Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

3fourths (9324) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2016 Aroma impression is nuts, inky chocolate, raisin, essential oils, with a yeast-derived licorice and spruce and fabric note, that at times turns to stinky BO / poo (is that the souring bacteria?) In the mouth its lightly sweet and airy-fluffy in the mouth with expansive carbonation (too much), finishing spiced and slightly sour. Kind of a weird beer, I guessed it was some sort of Belgian Biere de Noel, and didnt get the wine barrel character at all.

75cl bottle. Reddish deep dark brown with a nice tan head. Sour, vinous, licorice, fruity and wood aroma. Soft carbonation and full body. Taste is sour and sweet with vinous character. Overall, a good beer but I was expecting more complexity.

I have wanted to try this beer for a very long time. But, at this point, i thought it was no longer produced. How surprised I was when I spotted this at the Craft Beer Cellar is StL. Well, of course I needed to drink it right there and then. 750mL capped bottle, dark brown glass dark brown color. Fizzy head fades quickly but leaves a surface covering lacing. A small bubble type lacing. Cola looking beer. Some roast aroma and wet leaf. Not sour but musty. Earthy and light must flavor, faint cherry. Light body with light and so carbonation. Not what I was expecting for this brewer.

The beer pours very dark brown with a large bubbly tan head. The aroma has light berry sourness, wine, prunes, figs, caramel and some smooth Belgian yeast. It has a lighter body with lots of frothy carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, but has more of a red wine aspect with some oakiness as well. There is a good amount of peppery spice and raisins as well. Pretty enjoyable.

Noire collet epais de bulles moyennes Aromes fruits rouges, lgrement aigre, quelques notes boises. Une fois en bouche son cote caramel, chocolat se developpe en arriere plan des fruits. Aigreur tres discrete. Tres facile a boire pour une sour, ideale pour faire decouvrir le style a des neophytes

750ml bottle at home, 4th August 16. Pours a black beer, large foamy head, aroma is wood, vineous, cherry, oak. Taste is dry, vineous, slight sour, damp wood, cellar. Over carbonated, its OK, would like more sweetness, depth and bigger body.
