4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep orangish brown with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is ripe fruit, some earthy oakiness, and a bit of funk. Lively and fizzy on the palate. Flavor is fruit, oak, a bit of metallic tang. Finish is dry, with a bit of lingering fizzy candy. Well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brownish red with one finger light tan head. Aroma is nice malt, tart berries, faint vinegar hints,oaky vanilla, pretty woody. Taste is nice..... but disappointing, sweet malt, tons of vanilla oak wood flavor, tartness is very faint, weak vinegar, was hoping that this would be more tart as the aroma suggested. Not bad, sam adams is working on makin some better brews and i think they are doing well, but this sour needs a bit of tweaking .E

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brune color with a tan head that fades quickly. Aromas of dark fruit and so much wood... the taste is pure oak and moss, followed by some rum soaked fruitcake and an alcohol burn. High boost. Unlike CIB brews, no veggies are offered though. Pretty tame but oh so high boost. Not bad.

Thanks for the split HisBoyElroy. Very nice smell. But everything else was a different story. Not much to it and kind of plain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours a tawny reddish brown color with a thin light tan head that falls quickly to a ring leaving thick lacing. Aromas of caramel, tart cherry, oak, and brett. Taste is tart but includes some musty notes, fruity apple and pear, clove, slight bit of banana and finishes slightly bitter and quite drying. With the drying finish comes some of the oak and woodsy characteristics in the taste. Medium, sticky body, with high carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ruby red to brown, creamy tan head. Beautiful aroma. Malty, bright fruit, lightly woody, smells as if it will be a really good sour beer. The palate/flavor is a bit disappointing, as the sour flavor is much less prevalent, although still there. Long finish on this one. Overall, definitely a good beer, just a bit less sour and complex than you’d expect from the nose.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma I amazing and smells like it would be a pretty sour beer. I was kind of disappointed with the taste. Starts like a mild sour, but it finishes kind of like an ale.
