Poured dark hazy brown color with a white head that actually grew for about 5 minutes after the beer was poured. The aroma made me think this was going to have quite a bit of sourness. The aroma had a nice yeast maltiness to it. Flavor was really smooth and easy to drink. A lot of light fruitiness maybe a slight citrus feel to it. A slight tartness and bitterness to this one. This one feels great in the mouth, good carbonation and a body that fits the beer well. This beer would be pleasing on a cold winter night or a hot summer day. Refreshing yet still packs a mouthful of flavor.

Sampled at the 1st annual Stone Sour Festival 2007. Nice aromas of sour fruit and maybe some wood. Very good.

grandaddy had a barrel out back of the ol’ shed filled with nails and license plates and broken tire chains and such. after the shed blew down, that oak barrel filled with rain water-- and though it took nearly a generation-- the broth of metal, hard water and decay--plus maybe a few dead birds and some anti-freeze-- eventually turned the very color and consistency of this biere de mars. kinda smelled like this beer too, as i recall. the brew is mostly cloudy, ruddy as autumn willow, with suspended little bits of beer vitamins-- that taken daily will help to decrease memory. very nice head, lasting, one that will re-appear later in another costume: that of a bright carbonation that dances and sparkles across the stage to the delight of this audience. heavy brett and french mustard lead in the aroma. then i find dill weed and wine vinegar, medical tape, dried peach, with an earthy champagne background. imagine a bright carbonation mellowed by a milk gravy yeastiness; imagine very sharp lemony-tasting aged hops that grew even bigger fangs in their dark woody coffin of oak; think of the drying dust of a flemish horse barn, mingling in a blur of microbes with honied baklava, and imagine that it’s both contemplative and refreshing. you’ve got the idea: and finally imagine that your friend jeff left a bottle just for you after his last visit. cool. that’s where i’m at. (maybe grandaddy shoulda bottled some of that rusty muck). thanks to TAR.

Pours hazy rose with a disappearing white head. Slightly floral aroma with strong cherry notes. Sticky mouthfeel with plenty going on. Taste has oranges, grapefruit, melon, herbs and minerals. Wow. Excellent brew. Finish is long and citric.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste slightly sour, fruity, citrus. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sour mash, brown sugar, herbal honey. Malt profile seemed complex but maybe just more unique than anything. Bready, slightly chewy with molasses and a tangy quality. Appearance is a creamy reddish brown. Earthy round finish.

very tart sour acid nose, lacy brown mirky body, flavor is quite tart and very well soured, yet not so sour that it’s difficult to enjoy, tastes like dried out citrus rind, bitter and acidic, but it tastes like its good for me, oak flavors are hard to place, very tart and very enjoyable, I find many sours this tart to be quite watery but this has a much more substantial mouthfeel

bwa5879 (808) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Very cloudy orange brown pour with white corona of head. Cottony sweet tart aroma, apple and florals with a hint of lactose, straightforward. Very soft carbonation, tingly mouthfeel - detectable sour, crisp dry finish. Flavor of cracked pepper, lots of lemon and apple, barnyard funk, earthy malt. Nice light bodied sour that doesn’t overdo it.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2015
On tap, poured into a balloon snifter. The aroma is oak and sour cherry with a warm bake spice and pie crust, along with some caramel adding to the mix late. The beer pours a murky amber with a thick, white soap head that has a moderate light retention and only a light, runny lace. The taste is a balance between medium sweet and sour with a slightly less potent (although still present) bitter; it has a nice overall roundedness. The beer is oily with a soft fizz and a medium body. The taste is dry, sweet, tart plums, cherries, and a hint of citrus with a light woody smoke, light caramel, and a swallow that has a zesty, zippy clean quality with a bright toffee flourish. It finishes clean with a resinous character and a taste of light, sour citrus, candy apple, candy corn, and a dry rye bread which lasts only a short time leaving just a touch in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours with a dirty brown and reddish color and a medium head. Very fruity aroma of apples and citrus. Flavor is slightly tart at the beginning, that tunrs into bitterness. Medium bodied beer that is quite nice.
