Had on draft at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas. Big grape/vinious character. A full bodied beer, this is a bit surprising with the wild yeast. Very tasty and the acidity is in check. Nice sour.

A murky red-orange amber thing brought to me in a little tumbler. Has a nearly lambic-like sour-funk nose, deeper than most American sours. Juicy, lemony, cidery tart taste. Refreshing. Rather easy to drink for its strength and price.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with a long-sustaining beige head. Aroma consists of barnyard funk, vinegar, stone fruit, caramel, wet river rock. Taste is nice, sour and acidic. Mouthfeel is creamy, body not quite as full as I was hoping, carbonation average. Delicious, despite minor complaints.

Sour. I know its a sour. But this stuff is sour. Mostly lemon. Touch of like and sour apple. Easy to sip moreso than most of the other unflavored sours.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011 bottle. Completely opaque red beer with very small off-white head. Aroma is very sour, vinous, cherries, dark fruits, oak. Taste is heavy, eye-wateringly sour, mild sweet. Finish is dry, woody. Very full bodied and syrupy, low carbonation, too low, but it may just be the bottle. Good stuff.

At Jerry’s in Andersonville. The rye spiciness and sour work well together. Maybe this finished a little dry for my tastes but it was still pretty good. Puckery but not cheek numbing. Serving: Tap

On tap at Toronado. Light tart-lactic nose with oak, light spicy character, and a hint of sweetness. Hazy lustrous orange-amber with thin white head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Tarts and lactic with chardonnay, mild spicy notes and touch of vanilla. Great sour ale with woody funky finish and lasting tart after.

Another solid sour from this brewery. I am not so sure the rye is adding the character they describe. It is more of just a caramally and sour beer.
