2010 Hop in the City festival beer - Pours clear brown with a reddish hue and a beige head. The aroma has light sourness, cherries, light must and a hint of spice. Medium crisp body that is a bit grainy and it has restrained carbonation. The flavor starts with some mineral/medicinal traits followed by some light cherry, a bit of tin, some pepper and an expected thin malt presence. The finish has the same with a hint of caramel and some pennies. This is okay for Schlafly’s first attempt at a sour, but no way this is up with established examples of sour ales. However, this is a line priced beer on tap, so dollar for dollar value is decent.
