brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a dark copper color with plenty of red accents. The head is towering and off-white. S: Lots of acidity in the nose. Mostly lactic sourness, but a fair amount of vinegar as well, along with sour cherries, lemons, and oak. T: The flavor is almost like a more intense La Folie (if that’s possible). Lots of sour cherries, lemons, and green apples. The vinegar is quite noticeable as is a musty funk and tannic oak quality. M: The body is medium with a high level of carbonation and a very puckering and dry finish. D: This is one of the more sour beers I’ve ever had, and I enjoyed it. Lots of great cherry and wood notes, and the vinegar was potent but not over the top.
