3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Cafe.
Poured clear brown color with an average creamy white head that mostly diminished with minimal lacing. Moderate prune, funk yeast and earthy aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate duration.
I would recommend this as very good beer and for style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the eccentric cafe. Hazy red with small head. Aroma is sour/tart cherries with sweeter grapes, slight lacto, a light woody quality (oak?). Flavor is sweeter cherries and grape with tart earthiness, slight sour, lacto yogurt flavor, oak. Medium, creamy body. Pretty nice and refreshing but slightly unrefined, I can dig it though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Pours a murky, deeper red-orange colored body with a thin, creamy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves only a light lacing. Aroma is sweet with some lightly tart cherries and a subdued sourness. Only a light funk and oaky smell to it. Flavor is forward based and really dies at the end. Sweet with more lightly tart cherries, a light oak, and no malt presence. Light bodied with a light crispness at the end. Actually somewhat watery once the flavors drop out. Overall, not a lot of depth to this sour, which isnít actually that sour to begin with. I donít like the quick, somewhat watery body either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured deep amber with a well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet and sour cherry dust, buggy funk, and spicy oak over a sourdough base.. tangy with a nice dark funk. Tangy cherries and oak dominated the flavor with a substantial funky Brett and lacto impression.. malts really didnít matter here.. sour fruit and oaky finish. Medium-bodied with lots of carbonation on the palate.. dry and bracing, but the sourness really built as the drink progressed. Tasty stuff.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. This was the most enjoyable of what as available on tap today. Most drinkable. Darkish brown with a minimal head. Good sourness, balanced, Brett comes through and added to the complexity of the sourness as well as the absolute level. Lace appears as you drink it. White wine is detected. Medium mouthfeel.

Stone Sour Fest hand bottle from Seaoflament. Thanks Carlos for a number of shares. Hazy dark copper. Nose is dark fruit, especially raisins, prune. Alcohol and brown sugar leap out as well. Taste is much lighter than nose. Fruity and tart.

Hell yeah, finally getting to try this one, big props to seaoflament, carlos for bringing a handbottle of this to sour fest today. Poured rich brown with a tan ring. Nose is light and tart. Taste is quite strange, vegetally and tart, weird one.
