UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 DRAFT: big tan head, brown chestnut color. Abso-fuckin-lutely beautiful nose of wood, cherry-rhubard sourness and funky fine yeastiness. Roasty nut flavors intertwined with oaky wood and sweet chocolate...candy bar-like at times with that mysteriously quenching brett finish. Is this the perfect beer? Iíve heard mixed feelings as far as the bottled version. Fuck it though. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Brad you made pauls tasting, thank you. Pours a brune amber body. Creamy off white tan head. Sour cherries, a light funky cherry tart acidity. Very low acidity, this beer is phenominal. omhper (24963) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2007
Bottled, thanks cquiroga! Pale brownish amber, no head. Acidic lighly oaky strawberry aroma. Dryish with soft malt and gently sparkling mouthfeel. Complex flavour of wild strawberries, vinegar, oak and blueberries. Vinous with near Cantillon-like acidity. An ultra superb beer that left me speechless. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2007
750. Aroma is absolutely divine. Every time I go to take a sip, I am stopped short by the pure bliss entering my nose. Cinnamon, clove, clover, and very light sugar. White wine. Fresh baked bread and tart cherries. Wow. Like Rodenbach, but much more refined and complex. The taste is chewy and pure, cascades of tart fruits -- strawberry, raspberry, gooseberry, peach -- sit atop a brown sugar cookie. All of it dressed in 50 year old balsamic vinegar. Supremely refined and stunningly presented. Fantastic! Thank you, whoever sent this to me... sorry I canít remember who! It was a treat indeed. This is going right back on my wants list, though I have a feeling I may not be seeing it again. wetherel (1880) - Cupertino, California, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Tasted from bottle from cquiroga at 2007 Pizza Port Strong Ale festival. Huge thanks Chris! Itís hard to read my notes (some cursing, kick ass beer, etc.. apparently I liked it a lot). Cloudy. Great aroma. Super easy to drink. Excellent. Canít wait for Red Poppy (the new Le Woody Brune) to be released in Spring.

On tap at the 2006 Pizza Port Belgian Fest. The Flemish sour pours a medium brown color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is tart, woody, cherry, fruity and vinous. Medium bodied Flemish Sour. Malts are fruity, sweet and tart. Lots of cherries, lots of wood, some funk as well. Damn this is a mix and match flavor bonanza. Nice balance though and a very nice crisp dry finish. Excellent beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is tart and slightly bitter Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Great sour cherry aroma with a hint of vinegar and mild yeastiness. Pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a small off-white head. Starts with a quick hit of lightly sweet cherry that quickly turns to sour cherry. There are light hints of vinegar and yeast in the backgound. Mild woody finish. Outstanding! toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - JAN 3, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 PP SAF. Bottle thanks to cquiroga, thanks Chris. Pours amber with a slight off-white head, somewhat cloudy also. Aroma of funky sourness. Flavors were great, sour cherries, brett, and a little bready. A rare treat and make me look forward to Red Poppy. gotbeach (139) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2008

Poured clear with no head. Sour yeast hits hard and nice, sweet fruit, slightly woody and very drinkable.
Cloudy orange pour with a light head. The aroma is plenty of oak and sweet cherry with hints of citrus. The flavor is a great blend of thick, sweet cherry with mature oak. Really nice smooth, chewy body. Awesome brew.
