2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep brown rusty color with a touch of ruby color on the edge. No visible bubble or head. Aromas are tart cherry, earthy funk and some vinous cider vinegar. On the palate its sour and very acidic. A bit to much vinegar comes through making this a palate wrecker, mouth puckering beer thats good for a sip or two but overall a bit to acidic for my palate. Maybe a touch more sweetness and a little carbonation would liven it up. The wild flavors are all there I just wish they were a lil more subtle.
Poured from a 750 ml bottle from 2013 I think.
Aroma is acidic with lots of berry, cherry, raisin and cassis notes. Some caramel, toasted bread, toffee and moderate nuttiness. The almond notes are interesting and work decently well with the fruity notes.
Pours a dark. murky, brown with some auburn hues and a thin, small, faint tan head that recedes immediately to the edges where a small amount lingers for a bit. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic and somewhat sharp with some caramel, toffee and lots of nut notes. Only some light sweetness. Fairly fruity with raisin, berry, cherry and fig. Low bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an alright beer but the lack of carbonation really hurts the beer. The toasted almonds are nice and work well with the fruit and acidity, but the acidity si a bit sharp for the beer. A bit better as it warms. markducommun (1213) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016
Cloudy mahogany, no head. Musty earthy, deeply sour berries. Slight vanilla, very light roasted character. Quite sour, some light sweetness. Medium body, very acidic. Lighter alcohol. Fairly dry, long finish. Very nice.

Pours juncoear amber with a sandy beige head. Aroma brings sweet and tart balanced very well with the toasted almonds bringing a smoky note as well. Flavor is so delicious with some sweet and tart vinegar with a perfect pucker, so enjoyed and the lips smacking at the end is as good as it gets! djd07 (15356) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2015

Bottle to glass. Pours a cloudy nut brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is dry, nicely tart, light nutty character. Flavor packs a huge sour, thick and oily on the tongue, lingering long into the finish. Solid sour. GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
