flatmatt (1316) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2015
On tap at MBGSF 2015. Amber pour with an off-white head. Sour candy aroma, berry. Great sour, tart berry, a SweetTarts candy sensation. A great one.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours darker amber mostly unclear with a beige head. Aroma is light tart and refreshing malt and yeast. Body is low on carb but balanced well with a tart flavor that ends so nicely and smoothly on the palate.

Bell’s The Wild One is quite the enigma. Lots of complexity but with a major drawback. Murky brown pour with a nice foamy head. Lots of aroma of sour fruit. Taste is a complex combination of stone fruit, oak and wine with a solid sour quality that unfortunately fades into a strong vinegar aftertaste (for me) that lasts for HOURS. This one will definitely appeal to sour-heads. While I can appreciate The Wild One, it is too wild for me.

Strykzone (5899) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Draft at ITAP Soulard during a StL Craft Beer Week tap take over. Call this brown for lack of anything better. A beige head. This is a very drinkable sour. It brings funk, but it is moderate at best. Wood, bugs, bark, cherries and more dark fruit. Really nicely understated. Malts are pleasant. Berries and plums. Nice complexity. I like this. It does not eat your face off but it is a very enjoyable beer.

Draft. Vinegar, yeast, cherry, malt, and straw aroma. Cloudy orange-brown with small head. Initially a sour vinegar flavor followed by sweet cherry, malt, and straw flavor. Yeast aftertaste. Very nice.

Imaena (2126) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUL 22, 2015
Draught. This is a nice sour with a bit of sweetness and some nuttiness going on in the finish.

RBAG, 2015. Sample takjen from a 750ml brown bottle. Brown and unclear looking, small patchy head. Some acidic notes in the nose, sour, some vinegar. Taste has lemon, acid, sourness, tart dark fruit. Good.

Ferris (8949) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle - Light cherry and balsamic tartness. Cloudy copper with a decent white head. Nice light tartness, cherry and a nice finish. Well done.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2015 by Kevin, bottle 714 of 826. Burnt orange colour, sour cherries and funk, with a bit of metal on the nose that doesn’t translate to the palate thankfully. Sour fruits, light toffee malts, yoghurty sourness. Closest in style to a Flemish sour brown.
