2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: † Had my hopes up but then saw the ratings. † Looks great, but its real light, lacks fruitiness, sour and/or tartness. † Has a pale dryness, but its mainly a somewhat tart (somewhat), mealy sweetness, with a faint bit of fruitiness. † Less than pedestrian. † Lacks that nice fruity sourness one expects for a Sour Brown. † Good body, but lacks bright flavor and sourness.

Aroma, not much, taste is super funky, leaves a weird taste after the swallow. Not a good beer, has a medicinal taste to it!

Mildly sour, medium amber, minimal head. Mild vinegar tartness. Not bad for a sour.

Way too sweet. Not nearly enough sour. This is a weird beer. Not bad by any means. Just not how this beer should taste.

A new sour from silly? How silly. Seems Iíve been waiting 4-ever to try this, but now I see itís brand new. Very friendly dark beer attitude, no sediment or visible sign of dregs. Has a fairly clear slight metallic olfactory. As I bring the drink to my lips my nose does detect a slight hint of tart perfume. First taste is mild friendly tart stuff with an almost hidden fruit texture. Good co2 and quite nice on the uptake. It does have this slight hint of malt bitterness in there but you can just barely detect it. Yes, interesting and fun on the tongue, getting quite lovely as time passes. Metal returns to the nose. Civilized and well behaved thru the session, even the finish leaves no real ill effects except that slight bitterness in there, thatís the only sign its an ale. Ranks right up there with most of my favorite mild tart beers. Yummy overall experience, could drink a sixer of these with ease and now I wish I had more as the bottom of the glass approaches.

Bottle pours out a amber topped with a soap head. Nose is sweet malts and some light fruit notes. Taste is as the nose with sweet up front and a little sour.
