GABF2009 - hey, Bells can do a sour ale! - moderately acidic and acetic, with mild leathery funk to go along with it - some fruity notes compliment the vinegar-ish qualities - quite dry, without much of the base malts detectable - more lacto than brett here - a tiny bit salty on the end - decent.

BPW #38 Served on tap at Kalamazoo Brewing Co./Eccentric Café. Appearance is faded orange brown. The flavors and aromas are a sweeter sour with some peach and nectarine. The palate is a mild sourness with a light puckering feel.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #45 of 90 (OHHHHH, we’re halfway there!!!). On tap at the Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo. Pours cloudy amber brown. Has a sour, dry fruit taste. A lighter version of this style and very nice. A very good sour taste. If you’ve tried a sour and it was just too much for you, try this one. I’d consider it a ’gateway’ sour ale.

Tmoney99 (10681) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2009
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.

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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2009
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 isn’t actually that sour to begin with. I don’t like the quick, somewhat watery body either.

Tried at ’09 Stone Sour Fest. Malty and mellow. Acidity is low. Not sweet or dry. Handbottle with low carbonation. Pretty nice.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2009
On tap @ Bells. Hazy darkish amber color, very little head. Nice aroma with slight acetic notes and some cherry-like fruitiness. Mildly tart taste, some fruity, nice sweet-tart finish.

Ughsmash (7138) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2009
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 didn’t 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.
