On tap at Stumbling Monk, pours an opaque dark mahogany with a large beige head. Aroma brings out dark soured fruits, some vinegar, and some oak barrels. Flavour is supremely complex, with loads of soured dark fruits, moderate vinegar, oak, and subtle vanilla notes. Amazingly well-balanced, with a perfect sourness, woodiness and oakiness.

JohnnyJ (5539) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draft at churchills. Pours a dark brown, with red tinge and a thin light tan head. Aroma is very oaky, with some dark fruit and caramel. Flavor also has a lot of barrel character, oak, dates, fig, light vanilla, some oxidation, caramel malt, bourbon barrel, and mild sourness. Interesting beer, pretty good, but I dont think I would buy it again.

Tap. Dark red/brown pour. Dry oak aroma. Taste is leather, red wine, light tart, bitterness, and oak. Smooth mouthfeel. Okay.

Bottle sample at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours dark brown with a beige head, aroma of malt, chocolate, honey and wood, flavor is sourish, a bit bizarre with chocolate, wood, pickles juice, medium bodied

Very dark red - brown beer. Short lived pale tan head. Palate is dry and crisp. Sour, but not overly so. Its notably Flanders Red sour, the tangy red wine barrel adds to it but its then rounded off by the oak and mildly sweet bourbon. Well buried chocolate. Dry finish. Somehow isnt quite as good as it looks on paper but certainly tasty.

solidfunk (8576) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Awesome beer. Lots of sour apricot, plum and some booze. Pours dark brown with only a little initial head or lacing. Light sour finish. Comes together super well. On tap at Ebenezer Kezars.

allmyvinyl (10284) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2013
500ml bottle shared at home. Dark brown pour, thick creamy head. Very interesting nose, definitely some of the barrel there, but also dark red fruits, yeast funk and spice. Tastes astonishing. A riot of sweet, sour and spice. Good carbonation and long finish. Wow.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2013
Very dark reddish brown beer OK head. Sour and sweet mixed together, malts, some spices, a bit liquor and wood. Totally not my kind of brew.

Minderbinder (3459) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle 500ml. Pours very deep burgundy with low-med beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of fruits, sourness, chocolate, roasted malt, some alcohol. Pretty complex. Taste is of fruits, roasted malt, chocolate, slight sourness, some acidity. Sweet too. Again, very complex. Palate: Medium body. Round. Overall: Very interesting complexity. Alcohol well hidden. A bit too much on the roasted malt taste-wise. Apart from overall complexity, there is no massive hint of barrel action (oak, dryness, booze, etc.). Outstanding.
