just had a wee small bit of this at sour fest. my hand writing went down hill by this point as well. pours a clear golden. light watery grassy hay fruit note. some light wine presence. some at our table thought this smelled like a porta potty,maybe more of a moldy airfreshener presence. okay.

WA Belgianfest. Sad to say that this was my first taster (I go for sours) and the biggest disappointment of the evening. Pours brown orange with minimal beige head. Aromas of wine and other alcohols. Tastes primarily of merlot and brett. Couldn’t really taste the sour at all. Think they tried to do too much

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 Draft at Belgianfest. This was a surprise favorite for me, and I really wish I had this one available to me more. This was listed as "Anacortes Sour Brown" on the program, so hopefully I’m entering under the right entry here. Red brown pour. Aroma is a bit of almost chocolatey toastiness and maltiness with dried cherry and a sour tang coming through. The flavor is bold, subtle, and balanced. The sour is a distinct component, but doesn’t dominate. Has a dark, slightly toasty malt flavor and a sweet, brown sugar presence. Some dark dried fruits and cherry. The wine and wood come through well on the finish, as well as the spicy Belgian yeast.

Lovely. Brownish red pour, notes of dark fruits, light sour cherries, light hints at wood, delicate hints of sour towards the finish, and above all, the merlot tannins are absolutely amazing in this brew. Supposedly an accident we’ll never see again, this one was amazing. Medium bodied, malty, somewhat smooth down the throat...if there’s any left at the brewery - GET IT!

Draft at BEVERIDGE PLACE BODACIOUS BEVERAGES BREWFEST ’09. Pours a hazy dark gold with white head. This has great citrus aroma that carries over to the nice sour flavor. The lemon and grapefruit are balanced nicely with sweet vanilla. Pretty tasty sour.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Draft pour @ Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2009. Appearance: cloudy peach, thick, syrupy legs, soft carbonation. Nose: Soft lactic peaches, fuzzy. Sugar and herbs, corn syrup develops with temperature (ugh!) Texture: Oily and filmy but frothy and thick up front but falls apart quickly across the palate. Flavor: Spritzy lavendar honey and acetic apple cider and corn syrup. Overall: Mediocre.

after4ever (6166) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe’s Sourfest. Cloudy bright medium amber with a thin gray foamy head. Tons of sheety lacing. Big tart lemony saurkraut nose. Creamy medium body with active carbonation. Lemons, cherries, and saurkraut on the mid-palate, along with a bit of a carbonic bite.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2009
On tap at Rockfish Grill. Enjoyed a snifter with my girlfriend while watching some band who’s front man thought he was Dave Matthews. Aroma is moderately tart with a touch of funk followed by cidery notes and what used to be sweet underlying malt, sugar, and spice notes which reminded me of a Belgian Strong or a Tripel. Poured hazy golden with a thin head. The flavor is cidery with apple tartness, banana, and spice. Medium sour barrel notes throughout as well as that BSA or Tripel I spoke of earlier. Body was almost syrupy and the booze in the finish detracted from the mix of tartness, fruit, and light funk. More or less a soured strong ale.
