Adambier is a rare, very dark German-style sour ale with toast, smokey and caramel-like malt aroma & flavors and low-moderate hop character and bitterness masked somewhat by extensive lactic acidification and wood-aging.

Really interesting mix of common beer tastes that aren’t usually together. Sour and smokey and bitter with caramel and chocolate but not at all sweet. Thank you sir, may I have another?

Bottle to tulip. Ruby brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, wood, and sour apples. Taste is rotten dark fruit, sour apple, oak, and blackberry brandy. Somewhat sticky and sours more as it fades.

Tap at Jacs. Deep unfiltered brown body. Creamy beige head, a little patchy. Oily soured dark malt aroma. Red wine, vinegar tones. All around oily and devolved. Caramel, mild smoke, cherry syrup. Cherry vinegar. Tastes like a failed experiment.

Bought at Lizardville in Akron. Pours a very deep reddish brown with a small offwhite head. Aroma is tart dark fruits, slight burnt malts, and wood barrel. The taste is tart dark fruits like cherry, blackberry, and black raspberry. Add in some roasted malts and caramel with a finish of light acidity and tartness. Smooth low carb. Great flavor and finish.

Lactic sour aroma and flavor. Woody. Has a slight odd metallic flavor but it is slight. Mostly lactic sourness maybe 4 of 10. Has some woody fruitiness to it. Quite nice sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour split. Pours a dark reddish orange color with a fading head. Dark fruit, wood, and caramel malt aroma. Very unique sour. Thick creamy body with a lot of caramel candy like flavor and some dark sour fruit. Good, sour sipper for me. Good stuff.

Garnet/mahogany pour with a small eggshell head. Beautiful combination of sweet, sour, and acidic...very drinkable. Hint of smoke, moderate toffee, smidge of char, touch of tart. Enjoyed this one.

Not the best sour from Destihl. This one’s funk flies under the radar and is covered up to a degree by its pretty powerful sweetness. Not bad. Courtesy of Dave.
