Glass at World of Beer Easton on 3/31/14. Hazy reddish amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of sour cherry, sweet malt and balsamic vinegar. Sweet malt flavor with tart cherry before a funky and dry sour finish that has a bit of graininess to it. Nicely done.

Growler sample shared by Dogbones. Pours a clear reddish orange amber color with a thin white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice tart cherry burst, wood, funk, vinegar with some red wine tannin like character. Surprisingly tasty.

64oz growler, shared by doggones. Totally clear red orange amber color. Thin white head. Couple loose ropes of lace. Big raspberry tart aroma. Nice big sour taste. Bigger body. Lighter, smooth carbonation. More dry finish. Nice bigger tart sour taste, light sweet. Very tasty, lightly fruity raspberry sour ale. Lightly sticky. Great stuff, like it a lot. Lightly spicy, tart tannic sour taste. Love it.

Growler to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a transparent light caramel with soft carbonation. Smells and tastes tart and lightly funky with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Sitting at Lizardville I decided to drink something local. It has been a while since I revisited Thirsty Dog. This was a welcome reintroduction and well worth the cost, even if it was a bit expensive. I would recommend giving it a try if you like to see what breweries can do with their sour programs.

Aroma / Appearance - A caramel red base sticks to the glass. A minimal head and lack of carbonation pair with clear icy legs. Sour cherries, vinegar, and musty oak spark the senses with vinous aspects of an inexpensive bottle of red wine.

Flavor / Palate - The fluidity of the mouthfeel traps the sweet and sour blend nicely. Vinegary undertones swirl on the tongue. The delayed kick is a finishing touch for a fine release. I would not have pegged Thirsty Dog as a brewery capable of this before now but look forward to seeing if they can do so again.

Tap at the source. Pours a transparent copper with a white head. Aroma is musty, dry tartness. Taste is more of the same. Not that complex, but good nonetheless.
