2008 san diego beer fest - poured a purple colored muddy mess with no head. That being said, it was rather inviting because I love me a muddy mess. Nose has a deep malty background with firm blackberry notes and a little sweet cake and frosting hints. Thick mouth and pretty damn malty yet bursting with berries and a nice sufficient sourness..the malt and berry interplay was outstanding here and the sourness was quite nice...not funky yet not fake. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 20, 2008
SDFOB-2008. Draft. I’m new to sours. Very sour berry flavors but not puckary tart. How do you tell if a sour has gone bad? Does it turn sweet? Don’t know if sours are my thing yet. bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 20, 2008

Draft at Liar’s, Alpine. It finally looks like the boys at Strauss are putting out some nice brews. I believe this had a barrel aged tag in the title. This did lend a nice oaky aspect to the already tasty blend of dark berries and sticky tartness. I like it...

On tap at Liar’s Club in Alpine, CA. Relatively still with little carbonation and an opaque mahogany color with no head. The nose is a sweet blend of black currants, molasses, smoke and juniper berries with a slightly tart character. The flavors are raisin, brown sugar and caramel followed up by a medium funky sourness and a slightly acidic finish.
