2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at the brewery. It pours a cloudy orange with a small off white head. The aroma has some sweet marachino cherries with strong vinegar and light notes of acetone. Not great. The flavor is a bit throat burning wiht red wine vinegar, littel acetone and berry fruit. Very harsh with overwhelming acetic acid and not something I would want to try again. I hear they have a new barrel manager that’s kicking some butt, so I’m hopeful this will yeild some better results in the sour ale category for them. I love all their other beers though!
