On tap at Sierra Grille Northampton. Poured reddish brown into a stemmed glass. One of the easier drinking sours I’ve tried, good entry beer in this category because it is more sweet than sour. Lots of flavors going on in this one including raisin, cherry, and oak. Good stuff.

Mørk brun farve med lys beige skum. Lukt av frukt, bær. Smak av syrlig frukt, bær og en anelse karamell. Søt og vinøs. Vinmonopolet.

Nydelig duft av syrlige kirsebær. Dyp mørk rød farge. Tynt lag skum, noe heng langs kant. Nydelig frisk smak av kirsebær med en fin litt syrlig ettersmak.

Sample thanks to Kraddel. Dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, red grapes. Taste is sweet with a really strong taste of red grapes. I like red grapes but I don’t like red wine so I’m not a real fan.

From my notes, had on draft. The aroma is sweet, caramel, malty, soft acidity, fruity, cherry. The cherry is brite in the flavor, notes of chocolate in the finish. Not bad.

Esto no es cerveza, es vino!! Tiene un equilibrio muy interesante, olor a vino y sabor mitad y mitad.

Aroma is mild earthy funkiness, some vinager and dark sugars. Taste is a sour and tartiness off the bat. Some impressions of a balsamic vinager here. Some dark sugar flavors on finish. Body is a very dark amber with a frothy head that retains very well.

Appearance - dark brown. Mild head. Aroma - slight funk. Hints of red wine. Mouth - slight dry feel. Medium carbs. Mild aftertaste Taste - hints of oaky red wine with very mild funk. Not mouth puckering but mild tart flavor. Aftertaste doesn't linger. Mild and refreshing. Not as bright as other sours. Overall - pretty nice. I prefer something with a brighter profile and more bite.

1 toasty sweetness, no hop aroma, raisin 2 light brown with a dissipating tan head 3 Caramel sweetness with some cherry and almond 4 medium body with average carbonation, slight astringency 5 An enjoyable sour brown, I would have liked more sourness to balance the caramel sweetness
