Bottle. Pour is an almost-clear amber with a thin layer of tan foam. Aroma is lightly funky and tart with notes of cherry, leather, and red wine. Also a light mineraly earthiness. Flavor is really quite stunning. Up front, tart cherry notes glide across the palate. That gives way to malt vinegar notes followed by earthy tannin and woody notes. Very well-balanced and quite drinkable. A bit more tart than I would expect from a Biere de Garde but I really like it.

Light house jolly pumpkin bretta. Coppery and cloudy with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness. Some grapefruit citrus. Nice balance, probably one of my preferred from Jolly Pumpkin. Tap at Churchkey.

Draft at Clinton hall. Pours a cloudy dark brown color. No head. Taste is like a mash up of a bier de garde and a sour. Very interesting in its complexity

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Very nice, refreshing, cider-y but with a great biter back end. Really nice

This sour is so complex but so refreshing & out of the box. Earthy fruity flavors are abundant with a huge sour kick. Not for the beginner sour drinker, but a huge success for us that love sours.

Had a glass on tap at the pub. Wow, this is pretty outstanding. Quite funky, good sourness, but well balanced and very light and drinkable.
