Very creamy collar, nice full lacing. Lingers long, ruby body, standard nice principle.

Cranberry coffee and light funk. Bright cherry nature.

Tastes of off natured malts, Brett dryness and straw, cherries, and finishes roasted.coffee grounds.

Medium bodied, low carbonation, creamy, lingers half strong.

Not nearly as tart as ecpcted.

Served in a 4 ounce rocks glass at The Avenue in New Orleans. From notes. Reviewed 8 January 2012.

A: No head, some tracing. Very black, but with brownish glints in the light. Definitely opaque.

S: Brettanomyces? Yes, some. Lambic yeast is in my porter! So are bright fruits and even some sweet chocolate. Trace coffee. Sour and amazing.

T: One of the best and most interesting 'sours' (usually not my thing) I've come across. The endtaste is chalky and full of chocolate, but the first half is full of funky-sour yeast. Hot damn!

M: Little carbonation. Thin, but I suppose that works.

O: Phenomenal. The first sour beer that I've loved. Highly recommended. Will have again!

Served from a stubby bottle into a Drie Fonteinen wine glass. Beer is black / dark brown, hazy at the corners, big tan head, heavily carbonated, decent retention.

Aroma is sweet, roasty, and funky with this almost metallic sense to it.

Beer is medium to light in body, roasty bitter at the end, thin up front fills out quickly. The midpalate is a chalky, funky, yeasty, metallic mildly offputting flavor that sort of burns and bothers me. Not a repeat but interesting none the less.

Bottle at Drie Fonteinen in September. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a deep, dark brown color with a good tan head and nice lacing. The nose brings faint roast and a bit of chocolate plus some nice sourness. Flavor falls along the same lines; pretty good blend of the two components. Medium body and a dry, slightly-sour finish. Pretty good brew.
