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.

tulip. beige color kind of cloudy tall head may be about three fingers but die very quick. Earthy aromas, cilantro, cranberries, and biscuit dough. Taste is very heavy sour up front, a lot of dark fruit syndromes, with infestations of yeast and some mint hints. Dry finish

Bottle @ THE Sour and Saison Tasting. Cheers to Leighton for the pour! The pour’s a deep reddish amber color with a medium head. The nose is herbal hop, garden patch, some ketchup and sea salt. The taste is mild balsamic reduction, bramble, some raspberry bakery tart. Mild sugary cookie. Medium acetic tartness on the long finish. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, pretty solid work.

Bottle shared by jmagnus87...thanks Josh! - Pours hazy roasy amber with a ring of light tan head. Nose is cherries and a light breadiness. Fairly tart. Taste is pretty tart with cherries, a touch of vinegar, some stone fruit, and bready malt. A bit cheesy. Well-carbonated with a fluffy body.

Thanks Matt! Hazy, ruby red color; minimal head/lace.

Oaky as hell. So much barrel; borders on too much barrel. Dark cherries. Fruity blend with oak, soured grain, yeast. I prefer #3, I still love this.
