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

Fruitiness gives way to a palate cleansing bright sourness. Excellent sour

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 didn’t 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 isn’t and American Wild Ale/ Sour, but i’ll 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.

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.

Bottle. Dark brown with small brown head. Sharp sour aroma of wine vinegar with a sweet touch. Sour taste of wine vinegar, fruits like sourcherry and malty sweet notes. Spicy aftertaste with the sournes hanging im the mouth.

4.1
ManvsCity (183) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pour is clean and red with a medium beige head that fades to a thin persistent layer. Mild body carbonation gives a slight fizz to the tongue. Aromas of overripe cherries and brandy, pears, and a sweaty funk. Flavor is both sweet and lacto-tart, lots of rich black cherry-like fruit, oak, and possibly currents. Verges on cloying, but doesn’t quite reach that place. Hop bitterness is mostly absorbed by the malts and sugars. Slightly astringent aftertaste stays on the sides of the tongue and even reaches the nostrils. Quite a nice mix of sensations from this one.

3.8
SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 21, 2003
A roasted almond tone blends with a serious balsamic vinegar citrus and a touch of cinnamon. Arrives with a light beige head that lasts forever and a deep pool of crystal clear red-red-brown. This has a very unusual mix of sour and spice that is very nice. Starts off a bit sweet and puckers a bit and the end. A very well rounded beer.

4.4
couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Strong acetic aroma, some oakiness. Dark caramel, small creamy head. Sweet, overbalancing the tart. Acidic on the tounge. Great!
