3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at RFD in DC, served in a tulip glass. A lovely brown color with a lasting khaki head. This beer was quite simple for a sour consisting of mostly oak and lemon sourness. There was a touch of dark fruit in there but it was really hiding. Mouthfeel was thin even for the style. Sourness was light-medium and was lacking any sort of "zip" that is usually present. An ok beer but not worth the $10 I paid for a glass of it.

First release, 2010
Pours a lovely cola with some cherry hues, some soapy tan bubbles hedging an etched surface. Smells of lactic, acetic souring with a spicy malt background and some sour cherry character. A bit of wood in the nose as well. Flavor is slightly sweet, tart and malty. A bit of a bicarbonate flavor initially, then some balsamic, cherry, bread, some almost nutty flavors. A complex flavor profile, but I don’t know if I like it.... Medium bodied with a little higher carb than I’d like with a nice disappearing finish. The feel is refreshing. This beer is better than it was two years ago, but not anything I’d spend the asking price for (~$13 IIRC)

Cloudy brown color with no head. Aroma of cherry, vinegar, and wood. Not overly sour-just a hint at the back end with cherry, vinegar, and wood flavor. Very nice beer.

Wow, this held up pretty well for a few years! Lost it bite as a Flemish sour, but still really good. Aroma brings dominant fruity cherries, real smooth on the palate, so pleasant. Flavor brings light tart yeast and some cherry non sweet flavors at the end. Carbonation is right on, bringing a big pop with the cork!

Flavor is quite mild upfront. A hint of cherry and barrel, and a somewhat bready, somewhat spicy yet slightly biscuity yeast backbone. Finish is a hair more tart with sour cherry and an added splash of vinegar showing through and spicy as well. Somewhat dry. Not much lingers but a hint of tartness and a hint of biscuit.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Turtle Creek Wine & Spirits in Winder, GA. Stored for a couple of years. Sour apples, sour cherries, very fresh and lively in the nose. Dirty brown, with little head. Quite a sour initial hit / slight fumes in mid, with more palate-scouring sourness / finished just bit fizzy and astringent, leaves the tongue clean. Thin-medium body. Pretty damn good. All the fruit is there, soured up, puckering and refreshing. Not too big of an acid attack. I like it.
