RobertDale (4187) - 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 Bell’s--a sour. Very fun to try. This seems to be a new approach for Bell’s, and it tastes a little loosely tied together. The complexity is there though and incorporates a diverse array of flavors. If this keeps up we’ll have a terrific Midwestern sour thing happening.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, 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 (2958) - 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 (5338) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 Deep purple pour. No head. Aroma of huge cherry, tart currant, leaves, and oak. Phenomenal. Flavor of sour funk, cherry skin, lemon rind. Beautiful oaky finish. It ranks up there with some wonderful sours
