Darker clear, brown with a slight tinge of red. Nose of blackberries, some funk. Earthy. Taste is all sorts of sour, a great variety of flavors, but no balance. Some lingering acidity, almost no carbonation to speak of. Interesting, but not great. The nose over promises. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ryan. Nutty brown color with a subtly foamy, beige color... Not much head forms at all, looks rather oily & thick actually. Aroma is borderline vinous with some light cherry & red grape. Perhaps a hint of lacto yeast but very subdued & mild overall. Taste is the same way... Very mild, nearly watery with small notes of grape, vanillin, wood, & dark malt. Not sour... But not really sweet, either. Just kind of taking up volume in my mouth. Severely under carbonated for the style; oily mouth feel, strange. Overall, not a great brew. Just nothing really happening with this one. Slightly astringent, vague fruitiness in the finish.

Smells like a stable -- sweaty horses and manure. Tastes of sour cherry but very weak, and the flavor disappears almost instantly. Very little carbonation. $10.99 for a 12-oz bottle -- I want my money back.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a darkish red with a medium tan colored head. Aroma of red fruits, lactic sourness, touches of funk and cobwebs, brett. Mild cherries and toasted oak notes. Flavor is tart, funky, lots of fruity and oaky sweetness. Medium sourness. Decent amount of caramel and fruit sweetness. Slick bodied, with tingling carbonation. Finishes on a lactic sour note. This is an improvement on Two Bros sour program.

dfearnley (2034) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle to tulip A little sour, candied fruit, a touch of lactic. Reddish amber, no head. Some cherry sour, a little muted bitterness, but pretty plain. This is thick and oily. Not a great beer only because its so muted.

kbudd19 (1009) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear red brown pour, very little head and almost no lacing to speak of. Aroma, mild tartness, bit of acidic some vinious. Taste - flat, no carbonation, mild bit of sourness. Too flat for me.

Ferris (14786) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle - Vinous, sour vinegar, and some slight cherry. Cloudy brown maroon with a thin white head. Funky yeast, light oak, vinous and a slight sourness. This had the potential for greatness but was just to mellow and light.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle a friend brought back from a recent trip to Chicago. Medium brown and very little carbonation. Moderately sour, well-balanced with a slight malty sweetness. A very nice, distinctive sour.

Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
A clear copper brown with a thin bubbled head, no pop when cork is removed. In aroma, nice classic sour ale with lactic acid notes, light cherry notes, Brett, very nice. In mouth, a light sweetish sour ale with cherries, cork notes, a bit of butter notes, lactic acid, decent if a bit light, but a bit expensive at 11$. Bottle from genes sausage store.
