MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Off orange pour small off white head w/ great lacing. Tart fruits reminds me of a brown ale taste is a bit hard to define but well blended full of subtlety. Avg palate w/ some stickiness. Nice bruin taste w/ a light earty sour note. A very nice well blended wild ale.

(draft @ Bellís Eccentric Cafe - Kalamazoo, MI) Deep copper pour with a very thin white head. Huge tart and sour funky aroma with some very mild fruit and malt notes. Mainly that tart and bitter. Flavor is a huge tart bomb in your mouth. Huge funky and sour notes with just the right amount of sweetness to take it away but it leaves that sour and tart feeling in the sides of your mouth. Phenomenal. Probably in the top 5 sours Iíve ever had.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2010
On tap at the Brick Store. Arrives in a gorgeous Bellís tulip. Deep murky amber brown with a thick beige head with a rocky bottom fed by bubbles constantly. Lacing and retention are fantastic. Aroma is sour with lactic and tart fruits - cherries for sure. Plenty of brown sugar in the nose and some Brett and spicy oak. Whoa, the taste is seriously dry and funky up front. Some tart cherries and brown sugar follow behind. Lots of oak and dry earthy funk in the finish with a hint of lactic as well. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and seriously dry and tart on the palette. Solid carbonation to liven it up. Really impressed with this one. After the Oarsman disappointed I wasnít sure what to expect but this is a great sour from Bellís.

RobertDale (4088) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Sampled at GABF on 9-18-2010. Comes a dark brown/red with a small tan head. Aroma of tart cherries and other fruits. Tastes kind of sour, kind of dry. Not too wild.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 23, 2010
GABF 2009 Sample. Certainly a treat from Bellís--a sour. Very fun to try. This seems to be a new approach for Bellís, and it tastes a little loosely tied together. The complexity is there though and incorporates a diverse array of flavors. If this keeps up weíll have a terrific Midwestern sour thing happening.

arminjewell (8461) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Pours dark brown/red with white head on tap at GLBF. Great tart, cherry, dark fruit, and oak nose. Nice tart beginning in the taste, leads to nice sweet cherry, oak, and finishes dry and funky with more tart. Great intermediate sour, not crazy tart but plenty to keep the palate puckering.

BOLTZ7555 (2938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Sample @ GABF! Hope this one makes it to AZ! 14 karat pour with a orange hue and moderate ivory head. Definitely a sour and a pretty damn good one. Lots of tart, mouth puckering lemon zest along with cherry skin, funk, and grapefruit rind. Also has a vinegar influence. Medium mouthfeel with solid carbonation. Yum!

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Sampled at GABF on 9/16/2010. This sour ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is tart, fruity and cherry. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and tart. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. Tart, not overpowering, but the tartness tends to grow on you some. Nice. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.
