4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Chris. Thanks!
A: Lightless red, almost black. Very light head. Not much in the way of legs.
N: Big cherry, oak, bubble gum, vinous grape, earth, leather, acetone.
T: Big sourness rounded out by soft cherry and grape. Nicely balanced for such an acetic beer.
M: Light bodied, hidden alcohol.
O: A winner. Nice complexity without overpowering acid. One of the Bruery’s best.

Yes. This is one of the best sours that i have had. Very good mix of alcohol with a bite that isn’t too pukcering.

Bottle at Blippsmas! Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Big lactic on the nose, sour cherries and some tartness. Big lactic tartness, huge dark cherry skins, lots of fruit, tons of sour acid. Very balanced, lots of tang and acid. Very nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. Nice tart funky base, with faint fruity cherry, mild acidity, a hint of sweetness, and a nice tart and relatively dry finish. Good stuff.

750ml bottle in a taster glass. Pours hazy ruby/brown with a beige head. Aroma of sour/tart notes, dark fruits, light cherry, and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good sour.

Bottle:   Deep dark brown, slight reddish hue, moderate sudsy tannish head, sparce lacing.   Strong sour nose, tart cherries, old wood.   Simple, clean, and strong.   Whoa, amazingly dry and tart on the tongue, assertive sour cherries and barrel aging.   This one makes me salivate like crazy!   Almost too much at times.   Just small sips are recommended.   Very clean, very tart, very dry.   Decent body.   Long tart and dry finish, sour cherries and wood.   Very simple, yet very good.   Thanks Rob!

750ml bottle shared. Pours dark red/amber. Funky nose, cherries, vinegar, and a bit of cinnamon. Tart and wet, a hint of fruitiness then finishing dry and mouth puckering. Really nicely done.
