The aroma is sour and slightly malty with a hint of fruit. The appearance is light brown with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is probably one of my favorite sour ales but I don’t like sour ales so this one does nothing to change my view.

Bottle. Pours very murky brown. Nose is tart fruit, granny apple and funk. Taste is very funky, sour mash, caramelized granny apple and prune. Interesting.

Thanks to al_b for this bottle.
Aroma:Very similar to a sour beer like Supplication.
Appearance:Black and opaque. Very nice, off-white head. Great lacing, great retention.
Taste:Extremely tart right at the beginning, fading off in the aftertaste. Lemon, apple, persimmon flavors on the foretaste.
Palate:Light to medium body, good carbonation, some harsh astringency.
Overall:I was not expecting this beer to be nearly as sour as it is. This beer would do Jolly Pumpkin proud. It was quite a surprise, and very enjoyable.

Fruity aroma of sour cherries and a touch of malt. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A little bit too sour for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
aroma is a nice mix of roasted nuts, sour dryness, funk, and fruit.
pours brown with minimal beige head.
flavor has a nice mild sourness but is a bit sweet in front, and has a slight malt-vinegar-ness.
medium bodied, finish is sharp and astringent.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Bottle from the brewery. This pours a murky dark brown color that’s topped with a thick fluffy tan head. Damn, this looks nearly black in the glass. Excellent long-lasting head retention that leaves some thick lacing. The aroma resembles a lot of sour funk. Apples, cherries, and a little bit of plum. A slight vinegar scent also sneaks in there. The flavor is a bit strange. A funky and fruity alcoholic sour twang was my first thought with a little grainy roast to it. It tastes like a Sour Ale and Saison hybrid but with some mild roasty elements mixed in. The fruit flavors are cherries and black plums along with red grapes and some blackberries. I admit, at first I wasn’t really digging this but then it definitely grew on me and I thought the stuff was pretty tasty. My rating would not have been as favorable based on just a few ounces, it’s unique, and I think something you need to give a chance.
