Thanks cards04 for this sample. Maroon colour. Great sour and grain aroma. So sour it bites in the nostrils. Tate is sour fruity lactose grain. I detected something a little off but not off. It was the bourbon which is subtle and effective. Smooth palate.

Pours opaque mahogany with light tan head. Aroma has strongly sour apple overtone. Flavor is mainly sour apple with roast malt undertone. Fizz and body are average, but OK.

HMOG 2015. Definitely one of the more sour beers on the day of a long list of sours and wilds. Light cherry flavors and aromas but overall the lactic acid here is what gets you.

HMOG 2015. This one won the most sour beer of the day for me. Whoa. Murky brown/mahogany. Big tart aged cherries, vinegar, bit funky.

Bottle: Swampy, murky copper & burnt amber, fading khaki head turns quickly to a foam. Aroma of cherry, balsamic vinegar, cinnamon spice, acetone, & lactic acid. Flavor is heavy acetone, white wine vinegar, wood, acidic lemon, perfume, & modest cheesy funk. Kind of heavy on the senses.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked and capped from queenholly poured into a tulip. Dark red with small/medium with small/medium beige head. Aroma is tart cherries, medium body, well/medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is dark candy sugar, tart, some subdued cherries, some vinegar, and some bourbon. I prefer most of the other Uplands selections I have had.

Ugh. Bourbon and upland. Brown sugar, leather, grape juice and painful acetic acid. The bourbon is offensive on this "epic" flander. Pickles buttered popcorn. No go.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown, with a hint of amber into this snifter - The head is fine bubbled khaki, with two fingered head that retains fairly well here. The nose is deep cellar, caramel and brown sugar, moving to feint earthen oak presence. Itís a touch jarring, frankly. Thankfully, the flavor profile is more appealing by my estimation. It is initial light tart, with some acetic presence, moving to dark cherry notes, moving to oak tannins. Some lactic notes come through, with lingering spice and caramel toffee notes. Bourbon presence is meek at best - but I suppose thatís alright - Anyway - itís a nice attempt.
