marcus (6785) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
On tap at Fredfest 2014. Pours dark brown with a decent beige head and a whiskey aroma. There is a very sour apple flavor with a lot of whiskey.

brokensail (11603) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 10, 2014
On tap @ Churchill’s. Dark amber pour with a small off-white head. Highly acetic aroma. Green apple, lemon juice, and sour berry as well. Some grass, oak, cola, and mild whiskey/booze. This has to have a pH of about 2, holy moly. Super vinegar, lemon juice, and sour green apple. A bit of sour berry, citric acid, and some grass. Dry oaky finish, mild whiskey, and a subtle sugar/malt sweetness.

JohnnyJ (4553) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On draft. Slightly hazy orange/red pour, with a thin off white head. Very sour and acidic, lemon juice, light sweetness, note of whiskey barrel, and a bit of fruit. Ok sour, not very balanced.

> Almost all lemon juice with no calvados

[ Tap ][ Churchill’s Renaissance ][ 5oz ][ Mini Flute ][ $4? ][ 3/1/14 ]
>> Thanks brokensail for the share. Clear red pour with a ring of foam. No head. Sweet strawberry nose. Taste is spritzy, huge lime peel, very lemon citric style of sour. Not much complexity shines through given the heavy lemon one note.

<!> too citric, could be reblended back into non-sour base beer

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
tepid red chestnut, thin white ring. Red apple sweetness leads nose, oaky vanilla with burnt sugar and pie crust accents. Overly sweet and muddled, sourness is harsh. Thin front palate, light green apple and skin with brown sugar following, strong acids hitting jowl with no balance through thin, cherry acid finish, watery and stinging with sugar remnants. Sourness way harsh, no marriage with sweetness, blend apparent, acetic burns intensely with warmth until barely drinkable.

peteinSD (1407) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Tap. Dark brown pour. Aroma is red wine vinuous with heavy and sharp tart/sour and oak. Taste is sharp and aggressive with tart, red wine, dry whiskey, and lingering sour.Clean and dry. Good but perhaps a bit too sour for me.
