4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries, citrus, sour lemon, and just a touch of must. It pours a transparent amber with a small beige head that quicly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet/sour cherry. The finish has moderate sour lemon, light sour orange, and a touch of oak. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a very tasty and refreshing sour. I could drink a ton of this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze amber with a thin-lacing effervescent froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet pale crystal malty nose with notes of black currants and strawberry jam along with fresh vinous oak. Starts with good carbonation and fiullness with a good amount of malty sweetness, fruity character and a nice puckering balance with a drier, lingering oaky finish. True to style and enjoyable. This should age well, but tastes just fine now.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, dark reddish brown. Small foamy head, wispy lasting. Aroma is sour, sweet/tart, fruity, cranberry, cherry, green apple, touch of caramel, slightly funky/woody, and very ’rounded’. Medium body. Almost fizzy. A good zip to it but it softens up and is very approachable. Sour, sweet/tart, just a little oaky drynes - really lights up the palate. Great balance. Worthy of praise.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours deep rosy brown with a huge, quickly dissipating foamy off-white head. Nose is oaky, with citrus rind and sour apple, sour cherry and light vinegar tartness. Taste is bitter, unripe dark fruit, light red wine vinegar tartness. Vanilla and wood on the finish, along with some citrus rind in the back of the mouth. Thin and soft, with ample carbonation. Good but not great, though I could see this one getting a little more interesting with a touch of age.

All I;ll say is I had it on draft and fuck it. Its fucking good, I know people don’t want to give too much hype to this brew but its sour, acidic, tons of oak, really a prototypical flanders. It flat out rocks.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Glowing orange body, respectable off-white head. Quite different than I was expecting, there is a real pronounced green plum flavor, sour and and mouth puckering. Very clean, watery malt base lets the sour flavors shine. Fruity, tropical wildness..cherry, raspberry. Unique, but fits right into the NG sour line up somewhere between Enigma and Cranbic. Very cool beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle share. Slightly funky aroma. Dark reddish brown with a thin light tan head. Taste is fruit and oak and plenty of malt. The sour is by no means overpowering. FWIW I am not a fan of sours and I like this one.

Pours dark brown with a bit of light frothy head. Notes of yeast, vinegar, and sweet dark fruits on the nose. Taste is sweet with a sour crisp finish. A light faintly oily body. Overall a great beer and love the thumbprint series
