From tap. Cloudy orange pour with a thin white cap. Nose is sour and funky, and while the initial taste is tart and fruity it quickly becomes dry on the attenuated finish.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger fizzy beige head. The nose is a mix of sweet caramel and toasted malt with a slightly sour cherry twang. The flavor is very acidic and tart with a definite wildness to it. A bit heavy on the acidity for my tastes in the style. Some lingering tart fruitiness and cereal grain on the finish. Medium bodied and a little clingy with fine fizzy active carbonation. Not a winner for me, there’s too much acidity and not enough funk in here for me.

HighlanderOne (1344) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Poured from bottle. AROMA - apple cider vinegar. APPEARANCE - brown ale, no head. FLAVOR - sour apple, malt, citrus, other fruit. PALATE - plenty sour, but not too much. OVERALL - not bad for a sour.

Tastes like a brown ale sour mix. Wait that's what is. A little too much sour for my taste but this is a really good brewery. Solid brews and mix. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - pours reddish brown tan head - nose/taste of sour caramel, florals, fruity funk - medium body. Lots of foaming head lost half the bottle, but what’s left was good.

It pours amber with a slight haze. It has a brown head and ruby hues. It has some caramel aromas, herbs, and floral/flowery elements. There are flavors of caramel, herb, flowers, earthly elements, and a sweet start with a sour finish. It has a light medium body with a sour finish and a slight tart element in the finish. Overall it is a unique blend of elements that produces a flowery and earthy combination that starts sweet and finishes sour.

At SAVOR. Poured a hazy golden straw color with a fizzy head. Aroma was citrus, tropical fruits. Very strong sour notes. Light floral notes, pretty tasty, though not a lot of nuance.

Savor 2016: Dried leaves nose. Opaque copper, thin head. Extremely tart currant and green olives. Medium body, very tart, easy carbonation. Weird.

Savor. Pours a cloudy red. Not overly lactose sour and crisp. Decent with lingering taste.
