11th taster @ Stone Sour Fest 2008. Pours a dark, burnt orange with an off white head. Nose was of both sweet and sour citrus. Flavor was much of the same with a bit of saltiness?........Overall pretty damn good.

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.

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.

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 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Stone’s Sour Fest 2008. My last taster of the fest. I almost skipped this one. I heard from several people that the Deschute sours weren’t that good, then DarkElf said this was his favorite of the fest, so I thought I should try it. I think DarkElf was right. Reminiscent of Alpine Briscoe. Dark yellow color. Lots of acetic sourness. Leans sweet. Excellent. 4.3-4.4.
