This is a great Ale. It has a sour taste to it that I really enjoy. This is great for a hot day like today. Go times!

Pours deep red with two finger head. Smell funky, pungent sour cherries, tart fruit. Taste is sour, fruit, cherries. Good medium body. Good but not great.

Reddish brown pour with some unexpected sour, tart and fruitiness. Better than I would expect from Sam Adams. Pretty damn good.

Surprising and unusual, a lambic in wolf's clothing. The sour fruitiness is refreshing, while the spice and toasted oak / coffee finish ads substance and balance.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Deep toffee pour. Little head that fades quickly. No lacing. Nice malty tones under a blanket of acetic goodness. Taste is a subdued acetic flavor with a sweet roasted maltness. Good.

Pours a dark amber color with a thin tan head leaves no lacing. Aromas of currants and a little spice note. Flavor is vety complex with an initial taste of fruit then a tartness followed by a slight floral hoppinness. This is an excellent beer and worth seeking out if you appreciate Reds.

Bomber. Pours red with white head. Aroma is sour apple, oak, funk, and some cherry. Flavor is the same with a long finish. Nice.

Great tasting beer with one of the best smells I have ever smelled. I am a huge Sam Adams fan and this is one of my favorites for sure.

Not the best of the smokestack series, but we're not huge fans of sours. Pours a very nice slightly muddy red with a tan head. Smells like green apples, like a sour ale. Taste is lots of green apples and not quite ripe raspberries. A little too sour of a finish. Paired with Chicken Cordon Bleu, with cuts down the sourness and brings out the fruit. Love the bottles by the way!
