Thank you scott for sharing this one!

a - most notable thing about the pour was the lack of carbonation. plum purple in color with no head at all and no lacing.

s - smells like nail polish and rubbing alcohol, not nice. smells strong and way more than 6.2.

t - not feeling it. like the nose suggests. nailpolish remover and rubbing alcohol. chocolate and nutmeg are working underneath the grossness.

m - no carbonation. not good. boozy without even having the ABV for that flavoring. a flat beer just doesn't stand a chance.

o - Down the drain this went for mike, scott, and myself. i just learned that this one cost $26!!!! What!?! you crazy, this MUST be a joke.

poured into duvel tulip.

Appearance: medium brown bodied beer with a deep red hue when held up to light. 1 Finger of frothy thin white head that drops to a thin cap.

Smell: Big vinegar notes. Sour cherries. Musty oak barrels. Moderate funk. Yeah the vinegar is really powerful and a little distracting. Almost like a concentrated urine smell.

Taste: mildly sour cherries. Then it goes into a medicinal cough syrup type flavor. It finishes with a touch of vinegar, musk, funk, and oak. The cough syrup flavor ruins it for me in this beer.

Mouthfeel: high end of a light bodied beer almost a medium body. Moderate carbonation. Its drinkable and well carbonated, but its not going to make this beer much better.

Overall: Without the urine smell and the cough syrup taste... I think that this beer would be really good. The off flavors and smell really hurt this beer the most. I am not a huge fan, but to each his own. I would pass on this beer if I were you. Glad this was a bottle that was given to me, I might have gotten mad at myself if I had bought this beer.

$16 for a 16.9 oz bottle into a generic tulip glass

A - dark chestnut brown, minimal carbination, no head, no lacing

S - even before the pour the vinegar smell is present but not
overwhelming. Otherwise unremarkable.

T - very mellow for a sour. Once the initial sourness subsides its very stout like.

M - Flat

If you love sours steer clear of this it's not worth the price.

Bottle poured into a tulip.

A - Dark brown/mahogany color with a quickly receding head. Some dark reds and cloudiness. Leaves almost nothing but this almost opaque/cloudy beer in the glass.

S - Very tart, almost acidic. Some fruit and vinegar. Possibly some sugary malts as well. A few different smells in there, but mostly overtaken by that tart/acid smell.

T - Decent sour flavor, but not over the top. Problem is that this is Super sweet in the finish. Lots of caramel malt and brown sugar.

M - Lighter body, very low carbonation. Somewhat dry, but it's a sour so....

O - Just OK. Somewhat of a balance problem. Sour start, but then super sweet finish. Price is just way too high.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a murky, rusty amber color with a wisp of a head and little lacing. A film does sit on top for a while. Aroma light with vinegar, stone fruit, cherry pie, and damp rotting wood. Tastes much of the same but in a less "bad" way than the smell. Body and palate was pretty good, smooth silky and nicely LOW carbonated. Overall, not a great example of the style as there was not enough funk in some areas, too sweet in others and a bit of a mess in yet some more. I will say this though, it may be a decent introductory to someone who has never tried the style as it is mild with many of the different flavors that are usually found in the style.

Poured a brown-ish color with no lingering head to Three Philosphers stemmed wear. Smell is pungently sour upon being poured, vinegar, red grapes, cherry and wood. I think the nose was my favorite part of this. The taste is obviously acidic, very sweet, cherries, red grapes, some oak tannins. the most off putting part is an almost ashtray like flavor, not a fan and very evident. Mouthfeel is like red wine like, minimal carbonation, almost flat like. I enjoy a lot of sours and I think one falls somewhere near the bottom in overall enjoyment.

Bottle purchased from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Shared with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe.

Pours a murky brown hue, with a filmy, acidic-looking head of mild white. Pretty thick body, especially for the style, and the carbonation almost remains static when tilted. Very fine, spotty lacing. Looks flat, thick and a little ominous.

Nose is oddly savoury. Speckled salt and pepper sit above a round balsamic acidity the tends towards sweetness. The sweeter body gives hints of cherries and geranium. Very odd, and a little bit unpleasant.

Taste is maybe a little better. Here there's a woody note, much like an aged balsamic vinegar, but without the biting, cutting tartness that follows. There's a hint of dark grains giving a touch of biscuity sweetness, and a true slightly lactic acidity on the back the sharpen it up. It's pretty odd, again, but it works slightly better here.

Overall, it doesn't really work. It has such weirdnesses to it that aren't integrated or explained with the other characters or as a whole. Probably one of my least favourite sours.

Pours a murky dark, but clear, red colour. Sudsy white head, not much to it at all. Not much lace. Nice colour but otherwise pretty meh.

Chocolatey and Belgian on the nose. Lots of dark fruit and pie/cake spice. Sultanas, dates, figs and nutmeg, cloves. Slight tart note, but all part and parcel of the fruity edge. Intriguing.

Sour, and burnt at times on the palate. Largely a wild yeast note, with characters of currants, black pepper, brown sugar and molasses as well. Clove is big, some carbon and mediciney notes. Weird, a little off-putting at times but there's enough there to like.

Fluid mouthfeel, but a bit thin and a little bite at the end. Don't love it.

Not for everyday drinking; has some nice elements but it doesn't quite have as much balance as others of the style I've had.
