4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into my SN tulip. It poured a deep dark brown with a fizzy white head the quickly disappeared. Smelled of dark fruits and vinegar notes. Tasted of figs, dates, raisins and other dark fruits. The oak flavors were not as prevalent as Iíd hoped but came through late nonetheless. Well carbonated for the style. Iím not a huge sour fan but this was one of the better ones Iíve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating number 2,500.
Thanks to GregSVT for sharing this bottle at the Flying Saucer Beer Tasting.
The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of dark fruit, with a lot of cherries, cranberries and blackberries. I also get a nice dose of brown sugar and some light tartness.
The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of tart cherries and other dark fruit, as well as some nice oaked notes. I get a little bit of toffee as well as some light sweetness and brown sugar notes. The sweet and sour components go very well together.
The mouthfeel is relatively thin and the carbonation is pretty low. A very nice sour beer.

Mango, papaya, and sweet fruit, acid and wood. Apparently I should be smelling and tasting dates here as well. Donít really get that. Woody, soft acid, wood and fruit. Lightly acidic, fruit and wood. Lingering acid, woody, acid. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy copper with a tiny white head. The aroma has tartness riding over the top of apricots, red apples, earthy wood like notes and some acidity. The taste delivers up tartness and then moves toward thick sourness and then soured citrus. Behind those notes is a persistent acidity. Too acidic for me.
