COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flossmoor’s newest sour from the barrel room. A base Leftorium blend aged in white wine barrels with a house wild yeast blend on pomegranates. Available at festivals and on tap at the brewpub. Essentially, a different variation to Flossmoor’s "De Wilde Zuidentrein" series.

Bottle in Chicago with TheAlum. Thanks Adam! Pours a murky orangish brown appearance with a thin tan head. Vinous, berry, vinegar, ligthly acetic, barnyard aroma. Moderately woody, vanilla, raspberry, tangy berry/pomegranate, mild vinegar flavor. Not too bad.

Sampled at RBSG 2010 from notes. Pours amber brown in color with a small disappearing off white head. The aroma has tart fruits favoring pomegranate and cherry, light funk, vinegar, acidic, with a very light white wine character. The flavor is tart fruity, pomegranate, cherry, acidic, vinegar with mild funk. Nothing over the top and very drinkable.

This growler from rbsg #3 poured a extremely small sized head of medium sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a hazy brown colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was brown ale and sour. The dry crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of sour and brown ale. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

A: The beer pours a hazy amber color with a small white head. S: Definitely a nice sour kick to this one. Lots of fruit notes, though it doesn’t necessarily come off as pomegranate. Lots of berry notes with a mild vinegar tartness to go along with some lemon and oak. T: Lots of tart fruits to this with the pomegranate being a bit more obvious. Lightly acetic with some lemon, raspberry, and strawberry notes. There’s a light malt/bread sweetness on the middle part of the sip and finishes with tons of sourness. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. O: The light vinegar note was actually pretty enjoyable and the flavors were solid all around.

Brownish pour. Aroma hits right off with some tart fruit...cherries, pomegranate? maybe a hint. Some light vinous notes and vinegar. Flavor is sour but not puckeringly so. I get some nice wine notes, tart fruit. Damn good beer. Glad to have tried this one!

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2011
RBSG 2010 in Grand Rapids. Deep amber pour. The nose is very lactic and tart. Fresh and fruity with a bright floral character as well. Fairly fresh with a soft sweetness through the middle of the palate. Some dried raisin character but it comes across as somewhat dried out. A kiss of funkiness. Quite an interesting brew.

TheEpeeist (3318) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Unlabeled 22 oz bottle. My rating #1900! Thanks Adam! Lightly fogged brown with a bubble or two. Nose is sour woody cherry or maybe pomegranate; touch of white wine vinegar. Medium light with fine, tongue tickling carb. Taste is toffee, tart red fruit, lemon and oak. Like with the aroma the taste is not quite identifiable as pomegranate with hints of cherry and raspberry. Vinous notes seem to wash away some of the sweetness but still nicely crisp and elegant.

wedgie9 (1860) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Tasted on draft at FoBAB 2010. Pours a muddy brown-orange with no head, but a thin off-white lace collar. The nose is caramel malt, chocolate, grenadine, barnyard funk, and some vinegar tartness. The flavor is very dry and sour with some cocoa, caramel, malty bread, and pomegranate. The body is medium with an oily texture, light carbonation and a long sour pomegranate finish.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Draft sample at FOBAB 2010. I had this early, before it was announced this took the gold in the sour category. Pours a cloudy brown color with red tints and a small head. Notes of butterscotch, honey, balsamic vinegar, tart cherries, lactic acid, and dry funk. The nose is more buttery than sour, but the mouthfeel is more dry and acidic. Medium-bodied. This was a very good sour but not the best of the day- it’s interesting and tasty, but all over the place.
