Draft… RBWG 2013… Clear dirty-orange ale with no head. The nose does provide cherries, but they’re understated and pretty much all I’m able to pull from the glass. Medium-bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is tart and somewhat fruity, but not at all sour. Nice cherry essence. Short, crisp, tangy finish.

On draft at Green Room. Pours a hazy red color with a white head. Nose is some sweet cherry, some tartness, some funk, some malt character. Flavor follows with cherry sweetness, cherry tartness, some funk, and some malt. Strange blend that kind of works. Medium in body and interesting overall.

Tap at Green Room for our final stop at 12 hours of RBWG. Pours a low haze, bright orange. Some pink dye. Nose is acetic acid, sharp red cherry. Taste is cherry juice box, paper, seltzer water. Not a lot of body or even acid to match. Weak palate with abrasive papery character.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Green Room, RBWG. Pours a hazy red with a one finger white head, little head retention or lace. Nose is cherry candy, some lacto and brett, but doesn’t smell super well blended. Flavor shows his to be true--notes of band aid, rubber band, kids marker that smells like cherry, slightly earthy. Better than most NC sours!

Growler thanks to drowland at RBWG. Pours a reddish brown color with thin off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, funk, and some grassiness on the end. Taste follows, light on the cherries and the funk. Pretty solid, but I was expecting a bit more with all the sours I was drinking that day.

Growler at RBWG tasting thanks to drowland, poured a reddish brown color with aromas of light cherries, funk, and some hay. Flavors are the same, light cherreis and light finkyness. Nice beer overall thanks for grabbing this growler.
