From notes. Somehow this drinking session evaded my developments. Enjoyed at Dougs house on October 28. 12 oz bottle. The pour is a nice mahogany color with a lighter bit of ruby shining through and a small egg shell colored head that fizzes away pretty quickly. The aroma is pretty sour right up front. There is a well-balanced oak throughout without a lot of wine or tequila character coming through. The malts come through a bit and I think there is a hint of light tart fruit. Its lightly sour, but nothing thats really overdone. The flavor is similar. The maltiness and barrel characters are really all thats there without a discerning liquid from the barrel. The light fruit balances out and keeps you interested. Its sour, but not overly so. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a bright carbonation and a lingeringly woody sour finish. This is really interesting.

Beaver (1746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2017
12 oz bottle, bottled on 2/12/16. Pours dark ruby amber with a fizzy light tan head that retains fairly well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is floral vanilla with tart vinous fruits and some funk.

The flavor is lots of sweet and tart fruity sour with a vinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.

Overall, its interesting with lots of sweet tart fruit and vinous notes from the wine. I didnt pick up much tequila.

Dogbrick (12501) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2017
This beer is a slightly hazy reddish-mahogany color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, tart fruit and yeast. Light-bodied with a vinous oak character and notes of tart berries, yeast and subtle tequila. The finish is moderately sour with a grape and tequila aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

BeerandBlues2 (12767) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy brown with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is medium caramel and toast malt with light acetic acid, Chardonnay and Tequila notes with light vanilla and coconut. Flavor is acetic cherries and plums, caramel and toast malt, lightly buttery Chardonnay, vanilla Tequila and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

kevinator (2150) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Good sour ale. Aroma and flavors were subtle with tart fruit, funk wine and booze. Some oak as well. The tequila was a little much. Nice clear color with a moderate head. Smooth palate with a dry finish.

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 13, 2016
This sour brown ale stops of being abrasively sour, but is quite assertive. Nice if simple malt profile with sour cherry, green Apple and oak on the nose and palate. Prickly carbonation.

Aroma is strawberries/cherries/vinous and very slightly musty. The flavor is berries/vinous, medium sugar, malts and a very tart/sweetish/puckering dry finish.
