Deep amber brew, slight head. Nose is slightly sour with dark fruit, oak, and leather. Lively and full bodied - flavor is cherry, wood, vinous. Delicious TX brewed sour, glad I grabbed a couple to age.

My first Freetail sour....
Pours a dark, weak coffee brown with a fine sheet of light tan foam. Smells like tart, dark grape juices, some currant, a little oak, some leather and balsamico. Lovely nose. Nice and sour with cherry, grape, and raisin. Some oak, some sugar, a little bit of tobacco leaf. Light bodied balanced well with the slight sweetness and medium carb with a watering finish. I really, really enjoyed this beer. Would love to have more.

Dark and barrely; dates and other dark fruits blend with a strong port wine kick. Healthy amount of sourness before finishing oaky and dry. Another tasty sour from Freetail.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear, orangey brown with a rich, creamy and lacing beige cappuchinoish head. Tart balsamico aroma, combined with some sweet vanilla oak. Medium-bodied, caramel initially but then a complex tart red wine balsamico note sets in. Not bad if not the most complex of its sort. 081114

Pours like a nice black cup of joe in color with a bit of a soapy head. Slight aroma of soil and clay. Nice tangy sour on the palate that finishes dry. Overall a solid brew...

Rated based on notes taken 3 Nov 2012 -- On tap at the Dia de la Muerta release party at the Brewery! Great Sour. It’s important to note that Freetail produced the first sours that I tried. I’ve come a long way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap flight at the brewery. Brown colored pour with a red hue and a medium lacing white head. Aroma of lightly aged balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar. Taste is slightly sour but not at all funky or overpowering. Reminiscent of a less sweet Duchesse De Bourgone. Clean finish. A refreshing sour and good for noobs to the style. Bartender says this must have mellowed because it was really sour a month and a half ago. Well done.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. brown bottle purchased at the brewpub. Poured into a tulip. It looks dark brown as it pours and almost black in the glass. Aroma has cherries(a lot), a little lemon, and some vinegar but not much. A really good aroma. The taste is strongly acidic in a vinegar sort of way, cherries, and what seems like a wine barrel character. An acetic forward sour. It almost burns at the back of the throat. The taste is a definite dropdown from the aroma. Not really my cup of tea or I mean glass of beer

poured deep brown with minimal head. smell and flavor of sour malt, lemon peel, cabernet sauvignon, and wine barrel. Nose had a hint of instant hot chocolate powder. Not my favorite by freetail, wouldnt seek this one out again
