@ 2012 Avery SourFest. Murky brownish orange, no head. Kinda smells like honey and earthy toffee aged in some light sour oak. Tastes the same, kinda sweet and earthy with a light sourness on the end that lingers. Not too sour, very enjoyable and kinda sweet and sessionable.

Medium body, low carbonation.

Tap at 3rd Annual Boulder SourFest (06-02-2012). Poured a murky amber with no head. Smell is oak, cherries, light funk, barnyard, and tannin. Taste is vinegar, cherry, oak, funk, and a touch of brett. Light body with absolutely no carbonation. Meh.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Tap @ BBF:NOTF. This one seemed like an acidic belgian amber ale. Boozy with banana, apples, bourbon, wood, some acid and honey. Flavor has a solid malt hit somewhat balanced by acid. A bit more tartness in the finish.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Denver Rare Beer Tasting 2010. Some spice and tartness on this beer, but it just wasn’t enough to be impressive, or quite frankly memorable, which is why I have no better notes.

Jblauvs (1345) - Chester, Vermont, USA - NOV 8, 2010
NOTF ’10 Muddled dark red pour. Aroma is acetic, some funky wood, and red fruit, spice. flavors are nicely developed, some wet funky wood, spicy malt, some sour acetic tones near the end wraps it all up. A really nice one from Sam Adams, I was a bit suprised.

sample @ the Denver Rare Beer Tasting II on 9/17/10. red pour with no head. light funky nose with a touch of oak... would really like the nose to be stronger - I had to search for these aromas - but given a better glass it would have been a bit easier. medium body - tart over the mouth with cherry notes, oak, vanilla... finishes much better than the rest of the experience with a tart / oak ending and somewhat sour. Overall a light sour with more cherry presence.

This is not my favorite style but I will generous. Sampled at the CBF. Amber/ brown pour. very noticable fruity aromas. (Cherry) taste was well sour. Blended well enough to combine the alcohol and fruit to a satisfactory taste. An interesting taste.
