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.

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.
