1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap at The Salted Pig. Pours a low haze red amber. Weaker tan foam with spotty lacing. Nose is not good with some DMS notes, frozen vegetable bag, some odd sweet esters like fermenting banana. Taste is sweet and candy heavy up front (odd for style) finishing with paper and mild butyric stomach acid. No clean acid profile. If barrel aged it did not sour at all or at least correctly. Harsh palate wise. Could not finish.

Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours reddish brown with a decent beige head and a slightly sour fruity aroma. There is a thin vegetable-like malt flavor with a sourish brett finish. Would be better with more substance.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy ruddy copper with a foamy light beige head. Aroma is rather red berry. Med + body. Flavor is caramel, red berry and banana ester? Strange. It’s more sweet than sour? I am so conflicted. Well, it is what it is, and I’m not getting a lout of sour here. The malt seems to have managed to stick around. Otherwise, it is actually a fairly tasty ale. Maybe it needs to age for 10 years?

700TH rate! I hate sours. Didn’t know this was one when I ordered it and still don’t know if it is. Draft at alehouse in Denver. Brown pour. Outside so hard to gauge aroma. I got malt caramel maybe barnyard. Taste had nothing remotely sour. It was like a Belgian brown if there is such a thing. I liked. Nice palate

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Happy Gnome. Amber pour with a small head. Slightly sour nose, hits pretty flat and watery on the palate. Kind of a poorly executed sour.

The nose is lightly fruity with some cherry and wood, some clean malt and very light yeast and hops. The flavor is nice and balanced. An amber ale with a lightly tart fruity finish. Clean and balanced

Bottle. Pours a reddish color with white head. Tart cherry, white wine, light vinegar aromas. Sediment, light barnyard flavors. Hmm, not great. Not worth the $12 or whatever I paid.
