On-tap at Ladyface Ale Companie, Agoura Hills, CA

A: The beer is very hazy red in color and has some yellow hues. It poured with a thin beige head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sour cherries, oak and vanilla are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has more sourness and flavors of sour cherries and less of the oak and vanilla.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nicely blended sour that is quite drinkable and isn't too sour. (589 characters)

On tap at the alehouse.
Aged in '07 Justin Cabernet Sauvignon french oak barrels.

A: Pours into a tulip a hazy reddish brown/amber with a thin off-white head which leaves no lace.

N: Vinegar tartness, oak wood, stone fruit pits.

T: Tart oak tannins, stone fruit pits (such as cherry, peach and apricot). No real funk here. Some red grape notes.

M: Semi-moderate body and light carbonation. Mildly tart with a prickly acidic finish and mellow tannins.

O: Light and refreshing. A good flemish red although a son of Rodenbach. (528 characters)

On tap for the 4th Anniversary event at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one. Smell is sour and tart with some fruit, wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same along with a slight buttery flavor and an acidic finish on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell and solid flavor. (482 characters)

On-tap at Oakquinox

Pours a murky dark orange/amber color with an off-white head. The lactic acidity comes through nicely up front, lots of lemon to it. Only a mild funkiness with some oak, red wine, and a bit of must. A solid aroma. The flavor is kind of a let down. It’s a bit watery, but it is moderately tart with some grape, cherry, and lemon fruitiness. A little bit of oak and wine flavor, but very minimal funk. Would have been really good if not for the watered down flavor. (488 characters)
