3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz, Bottle #31/372., batch 11 An unclear, reddish brown beer with a minimal-sized beige head. Rather sourish aroma, with cherry notes, dried fruit hints and some roasted hints. Lacking complexity, but it tastes nice though. Lemony sourness, cherries, roasted hints and some nutty notes in the flavor. Tart and medium bodied, softly carbonated. Well, I’m not impressed. 121109

Little fuzzy on the comments as this was the end of the night. Bit of harsh bitterness balanced by dark malts. Barely perceivable maple, mainly slight tart fruits.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! 2011 vintage. Bottle 159/372. Pours a dark brown color that reveals quite a bit of amber highlights when held up to light. Small beige head that amounts to just a ring after a moment. Nice sour cherry and plum character throughout, with a good amount of oak and earthiness, balsamic vinegar, and a lighter amount of brown sugar and vanilla. Not really getting any maple syrup, per se, as this one is lighter in body and led by the sour fruits. Really nice sour nonetheless.
