pours a deep red/orange amber with a big foamy head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is bread and tart red raspberries. Flavor is tart red raspberries and cherries. Light medium bodied with a crisp tart finish. This is really good.

got on a trip to Philly at THE beer store. Almost thick syrupy tasting but not really. Afterthroat is a bit syrupy, but I love the initial taste and the fuzz. Def dig it.

Pours amber red with a nice tan head. Head retention is good. Sweet sour, fruity, berry, oak , citrus and malty aroma. Flavors of sweet sour fruit, raspberries/strawberries, slight oak, plum, light pepper, malty and citrus with a nice crisp finish. Definitely a great tasting BA Ale. Looking forward to trying the rest of the Monks Cafe line up.

Old rating...monks cafe label. Brown-red. Sweet malts, cherry, hat, vinegar. More sweet than overpowering sour. Not the best from a usually tasty style.

March madness 2015. Excellent sour ale. There is some malt and a little fruit. This is a superbly balanced beer. Such an interesting style.

March Madness 2015 - My first sour. I am pleasantly surprised. Not really what I would call a beer but it has a nice wine-line fruity flavor. Pretty tasty. Not something I would drink everyday, but very nice for a change of pace.

Pours cloudy reddish brown with a one finger tan head with decent lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits, vinegar, wet hay, cherries, and sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with some winey grape notes and light nutty malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, sweet and sour, medium-long, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty complex sour brown.
