Bottle, shared by ucusty in the Phish parking lot pre-show. Love drinking sours in the lot before shows. Its become a tradition of sorts. Thanks Todd and Dave for complying so nicely. This was very sour and delicious. I didn’t take any notes, but I do remember that I didn’t taste much maple. Tasted like a sour brown and one of the better sours I’ve had from Jackie O’s.

22 oz bottle shared by Kan. Thanks! Pours a deep dark brownish pour, near opaque, the edges open up a bit to a brughter touch of mahogany brown with a small brownish tan head, dies to a tiny head, laces very small. Aromas are a plethora of flavors with sour acidity, touches of funky brett, sweet vanilla and wet oak pair with maple syrup sweetness and some caramel and toffee. As it warms, good lemons, cherries, and cranberries. Sour pugency grows. Initial is lighter bodied preaching a moderate acidity, sour cherries, lemons, cranberries with some lactic acidity, touches of vinegar. Really grows with a solid sourness, touches of sweeter syrup but it seems most of that sweetness was eaten by the bugs. Into the backend, throws a good acidity, touches of red wine vinegar, sour cherries. Touches of cranberries, raisins, the sourness grows in a wave. Finish leaves a good sourness, touches of sweet malts. Really nice. Good job, Brad. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Clear, dark brown ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet offers cocoa, red wine, dark cherries and mild oak. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with gentle carbonation. The flavor is of black cherries, sour cherries, light chocolate, mild nuttiness and oaken acidity. Tart, tongue-numbing finish that dries way out. Many thanks to darkguardian for sharing this world class bottle of beer! decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2011
