Bah, they have been doing mix better with their sours but missed the boat again here. Very faint vinegar tartness, on a flat thin amber ale

Has a bit of a licorice feel to the nose. Looks a bit like jšgermeister. Big sour notes on the tongue. Finishes a bit neater and cleaner than Iíd like but it does go fantastically well with the pizza.

[Growler] courtesy of BDR. Pours a beautiful caramelly amber with little to no head. Aroma offers little tartness, lots of toasty malt, a touch of caramel, and a light fruitiness. Flavor is mostly toasted malts, light cherry, very faint tartness, and not much else. Thin mouthfeel.

Clean as a whistle brown. A heavily malted nose with the slightest hint of powdery chocolate. Sour, metallic with some dog breath flavour to it. A cereal finish lingers for a short while.

From BDRís growler. Red color. Caramel aroma. Lightly sour, just barely. There is some yeast in the flavor, and the lightest hint of acid and hops on the tongue. Clean, flavorless finish.

The aroma is sweet and cherry like. A little chocolate in there. The taste is very grainy. Faintly chocolate. Cherry. A little tart. Smooth finish Thanks to Cletus for the growler.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber with a thick tan head. Aroma of cherries and sweet malt. Flavor has a slight sourness with tart cherries and sweet malt. A decent sour ale -- no acidity, more of a "mild" sour, and pretty drinkable.

Growler at the CL Rosso release. Poured a clearorange body underneath a smaller white head. Aroma is all over the place with notes of wild flowers, orange, rye, chocolate, cherries. The flavor is tart and tangy and reminds me of a sweet and sour candy waffer from twenty years ago. This beer was all over the place and Iím shocked to see that itís listed as a sour. Not a fan.

3/10/08 notes: on tap, brewpub. Pours a beautiful ripe-cherry red, with a small head. Aroma is tart, fruity and of hops. To go along with a light body, flavor is immediately tart, with dominant notes of sour cherry, sour apple, and perhaps under-ripe pear. Maybe some bread and malt flavor in there that keeps the flavor from tasting too sharp. I am impressed by the uniqueness of this brew, and it finishes fairly clean and dry. I generally agree with the other reviewers that this beer is a little lost in place since its flavor is too tart to session, yet the palate suggests a lighter beer.
