This sour must be a blend because there is plenty of sweetness that almost overpowers the tartness of the beer. It’s full of spice, a touch of smoke, vanilla, and a creamy mouthfeel. I’m not sure I like it. It’s good but I think it’s a bit sweet for me. There is something here, it really could be wonderful, but like I said, too much sweetness for me.

12 ounce bottle pour. Christmas gift from the Wisconsin side. This is very much in line with the Serendipity and other "tart" beers.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a nice red-orange with light, fizzy head. Aroma of fermented fruit and wood-earthy flavors. Taste is sour and tart with some sweetness from the fruit. Overall easy to drink and smooth even with the sour notes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep crystal clear reddish brown color with a good sized off white head that quickly dissipates to a ring on the top. Smells of light caramel and brown sugar with a cherry fruity tartness underneath. The flavor is mildly tart with a hint of funk, cherries and bits of lemons. There’s a solid base of sweet and brown sugar that provides a great balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart lightly tongue piercing mouthfeel. This one leans a bit towards the sweet side of sour ale, but I think its a really well made beer, I enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012. Translucent red body, no head. Aroma is basically absent. Fruity, mildly tart, refreshing, and highly drinkable. I could session the hell out of this.
