Bottle shared by destructo at his TOSPH. Cloudy copper pour with a white head. Sour cherry notes. I found it to be tart, but somewhat bland.

750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing Sean! Slight acetic, notably brown sour nose. Nice solid, tangy build. Fresh brown malt, with gentle sweetness, that solid cherry character, and light yeastiness. Some soft creamy caramel. Decent balance. The yeastiness goes a little too far. Some of the brown husk of a coconut. Remind me a lot of New Glarus Sour Brown. I’m surprised this is so solid for a sour from a non-sour brewer.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
On tap at the the Bell’s Eccentric Café in Kalamazoo, served in a snifter. Pours hazy caramel brown with virtually no head. The aroma is of sour cherries and oak, along with vanilla and toasted malt. The flavour begins moderately sour and slightly sweet with cherry and fruit; towards the end, it dries out and roasty malts become more prominent. Slight hops are present, along with earth and straw, throughout for accent. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a smooth, silky texture, a slight acidity and no carbonation. Overall, this is a nice sour brown ale, but it is perhaps a bit simple. 2011-08-14

On tap at GTMW 2011, I was looking forward to this one the entire day and oh boy did it deliver, pours a murky brown, the aroma is full of funk and sour notes with vinegar, the flavor has a good amount of fruit mixed in but the tartness is nearly perfect, awesome sour.

On tap. Murky brown pour. Sour aroma with definite wood and vanilla. Tart, woody flavor again with plenty of vanilla and a touch of oak. A touch watery, perhaps, but quite good. Mmmm

Crushed at GABF ’10. Fruit, acid, sour and tart flavors. It’s a sour for sure. Mouth-watering. Another brew I hope I have the satisfaction of trying again.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 On tap at Bells, it is a loverly color, wit a hearty yeasty nose. As a sour, it refreshes with a bit of bite. It is altogether without the normal oily feeling left after other sours. If they sold growlers of the stuff, it would be heaven.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe yesterday. Served in a snifter. Pours a slightly-muddied moderate brown color with a thin tan head. After a few good swirls, a nice head forms and sticks around for a bit. Eventually this falls into a thin collar. The nose is really nice and tart. Mostly lactic sourness with a touch of acetic character and some cherries. Taste is really nice as well, blending a bit of fruit with some lightly-sweet malt and good acidity. Mouthfeel is really nice, balancing sweetness and acid quite well. This was definitely toward the Flanders Red end of the spectrum and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
