Anyone in the Oregon/Washington area that can pick up a couple or three bottles of this, I'm happy to pay or trade handsomely for some. :)

Sounds like a really intense sour (from its few reviews), but there haven't been any new ratings since 2009.

 

If I happen to get lucky and score any, I'll certainly let you know, though, Brian.

You got a problem with that?

Thanks! I love intense sours, so this one piqued my curiosity.

Oh thank god this isn't an absinthe. I couldn't tell from the subject title.

I got to try a glass of this last night.

 

Very winy, fairly sour, with more than a bit of a pucker, but also a little welcome residual sweetness, and a hint of spiciness (from the hops, I believe).

 

Overall, it reminded me of a few of the better Belgian gluhkrieks (spiced cherry ales) I've sampled. It's now four years old, and I think it could stand even more aging, after which it could develop into a real masterpiece, although it's wonderful now.

 

If I can get my hands on a few bottles to age, (and trade, of course), I certainly will.
