popery (2049) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 25, 2010
A decent sour, though a bit mild. This one is mostly acidic, but the beer is rather light in flavor and feel, at least relatively fresh, so its still fairly easy to drink. Bacchus pours a deep red with a shade or two of brown, small ecru head. Aroma is too mild but there are some nice sweet and sour cherry notes and hints of grain. Flavor is a bit better with more acidity, a light funk and mild malt. Feel is a bit thin, which isnt really a big surprise, but its still a fairly easy beer to drink.

An easy drinking sour. Pours brown with a red tinge. Mostly malt, some cherry, wood, gentle sourness, a bit of vinegar. A nice "session sour", if you will.
