Draft @ birdsall house in Peekskill, NY. Pours pinkish red with minimal head. This is a smooth, silky and slightly acidic sour ale. No carbonation at all. Notes of tomato juice, herb tea, flowers, honey and oranges. A real tasty and delicious experiment.

2012-08-18. Pink with a small white head and lace. 3+ Interesting aroma, florals, roases, light oaky wood and a light funk to it. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly sour with a sort of cherry and floral character. 7++ Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Pretty solid. Would like to try this again and spend some more time with it. Small sample, bottle, Campground Brewdown 2012 shared by yobdoog

jackl (7093) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours deep rusted cranberry red with a small white head. The nose is bright and floral. Aromas of flower petals, herbs, and light cranberry abound. Nice. The taste is soft vinous red fruits and summery herbs. Floral and soft, sweet. The finish has hints of tart fruits, slightly buggy. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, very nice, tasty. This beer’s worth the price.

AdamChandler (4571) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Looks like grapefruit juice. Minor head. Smells like oranges, flowers and juniper berries. Sort of a champagne mouthfeel, tastes like candi sugar and lots of floral notes, some honey and orange juice.

sneaks2210 (46) - New York, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Pours a hazy dark pink, verging on ruby red with a foamy white head. Loads of bubbles streaming up the side of the glass. The aroma has plenty of floral notes, sour cherries, red grapefruit, and a light Brett funkiness. The taste is nice and subtle. It’s sour, slightly bitter with a floral and citric backbone. Medium bodied and dry. A delicious, very easy to drink sour ale.

Pours a wonderful red color. Aroma is floral, tart, sour cherries, cranberry. Flavor has a floral note, some good berries and is nice and tart. Juicy and invites you to keep sipping. Really good. Thanks to boamr for the share!

hivemind (893) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle @ Gingerman with streets and James. Ruby red pour, nose of airy, fleeting red fruit. Palate is very subtle red fruit like strawberry and cherry. Tart yet not sour and not as robust or packed full of fruit as I was hoping. But that kept me sipping. James said it was much better on tap but he’s a stupid butt.

jcartamdg (3196) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours bright red with no head. Aroma of funk, vinegar, cherries and flowers. Taste follows very subtle, the sour is there but not over the top. Very nice sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
