(Draught) clear medium amber/orange, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of sour cherries, fresh bread, yeast, orange peel, lightly spicy rye. Taste is very tart, lemon, rye, citrus zest and pulp, seriously puckeringly Tart beer, just how I like it. Iíd almost call it tongue numbing.

Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a golden orange, no head. Aroma is tart and warm, hints of cherry/sweetness. Body thicker, rye and wood become much more prominent as beer warms. While certainly good, this beer somehow strikes me as an exercise in extremes, as opposed to a well-balanced ale. It is sour, no doubt about that.

Tap at Beer Study. Pours super cloudy orange, looks kinda similar to the last pour/yeast of a fou foune or similar colored sour. Nose is big and acetic, some wood and balsamic vinegar, light peach/apricot fruit. Flavor is similar, heavily acetic, light lactic character. A bit out of wack, but theyíre a

Expensive-ass pour at the otherwise cheap Beer Study in Chapel Hill. Hazy, about the color of the label, a little darker. Modest white head. Nose of acetic lemon and cherry, oak, some vanilla and lactic notes that are more pronounced on the tongue. Bit of sharp spice from the rye. Little pucker on the finish. Solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy light amber with a medium white head that dissipates immediately. Aroma has nice tart/soury candied fruits...cherry...and mild spicy/earthy rye. Flavor follows suit and adds an oaky/vinous winey layer that works well. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a dry sour cherry/vinous finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy dark orange with a two finger head that slowly reduces. Aroma is in your face tart, spicy from the rye, bready too, oak, this beer has so much going on, very complex. The taste is mouth puckering sour, rye bread of course, spicy, cherries, oak, again massively complex. Body is medium, carbonation is medium high. Overall I loved it, one of the most complex beers I have had.
