Draft at WBF Durham. Best of the festival, IMHO. Multiple samples. We lived at the end of the tent where this was for 30 minutes, easy, drinking this stuff. Maroon bodied. Aroma is sour fruit, wet wood, and light vinegar. Taste is sour cherries, cherry skins, lemon juice, wet oak, and cat urine notes. Mild sweetness in the back. Body si tart and acidic while being light -medium overall. No real carbonation to speak of though it wasn’t really flat. Ends with more sour cherries, light lemon, wet wood, cat urine and berries. Very nice stuff!

WBF. Man, I was not expecting to see this one. Pours a translucent copper with no head. Nose is fruity, sweet, tart, mildly acidic. Flavor is a tad thin, cherry skins, tart, lacking a bit of complexity. Palate is mildly tart. Didn’t get much oak. Good to see the attempt though, definitely glad that someone in NC is doing this.

tap at brewgrass 2009. i came back to this one at multiple points throughout the day.... poured medium transparent reddish amber brown with a thin white head....a little oak and tart cherry in the aroma....flavors maintained a good balance of soft oak, not too sour cherries, and a nice caramel/toffee undertone. not too sweet and too sour.

On cask at World Beer Festival in Durham. Surprisingly bold style from this brewery. Pours hazy peachy red/pink with thin white head. Has some distinct lacto notes as well as strawberry and cherry. A little yogurty. Not overly sour. Tasty, though.

Brewgrass 2009 I never thought there was much chance of finding this style at a local brew fest. Surprise! Pours slightly hazy, red tinged dark brown with a soapy white head. Tart, fruity aroma. Nice tartness with just enough underlying sweetness to balance. Leaves the palate clean and tingling.

I really loved this beer! Had it on tap at Bluegrass 2009. Not crazy sour and not too sweet. Good balance and palate appeal. Went back several times for it and it went fast! (shhhhh)
