hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Cloudy mahogany ale with little to no head. The nose is a mélange of roasted caramel, lemon and sour cherries. Full-bodied with a 1%-milk mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is a fantastic marriage of toasted oak, sour cherries and buttery toffee. Finishes tangy and fruity with loads of purple grapes. Think Irish ale meets Flanders red. Huge thanks to landhoney for sharing this bottle of world class beer!

Bottle pour on the bus in Asheville. Abrasive vinegar. Somewhat funky. Old Sour Patch Kids (in a good way). The taste is similarly angular. Starburst candies and concentrated dirty spoiling peach. Raspberry tart. Light body, active carbonation. Pretty tasty.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
RBWG, bus bottle. Another sick sole comp beer. Really tasty. Lots of tartness with a hint of red fruit, cherry definitely sticks out. I love this brewery and almost everything they make. RBSG should def be in Portland this year!

Sample from a 750 ml bottle at RBWG. Pours a hazy orange amber color witha small plus off white head. The aroma and flavor have a ton of tart fruit ; cherry, berries, nice acidity, soft woody notes with a light spice. Great drinking sour.

Bottle on the bus during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Great stuff - thanks for this one! Tart fruits abound with good acetic twang. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, tangy fruits to finish with tart berries and mild leather. Very nice.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2014
RBWG Bus beer. Murky brown, thin ring of foam. Smells like cherry, lemon, oak, and balsamic vinegar. Smooth, tart and decadent, man. Lots o sour, tart fruit, lots of winey notes, too. So good...
