GTAEgeek (1286) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
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.

Bottle from AZ Wine. Pours a dark cherry color with steady carbonation and a fleeting pink head. Smells of tart cherries, raspberry vinegrette, and funk. Tastes of all three, But sweeter and more mellow on the palate. The yeast and carination make this memorable. A fine beer.

Great tart crisp fruit flavors and nose. A little heavy on the wood. Not one for the cellar. Great aperitif with some cheese.

750ml bottle courtesy of ablackshear. Thanks! Pours a ruby red color with no head. Aroma is fruity, raspberry, a little sour. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is slightly sour, cherry, a little bit of funk, with a nice dry, sour finish. Nice.

Typical sour pour with a hazy, pinkish, mahogany color and a fizzy, pinkish head which dissipates to nothing with no lace. The nose is like a sweet tart with subtle sweetness from the raspberries, a sour cherry tartness, wild yeast tartness, bretty funk, barnyard, light horse blanket, and a subtle wet wood note. The flavor is seemingly more young lambic-like with plenty of tart and sour notes to go around; the sweet raspberry notes are incredibly faint and almost completely masked by the tartness and acidity but still notable nevertheless. Other notes of mushroom funk, light horse blanket, sour cherries, tart bretty notes, underlying cranberry, a high acidity (though not puckering), and a very faint wet wood. The palate is very lively, somewhere between puckering and quenching with the acidity, and light to medium in body. The finish is still high in acidity bringing the quenching nature of the beer to near puckering levels, average in length, sour cherries and cranberries, and the wet wood notes becoming almost musky; I get a very subtle vanilla notes after the sourness leaves the tongue. As far lambics go, this seems to be very young, despite what the bottle description says. I feel like the die hard sour beer lovers will fall in love with this one, I was hoping for a bit more complexity and a sourness that did not completely dominate the flavor. That said, the use of the fruit was nice adding sweetness and tartness. I think with more time in the Woodcut barrels, this may have been an excellent fruit lambic, but right now it is just a wheat based sour fruit beer.

750mL bottle from Jubilation. $17.99. Well, I was hesitant to purchase this as I didnít know much about it, but Iím happy. Carbonation is a bit low for the style, but fine. Could be more sour, but itís sour enough I suppose. Finishes with a little fresh burst of fruit that is quite nice. A little more earthy funk would be nice too. I should probably grab another bottle to hold onto.

Clear red brown pour with a thin quickly fading white head. Strong tart cherry, oak, and funk aroma. Taste is tart cherry, vinous, damp wood, and earthy funk. Very dry finish with an oaky aftertaste. Really nice beer.

Bottle, 02/10/2012. Pours cherry brown, no head, with a still surface. Aroma dominated by raspberries and tart cherries, juicy, with some lactic notes, hint of yogurt, and funky oak finish. Flavor has an initial tart, acidic bite, leading into cherry, some balsamic in the mid-flavor, and surprisingly mellow, dry finish with notes of oak. Palate is maybe a bit thin with low carbonation, but somehow works and reminds me of unblended lambic in texture.
