kaser (2982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2013
This is their cherry Brett brux sour. Massive cheek pucker. Mouthful of sweet tarts. Had on draft at alpha brewing with the whole kaser family. Really interesting

Braudog (5871) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft sample at the brewery. Murky brown, copper? Thin body (a trend here). Interestingly tart character, more so than sour. Not sure what tamarind tastes like, but this is a relatively empty beer, with not much behind the sour/tart front. Nothing terribly wrong here, other than being very, very thin. (#5226, 8/29/2013)
