2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at TAPS in Petaluma. Pours copper with very little head. Aroma is sweet artificial strawberries with a tart lactic tinge. Flavor is devoid of any tartness, rather it’s basically lactose and fruit juice. Some bready malt backbone to it as well. Misses the mark by a lot.

Stone Sour Fest 2013. Murky amber pour with an off-white head. Nose is onion, banana, and metal up front. Oak, some grass, and really no acidic or acetic qualities. Some sweet caramel is present. The flavor is just as unpleasant. Heavy on the onion and banana notes. Sweet caramel, metal, oak, and some vegetables.

It looks a fine wood, It smells like a fine wood and it tastes like a fine wood. Like a deep mahogany, delicious flavors, I wish there was a bit more sour to its power but the taste that was there was delicious.

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.
