Thanks to Frank for this one. 750ml unlabeled corked and caged bottle into a Cantillon balloon. Reviewed from notes.

Color is clear purple. Head is thin and white. Spotty lace with decent stick. Very nice all around.

Nose is raspberry, slightly tart grape skin, sweet fruit, moss, and wood. Pretty mellow with a balanced, subdued funk.

Opens sweet grape and raspberry. Plastic, wood, cobweb and sweet tart fruit in the middle. Tart lemon pucker with hay and cheesiness. Finishes tart raspberry and grape skin. Aftertaste is vinous.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down sparkling. Puckering finish with a filmy, sticky aftertaste. Very good.

An awesome beer overall but it's certainly the worst of the bunch when compared to Grrrz and Grrrz Kriek. Still well worth trying though.

Had on tap at the Et Tu Brut release and sampled from the bottle at the Le Roar release to confirm awesomeness. Review from tap.Pour is bright red, mostly clear, with a light white head. Nose is woody and bretty with ripe grape notes and cherry fruitiness, nice earthy rind throughout with subtle lactic touches. Taste is fairly sour with a very bright grape and cherry fruit. Well balanced sourness and strong oaky sawdust notes. Moderate rind, Belgian style lambic. Bight, expressive, sour, light body and strong carb with a moderately dry finish. Absolutely amazing!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #162/353.

Appearance - Pale reddish body. Very small white head. Settles to nothing.

Smell - Quite a complex nose. I guess that's grape. Very fruity. Oaky. Lightly lemony. Yogurt.

Taste - Lots of berry fruit. Sour. Yogurty lactic sour. A little lemony, but then it gets really overwhelmed by oak.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Remarkably complex flavor profile from an American sour. Just a little too oaky for me.

Bottle picked up at the recent release, and shared last night.

This one pours a murky orange amber, and a small head and basically no lacing.

Smells like slightly sour red grapes, funk, leather, oak, lemon, and grapefruit.

This is definitely one of the better variants in the series. The grapes are well balanced in the brew, they shine but not so much that the wonderful complexities of the base- the funk, the earthy lemon, the oak, and the leather- are subsumed.

This is medium bodied, substantial but not thick, with a juicy mouthfeel.

A wonderful grape sour here.
