Ale Alpharetta. Got this in a recent trade and it did not let down. Fantastic in fact. Red/brown pour with minimal off white head. Smell is lots of cherries, sweet barrel, hints of vanilla. Taste is more cherries, lots of sweet vanilla/oak notes, other berries. Mild, smooth, medium tart. Just a simplistically good sour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a hazy orange, with almost no head. The aroma is bitter oranges, with some cherries and vanilla. Very sour, with some fruity sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, and a little clingy. Overall, this is a nice, fruity beer, but lacks the subtlety, balance, and body of a great sour ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Papago.
Complex aroma of sour cherries, white grape, pickle juice, strawberries, and faint oak. Almost clear, dark orange-red under white, lacy wisps. Fresh sour cherry and white grape that starts sour and finishes sweet. No bitterness, clean finish, not quite mouth puckering. Medium light body, moderate carbonation. Would benefit from slightly more sourness and/or carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber color with ruby highlights and a slightly off-white head with pinkish hues. Aroma is tart cherries, strong acetic acid. Both are quite present in the flavor with a bit more of the sweetness shining through. Still quite sour, which lingers long into the finish. Excellent sour!

2012 bottle I think. very red shade of amber, fizzy off white head. Aroma is quite tart with a lot of cherry, no raspberry in the nose. Taste is very fruity, tart but not sour. Good blend of cherry and raspberry here. Thin with high carbonation. Pretty good for an American sour but nothing to write home about.
