Nice aroma malty slightly sour. Amber in color this was a very nice easy to drin sour amber ale. Nothing much to it.
Big Wood 09. Stained wood, deepest ruby pour. Bad anise flavor. lowest in a lineup of awesome beers that day. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2009
On tap at Brouwer’s Big Wood 09. Poured a reddish bronze with little to no head. Anise and some lactic, fruity malts on the nose - like sour patch kids meeting good&plenty. Mostly good&plenty. Makes me cringe a little - lowest rating of the day for me.
