COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in celebration of Uinta’s 20th Birthday, this American Sour Brown Ale flaunts significant acidity balanced by flavorful Abbey and Chocolate malts and a modest amount of hops. A distinct tartness on the palate combines with notes of toffee and earthiness.

Nice sour! Really nice brown gold color, perfect body for the style. Taste is mildly sour first, and finishes dry sour. Enjoyable like a lambic, or other soured Belgian.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour & sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour & sweet flavor with a medium sweet & sour finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer.

brenn79 (1519) - Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2014
750 corked n’ caged bottle, just over a year old- Pours hazy autumn orange with a one finger crackly white head that reduces quickly leaving a collar. The aroma is malty, caramel malts, tart and vinegar, dark fruits. The taste is pretty much the same, pretty tart, not a fan of the malts here, chocolate malts and caramel seem out of place, not sure if it’s because of the age or if it just tastes like this. The finish is the best part, that’s when all the sour funky flavors start to dominate really saving this beer. Decent

GothGargoyle (1201) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Reddish brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is baked apple, caramel. Tart on the palate, sticky mouthfeel, sour finish. Flavours are tart strawberries, fig, plums. Ok but a Lille lackluster.

MrFecesious (959) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Hog shack bottle share. Slightly hazy amber and big cap that quickly reduces. Aroma of sour fig, meat, very overripe cherry, earth. Taste is super sour. Not really deep.

b3shine (5425) - Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks decent; a slightly cloudy gold with white lacing. Smells bready and mildly yeasty. Tastes Like a sour! Nothing like it smells like. Pleasantly tart with some lemon notes and a touch of earthiness. Enjoyable, and tastes much more robust and sour than it smells.

kerenmk (2371) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks DSG. Clear brown. Delicate chocolate and caramel aroma, mildly sour taste with hints of nuts, full-bodied and no carbonation.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark tawny with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is tart cherries and plums, cookie and toast malt with earthy hops. Flavor is tart fruits, toast and sweet malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

AWISLguy (1289) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2014
750ml bottle from La Primera in Andersonville. Cellared 2 months, but with a 3/27/13 bottle date. Pours a reddish copper with a white head with great retention. Aroma has a lot of stone fruits, earthiness and some oak. Tangy and funky. Taste is of cranberry, tart cherry, barnyard, some woodiness and funk. Light to medium bodied, tangy and tart. Finishes tart with hints of sweetness, and very earthy fruity. Just not as clean as would be ideal.

tomer (1697) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 27, 2014
At a tasting, thanks DSG, clear light brown colour, aroma of barnyard, strawberry jam, dark chocolate and dark berries, flavour of chocolate, dark fruits, caramel and nuts, quite sour with a relativly light sweetness. Nice and pleasant.
