tightslice (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 11, 2017
On tap at Wicked Weed Funkatorium in Asheville, NC. Aroma is mild funk, cocoa, dark fruits, some tobacco leaves. Taste is dry cocoa, dark fruit skins, tobacco, oak with some mild funk notes. One of the more flavorful WW sours I’ve tried.

neongolden (1611) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2017
(500ml 2016 bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours a hazy reddish brown with a big, short lived off white head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is heavy on red wine character, sweet and moderately sour at once. Notes of raspberry, blackberry, strong notes of sweet dried dark fruits (dates but also figs etc.), dark cherries, tannic oak, light acetic sherry vinegar quality. Flavour is tart but not sour, charries, raspberries, berry seeds, a little lemon juice, very little acetic acid, fairly neutral wood with subtle wine tones, some crabapple. Fairly dry in the finish, tannic, some berry skins. Light to medium bodied, extremely high carbonation. Promises more on the nose than the flavour delivers, not unusual for WW. Last of my pre-Inbev stock.

Shag (2987) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2017
A reddish brown color with a pinkish head. The aroma contains some vinegar, cherries, and raspberries. The flavor is only slightly sour and we’ll balanced with some cherries and dark fruit. Not over the top sour and really good

rougeau13 (2958) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2017
On tap at the Growler Spot. Dark clear reddish. Aroma of tart berries and red wine. Tart, fruity and really balanced. Nice. Damn you InBev. You strike again 😫.

3.9
BlazerT (1089) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Karmel, owoce jeśne, daktyle, figi, trochę takiej surowej dębowej beczki, lekko taniczne, winne, ściągające. Raczej równowaga między słodyczą, a kwaśnym charakterem z fajnymi akcentami czerwonego wina i owoców leśnych.

kaser (6221) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Amazing beer. Dark red pour from bottle in Dubuque. Smells like sweet red wine. Taste is cherries, grape; vinegar in a good way, and apple. Love it.

hopdog (12486) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2017
Bottle. Poured a deep amberish color with an off white head. Fruity, berries, and the red wine barrel comes out as it opens.

3.9
bhensonb (15098) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 22, 2017
Tap at Cap Tap. Pours darkly ruddy with a light tan head. Aroma is sourish, woody, fruity. Med body at least. Flavor is dark berry, wood, some darkish fruit. It’s more tart than sour. Were it raspberry I’d be thinking Belgium. Drinks easy. Quite tasty.
