4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn NY. This beer is not for everyone. Extremely tart and fruity in taste. A great complex flavor that reminded me a little of an aged lambic but not as full bodied or heavy. It is actually quite crisp and refreshing to drink. I love to get it in the summer. Overall a great unique beer.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Brown colour, with a small head that leaves a good ring and some lace. Aroma is tart, acid, cider, vinegar, combined with sweetness from red or dark fruits, cherries, oak cask, wood. Medium body and an active carbonation. Taste is acidic too, oak, red fruits, some citruses notes, chocolate, vinegar, cider., vanilla. Very complex and a hell of an extraordinary beer. Put another one in my list of perfect ten.

Dark cherry brown body. Aromas of sour cherries, and green relish. On the tongue I am getting sour cherries, a touch of vinegar, a touch of relish, and a smidgen of clove.
I am loving this off-beat sour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep red/brown with an everlasting, meringue-thick, white head. Aromas of balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, cherries, sourdough bread, and oak. Intense sourness up front leads to barnyard funk,cherries, fresh baked wheat bread, and finally vanilla. Extreme carbonation creates a fresh look at every sip before it dissipates and gives way for a long, contemplative finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Incredibly nice ale. The taste is slightly acidic, with distinct taste of cherries. Its character has little in common with champagne, as it is very sparkling in the mouth. Acid is taken over by a slightly sweet vinous feeling that you can also find in the best dessert wines. Really refreshing and different. Perfect summer drink for many events.

Poured, over carbed murky red brown.
Lactic acid sour cherry fruit and sweetness on nose.
Soft palette with a sherberty wasabi effect up the nose.
Strong flavour of bold fruit, minerals ,wood and aged Balsamic vinegar.
Interesting drink, a sipper. But little too sweet for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sour cherry, toffee, berries, balsamic vinegar. Appearance is redish brown crystal clear with small head. Taste is light sour cherry with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Berries, balsamic vinegar, woody. Palate is medium light. A crisp beer but with a slickness that lingers. Carbonated well, champagne like. Overall a very nice beer. Unique in flavor, sweetness blends well with sourness. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Carson Street Deli, Pittsburgh. Pours reddish brown, white head. Aroma is sour, vinegar, oaky character. Flavor is cherry, sweet dark fruits, and lots of sour vinegar. Pretty much every one of my sour reviews will qualify that they’re not my style but this is kinda good. Aroma is ok, but flavor is solid.
