Draft at the brewpub in Williamsport, PA.

Pours a beautiful deep ruby red color with slight tangerine/burnt orange edges and a 1.5 finger, pinkish off-white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.  

Ridiculous aroma that's bursting with juicy vinous fruit and  a strong red wine barrel presence.  Nice toasted oak tannins and subtle vanilla along with very prominent sweet red wine notes.  Juicy grapes, sour cherry, strawberry and other dark berries countered by sweaty, earthy funk and musty farmhouse yeast.  Plenty of earthy barnyard bugs/wild yeast balancing out the sweeter notes.  One of the best smelling beers I've come across.  

Sour and puckering with nice acidity but not harsh at all and no acetone/solvency to speak of.   Tart yet very refreshing with a strong vinous red wine presence countering the funky bugs and acidic sourness.  Dry oaky tannins and vanilla bean followed by strong red wine flavor, grapes, sour cherry, and strawberry and cream.  Almost a perfect combination of funky bugs, acidic sourness, oak tannins and sweet red wine notes.  Slightly minerally in the finish .  Complex, delicious and very easy to drink.  One of the best american sours I've had in a long time.  Excellent!

Had on tap at the Et Tu Brut release and sampled from the bottle at the Le Roar release to confirm awesomeness. Review from tap.Pour is bright red, mostly clear, with a light white head. Nose is woody and bretty with ripe grape notes and cherry fruitiness, nice earthy rind throughout with subtle lactic touches. Taste is fairly sour with a very bright grape and cherry fruit. Well balanced sourness and strong oaky sawdust notes. Moderate rind, Belgian style lambic. Bight, expressive, sour, light body and strong carb with a moderately dry finish. Absolutely amazing!

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #162/353.

Appearance - Pale reddish body. Very small white head. Settles to nothing.

Smell - Quite a complex nose. I guess that's grape. Very fruity. Oaky. Lightly lemony. Yogurt.

Taste - Lots of berry fruit. Sour. Yogurty lactic sour. A little lemony, but then it gets really overwhelmed by oak.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Remarkably complex flavor profile from an American sour. Just a little too oaky for me.

Pours a bright red with white collar of head. Nose has a fair amount of funk and Brett character with some notes of spice, sourdough, and grape skin. Taste with nice tartness up front, the funk increases as it goes with notes of caraway, grapes, and tannic notes. Effervescent carbonation and light body. Incredibly complex and delicious.
