Bottle thanks to Beau. Pours a cloudy brown with white head. The aroma is cherry tart and sour fruit. Medium mouthfeel with light sourness and tart in the finish. Easy to drink a good sour from Natty Greenes.

Bottle shared by Andrew at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Pours a light burgundy. Nice flanders style representation. A bit heavier on caramel malt than other flanders reds that gives the body a little sticky sweetness. Moderate balsamic notes. Moderately acidic. All in all, a solid sour that would be the type I’d use to introduce someone to the style.

Had this at Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Tart acid, soft wood on the nose. Bright acid, tart with a light amount of acid initially. Warm with some funky musk, and long acid into the finish. Very tasty.

During RBWG 2013. Bottle via b3shine, I believe. Thanks, Breau! Amber pour with a nice khaki head. Tart, funky aroma with berries, sour lemon juice, and bits of wood. Sour flavor, lemons and berries, with some funk and wood. Not bad!

Waxed bottle shared by jmborggren. Pours an opaque deep amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a nice tart fruity quality, oak, mild herbal notes and some toasted malt. The flavor has more tart fruits, a big woody component, some toasted malts, this was pretty drinkable, not a big sourness now but good.

Bottle at RBWG, thanks Beau! Love how my man from OH brought all the NC sours. I thought I had tried all the Natty Greenes’ sours but I’m glad to see that I had yet to have this one as it may be the best one yet. The others have all been boozy, oak, questionable sours and while this one definitely still needs some work, it’s got more tart, vinous, funky quality than any of the previous incarnations. Light tart cherry fruit, oak, dusty finish.

Bottle shared by SincereNC. Thanks for picking this up, Ian! Purty good effort from those dudes down in Greensboro, NC. A little high on the acetic side, but this seems to be the case in many American sours. Definitely a step in the right direction though. Keep working on it, yall.
