2012 bottle, 22oz. Murky dark pink pour, little head. Aromas of wood and fruit. Taste is very tart and dry. Flavors of tart blackberry jam with some woody pie crusts. Nice. Wonder if it dried out in the bottle a bit or if it was brewed this dry. Very lactic, slightly funky. Very tart. I like this a lot.

2009 Bottle - Thanks for popping this Toby! - Pours a ruddy orange with a medium white head...aroma is cherry and lemon, oaky, phenolic...flavour is bone dry, lactic red fruit, more lemon...more reminiscent of a belgian lambic than a sour, to me at least...finish is tannic and tasty...

On draught at Belmont Station. Reddish golden color. Aroma is cherry, berry, tart funky yeast, light vinegar, white wine, and oak. Taste is sweet and sour cherries and blackberries, pungently tart yeast, white wine, and wood. Gary tickle in the mouthfeel, really balanced sour fruit and yeast finish.

22 oz bottle, 2009 version sample December 2010:gushes on cap removal...I barely manuvered the bottle over the glass, losing just a few drips and bubbles. Pours with a thick, billowy & fluffy off white head that loudly and quickly diminishes...strong, funky barnyard aroma is immediately noticeable...with notes of oak and lightly charred wood. Lively palate, though not overly so as I was expecting. Clean...while being fairly tart. I imagine there used to be light fruit, but that has faded to be replaced by yeast and nice bitters. Long, leathery and funky finish. This holds true to a great farmhouse ale, though I would classify as a sour...either way, nice.

22oz bottle. Bottled January 09. Musty aroma. A slight bit of wet wood. Lactic and acetic acids. Tannic fruit pits. Yogurt-y. A slight spiciness... cinnamon maybe? Pleasant, but not a whole lot aroma-wise. Pours a cloudy peachy/orange/pink with a thin ring of white. Flavor exhibits a lot more character than the aroma. Lots of acetic and lacto. Barrel and fruit tannin as well. Quite dry on the tongue. Lively carbonation. Lots of lacto on the sides of the tongue with a very pleasant acidic finish. Not overly complex, but everything works very well for this one. Highly drinkable sour for sure. Thanks Kan!

Growler from the Johnís Creek Beer Growler. Dark ruby colored, with a lot of carbonation, but no head. The aroma is distinct red wine, with some notes of pine, caramel, and coriander. The flavor is strong and unflinchingly tart, with a little backbone of fruity sweetness. Medium body, a little sticky, acidic, and very lively on the tongue. Overall, this is a well-made, well balanced, and very aggressive sour ale.

Huge thanks to Fear025. Bottle pours red with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of tart berries, oak, light caramel, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of vanilla, leather, and tons of lactic goodness. Overall, probably my favorite of the 3 sisters, and very well balanced. I only wish I had some more.

í12 bottle from a BA trader - thanks! Pours a murky copper with an orange hue with no head. Aroma is lightly tart with berries, clean oak, a but of sour suggesting lemon, and balanced acidic sour. Taste is tart fruit with sour and lemon and a bit of red wine flavor before even more sour and tart through the finish. Slight vinegar aspect but itís considerably dialed back and much more in balance than what you typically find in sours from the Bruery and Cascade. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. I am very impressed - excellent sour.

2010 Bottle; Pour is slightly cloudy strawberry in color - Fizzy white head initially , but it does dissipate rather quickly, and simply rings this snifter in a mild way. Spices and blackberries on the nose, with a Belgian yeast note that isnít quite Belgian, to me. I find the aroma to be the strong suit of this brew. On the tongue, there is a certain crispness from the carbonation that lingers through the finish. It is sweet, to be sure, and has a sour feel, but I suppose it isnít what I want it to be. Blackberries, Strawberries, Oak, and a very slight spiciness rounds it out.
