish/amber color with a large off-white head.
S: Immediately you get the sour cherry aromas along with plenty of oak. There is a nice sweet malt character underneath, very reminiscent of an Oud Bruin/Flanders Red. Quite musty with a lot of wine, too.
T: Plenty of sour cherry and cherry pie flavor going on here. There’s a lot of tartness as well, partially from a vinegar component. Not as much sweetness as on the nose and a bit more toward the dry side.
M: The body is medium with a very high/lively carbonation.
D: One of the better American sour beers I’ve ever had and it has held up amazingly well over the last several years.
