Draught at Churchkey. Ruby red color, off white head, solid lacing. Aroma of fruit. Taste is sour, tart. Unfortunately I had a Rose de Gambrinus the night before, and this one pales in comparison, but it’s still a nice brew.

On tap at Frisco Grille as Short Batch #9: Pours a bright ruby red with a thin ring of spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, tart raspberries and some lactic notes with some fresh oakiness. Starts a little light on the carbonation but has a nice viscous fullness with some fresh raspberry seed flavor and tart complexity before a drier somewhat sour oaky finish. Very true to style and enjoyable.

Draft. Small off-white head with clear red-orange body. Aroma is moderately sweet, raspberry, some tart, light funk. Taste is just what the nose suggests. Light-medium body, light acidity. More a fruit beer than a sour, as the sourness is very mild. Not bad, just not quite as advertised.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2010 Location: Tap at Blind Tiger, 5/9/10

Aroma: Nose is quite sour, cherries, sugar, and more sourness
Appearance: Pours a clear bright red color
Flavor: Taste is sour as well, like rotten fruit
Palate: Body is medium, soft carbonation
Overall Impression: Only a couple of ratings so far on this one... This one seems to have missed the mark for me. Can’t quite explain why, but I wasn’t a huge fan of this attempt at a sour.

I really love Smuttynose and I really love sours, but this stuff is a disaster. Pours an artificial, translucent, bright red (almost a deep pink), about the color of red Jell-o when in liquid form. Nose is candied strawberry. Flavor is also candy strawberry with an unappealing diet pop (soda for you Eastcoasters) flavor. A bit of sourness, but not the inviting, refreshing, vinegary bite and twang you get from a well-crafted beer of the style. Mouthfeel is extraordinarily thin which makes it even less drinkable. I couldn’t finish my pint. Everything about this beer is artificial. One gets the impression that, due to their current mass appeal among craft brew drinkers, Smutty rushed a sour option to the market that probably shouldn’t have been released. Too bad.

tap at Blind Tiger: a sour, cherry bomb. finishes oily and slippery mouthfeel. Uncomfortably synthetic tasting

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2010 Tap at BT. Pours a mostly clear, very bright ruby red- reddish-blush wine with no head- fizzy. Aroma is sweet and sour with tart red raspberries, juicy juice fruit punch, some cherry cough syrup and lacto. Flavor is vanilla, earth, oak, raspberry, mineral, seedy, pits, sharp acetobacter and lacto is strong as well- sweet and sour- mostly sour with a long oaky somewhat buttery finish but the acid really hits hard in the end as well. Strange and a bit out of control.
