Holiday Ale Fest 2009. Interesting beer for sure, tasted more like a beer that wasn’t built to be sour as the roastiness and sharp lactic sourness clashed. Thin bodied, quick chocolate note up front but almost instantly into the sharp sourness. Faint hint of cherry and soft oak.

Holiday Ale Fest... Poured dark brown with a tan head. Lactic aroma. Chocolate, dark malts. Lightly bitter with a wonderful tart finish. Acidic and berry-like fruits created an overall nice complexity.
