3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: orange brown, little to zero light tan head, no lacing. Aroma: very sour/tart aroma of citrus, light graham cracker and honey, some barnyard funk as well. Taste: tart, with marmalade, balsamic vinegar, citric acid, light black pepper and honey smacks. Finish: firm palate, slowly warming, possibly from the rye? Notes: Would have liked a little more rye heat, and the tartness really pushed the envelope, but the familiar and reassuring rush of thirst inducing post-sour finish in every swallow was extremely inviting. 2014 vintage.

Nose is very Flemish ale-ish, nice dark copper color with light bubbles.
The first thing I get is salt, and lots of it! after that is a nice tart with a hint of cherry and lemon. the finish lingers on for a wile. A very enjoyable brew.

2014 bottle. Can’t believe I’ve never rated this, it’s one of my go-to beers that I keep on hand. The spice from the rye and the sour bugs combine to make this one complex and delicious. Powerfully sour but still drinks smoothly. I’m a fan.

Bottle. This was fabulous, a sour beer that’s quite sour but very drinkable. The sour cherry is countered by spiciness and enough sweetness to make this really quenching and rounded.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep reddish orange with a fast fading head. ’14 bottle fresh. Nice cherry and wet wood nose, along with some pineapple. Quite tart, with sour cherry and pineapple and more wood. Not sure what the rye brings here but this is tasty stuff if not super complex.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Glowing rose orange little to no head. Smells clean with a light fruity sour. Smooth sour with a light rye undertone it adds a little dryness to the end. Still a great sour bite.
