Red-brown pour with a small off-white head, with minimal lacing. Aroma is sour and vinegary. The taste is the same--vinegary with oak. Overall I liked it for what is claims to be.

One of the very last remaining bottles from a 2014 cross country haul. Full notes from last night.

A- 375ml into two glasses with a deep ruby hue and a off white cap. Frothy head just a thin pillow and lacing is spotty.

S- A bit of cheek pucker inducing sourness off the top with lactic mostly but a touch of acetic acid. Lemon juice, green apple skin, wet toasted wood, tart red and sweet black cherry, musty grape and raisin.

T- Sour fruits and acids up front with lactic sourness being the main flavor of the brew. Lemon juice, sour green apple, tart pie cherries, toasted nuts and slight almond, raisin, light caramel, vinous grape, medium toast oak wood and a hint of band aid.

MF- Light bodied with a crisp medium high carbonation. Somewhat fizzy and foamy consistency with an Intensely sour finish.

A lot of sourness with a touch of some fruits both pale and dark. Becomes battery acid status towards the end of things but stays true to the style mostly.

A: The beer is hazy reddish brown in color. It poured with a short beige head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of vinegar and sourness are present in the nose. The smell gets stinger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of vinegar along with notes of sourness and oak. Faint bits of sweetness are also perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a very good representation of the style. It's a little sour and tart, and the vinegar is not overpowering.

Pours orange/chestnut with a sliver of tan head. Never clears, no head retention or lacing

S: Sourness & aged hops, fades a bit as it warms

T: Tartness, sourness, choke cherry, acidic notes & crazy oaky dryness up front. Sourness/tartness, raspberries, tart cherries, & tongue stripping dryness, a little almond sweetness/dryness shows up as this warms. Finishes tart, tart, tart with puckery sourness & just a little too much acidity for my liking, but only just

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, enamel being stripped on teeth...

A tough one to drink so mind numbingly sour, only for the stout of heart. Sour beyond belief. Glad I got to try it, but bloody expensive. I'm sure some wine drinkers might dig this
