750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of sourness, some bourbon and oak, caramel malts, hints of dark fruits, and some light notes of acetone. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer but it’d be phenomenal if the light acetone was removed.

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
