yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Hazy amber color, no head. Some moderate lacing. Aroma is nice, sweet, sour, some cherry candy and other fruit. Peach and strawberry. Light even with all this going on. Flavor is sweet, smooth, rich, tart and fruity. Nice and drinkable, not overly sour. Clean with rich juicy fruit. Dries out nicely with some faint brett funk to add to the sourness. Nice.

Cherry and strawberry aroma. Cloudy ochre, medium yellow head. Strawberry and sour cherry flavor, finishing in fresh barely ripe strawberries. Fantastic take on the style. This may be my favorite from The Bruery.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
This one becomes increasingly murky with each pour, with a reddish brown body and a big clumpy beige head that recedes slowly with small foam spots on the top and some lacing on the sides. The aroma is brown sugar, tart cherries and hints of funky brett. On top of this is the wood character, definitely some oak. The taste is more of the tart cherries, seemingly sweeter than the aroma would indicate and, though the brett is present, the finish is sweeter than I was expecting. Itís dry, just not as dry as others Iíve tried. The mouthfeel is extremely clean and crisp with a pleasant tartness and light funk in the finish. I think this is an excellent Flanders as itís plenty sweet with the cherries with enough brett to balance it, but not so much as to dominate. Excellent.

Hazy deep amber with a tiny beige head. Sour aroma with lacto, sour berries and roasted malt. Flavour was sour with roasted malt, lacto, sour beries and barnyard. Finished sour and dry. Mouth drying stuff. I like that!

draft at Brewvival. wow, there were some delicious sours at this fest and this was another one. pours a beautiful reddish copper with a thin, bubbly tan head. aroma is great with sour berries, tart cherry, red wine vinegar, and sweet caramel with herbal, grassy notes and a hint of leather. flavor is delicious as well, albeit a bit more tame on the sour side, with notes of tart cherry, blackberry, and lemon peel with touches of wheat grass, funk, and sweet toffee with a tart, fruity finish. palate is medium bodied with high carbonation and a dry, fruity mouthfeel. overall, a delicious sour. hard to believe this was my "lowest" rated one of the festival.
