3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Strangeways in Dallas. Pours a brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head and minimum lacing. Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Full-bodied. Taste of earthy malt, tart black cherries and salty yeast. The finish is peat malt up front with a tart cherry aftertaste. Weird vinegary sour holds on the palate. Strange, interesting, tasty and good. Good alternative to a Flanders red ale.

Draft. Aroma is sour with some oak. Appearance is a dark brown with no head. Taste is dark malt over powered with sour and ends very oaky. Palate is sour and dry. Overall, a good sour... Would have liked less oak though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
GABF, 2012, Friday Evening. Simple and straightforward, this beer has a medium sweet malt flavor as well as some fruit flavor, combined with some flavor and aroma of balsamic vinegar which works very well in this beer. Good and sour, and surprisingly strong. Dry wood and yeast in the finish.

On tap at RealTail 2012. Pours a cloudy brown with a small frothy off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is oak, cherry, funk, and peat. Thin mouthfeel with a light tartness, vinegar, oak and nice sour finish. Wow really enjoyed this one. A very impressive sour from Real Ale.
