Not the most sour offering, but very well balanced. If you're going to introduce someone to sours this is a great bet.

Interesting beer and worth a taste, but it certainly not something that I would ever select just looking for a beer to enjoy. It is very sour and certainly has a wine-ish flavor; the beer is aged in Pinot noir barrels after all.

This ale is aged in wine barrels and, as such, has a strong wine overtones. This one tastes more like wine and less like beer, to me. If you enjoy wine, you'll like this. If not...

Nice artisan treat, but a little sour for me...which is fine because that's what it's supposed to be. Glad I tried it

After a Mosher pour, not much head. Aroma: apple cider, almost Spanish cidrerias. Color: light copper. Flavor: wow, sour sour sour! WAY more than Reidy's Berliner Weiss. Pucker the lips at touch, and it's puckery all the way down. Food thing it's a small bottle. For a first real sour though, not bad. After a few more sips, if it were just a touch sweeter, I would be back at Etxcheberria in Donostia!! Gora las sidrerías!

Sour ale that has a hint of berries and Pinot noir from the casks. Delicious and sweet.

First experience with a sour. Just not my style. Very niorish in flavor. Wine lovers would enjoy this.

Too fruity. Cherries.

My first experience with a sour. Different, winey, lots of flavor. At $11 a bottle, I probably won't get another.
