3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Draft pour @ Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2009. Cloudy/murky amber/honey colored body. Soft prickly carbonation. Caramel and aged/dried fruit in the nose, similar flavor with a low level of acetic acid, more of a fuzzy/tannic fruit skin character. Good but not great. Sour ale rating #100.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale caramel with little head that left no lacing. The strongest aroma was that of vinegar, followed by orange and yeast. The flavor was not too sour, more of a tart citrus-cherry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler, thanks to WeeHeavySD for saving me some. Pours a clear dark amber with no head. Nice tart fruity aroma, with cherries, citrus, and yeast. Taste is light sour, fruit. Lingering light sourness, a bit watery. Looks like it’s maybe been open too long.

Growler shared by WeeHeavySD at J&J’s Friday the 13th Tasting. Hazy orange color with some white bubbles. Malty, grainy flavor with some cherry and light tartness. Flavor is similar to aroma. Starts sweet, with flavors of citrus and wheat, that ends mildly sour. Fairly simple and straightforward.

Shared same growler from WeeHeavySD’s tasting. Light and fruity nose with light sweet and tart and sour lingering. Hazy orange amber color. Flavor is lightly tart with a clean tart-smack in the mouth for the finish. Yummers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler, from Mr. Scrizz, thanks very much Clint. First beer of what I dubbed the J&J tasting, hosted at my place thrown by me and wetherel. Pours orange with a bubbly tan ring. Nose is tart, slightly sour, and sweet. Taste is sweet, tart and funky. Tasty sour, and glad to have had it, but it looses something.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light funky nose with some fruity notes of orange, strawberry. Bright orange golden pour, hazy with a nice head. Flavors of soft fruity sweetness, funk, medium tartness and sourness. Nice sweet fruity and medium sour combination. Really enjoyable.
