4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Batch 15. Dark red-brown body. Large fluffy off-white head. Sticky lacing. Nose is musty oak, lemon, light cherries, invigorating. Flavor is a bit richer, with a bolder vinous character complementing the citric acidity, cherries, oak, and light must. Medium to light bodied, smooth carbonation, nice refreshing acidity in the finish, lightly sour. Pairs wonderfully with prosciutto.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Batch #16, 2012, Bottle #2161. Pours dark purple-brownish red from the bottle. Small bit of cream colored head. aroma of sour cherries, blackberries. Big heavy mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Lots of fruit up front with a good tart punch and dry oak finish. Cheery, blackberries, and grapes. Not sure I like the big body on this and tend to enjoy more effervescent sours. Not bad, but I could do without it as well.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome. Pours a brownish rust color with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma is sour, apple, oak, and "aged" funk. Taste is sour, apple, raisin, rum, and other beer aroma similar to the ones found in the "brett" varieties. Palate: plenty of carbonation adds to the complexity and bitterness. Finishes dry and aromatic, nice!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddish-brown nice head and little lacing. Fruity aroma of sour cherries with pleasant sourness, a tiny bit of oak. Taste is fruity, cherries, abit of berries, some lacto, little caramel sweetness (really just a bit), oak, vinious presence. Medium-low mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very surprised by this one. I might buy a few more next time i go to ontario.

Bottle from the LCBO. Just getting into sour beers and I quite enjoyed this one. Lots of vinegar upfront--initially I thought too much vinegar for my tastes, but it smoothed out. Enjoyed the bitterness, the sourness, and the array of fruits underneath the initial bite. A complex beer, for sure, but at 14$ I might only grab it once more (at least for this year)!

This was my first experience with a sour and I was pleasantly surprised, I’m not very good at describing what I taste, to me it’s really personal preference. I really enjoyed this beer. The aroma was a bit interesting, smelled like an empty jar of pickles. While some may not consider this good, I love pickles :) I’d drink it again!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sour, basement aromas come through strong (as soon as the bottle is opened), with a slightly honey-sweetness coming through as well. Very dark brown, hazy and long lasting thick head. Sour comes through on first sip, followed by sweetness that slowly develops into maltyness on the tongue. Not cloying at all. Complex and delicious. Caramel comes through as it warms some more. Thick mouthfeel and quite heavily carbonated. Great.
