330ml bottle. Another try after a nauseatingly sweet attempt many years ago. Small head on a reddish brown body. Nose is of raspberries and cherry, wood, and apple cider vinegar. Flavor is much of the same with sweetness and oak coming through very strong. Finish is short and fairly clean. While Id like more acid, its a tasty and easy to drink sour.

750 ml with a bottle with an expiration date of 6/2012 on the cork, poured into a Belgian tulip glass. Clear, dark brown mahogany color with brilliant ruby highlights held up to the light. Thick tan head leaves some lacing. Slight vinegar, sour smell, but very mellow. Just a mild vinegar tartness, slightly offset by a sweet brown sugar taste with some grape, cherries and even some wine qualities. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. Very smooth and delicious, one of the most enjoyable sour type beers Ive had to date. Im thinking this would pair nicely with a large ceasar salad. But smooth enough that it makes a nice session beer -- enjoyed drinking the entire bomber while watching football.

Poured a rich cloudy amber. I let it warm up in the glass and the head grew from a thin to a foamy layer. Smelled of tart cherries. Immediately tasted sweet and had a mineral/earthy like finish. The sourness is present, but not overwhelming.

As a beer fan you hope and need to try every style out there, just to be well-rounded, so I attempted to enter the realm of sours, and failed when I started with a Supplication, just didnt get it. So thanks to Ed at Ledgers Liqours in Berkeley, he informed me that this would be where to begin. Now I know this isnt and American Wild Ale/ Sour, but ill work up to that. This poured a deep amber, small head. Smell was sweet vinegar. Taste started pretty sour, but ended with a sweet vinegar taste. This is quite drinkable once you get going on it. Very good.

A few years old 75 cl bottle. Amber. Flavor: Vinuous with notes of wood. Flavor: Fruity. Subdued sourness. The maturing has made it softer. One of my favourite beers

bottle, Pours a beautifule dark ruby brown. Head was bubly and frothy with off white appearance. Nice Lacing and the head seemed to last a decent amount of time . Aroma has oak, cherries, Flavor has notes of cherries, apple and pear. Very nice sour mouthfeel not to dry like some sours The carbonation gives it a slight pepper like finish. I have tried on draft before and it has a little more soureness to it.
