3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour from draft with no head at derby. Sweet prune and wine aroma. Black cherry smell too. Dry pallette. Fruity and boozy. Not bad for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Torst. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet tarts, a chocolate maltiness and nuttiness, and some dark fruits. Average texture. A pretty interesting beer but something doesn’t work right.

Draught at Local Option. Brown body.Tan head. Slightest taste of chocolate. But then big sour tart taste takes over. I like this a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mug’s Ale House, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours milky brown with a tan head. Aroma is sour mash, chocolate malt, and some weird funk. Taste is rather sour in a straightforward kind of way, coupled with vanilla and whiskey notes. Body is nice and creamy owing to the low carbonation. Pretty good. I would like to have more of this style (I think I had one before...). I hope it comes back like the gose.

Draft a at Local Option, Chicago. Pours clear brown with a tiny off white head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, bourbon, caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and acidic, aspects on the nose becoming downplayed and replaced by tart fruit. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Tap at Local Option, Chicago. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is liqourice malt and a hint of vanilla in the background. The flavour is strong sour with a vinegar palate that totally dominates.

mild sour aroma, lots of esters. dark color, near opaque. acidic, sour, with an oaky note and also a cider/wine like note. fairly complex and involved. the body seems on the lower side of medium/higher side of thin. very interesting aroma and flavor. a little bit muddled.

4oz pour at haymarket. Poured a red brown with a modest beige head. Both the rye and funk flavor come through well on the aroma. This has a nice balance between a dry, zippy spicy maltiness.
