From notes. First reviewed 8/29/2011. Served on tap in a cervoise at the Great Taste of the Midwest. My pour is an amber raspberry color with a delicate fluffy white head. The head bubbles away, but a little bit of lace sticks on the side of the glass. Lots of lactic sourness and some Brett in the nose. Some cherry notes, and a little bit of musty oak as well. This is a good example of what I look for in a sour mash beer. Some light sweetness up front, but the flavor becomes progressively more sour. Tart and refreshing, with lactic acid undertones and a general berry fruit sour flavor. The finish has a light, lingering sour flavor. The carbonation is on the lighter side, but combined with the sour flavor, it has some zing to it. Crisp, a little bit vinegary, and refreshing. Medium bodied. I was impressed by Bell’s wild ale venture. With the flurry of beers served at this event, it was hard to sit down and really enjoy it, but I hope to be able to have it again.

Got to try this thanks to Dave S. Pours a really nice amber color with very little head. Smells fantastic, Oak, red wine, leather, plums, vinegar. Flavors are very nice and follow suit with the aromas. I wish i could drink this every day!

Pours a rich mahogany with almost no carbonation. Reminds me of a chardonnay. Smells funky kind of like RR consecration. The taste is muted compared to the nose, not very sour but has a very nice tartness to it. I taste a lot of dark (pit) fruit in this. I think this beer is fantastic for what it is, I just wish it had more of a bite (Sourness)! Regardless this is a fine beer and I can’t wait to see what time does to it.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 À la pompe au pub: Odeur de grange. Goût surette mais peu sucré avec un courant citronné. Bon support du malt caramel.

kevinsenn (1600) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
On tap at Bells Eccentric Cafe. Weak aroma of sour cherries. Foggy brown, with little to no head, looks delicious in a snifter. This beer is SOUR! Definitely the most sour ale I’ve had. Pretty good.

Had side by side with with raspberry wild one. Get a little bit of the brown ale with a little funk. My sour palate must be too advanced for this one. Very lightly sour of at all. Much better out of the bottle than this time on tap. May revisit it later

Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a cloudy reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart cherries and some funk. Medium body with a moderately sour fruit character and notes of yeast, oak and malt. The finish is fruity with a tart cherry aftertaste. Above average overall.

750 mL bottle shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Bottle 88 of 370, batch K10596. Pours a clear amber color with a medium creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of huge lemon notes as well as other citrus, some earthy notes and caramel malts. The taste is earthy notes, plums, citrus, cranberry, cherry and a slight vegetal note. Tart throughout. High carbonation, medium bodied and extremely drinkable. I was excited to try this and it exceeded my expectations. Very, VERY well done Bells.

Kinz (3567) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Richmond 17th. Medium amber, slight head. Aroma is lightly sour, lightly fruity, and a nice hit of funk. Flavor is a match, but the intensity really goes up. Really, really nice. Favorite of the day so far.

Butters (3991) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the Richmond 17th Gathering. Bottle 88 of 370 of batch k10596. Clear amber pour with good white head. Sour acidic nose kinda reminiscent of gingerale. transfers to the flavor very nicely, some ginger, some raspberry/cherry/plum sourness. Also like sweettarts candies. Very good, but not the best i’ve had.
