5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle:   Pours a pinkish hue, in the glass its a definite rosey like amber, very soft pinkish hued head, large and sudsy, with spotty lacing.   Very faint cherry pie like filling on the nose.   Otherwise its a tart sweetness that I also smell.   Doesn’t seem like a big beer from here.   Tart and dry on the tongue, clean, a little bit of tart cherries make up the background.   This is not your puckering Wild/Sour Ale.   Its much more subtle than that.   Its a moderate Wild/Sour Ale.   Clean, tart, with some unripened like cherry aspects.   I was expecting a bigger beer, but as is its clean and refreshing.   Would get a higher rating if it was a bit more fruity and tart, but still enjoyable.

Bottle I found in Jersey with Paul, and shared with Lauren and Mike. Pours a hazed ruby with a medium sized white head. Sour malt, cherry and fruit. Funk and musk. Medium bodied, cherry and acid. A touch of paper and light sweetness. Cherry, tart acid. Paper again, but really the only bothersome thing about it. Long funk on the finish, tart cherry and lactic acid.

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of mild sour cherry, grain, and a hint of lemon. It pours a transparent amber with a pinkish-white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of mild lemon. The finish has mild sour cherry with a touch of grain. It’s light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.

This beer was not what people were expecting but it isn’t horible. Slight tartness and cherry, lighter appearance.

750ml Bottle. The pour was a clear cranberry orange with a small (less than 1 finger) light pink fizzy head that quickly diminished, down to just a small collar and had fair runny lacing.

The aroma was of sour cherries right off the bat with a mild grain malt and a musty Brett yeast and possessed a light fruity ester and a mild bubblegum scent.

The taste was sweetly tart with a strong note of cherries early on, progressing with a bold funky yeast presence and a sour cherry finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with the yeasty sour cherry taste fading slowly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a fizzy champagne-like carbonation.

Overall this was a tasty and refreshing brew with a very powerful fruit presence and a decent sweet-sour ending...

[bottle]
Sour pickle juice aroma that’s not quite the level of a lambic, with cherry and toasty toffee. Hazy orange-copper under a pop fizz. Pale ale caramel flavour hides behind sour, fizzy cherry. Very refreshing and with a clean finish. Very high carbonation, light body, very clean.

JLLSU (242) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bomber---> Burnt Hickory tulip. Pours a light amber with a hint of red and quickly disappating white head. Aroma is pretty malty with a small hint of cherry. Taste is light, mildly sour cherry and nondescript malt. Nice lively palate. Neither very sour or very cherry. Not bad, but kind of a letdown.

3.5
Salmoniform (1281) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Poured from bottle to snifter. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is earthy Brett, straw, lactic, pie cherries, white peppercorn. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and high carbonation. Taste is wheat sweetness initially with a tart sourness throughout. Overall this is a nice farmhouse brew.

Date: May 19, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: footbalm Description: Orangish red pour with some head that faded quick and left a thin layer on top. Fruity, yeasty and light funk. Taste was a tart fruit and grainy/bready with a dry finish. Had to crack this one for my birthday today. Thanks Eric!

One of the most interesting looking beers I’ve ever seen...like some purple dye was mixed in to a cloudy blonde. Tart and cherry, though a bit heavier than you might like for the style, it’s not bad, and very drinkable. I also like the low abv. Would go well as a dessert beer. If you have a friend who wants to try a sour but is nervous about it, this more mild example might be a good idea.
