3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Oceanside. I never would have guessed that it was such an unusual combination of mead and ale, it tastes similar to a Flanders Red/Brown Sour aged in oak. Poured in a tulip glass, nice red/brown appearance with a slight head. Aroma of cherry, oak, vanilla, vinegar. Nice balance of sweet, sour, and slight bitter, earthy and vinous. Clean finish, perfect oak character, I’ll have another.

"A little on the lite side in all aspects, but a flavorable, sessionable sour brown ale that was enjoyed by all. Cherries, amalt and a lactic sourness on the nose and palate. Cool surprise."
