On tap at fobab. Glad I finally got to try this one. Pours a reddish brown with a slight white foam head. Aromas of sour dark fruits, overripe strawberries. Taste is sour but incredibly drinkable. Loved this stuff.

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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2009
GABF 2009. Pours a hazy medium amber with a light beige head. Aroma smells like wild berries and mild funk. Lighter side of medium bodied. The flavor really captures the flavor of wild berries, with a light maltiness in the background. The sweetness is just right, so that the controlled tartness can play into the mix. Acetic traits are tame, in a good way. I like this because it’s not thick sour bomb. Excellent, and extra points for getting the "wild" berry flavor into the beer, something I have never experienced before. It reminded me of when my grandfather and I would go berry picking along the country roadsides.

sample from the pitcher at GABF on 9/26/09... Really nice Sour from Bells! I was really excited to see them pouring this one.... and it was one of the only ones left at their booth... pours a murky golden brown... sour citrus nose... some funk on the nose as well... light to medium body... nice tart finish. very enjoyable.

madvike (3183) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2010
On tap at Maduro’s - Pours rosy amber with a small off-white head. Tart and funky on the nose, with some citrus--lemon mostly. Pretty smooth. Taste is balsamic vinegar, light oak, and a bit of orange rind. Fantastically easy-to-drink. Not too tart, but funky enough. Stole a bunch of my buddy’s pour cause I liked this so much.

GABF 2010, one of my favorites of the week, brown red pour. aromas of tart cherry, funk. taste is sharpe cherry tartness, sour funk, a good sense of mouth puckering. everything seemed to blend just right here. very good

Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Festival 2010. This is the last thing from this fest that I can actually decipher notes from. Bright funky aroma. Lactic tartness and a bit of light cherry fruitiness. Softly funky with a little bit of light earthiness. Really soft and fruity. Intensely funky. A touch of vineous character. Very tasty.

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!
