Dark amber pour with a medium tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma has lactic sourness. Flavor is that of granny smith apple juice or hard cider, with medium carbonation and some vinegar. Complex yet missing something.

Sampled at Hickory Hops 2014. Lots of cherry and balsamic vinegar in this one, both in the smell and taste. Some woody flavors, too. Maybe some red wine, as well. Pretty good...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy pinkish red color with a small off-white head. The nose is certainly sour, mostly in the form of vinegar. A little bit of dark fruit and straw, but overall, it’s a fairly simnple beer. Maybe a hint of oak. Tastes similar to how it smells. Perhaps a bit more lactic than the aroma lets on, but still fairly vinegary. There is some fruit character such as black cherry and raisin as well as a bit of lemon peel, straw, and grass. Medium body with medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber mostly unclear with a beige head head. Aroma brings a sweet tart characteristic of American sours with a bit of wheat as well. Flavors bring sweeter tart than usual, maybe it has died a bit after a few years in the cellar.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. Bottle #7. A lightly unclear, brown beer topped by a small, light beige head. Vinegarish nose with some roasted malts. Pleasant but a bit one dimensional. I like vinegarish beers, good ones, but this was a bit boring, both in the aroma and the flavor. Vinegar, some berries, roasted notes and a touch of toffee in the flavor. Lasting finish. Tart, medium to full body, and pleasantly carbonated. Not impressed, but it’s far from bad. 120818
