UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Deep red. Aroma is a sour smell. Taste is sour sweet in balance, zing, lovely and drinkable. Palate is clean with a lingering sherbert. Overall, great malty sour here.

On draught at the Blind Tiger. Arrived a deep lightly hazed red with a thin off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of mild wine vinegar, malt, cherry and oak. The flavor is sour but not excessively so and is complimented well by some lovely malt, cherry, and oak. Bright, well rounded and luxurious on the palate. Excellent.

Has a good tart aroma with a pretty sour taste. Not much to the taste besides sour, but it’s really good.

[bottle from LCBO]
Sour, vinegary aroma with a little pickle juice and ethyl acetate and lots of fruits; complex. Crystal clear mahogany under a lacy, off-white, shiny cover. Sour flavour up front with a touch of vinegar and then cherries as well as some red life savers. A touch of sweetness follows the sour, that may be a bit of back sweetening--hard to tell for sure. Complex fruity accents include sour grapes. Light body, moderate carbonation, mouth watering sour finish.

Pours deep red with no head. Aroma of raspberry, plum, balsamic vinegar, wood, funk. Taste is very tart up front, with light sweetness and astringency following. I’m not big on sours but this one is really nice.
