3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach for Sour Fest. Pours a clear red with medium foam and thick, sheets of lacing. Nose is mushroom and dusty attic at first moving eventually to fresher Brett B, berries, some bourbon or dark alcohol barrel. Taste is cedar/Brett B, must, raspberries. Finishes with a bit of a papery astringency, but it is not so bad. Overall pretty nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Maxs. Unfiltered orange-red-brown. Creamy fading off-white head. Soft on the palate, nice sour cherry tones, almost biting..but with a pleasant mellow brown malt backdrop. Slight hard to session, puckering. A touch of woodiness. Not at all like the regular version. A decent, mellow sour beer.
