Sour aroma; earthy, a little roasty. Sour flavor, with some roasted malt character that go well together. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a super dark near black with a small tiny bubbled tan head. Aroma is very nice, big sour brett character, acetic, lactic, lots of wood, nice vanilla component, burnt cherry. Flavor follows but there some very distracting off flavors, something burnt, something a bit roasty, weirdly boozy, but other than that the cherry candy sweetness and tartness is spot on and very similar to some RR, maybe just picking up tannins in the finish? The dark malts just seem to muddle what is otherwise a very very tasty sour. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is nicely tart, dark berries, a touch funky some oakiness, winey sour cherry. Flavor starts with a nice crisp tartness, biting and a but earthy and funky with dark fruit. Quickly picks up some malty cocoa notes towards the finish which loses some of the funk and tartness. FInishes still a bit crisp and woody but more mellow. Medium body and crisp carbonation. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2012

12.7oz bottle from baujm Dark brown with a ruby hue and a creamy tan thin head. Decent sourness, some vinegar, bit of fruit with cherry at the forefront, lots of malt. Tart and tangy, high carbonation, moderate body, somewhat of a flanders brown taste but more sour, long dry and sour finish. Atom (2525) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle pours dark brown with a large frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, black berries, cherries, slight funk. Taste has a sharp sour bitterness into sweet fruits and finishing dry with roasted malts and oak. Well put together and tasty! This bottle had over a year on it and I can see it continuing to improve with age. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours dark unclear, like a black IPA with a big sandy tan head. The aroma is a bit sweet and soy and brown sugar earthiness. The body is quite bubbly with some light funk and maltiness with a smooth ending. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle generously shared by Sparky! Crimson, scarlet, and ruby all make their way into the glass along with a small eggshell head. Fruity: plum, raisin, and cherry skin are there. Also a bit of an earthy quality with grassy notes. Tart and sour but not jaw-locking. Pretty good!
