Received a couple of bottles of this in trade, I think this is the bottle mmtmatrix gave me.
Poured into a Brooklyn snifter from the corked/caged 750mL dated 11/07. Dark brown, with a two finger head that falls to a thin layer. Smells just a little sweeter than it is. This is a very drinkable sour red. Still burns a little in the stomach, but it goes down smooth and pleasant.
Note from 2008 La Folie: There is an interesting finish on this that I didn't notice in the 07. I'm not sure I like it as much... hopefully it'll be good with some age on it.

2014 bottle poured into a mini snifter.
A: Dark burgundy red. A little lacing and head, but dissipates quickly.
S: Like fruity vinegar. Acutely acidic. The sourness of this is almost overwhelming.
T: Super sour. Like biting a lime wedge sour, ok, not quite that sour. However, it is one of the most sour beers I have had. It does have a bit of a spicy fruit finish. If you like sours, you will probably like this. If you dont, you will probably hate it.
M: Tingly, a surprisingly thick feel. It is not a BA stout by any means, but for how puckering it is, its not very thin.
O: A great sour, it may only be released once a year, but had good availability despite that. Drinks great fresh.
