6 oz draft at Brouwers Cafe Sour Fest in Seattle, Washington. Pour is ruby and brown, mostly clear with a one inch white head - very pretty in the glass. Aroma of soft floral tartness and mango fruit. Very delicate nose. Taste is full, apricot and mango fruit, tart yeastiness, and a slightly honey sweet sticky finish. Tart lemony, really superb. I really enjoyed the interplay between the delicate nose and the full flavor.

egajdzis (5335) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Poured a hazy reddish gold color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, red grapes, green apple, vanilla, wild yeast, and toasted oak. Taste of winey grapes, some caramel, green apples, toffee, citrus fruits, vanilla oak, and a wild, mildly acidic, but tart finish. Thanks to Jon for the Cascade beers.

Bottle @ Saraveza... Poured amber with an off-white head. Sweet aroma of a wild yeast character. Well carbonated and really dry palate. Light fruit -- like apples / berries / or even maybe bananas -- Very light and refreshing and insanely drinkable. Had a great tart finish.

100th Sour Rating!! 750ml generously brought to San Diego by Suzy Greenberg, Thanks Ben! and shared with me and my girlfriend Cyn and his friend Justin. Pours orange with a tan head. Nose sweet and funky and definetly yummy portend. Mild sour, but very very drinkable and full of sweetness Overall I like this, its not super in your face but it is exceptionally smooth and drinkable.

Pours a deep dark ruby/cherry red color with burgundy/mahogany edges and a two finger frothy beige head that quickly subsides. Not much in the way of lacing. Tart earthy funk aroma with a strong vinous presence as well as a lot of dark fruit, especially sour dark cherry, vinegar and oaky tannis. Soft carbonation up front that lingers into a slightly vinegary, vinous mothfeel that is a bit flatter and syrupy. Nice balance of tartness and earthy oaky tannis as wel as some dark fruit notes coming from the estery Belgian yeast. Pretty vinous with hints of grape, tart dark cherry, plumand raisin. I cam surprisingly really taste the trpel characteristics of the blend. The ABV is excellently masked making this beer dangerously drinkable. Slightly puckering but not acidic at all. Very good and highly recommended!

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2010
Hmm, where to start? This stuff is awesome - sour, of course, but a lot nuance, as well. Some woody notes, some citrusy, lemony flavors, non dominate but all play a part. At the risk of sounding selfish, I was a little bit pissed I had to share it with the rest of the Tennessee crew (I kid, I kid...)

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2010
Short-lived beige head over faintly hazed (end of bottle fully yeasty) foxy-red beer. Light-sourish cherry nose, intensely fruity, perfumed. Very woody, fusely, and fruity flavour with obvious lactic acid. Fruit again reminiscent of (sour) cherries. Very tart, wry finish and aftertaste. Dry, even dry-out effect. Spritzy, lipsmacking acidity, long-lasting with yeast-notes in the aftertaste. Very good, equilibrated sour ale. Thanks a mill, DonS!

PIB 2008. Pours light amber with a soft white head. Really amazing beer, delicious tart/sour finish, dry funkiness, soft citrus notes, light cheese note in the funk. Really came together nicely.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2009 Tap in Seattle, July 11 ’08.

(From an old pile of notes) Gorgeous caramel brown with a lovely near-white head, lots of oak on the nose, woody with complex brown sugars. Incredible, incredible flavor, with the oak totally integral and yet never overbearing. Only a mild vinegar sourness despite the serious depth; tart like brown sugar in grapefruit. Truly a great beer! 9/5/9/4/17=4.4

Bottle, 6/29/09. this guy was nowhere close to the 4.4 that it was on tap. Not that’s not enjoyable -- I was more than happy to down a 750 over the course of the evening -- but just that it is a mismatch of elements rather than a perfectly synchronized machine. I’d go 3.9 or so for this one, so I’ll average accordingly.
