3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is dominated by acid and fruitiness. Good lactic character with a hint of acetic acid. Nice fruitiness as well with notes of cherries, berries and a hint of tropical fruit. Faint malt backbone. Pours a cloudy copper with hints of orange and red. Head is white and pillowy but recedes fairly quickly leaving a small film on the edges. Flavor starts with a hint of rye character before the acidity takes over. Once agin mostly lactic with only faint acetic undertones. Acidity brings in a lot of fruitiness in the form of cherries and berries. The finish is dry with tart cherries and berries. The acetic acid is a bit more noticeable in the finish but still mellow and I donít feel it detracts from the beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Could possibly use a bit more carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall a very nice American Wild Ale from a brewery that is doing the style increasingly well. Nice fruit notes to the beer and the acidity is clean and crisp. Fresh and not muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Headless brown. Aroma and taste are bracingly sour. Unexpectedly like an acid rather than a beer and the cherry notes are like a concentrate. $4/10

First sour brew that Iíve partaken. Luckily, my friend randomly purchased this $35 bottle without knowledge. It is excellent & truly unique. I will try others down the road.

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma was of red wine and a fair amount of sour fruits. The taste was smooth and a bit tart and was on the spot as far as sours go. Very tasty.

Smells tart, sour, and spicey. Very sour taste. Strong flavor from the wine barrels as well. This beer is super tart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a hazy dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of rye, light vinegar, lemons, smoked malt, and yeast. Flavor was fairly tart, but not quite as strong as other Bruery sours iíve had. Not aedic like other ones either, more lactic and refreshing. overall a nice sour from the Bruery.

Not huge on sours with rye but as usual The Bruery always finds a way to take a style I am not crazy about and actually make me go back and buy another bottle to try again.
