Considering I really am not crazy about sour red/brown ales, this was surprisingly good. Pours an orange reddish brown color. Smell is funky yeast and not my favorite. Taste is tart soury malt. Not overly funky at all flavorwise. Some cereal like grain sweetness as it warms. Medium body and light carbonation. Not bad at all.

Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Cloudy copper pour with a small foamy head that fades quickly to a nice ring. Aroma sour cherry funk, light jam, light brett, and light yogurt. Taste very acidic and sour. Lots of vinegar too. Tart and tannic finish. A little too rough for my sour tastes.

MacBoost (1260) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle, batch 5. Pours a deep red color with a larg white head. Aromas of oak and nondescript yogurt. Taste is off dry, sour, minimal bitterness. Flavors of huge oak, barrel, tart yogurt, gritty, some spice. Caramel. Finishes sour and tannic but not cloying at all. Solid.

1 year old bottle tasted at a bottle share -- Poured a nice active-foamy head with a muddy red color. Aroma is super tart smelling. The taste was very very tart, like tingling cheeks tart. I wonder if the little extra age on the bottle helped with that. Overall great beer.

Aroma of oak, sour cherry, and caramel. Pours hazy red brown with a small white head. Taste is sour cherry, sweet caramel, slight wine vinegar, and a sweet malty finish. Nice and tart with a sweet caramel mouthfeel. Love it.
