esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of fruit, apple, caramel, sweet malts thats a sour. Taste of a cinnamon apple, caramel with a mild sour and alcoholic finish that is somewhat sour. My first sour ale I guess I thought it would be a bit more sour - not that I wanted it that way.

bottle. Pours deep brownish red with a small off white head. The nose is caramel, plum, and raisin. Def. sour taste. Carbonation is nice and stron on the tounge. Easy to drink but not my cup of tea. Im sure those that enjoy ciders would also enjoy this.

Cybercat (5555) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
This comes out of the tap a beautiful opaque chocolate brown, very appetizing. Strong aroma is more like a hard apple cider than a beer. Flavor is mouth-filling and pleasing; apple taste dominates, and there is a hint of hop bitterness. Finish is very smooth and cider-like.

My all-time favorite! Sweet without being cloying, more complex than many single-malt scotches I enjoy, just... wow. The most interesting, complex, enjoyable, unique beer Ive tasted in 15 years of drinking and brewing. A must try.
