75cl, new exclusive American brew Anno 2010, thx to Wimenels!, complex sour brew, sour/fruity and slightly woody, balanced, cloudy, good head, good brew, yet very expensive!

Draft. Hazy reddish brown pour with a nice beige head. Aroma has lots of horseblanket, oak, leather, cherry. Taste is quite sour, lightly acidic, balsamic, more oak and cherry, light sweetness. Palate is tart, dry, soft. Very nice example of the style.

On tap @ the brewery. Reddish brown with some creamy off-white head. Aromas of oak, leather, and cherry - smells wonderfully sour. Flavor is just as good with sour cherry, wood, and ripe berries. Great mix of tart and sour - I really love what these guys do with the style.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Dull brown. No head. Doesn’t look very good. Aroma is woody and a little bit balsamic with some complex fruitiness. Tart, woody and slightly balsamic palate matches the aroma well. A fairly clean American sour.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a nice looking reddish brown with a thin head of sticky bubbles. Nose is nicely lactic and dry. Reminds me of the old La Folie. Some cherry notes and soft bread as well. On tasting, very nice level of acidity without being overbearing. Nice and rich quality that dries out and is quite refreshing. Light Brett note that lends some cherry. Really fine and nuanced old school sour. Excellent.

callmemickey (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 On-tap at Monks. Philly Beer Week 2010. A: Dark red-brown body. Almost bordeaux colored. Thin off-white head forms and then quickly recedes. Just the slightest bit of residue left on the glass. S: Rich, sour cherries. Hearty dose of oak, funk, and general acetic acid notes. Slightly spicy. T: Delicious. Sour cherries take center stage and are well complimented by oak and its complimentary vanilla and tannic qualities. Leather, red wine, and a bit of earth. Slight vinegar contributions. M: Medium bodied with gentle, velvety carbonation. Lingering sour finish. O: A truly wonderful flanders syle brew. Side note: Bottles of this were not nearly as impressive as this on draft.

Gabf. Dark orange appearance with a light tan head. Tart, dark red fruity, light caramel aroma. Mild to moderately tart, red fruity, toasty malty flavor.

’11 bottle. Pours a rust brown color with a quickly fading tan head and steady carbonation. Aroma is tart, oak, lemon, leather, unidentifiable dark fruit (raisin/cranberry?), and a red wine barrel tinge. Taste is tart/sour, dark fruit (seems more light cherry) up front followed by lemon, red wine, and a semi-funky finish. Fairly clean feel in the mouth that goes slightly watery toward the back third. Very enjoyable sour that will hopefully improve a bit more with age.

Tasting notes from both draft in ’10, bottle in ’10 and draft at Stone Sour Fest ’11. Pours a dark amber red with a hazy off white foam head. Aroma is of slight cherry from the age, oak and some sour funk. Taste is of caramel, funky sour and some sweetness. This beer has aged very, very well. The sourness has receded but the oak has come to play a much larger part of this beer. Overall, this is one of the first sours I’ve had from fresh to aged that has gotten significantly better with age. I can’t wait to taste this in another year or so.

Sample shared by someone at HF anniversary afterparty. Brownish-red pour with no head. Aroma of tart cherries, brett and sour dough. Taste is quite sour, very fruity, lots of cherry flavors with a dry finish. Great Flemish red.
