4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours dark red with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is tart wine, fruit and funk. Taste is sour, wine and plum with only a little oak overpowered by the tartness. Very fizzy carbonation, very dry and light body and the tartness sticks around with some wine flavors that linger. Overall an amazing sour beer worthy of the hype RR gets.
Pours reddish amber with a minimal beige head that fades quickly. Nice vinous aromas with currants and grapes and hints of wood and lactos. Tart attack, nice currants and wood complexity on the palate, finishes dry and tart. Very good. ABUSEDGOAT (2769) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2017

Clear deep red color with a tan head. Fruity aroma of plums and currants. Tart flavors produce hints of oak and tobacco and finishing with a long sherry sweetness. MarcoDL (5028) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2017
Draft at the brewpub. Dark pour. Aroma of oak, cherry, tart and mild acid. Rich taste of cherry, tart, oak, vinous red grape, ripe fruit, soft sourness and a long finish. This is true quality.

Taste complex, as in aroma, dark malts, very string barrel notes, sour, slightly funky. Mind you this is 5 years aged sample. Interesting creation.

Bottle at Federal Taphouse Harrisburg. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Huge red wine, wood, and tartness on the nose. Lots of red wine, dark fruit, and wood on the tongue. Hides it’s booze well. Nice! PorterPounder (8070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Brought back from the brewery in Santa Rosa by my son - thanks! Hazy, light copper pour, not much of a head to speak of. Pleasant sour aroma, some Sweet Tarts candy. some apricot sourness. First impression of the flavor is that of walking into a humidor with some solid cedar woody accents, a touch of apricot, some raspberry sourness. Solid spritz to the mouthfeel. solid brew!
