3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A very clear brown with a foamy white head that diminishes to a thin film. Nose is sweet, a little doughy, a bit barnyardy, with a sour fruit tone. Flavor is light tartness carried by the effervescent carbonation alongside a medium sweet malt backbone. Reminds me of a very mild balsamic vinegar with its sweet/sour levels and balance. A pleasant brew, thought not particularly out of the ordinary for the style.

A nice strong head accompanies this ale as it is poured. It takes a long time to settle, too. A nice even brown color. A light touch of malt with a bit of a tart attitude assails the nostrils. The tartness is proved by the light sourness on the palate. A really nice easy drinking refresher of an aged ale.

Brown with ruby hints, not much head. Oak, cherry, apples and cheese aroma. Woody flavor, a hint of caramel, and maybe some mushrooms. Tart but I expected a bit more because of the aroma. Thank you Todd for the beer and hospitality.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Red Monk in Des Moines. Pours a dark brown with a hint of red, and a fluffy head. Aroma is of sour fruits and vinegar, with a malty, biscuity base and a hint of yeastiness. The flavor is similar, with a sweet, malty base, then a very fruity and slightly vinegarry flavor. The palate is good, not overcarbonated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Dark brown, untransparent color. Brown, medium sized, creamy head. Medium body, a bit creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Aroma is winey, funky, with oak barels aromas and basement with notes of red fruits. Taste is good balanced with soft to medium strong sourness and notes of caramel malts. Dry but not watery beer with interesant character of red wine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 pours a nice dark red color from an 11oz bottle. Some head that stays for a little bit.
Good aromas, though not the most complex sour. Cherries, red apples, funk tones and a bit of asian spices. Decent depth, but nothing that blows you away.
lighter bodied and lacking a bit in the flavor category. Mostly cherries and some red apples with a touch of acidity to it as well.
This is a straightforward sour. Solid, but leaving me wanting for a bit more.
