Tasted on tap at the 4th Annual Stone Sour Fest on 7/18/2010. This sour ale pours a cloudy medium brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and sweet. A medium bodied sour. The malts are fruity and sweet, very tart, very dry, yet very spicy and sweet. Little to no carbonation. Lots of tartness. Smooth taste. Very interesting combination of spice, sour and tart. Itís like a sour pumpkin pie, without the pumpkin. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.

A spiced sour, whoíd a thunk it? That said it was pretty damn good, a lot better than I anticipated. Pours a rich dark cloudy red. Nose has big notes of cinnamon, and nutmeg. Taste is sweet, spiced and tart, all around interesting and uniquely different from the sours iíve had.

On tap at Stone Sour Fest. This was the bizarre beer of the day. Pours with a murky brown body and a tan head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, mulled wine and sourness. Taste is sour cinnamon toast with a big squeeze of lemon. Odd combination, but not have bad. Dry and lively mouthfeel. Very strange!

Tap @ Stone Sour Fest 2010. Pours much darker than its cousin Felix, medium amber but clear, small off white ring. Nose, Like Tokyogoat said was big on cinnamon roll as well as muddled tart citrus. Pretty cool stuff but Felix was much better.

nose was strictly cinnamon roll, nothing else, smelled like i was at a cinnabon at 5am. Quite nice, yet bizarre. Unfortunately it didnt taste quite as good, mostly acetic with loads of spice and not much else. fun novelty sour though.

First! Stone sourfest. Cloudy amber with no head. Nose is super spicy with hints of lavender, jasmine, honey and dark fruits. Flavor is full of tart fruits with a backbone of drying spices, hints of barrel aging, finishes dry. A sour with a spicy aroma but smooth and solid dry tartness, delicious!
