(750ml bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of cherry, barrel, cork, earth, and caramel. Flavor of cherry, lemon, florals, funkiness, earth, and wood with a dry finish.

The pour is a golden orange color with a a tall white head. There’s a light tartness to the aroma that is quite nice. A good fruitiness to it as well as a bit of malt flavor and sweetness. There is a light flavor of Sweet Tarts to the beer as well as some tart pears, lemons, and apples. A little bit of sweetness and a hint of straw and oak. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a mostly lasting frothy white head with good lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, wood and complex fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Cloudy caramel ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes peach, fallen apricot, oak and gloriously funky barnyard notes. Medium-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. Nicely soured. The fuzzy fruits really dance here. Lightly sweet, but quite puckering as well. Finishes tart, fruity and mildly dry. World class effort!

750ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized off white head. Manure (everything was smelling like manure in Mike’s basement tonight), vinegar, green apples, earth, and funk. Damn Eric for saying pickle juice.

Yellow-orange coloured body with some head. Just delightful summer day beer, with some oak, spice, almost cherry tartness. Full mouthfeel. Suitably carbonated, a little aging helped. Thanks WomanCan’tSail. Very good drinkability.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Cherry and white grape fruitiness precedes this Sour Ale’s lactic sourness for an easygoing, quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam surfs the cloudy dull amber.
-The prickling carbonation remains easy on the tongue.
-The flavor profile might be linear, but it is quite pleasant and very drinkable for a sour brew.
-Fruitiness is also quite citrusy (bacteria).
-The oak barrel character is well balanced and harmonious with the rest of the wild flavors.

Bottle. Thx for sharing, Eric!

Bottle thanks to GRG1313 (and I also have one in a trade thanks to tytoanderso). Pours with a hazed golden body with a small white head. Aromas are floral, estery, rose water, sour, stone fruit and lemon juice. Acid more than funk on the nose. Flavors are sour, strong acid, lemon, floral and medium tannin. Very light funk. Lively bubbles, dry and mouthpuckeringly tart.

Ginger-y and spicy smell. The flavor is tart and acidic, nice dryness. Some spice and earthiness. Plenty of sourness. Pretty delicious.
