COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy orange to copper with minimal white head. Aroma is pronounced tart sour. Taste, acetic sour with some raspberry and cherry notes. The fruit comes through but I can’t tell if they really used any. Seems to be the case. Very dry and some shoe leather notes. Overall, ok American sour that is somewhat all over the place.

A cloudy brown beer with a quickly dissipating beige head. The aroma is wood, vanilla, cherry, and citrus. The flavor is wood and vanilla up front with a very nice tart cherry that intensifies in the finish. Quite sour but also quite delicious.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Josh! Clear ruby red pour with thin to no head, aroma has notes of vinegar, lemon, hints of caramel, toffee, touch of red ripe fruit with some cherry, touch of alcohol and vanilla notes as well, touch of honey. Taste is a nice mix of bourbon, vanilla, some vinegar and lemon notes, touch of bread, hints of caramel, slight red ripe fruits with a hint of bourbon, finishing fairly sweet, slightly sour and dry.

brokensail (11365) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Hazy amber in color with a tall off-white head and high carbonation. An interesting nose. Raspberry, lemon, grass, and leather. A bit of oak and red wine vinegar, maybe some alcohol. The flavor is somewhat acetic and extremely dry. Lots of leather and oak, a bit of grass/straw, and some red wine vinegar. Lightly fruity with some lemon zest and berry notes. As with the nose, a little bit of alcohol heat. Just okay in my book.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle. Some talk about the high price but its worth it. Poured a murky brown color with a smaller white head. Aroma was fruits, sour notes, very malty and funky. Flavor was very sour. I loved the fruits and spice that balanced with the funk and sour notes. Sour, sour finish. Amazing beer
