Was so very pleasantly surprised upon a brewery visit to find them heading down this beautiful path. Quite subtle and deliciopus. My only complaint is that it is not more easily and/or frequently found. For ones on the fence regarding sours, this might offer a nice means of entry.

Pours Amber little head. Smell is very subtle but pleasant and comes up more as it warms. Fruit and malt? Taste is malty and toasty and dry. Finished quickly perhaps from the wood. Nice and drinkable. Thin leaning but not too much. Dry fruity, toasty and drinkable. Interesting

On tap at BTBF. Pours with a murky brown hued body with an off-white head. Aromas are nutty, a touch of grapefruit, medium lactic, sour wine, oak and papaya with some malty notes. Flavors are nutty, toasty, oak. Light brett and various funky phenols. Malty, low vanillin. Estery. Medium carbonation. I am not really sure what to make of this. Messy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toasted malt with some caramel malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some toasted malt and nuttyness, as well as a bit of woodiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Dark brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, light roast, and a bit of vanilla oak. Taste of nuts, caramel, vanilla, and some drier wood tannins.

Imagine that. A brown cloudy beer with a thick off-white head. Aroma is burnt malt. Flavor is roasted malt and milky hoppiness. Wtf? Drink one more round.

Delicious beer. Well balanced sweetness. Spicy... like pepper spicy. Malty taste. Definitely one of the best brown ales I have ever tasted. Cloudy.
