3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served, showing a hazed, rosy/amber color, with a quick, bubbly, off white head that reduced to a thin ring & film, and left some light spots of lacing on the glass. The nose was some yeasty, microbial funk, spice, expressive cherry, and tartness. Medium bodied, with spritzy effervescence, the flavor was almost sour, some vinous nature was evident, along with tanniny astringency, and some finishing dryness. By no means timid, perky, and quite tasty, but a snifter full was just enough.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, 2011 vintage. Poured light-medium orange with an off-white head that fizzled out rather quickly. The aroma picked up sour cherries, oak, and rich, almost boozy vinous notes.. meaty, with more dry, vinous character evident around the nose.. quite nice. The flavor found aggressive cherry and vinous sourness on the tip of the tongue, with chewy rye bread, meatier vinous notes, and cherry jam following.. sharp and dry on the quick edges.. peppery notes, strong wine, and sour cherries on the belly-warming finish.. a little heavy-handed, but otherwise very tasty. Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation.. balance between the components was good, but there was a tad too much of everything.. overall a very good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Pours extremely cloudy orange/brown with no head, soda-like fizzy activity, big bubbles, lots of fast streams. (Unfiltered, bottle-conditioned).
Nose: Sour apple cider-peach, noticeable funk/puke. (6/10-pungency)
Attack: intense puckery sourness
Mid-palate: (10/10)-acidic sourness, (6/10)-fruity sweetness, (MAIN) oaked apple cider, pukey aftertaste + sourness, sour malt
Finish: lingering astringent sourness, tangy sour finish.
Summary: Not for those who have bad memories of late night drinking games and mornings spent waking up hugging the toilet. Lots of sourness and puke when sipping by itself, but quite effective in refreshing the palate when paired with heavy BBQ’d food. Hard to finish when it warms up.

I am biased as this is my mommas milk but man this is a great beer. Tastes like apple jolly rancher. The bottled version definitely is more sour than on draft.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Beer Authority in Seattle. One of the best beers of my trip home, so much so that my brother and I came back the next day to get some more. Darker grainy brown with small, firm white head. Fantastic tart, ripe fruit. Peachy brown. Fantastic, smooth, lingering sour tartness. No funk, just full round juicy sour. Puckering. By far the best sour I’ve had in awhile.

Pours a cloudy orange with an off white head in a snifter.
Pretty standard aroma for a sour. Not much rye, little bit of brett.
Tartness hits first, with the rye following a close second. Definitely some peppery funkiness in there. Tasty.
Nice and carbonated which is how I like a sour.
Delicious sour. Different and complex, but very well done.
