NOTF 2010. Deep ruddy amber pour. The nose is quite oaky with a soft lactic back note. A lot of sweet/tart cherry along with a rich sort of vineous wildness. The sourness is fairly simple with a kiss of acetone fruitiness (I’d normally consider the latter a flaw, but it’s so subtle that it adds an interesting flavour). A little bit of muskiness that I quite like. Oaky with a touch of light vanilla and some soft tannic character on the back. Nice brew.

Draft at the American Craft Beer Fest in Boston. Poured a deep reddish brown, very sour up front with some darker, earthy tones underneath.

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.

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.

@ 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.

On tap at Avery Sour Fest poured a clear brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of sour fruit, barnyard, horseblanket and light spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry tart finish. Flavors of sour fruit, earthiness, horseblanket and light spice with a smooth dry lingering tart funky finish.

Avery Sour Ale Fest. Pretty nice. Extremely smooth compared to some of the other brews at the fest. I got mostly brown sugar notes from this one with some earthiness and funk. Would like to try this one again.

On tap at the Night of the Funk 2012. Fruity, acetic, and barrely with mild dusty funk. Not bad at all.

his is somewhere between a Belgian and an American sour, in my mind. Sour fruit, with maybe a bit of fresh hop, and a little sweetness keeping the sour in check. Very refreshing for a beer with this much flavor. I
