On tap at City Beer Store. Pours a pinkish amber with no head, just a couple of bubbles at the edge of the glass. The aroma has a lot of funky brett, with some lemon, raspberry, grape skin, some lactic, cherry, and a bit of oak. The taste is quite tart with lemon, raspberry, a lot of funky brett, and some grape skin. The finish is dry, oaky, and funky with a decent amount of astringency. Light body with low carbonation. It could have used more carbonation, but it was still quite a great beer.

Big thanks to heyohhh for the share. Now this is a hell of a brew. The pour is slightly pinkish, efferevescent, translucent, and results in vague white wisps atop the brew; good-looking. The aroma immediately announces some funk, and fruity acidity, in the most delicious way possible. Notes of tart cherry and sharp tannin are in the nose, along with some red wine-like notes. As it airs out, I appreciate the aroma more like some sort of tart berry melange. Flavor-wise, it is tart from the get-go, and never lets up. Really, this is just about perfect for me. Notes of fruit are implied, but not overly so; nuances include raspberry, cherry, cranberry, currant, tart-tannic red grape, all expressed in a minor and partial sense. The funk and acidity in this beer are evocative of Cantillons such as Fou Foune and 100% Kriek Lambic, which is to say it is a potent, musty, wild and delectable thing. Overall, I like this brew just about as much as I can like a brew.

A - Pinkish colored beer with a bit of orange in there. Appropriate white head on it that left some good lace and stick on the sides of the glass.

S - Nice tartness with some grape and fruit aromas. Really can't complain about this, tartness is spot on and the fruit helps to add a touch of needed sweetness.

T - Nice beries, grapes and a wonderful tartness. There's a nice acidity to this with helps to add to the pucker factor of this beer.

M - Pretty light, good carbonation, very dry.

O - Very sour great taste. If you like sours this is a hell of a beer that I'd love to try again.
