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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)
