On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter.

Pours a ruby copper color with a very thin off-white head. Not much lacing. Nose is slightly sour and has a bit of oak with a bit of an herbal character, maybe juniper or light sage. The flavor is mildly sour with light pit fruits and a semi-dry finish. Pretty good, but I prefer the variations.

2.2/5  rDev -41.6%

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The pour is a murky amber color with almost no head at all.

S: Quite the nose on this...it's very musty with tons of celery and chile pepper. There's also a lot of garbage, hot garbage, at that. Quite gross, really. It's not all that sour, but does have some lemon and grass.

T: Starts off with a stale cereal flavor, maybe old cheerios. Despite the awful aroma, the flavor is quite bland and a bit watery. Some mild malt and oak with more of the celery and vegetable character. A very light tartness.

M: Maybe medium in body with low carbonation.

O: Just an awful aroma. Not a good flavor, either.

An odd little beer. It was almost like a little Christmas beer, bitter sour, spices.

Beer is kind of brown / clear / dark / ruby with a lazy haloed head of offwhite bubbles.

Aroma is sweet and sour with a mild almost nutmeg aroma in there.

The beer is light in body and thin on the flavor on the front palate, the midpalate definitely has a nutmeg sort of spice in there but I can't put my finger on it. Overall it is a weird little sour with only some final tartness. Not too good or bad.

First had: on tap at Blind Tiger Ale House, NYC, NY

Served in a tulip glass, this beer had a beautiful dark brown color with ruby highlights, a thin off-white head that retained as a small layer of delicate bubbles. Tart aroma, some spice and Belgian yeast. Nice sourness in the taste, but not so mouth-puckering that you can't enjoy a full glass or even two: notes of dried apricot, sour apple, and dark berries, acetic acid, with hints of spice and an earthy quality. Meduim-bodied and moderately drinkable for the style.

I had this on-tap at Churchkey, poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear reddish amber color with a mild amount of off white head that goes away quickly.

Smell: Fruity vinegar with some wine barrel and mild, sweet malt.

Taste: Very wine like. Sour vinegar with some woody barrel notes. There is a mild caramel like flavor in the background. The finish is sour and full of grapes.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a mild amount of carbonation and a buttery finish.

Overall: Honestly I thought this beer was a bit boring. I'm also not convinced it is listed under the correct category. Quite smooth, but I don't think I'll have another.

From 01/14/11 notes. Had on tap at The Gingerman in NYC.

a - Pours a murky mahogany brown with an inch of tan head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of fruity malts, dark fruit, tart apples, little bit of sourness.

t - Tastes of sour apples, sourt tart fruit, fruity malts, caramel malts. More sourness than in the smell.

m - Light to medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

d - A nice Belgian dark ale with some sourness to it. I enjoyed it and certainly would order it again.

2/5  rDev -46.9%

Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a one finger beige head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.

Slightly earthy aroma with some earthy oak, vinous fruit, vinegar and acetone. Some dark malt, caramel and toffee along with hints of raisin, fig and solvent.

On the lighter end of medium bodied with a harsh acetone character that dominates the flavor, overpowering almost everything else. Very harsh vinegar-y solvent character that's tart and puckering but not pleasant or flavorful. Subtle oak and vinous fruit underneath but it's hard to pick up anything because of the overwhelming acetic character.

On tap at Max's during their annual Belgian fest.

The beer pours a reddish dark amber color with minimal head retention and pretty much no lacing. To be honest, the beer looks as if it's completely flat, though once I tasted it, that proved not to be the case. On the nose I get wine and sour, with the sour component clearly dominating. The flavor profile replicates the nose, with the beer showing light carbonation. There is considerable flavor in this medium bodied beer, and I suppose if you are a sour lover you will be happy with this one. Alchol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and the beer is not at all boozy (which is no surprise given the abv.).

Mehhhh... this just isn't working for me. The beer is too one dimensional, and that one dimension is largely sour. I guess it's OK, but at least for me, there just isn't enough else going on.

On tap at The Lion's Pride.
Came to the table a slightly hazy brown with a thin tan head that slowly dissipates to a ring. Smells of oak, vanilla, caramel, and ethanol with a hint of tart. The flavor is not what I expected based on the nose with a heavy tart cherry and lemon thing with caramel edges going on. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart almost chalky mouthfeel. This was not my favorite is all tart and a little funk with no balance.

On tap at Churchkey, poured into a tulip...A dark medium brown, a little clear, pretty ugly. A light bright tan head, no retention or lacing...Aroma is sweet, caramel, lightly tart, but pretty boring...The taste is a shocker as its incredibly sour, no clue this was coming from such a muted aroma. Its weird though because there is essentially no flavor to this beer, just tartness. Reminds me of unblended lambic. This is very interesting, worth trying for sure.

On tap at Tørst.

Pours a pinkish-tinged deep red. Head is off-white slightly, small bubbles that dissipate to nothing. Nice colour, otherwise meh.

Smells tart and spicy. Plenty of red vinous notes with malt vinegar, black pepper and sour cherry. In the Belgian style of sours, very intriguing and refreshing too.

Taste is tart from start to finish. More vinous notes and plenty of sour cherry. Gets dry, peppery spice midway and then crisp sour vinegar notes late on the palate. Manages to finish with a sweetness, like fruit-infused vinegar. Makes it very drinkable and pleasant overall.

A bit puckering, but smooth enough late. OK body.

Very nice sour ale. Couple of organic, almost mulchy notes on there but mostly just crisp yet complex flavour bomb.
