3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Balsamic vinegar, cherry, sour, yet rich.
Appearance: ruby/brown, light beige head
Taste: Intense, fruity sourness upfront, followed by musk, sweetness and oak notes, finishing dry. The bottle I opened was a bit too cold, once it warmed up the tartness was well balanced by the sweet, earthy flavors.
Palate: Medium body, lively carbonation, finish doesn’t linger and is dry
Overall: My first experience with a sour, was a bit intimidated by the style, but ended up enjoying this very much.

One of my first sours back in the day. Still real good. Red brown with disappearing head. Nose of apple, vinegar, and citrus. Super sourness at front gives way to sweeter, sugary finish. Green apple all the way. Lighter mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Good stuff.

22oz bottle. Murky rusty brown with a spotty light beige head. Aroma of musty wet wood, malt vinegar, cherries and light fruit. Flavor is fairly tart upfront with sour vinegar, light caramel malt and a dry alcohol. Medium to light body with a dry mouth feel. Have had this one numerous times, always a nice beer if your in the mood.

On tap at Naja?s. Reddish-brown with little head and no lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, and wood. Taste is similar with not too much puckering sourness, moderate carbonation, crisp mouthfeel, and a dry finish.
