Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David P., thanks! Hazy ugly orange/copper, with beautiful and intense lacing though. Aroma of cherries, apple, spices, acetic notes, brown sugar and flemish red reminiscences. Taste is moderately sweet with cherries and other red fruits notes. Not as acetic as the aroma. Body is light. There’s a very good balance between fruits/sweetness/sourness. Interesting Sour! JulienHuxley (5909) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle, shared by David. Cloudy orange copper pour with small white head. Aroma of cherries, cherry pie, spices, acetic, light menthol, brown sugar, berries. Taste is really good, a strong point. Light acidity, berries, brown sugar, quite sweet-sour., delicate. Palate is light and fruity, med carbonation. Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2013
750mL pours with an opaque copper body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma seems flower pedal like with a bit of sweetness and vinegar and passion fruit. The taste is similar as flowery notes quickly meet brown sugar dissolved in vinegar. In the background are murmurs of vague fruitiness. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2012

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. Hooray beer.
The appearance is autumn leaves, light ruby hues. Fairly hazy with a small, tan head that fades rapidly. Looks acetic.
The nose brings a healthy dose of raspberries, followed by wild yeast. Some lactic presence.
The flavor is pretty tasty. Yeasty raspberries with an acetic and lactic character.
A healthy sour and funk character, but nothing overwhelming.
A solid beer. Would have it again.

Thanks to PaulUnwin for sharing this one. Cheers, Paul! Pours a hazy red with a white head. Nose is amazing tart berries, vinegar, some tartness, oak, and some vinous qualities. Flavor follows closely. All in all an awesome sour. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Red pour. Aroma is loaded with tart fruit. Tons of cherry and raspberry, some vinegar and oak. Damn fine brew! Steve_0 (3744) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle at home with my wife, poured into my HF tulip. Appearance is hazy magenta with a soft brown tint and small white head that quickly dissipated. Red wine vinegar, oak, sour raspberries, tannin, cherry pit, citric acid in the aroma. Taste is red grape skins, raspberries, light acid, wood, tannin, light funk, and biscuit with a moderately sour finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-to-soft carbonation. Well-balanced sour, that doesn’t overdo it on the acid/vinegar. Well-done. kbutler1 (1381) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle. Can’t remember who opened this one but I think it was Mike, thanks man!. Pours a really nice reddish hued color with a slight collared head. Very fruity aroma of cherry, strawberry, and raspberry with a background note of funk. Medium/light mouthfeel. Nice fruit forward flavors with a blended dark cherry and raspberry note, slight acidic. A little woody flavor. Overall, pretty nice.
