0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Extra sour crap-oooooo-la. That’s the only description I’ll give because that’s the only one it deserves.
At least the bottle makes a nice souvenir of our trip.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Aroma-very fruity. Appearance, just average for amber ale. Flavor- Way too many hops and overly sour. Not just a little bit, either. Palate-overpowering taste of sour fruit with a bitter finish. Cannot recommend this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sourest amber ale I’ve tried, and I liked it. More flavor than most ambers as well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a nice, nutty brown with an aroma of roasted peach and malt. Flavor is nutty, buttery, and a touch of chocolate with fruit preserves. Palate spreads the flavor. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Aroma is fruity with hints of banana and toffee. Pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head. Flavor is lightly sweet up front. Finishes with roasted grain and nuts and a flowery hops that doesn’t mesh well with the roastiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Brad. AMber red color w/ a foamy white rocky head. Lots of fast moving bubbles fill the glass. Nose is light caramel and mild hopps, some sugary effect. Taste is thin, sweet and caramely with some sour notes that drag it down.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draught @ Traverse Brewing Company in Williamsburg, Michigan. Moderate malt accented aroma with hints of caramel, toffee and toast, along with a light touch of fruit (cherry mainly) and leather. Lightly bready malts with hints of cookies, pine and flowers. Loaded with diacetyl in an unpleasant way, unlike the brown. Pretty light in character overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours more brown than amber, with no head. O.k. lacing. Aroma has a little maltiness to it and thats it. Flavor has decent amount of sweet malt with the sourness again in this brew.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. Bottle: Cloudy amber with a fading white head. Aromas of sweet dark fruits (light plum, light apple), some malt characteristics. Flavor was disappointing, overly sour old fruit.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle pour at festival. Fair looking amber ale. Slight head. Slight souring of aroma which seems to pervade this breweries beers. Lightly malty in flavor with a touch of caramel but still the sourness which just doesn’t belong. Perhaps the least offensive product I had at the festival from this brewer.
