Really nice sour. Aroma is funky and fruity. Lots of apples for me like sparkling cider. Super puckering but balanced. I didn't get much oak but I don't think I missed it. Would grab again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. bottle from the local liquor store. Pours the color of golden honey with a small white head that maintains and leaves lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, oak, slight vinegar, I detect some hay or herbal aromas as well. Tastes quite dry and tart with a slight woodiness, but has a refreshing flavor and a good balance of sweet, sour, and bitter. Very unique and an interesting combination of flavors. The 7.3% abv is well hidden. A very lively palate with a medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, and a sour and dry finish. A very nice sour ale, would repeat.

Location: Draft at Max’s on Broad, 5/3/14
Aroma: The nose is sour, with some wood, oak, and a good amount of earth
Appearance: It pours a pale golden color with a fluffy white head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is similar, sour flavor and wood, with some earth
Palate: The body is medium, with a slightly pucking mouthfeel, and a sharp finish
I thought this was a pretty solid and tasty sour. It has a nice combination of flavors that work nicely together. Nice stuff.

Bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: slight white head, golden yellow color, clear. Aroma: vinegar, oak, some lemon hoppiness and honey sweetness. Palate: light body, dry finish, average carbonation, crisp. Taste: crisp sweetness, bitter and tart finish it off. Overall, unique, but I feel that the balance is off a bit. Still a great beer and something I will be buying more of.
