Am amazing beer pours well and has just the right amount of sour. I first tried it from the tap and the bottle doesn’t disappoint. WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - OCT 28, 2012
Aroma of black cherries and sherry with mild sourness. Flavour was a blend of sour and sweet, with a hop finish. Not harsh at all and a delicateness found within the deep (though not heavy) malts. No trace of alcohol. Was surprised at first that this didn’t blow me away, but it melted slowly into my tastebuds. Thanks for bringing sours to Canada, Driftwood!

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2015, shared by Sid, 2012. Carame malt and sour cherry, light acetic sourness. Delicious. Gerbeer (3745) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours red/brown with light head. Aromas of roasted malt, light wood, and a whiff of vinegar. Subdued in terms of being sour compared to the original Bird of Prey or a Belgian sour brune but nonetheless very nice. Flavors of toasted malts, oak barrel, and slightly sour pitted fruit. Worth putting in the cellar and trying again in a few months RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a dirty brown with aromas of sour fruit, light malts and a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavours are sour cherries, dates, grain, the barrel ageing adds a nice complement to the beer, and finishes with a long, smooth berry tartness. Nice.

Pours a deep ruby/brown, two-finger head that dissipated quickly. Not much lacing.
Aroma: A definite peachy, over-ripe apple sourness. There is also some noticeable malt in the nose as well, some biscuit and subtle fruitiness.
Taste/Mouthfeel: The beer opens up with a nice kick of carbonation and some slight bitterness. The flavors roll in with a restrained sourness that is quenching at first but drops off quickly, attributing tart and ripe peach, cherry, apple flavors and then moves into some malt sweetness on the back end. The finish is drying but there are some sweet after flavors.
Overall, I was hoping for more from Driftwood, but it is a solid brew nonetheless. The beer has nothing that is overpowering, but it does not have anything that grabs your attention either. It is a well-brewed sour-brown, but definitely not the best release to have come out of their doors

Pours a hazy brown/redish with white head and little to no lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, funk and some sourness. Taste ihas some dried fruits, brown sugar, oak, light vinous notes, funk, lactic, a bit acetic. Medium to low body and medium carbonation. tom10101 (6082) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle (650 ml). Thanks to dresden! Lightly hazy copper with a small/medium persistent beige head and good lacing. Aroma of red fruits, light caramel and nuts along with some wooden presence and light sourness. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with red fruits, caramel and light wood. Medium body. Alcohol is well hidden. Good Sour Brown. With a little more wood/acetic notes, it could challenge the best of the style. JulienHuxley (5806) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle shared by Tom10101, thanks! Clear dark red/brown pour with lacey off-white head. Aroma of very light acetic notes, mild cherry juice aromas, very light caramel/brown sugar. Taste is tart, very light acidity, light fruitiness, I would have liked to taste moar cherries. Wood could have helped too. Palate is light and well carbed. Good beer that could have used a little oomph. solidfunk (8941) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Nice wild. Sour plum and apricot. Mash malt. A little dose of bretta as well. A subtle note of tin. Finishes sour with fizzy carbonation. Pours reddish brown and without much head or lacing. Thanks to Liam.
