2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep brown rusty color with a touch of ruby color on the edge. No visible bubble or head. Aromas are tart cherry, earthy funk and some vinous cider vinegar. On the palate its sour and very acidic. A bit to much vinegar comes through making this a palate wrecker, mouth puckering beer thats good for a sip or two but overall a bit to acidic for my palate. Maybe a touch more sweetness and a little carbonation would liven it up. The wild flavors are all there I just wish they were a lil more subtle.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7 oz bottle shared with Pinkzambia mostly ear deep redish brown with a small thin head even when poured aggressively. Big sweet and sour aroma. Classic Flemish notes but also some red licorice rope and other fruity hints. Big very tart flavor. Dry and very low PH. More straight forward brown sour in the flavor. Very full and big and sour with lots of flavor Very tasty!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Kind of cloudy brown with a small ring head. Aroma of sour apples and corn nuts. Perhaps, a little bit of the high desert sage brush in the aroma as well. Super sour and astringent. What I like about this is that it stands out from the rest of the sour ales by being not as sweet as most. Something a bit cardboard box in the aftertaste as well as vinegar, Holy pH balance batman! Thanks Indiana_Red for the roadtrip find!

Small bottle shared by Ferris. Brown pour, not much head. Aroma...hmmm some tartness but its somewhat metallic... Taste, sour ketchup, very little carbonation, a bit of metal, maybe it was just me, but this tasted off.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the new 375 mL bottles. Mahogany color, low carbonation even with a pretty aggressive pour. Some tart cherry and wet wood on the nose, with pretty volatile acidity. Tart fruit and some funk, pretty flat, some balsamic character. Okay, but far from the best.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper amber hue with off white head. Aroma is lactic, straw, acetic, nutty. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and high carbonation. Taste is sour throughout with a slight tannic following and CO2 sharpness through the finish. Overall this is a really nice sour.

Tastes like burning. So goddamn sour that any other positive qualities, which do exist, are practically wiped away immediately.
