At a tasting, thanks DSG, stable bubbly head, cloudy murky deep orange color, soury fruity aroma with some oakiness, strong piercing fruity sourness, lemon like, and a light oakiness. Not too complex but great fun to drink.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Hazy orange. Lovely funky and fruity aroma, somewhat vinous, with some oak and sweat. Puckering sour flavor, vinous, oaky, with fruits (some strawberry), funk and lactic touches. MEdium-bodied. Leaves the mouth very dry. Really good.

375ml bottle pours a pale reddy brown color without any head. Mild strawberry and medium sourness. Overly carbonated so as a bit of a soda taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle thanks to bytemesis! Pours semi clear red with small fizzy head. Nose is ripe juciy berry and some toasty wood funk, soft vinous fruit. Taste is crisp juicy tart strawberry, some sour cherry, soft round oaky funk, well balance acidity. Finishes with jammy strawberry, light sweetness, dry oak, and some light rustic funk. Delicious, these guys do strawberry sours better than most.

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber light nut brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet, strawberries, cider. Flavor is quite sour, more than you’d expect from the aroma. Oily on the palate, lingering tartness in the finish. Nice dusty find at Plaza Market.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
General sour smell. Taste is pretty general sour too. I taste some faint tart strawberry, but this definitely doesn’t scream strawberry to me. Low carbonation and medium body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extra from VanJamer, thanks! Pours a pretty clear copper with a thin offwhite head that dissipates almost as soon as it appears and leave no lacing (ends up really cloudy by the end of the bottle). Nose is indeed of fruits, strawberries if you want to believe, but mostly of vinegar and reminescent of the nice american red sour beers out there. Taste is really acidic and dry. Not much fruit flavors there except for the same fruity acetic the nose would suggest. It isn’t over the top but ever so close... Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate. Acidity is really refreshing but this isn’t a novice beer, really. Some oak but no wine in sight.. . A touch hard to drink in any significant quantity because of the hardcore acid but I did enjoy it a bit anyway. Not so sure about the Almanac sour program, though...
