Dark golden color that makes you think you have a Belgian dubbel in your glass. Then the sour hits. A little harsh. Could use more fruit.

on tap at Stone Sour Fest. Orangey golden in color with a modest white top. Very nice tart aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Solid sour flavors very well balanced with rich citrus of apricot, grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Great finish. One of my new favorites of the day.

Sampled at the Stone Sour Fest. Decent aromas of sour cherry and some other fruits. Plum and maybe some grape. Flavor fell off just a bit with a strange aftertaste, but I still really liked it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy orange/brown with elephant skin design froth. Aroma is certainly classy with notes of sour apricot. Flavors were an onslaught of sour but in a very unique rustic approach which tended to be fairly sweet at times but mostly balanced by the sourness There’s a nice solventy funk riding along at all times as well. I think I’m only slightly unsettled by the sweetness...but only slightly...in any event, its a nice funky, solvent-like example and certainly above the average.
