A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, this beer is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A complex and intriguing original. The mystery began with wild yeast spontaneously fermenting a rich treasure of malted barley and cherries. Unlined Oak casks breathe deep vanilla hues and chords of smoke into this sour brown ale. Our Master Brewer has forged a smooth garnet tapestry that defies description. Wander off the beaten path.

Bottle from Ryan at Kickback. Pours a clear reddish brown. Holy mix of flavors. Aroma of pear and apple. Taste is cherry and raisin with sourness in there. Well balanced tartness. Really lovely beer.

ttutony (848) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Reddish brown with a light tan head. Tangy fruity aroma. Tart flavors with just a hint of cherry. Sourness is present but not overwhelming. A bit of nutty malt flavor. Lingering sourness on finish. Really nice.

b3shine (8108) - Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks adnielsen). Looks good; a very cloudy amberish caramel with off-white head that quickly dissipates into very thin lacing. Smells semi-sweet and mildly tart with a nice cherry presence alongside mild notes of oak. Tastes like it smells with a bit more tartness and a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

12oz bottle in a taster. Pours deep amber/brown with an off-white head. Aroma of sourness, some cherries, light oak, some pale and caramel malts, and some floral notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer.

July 2, 2015 - bottle. Brown pour with nice head and lacing. Aroma was sour, fruity, oak and malt. Taste was a nice balance of the flavors from the aroma. Did not expect much of this and was pleasantly surprised.

Slight pickle smell. Slight apple taste almost like Serendipity and a slight sourness. It’s like a cross between their Apple Ale, their Wild Sour, and maybe Serendipity.

Reddish brown. Aroma of Balsamic vinegar. Taste- tart cherry, green apple, blueberry, red wine and more of that Balsamic Vinegar. Laid down on top of a mellow cereal malt. I really like Sours and this is top-notch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
