4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The hue is slightly lighter than a traditional sour brown ale, but having said that, this is the most pleasant sour I’ve ever tasted. It was bottled in 12 oz 4-packs for around $8, and I bought out most of SE Wisconsin’s supply. It only sold for a month in the summer of ’13 but I have a nice supply. Salud!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle thanks to portableparty. Dark brown pour, slightly frothy thin head and an aroma of wonderful tart woody cherries. Flavor is also nice tart dark cherries, raspberries, sour red grapes and more nice dry wood on the aftertaste. Good god what a great beer, they could ask twice as much for it and I would still buy it.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, what a great beer! Poured a bit cold, but that didn’t seem to hurt it a bit. Had a large, tan, thick, foamy head that settled after a bit and a smidgen of lace. Color is a hazy medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is a heady, blend of tart, malt, spice, fruit, resin. Flavor’s like nose with spot on balance between sweet, sour, and bitter. Body and carbonation couldn’t be better. Finish is like flavor, clean, rather long, and very easy drinking for what’s not usually so accessible, A masterpiece.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wowie. Aroma is wonderfully ripe peaches, plum, and tart white grape. Pours a dull red with nice fizzy carbonation, though not much head. Taste follows suit with crisp peaches, white grapes and a hint of candied apple. Mouthfeel is just the perfect balance of tart, sweet and funky. I can’t praise this beer enough.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This beer pours a beautiful red color. The Bose is just enough to imply the sour flavors you're going to tase. The sourness is great, a wonderful Flanders red taste with a hint of a little lacto in the beer. Starts smooth, finishes tart, but the carbonation helps clean off your tongue.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This one poured clear lgiht brown color with a small off white head. Aroam was lots of tropical fruit, mangos, peaches and pineapple. Light dyust and funky yeast. Flavor was an awesome boquet of flavors, melons, mangos, cherries toast, wood and mild funk. Just perfect sour balance too. Simply awesome, yet simple.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber/red color and fairly hazy. Very tart with just enough body to balance it out. Lot’s of sour fruit character, very nice effort.

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.

4.4 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.

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.
