Rated based on notes taken 3 Nov 2012 -- On tap at the Dia de la Muerta release party at the Brewery! Great Sour. It’s important to note that Freetail produced the first sours that I tried. I’ve come a long way.

Bottle. The look is reddish brown in color, decent light tan head, and dark. The smell is wood, tart, fruit, tang, wild, funk, and nice wine like character. The taste is tangy, wood, fruits, funk, nice rounded complexity. Good feel. bleeng (1681) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bomber purchased at Freetail. Dark hazy brown with a very small head. Nose is huge tartness cherries, tartness-nice and inviting. Taste is the same with lots of tartness, very dry, Nice base of cherries (?) and lots of tanginess tart. Delicious and a great representation of the Belgian Rodenbach style-well done Freetail! harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
My first Freetail sour....
Pours a dark, weak coffee brown with a fine sheet of light tan foam. Smells like tart, dark grape juices, some currant, a little oak, some leather and balsamico. Lovely nose. Nice and sour with cherry, grape, and raisin. Some oak, some sugar, a little bit of tobacco leaf. Light bodied balanced well with the slight sweetness and medium carb with a watering finish. I really, really enjoyed this beer. Would love to have more. Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Deep amber brew, slight head. Nose is slightly sour with dark fruit, oak, and leather. Lively and full bodied - flavor is cherry, wood, vinous. Delicious TX brewed sour, glad I grabbed a couple to age. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2013
The beer is reddish amber hued with an inch of foamy beige head. The aroma offers red wine, tannins, oak, acetic yeast, port, currants. Smells nice. The flavor follows suit, offering nice complexity and balance. A nice tart finish with alcohol content well disguised. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A delightful beer to sip and savor.
