Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2012, dark reddish pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of funky red grape, slight lactic and tart notes, hints of berry, tart fruits, slight caramel and toffee, hints of vanilla as well. Taste is a mix of tart berries, funky dusty basement notes with a fairly lactic middle, slight earthy tones finishing fairly tart. Decent, but a bit simple.

Steve_0 (2523) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Tap at 3rd Annual Boulder SourFest (06-02-2012). Poured a glowing orange with no head. Aroma is wood, tannin, funk, and brett. Taste follows the aroma with hints of sour funk, wood, cherry, grape, and some alcohol. Tastes better than it smells and the body is medium with high carbonation. Not bad.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap @ Avery SourFest III. Orangish/red appearance with an off white head. Somewhat vinous, sweet malty, lightly spicy, a bit fruity, boring aroma. Some fruit in the flavor (grape, plum, citrus) but it was quite boring and didnít have that many redeeming qualities.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2012
draft. has the same Cabernet and Zinfandel barrel influence and strong esters of most of their other blended sours (froot loops, tropical fruits, maraschino cherry, canned pear) with some Chardonnay flavor, acid and effervescence, which seems to suit the body well.
