3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 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.

On tap at Perch Pub with Leafs93 during Hookey Day. Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a thin white head that fades. Aroma of funk, cherry, and slight vinegar. A tart funky taste. Typical of the style. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with little head Aroma is vinous with some peppery notes. Taste is immediately mouth puckering. Sour wine/grapes and some earthy funk. The occasional floral note makes an appearance. Full mouthfeel with a heavy carb. Very complex and tasty.

Sampled at EBF 3/16/13.
They ran out of Black Tuesday 40 minutes into the fest, so I tried this. Lightly tart a little spicy with hints of dark pitted fruit. Nice sour.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is lactic sourness, vanilla, spicy earthiness. Flavor is tart, very dry, spicy, slightly woody, a really nice twang, but with a lot going on in the background. Excellent beer.

Hazy amber pour. Sour, slightly spicy aroma. Flavor is relatively straightforward, but refreshingly tart. The rye doesn’t come through as much as I was expecting but this is still a great sour.
