3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at the brewery. It pours very dark red with an off white head. The aroma is black currant, cherry and dark malts with a touch of oak. The flavor is very sour with cherries, grape skin and some mild vinegar, but not as much as most of their other beers. My favorite of the night.

From tap at The Monks Kettle during "United Sours of America" (my first one from this brewery)
Clear dark reddish/brown with a small head. Sour and fairly vinous aroma and taste of oak, berries and brett. Refreshing and with a soft body.

Burgundy red. Minimal head. Nose is beets, root and balsamic vinegar. Cherries and blue cheese. Very acidic. Fruity like dark fruits, oak and melons. Just so much vinegar.

On tap at Ratebeer Gallery II. Dark rusty pour with a tan head. Dark sugars and lactic acid notes, dried fruits, plenty of oak. A nice dark sour that avoids the typical stylistic pitfalls of cola flavor and acetic acid.
