COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Stony Brook Red: This unique brew defies traditional beer style definition. The rich, malty brew combines notes of tart fruit from the yeast with a toasty oak character from the barrel aging. The long dry finish is almost wine-like. This is a beer that is satisfying on its own and also pairs well with many foods such as braised or roasted meats, beef stews and strong salty cheeses.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is of bready malt, barnyard yeast, cherry, woody and sour. Body is full, crisp and creamy. Taste is very sour, sweet malt, caramel, candy sugar, cherry, funky yeast, wood, lemon zest, herbal hops. Finish is long, tart and pleasant. Very complex, delicious brew.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Clear brown beer. Sourish beer. Very much like a watered down Duchess Du Bourgogne. Pleasantly malty sour.

Bottle... Poured deep, ruby/maroon with a thin, light khaki head. Noticeable sweetness here with barrel and oak flavors. Some acidity, but not overly tart, and I wouldn’t see this was necessarily sour, just a hint of acidity to show the bugs did their thing. Some dark fruits and cherry skins, yeast spice, grenadine, vinegar, and more oak even through to the finish.

750 ml bottle. From the brewery in Boston, MA. HHOKXI.
Dark ruby red colour with small light tan head. Vinegar, sourness, tart fruitiness, mild cherry sweetness and christmas apples in aroma. Sweet and sour flavour with sweet cherry, fruits and spices. Slightly thin. Excellent American Sour Ale. Truly enjoyable.

Bottle shared at Slutfest 3, Richmond, VA, 4/21/12. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, earthy and herbal notes. The taste is tart cherries, berries, earth and a vegetal note. Medium bodied. Nice.

Bottle@ SF. Medium brown with sudsy head. Smells like a mix between sour apple and watermelon jolly ranchers. Porter sour, would get an even higher rating if the sour held on and didn’t give way to sweet. Dry finish. Good for a Sam Adams.
