1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells like a stable -- sweaty horses and manure. Tastes of sour cherry but very weak, and the flavor disappears almost instantly. Very little carbonation. $10.99 for a 12-oz bottle -- I want my money back.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle. Pours a darkish red with a medium tan colored head. Aroma of red fruits, lactic sourness, touches of funk and cobwebs, brett. Mild cherries and toasted oak notes. Flavor is tart, funky, lots of fruity and oaky sweetness. Medium sourness. Decent amount of caramel and fruit sweetness. Slick bodied, with tingling carbonation. Finishes on a lactic sour note. This is an improvement on Two Bros sour program.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to tulip
A little sour, candied fruit, a touch of lactic.
Reddish amber, no head.
Some cherry sour, a little muted bitterness, but pretty plain.
This is thick and oily. Not a great beer only because it’s so muted.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear red brown pour, very little head and almost no lacing to speak of. Aroma, mild tartness, bit of acidic some vinious. Taste - flat, no carbonation, mild bit of sourness. Too flat for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Vinous, sour vinegar, and some slight cherry. Cloudy brown maroon with a thin white head. Funky yeast, light oak, vinous and a slight sourness. This had the potential for greatness but was just to mellow and light.

A clear copper brown with a thin bubbled head, no pop when cork is removed. In aroma, nice classic sour ale with lactic acid notes, light cherry notes, Brett, very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL., and dispensed to a tulip showing a clarified, mahogany color, and some persistence to the modest layer of light tan head foam that appeared more as a ring & film. The aroma was sweet but tart, fruity, with light but noticeable yeasty funk, and subtle woodiness. The taste defined the fruit notes better as plum, raisin, and dark cherry, along with some light, oak induced vanilla. Medium bodied, more of a sour nature in the flavor, with good acidity combined with a spritzy enough carbonation to carry the flavor notes well. Low bitterness and a dry finish. Maybe served a bit too cold, but mellowed nicely as it warmed.
