   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Draft @ Jupiter during Sour Monday. Pours a deep, ruby-red color; thin, foamy, off-white head with patchy lacing. Pleasant amounts of acetic acid character: red candy, fruit, slightly more tartness and acidity in the aroma than the 20-to-Life; still, a heavy sweet-and-sour character. Medium body: lots of sweet/sour notes: red fruits, acetic acid / balsamic vinegar, and light citric sourness; still, quite sweet at the core, and not nearly as dry at the 40-to-Life Iíd sampled at Taps; slightly cloying and a touch messy. Disappointing, as Iíve never been one for Duchesse-style profiles in my sour ales, and this never really dried out enough. Lasting finish of red fruits, candy, sweet-and-sour notes, with lots of lasting sweetness.

(Sour Monday - Jupiter) Draft. Kick you in the face sourness. Lot thinner body than the 20 courtesy of the bugs used in fermentation. Nice reddish color

Aquilo (533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Sour Monday at Jupiter. Full brandy aroma. Not too sour at first, just malty with raisins, brown sugar, and dried apricots. Very sour flavor, but still very drinkable. Red brown color. Nice.

On draft sample at Taps, Petaluma opening in Oct. Ruddy/ruby color, aceto and cherry cough syrup aroma with heavy aceto flavors, more sour than tart, medium-lean body, smooth and lingering finish.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
bumpskier (33) - Sonoma, California, USA - OCT 7, 2009
On Tap at Taps during the grand opening as well. Deep ruby color. Intense vinegar aromas I found to be intolerable. Overwhelming any other aspects of the beer. Very light bodied with low carbonation. I absolutely love sour beers, but this came across too musty. I forced down a couple more sips before rendering it virtually undrinkable. I would not drink this again. Sour is one thing, tart is another. Vinegar is for fish & chips not for beer. Many apologies to Brian Hunt, I usually love all his beers.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at Taps during the grand opening. Sour hop taste a bit too much and brought down the palate for me. Still, sours do it for me, so I was satisfied after a long week.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Pours a bright golden with a spicy and sour nose. The flavor has a big hop front that subsides to a citrus tart mid to finish. Decent lasting finish.

Stone Sourfest. Big malt vinegar flavor which burned my throat. I like it. Very spicy. Would drink again.

On-tap at Stone Sour Fest. Before I tried this one someone told me it reminded them of Salt and Vinegar Potatoe chips. They were right. Pours orangish brown with a thin offwhite head, some lace. Smells sour with a lot of vinegar. Tastes hoppy and malty with huge, sour, salty vinegar flavors as well. Nice. I wonder if it’s the hops and the brett mixing to make all the salt and vinegar flavor. Medium, dry body with good carbonation.

Last taster @ Stone Sour Fest 2008. Poured a hazy amber with a reddish tint. Aromas of red wine, tart cherries and oak. By now my palate was done for, I think I tasted oak and something sour.......haha.....no more sours for me for a while.
