Pours a pinkish red with a slight white head. Slight lacing on the glass. Beautiful color to this beer, looks really inviting.

Smell is a bit of tart berry and a lot of lactic sourness. Not all that different from what one usually encounters with this style, but I was hoping for a little more an overt fruit note to stand out.

Taste is sour upfront for sure. As you get further through the glass the fruit/berry notes start coming out more. I won't pretend that I can pick out which fruits particularly, but its in the realm of tart cherry/raspberry. No real "funk" aspect to speak of in this beer, but again i'm not necessarily complaining. Sourness fades a touch as it warms and you adjust to the beer. A nice taste overall, even if it didn't blow me away.

Mouthfeel is great for this style. Gently carbonated and pretty easy to drink. Never too foamy or spritzy as some examples of this style end up being.

Overall this is an enjoyable beer and one i'm glad I had. It's exciting to see a NC brewery bottling a nicely made example of this style. I was a little worried this would end up being a sweeter lambic but thankfully it is not. Is it worth $20 a bottle...well yes and no. Since that seems to be the going rate for sours/wild ales in this format, I can't really fault them for the price point. Still, I would be hard pressed to justify repeat purchases of this.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark ruby red in color with very light amounts of active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and some raspberry red highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy pinkish white head that quickly reduces to an extremely thin ring around most of the edges of the glass. No lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tart raspberry and cherries with light aromas of oak and moderate aromas lactic tartness. Overall there is a light amount of sourness to the smell.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of tart cherries and tart raspberries with a light amount of oak woodiness. Overall this beer is sour with a generous amount of tartness but not so sour as to cause any puckering.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly dry and with a moderate to significant amount of acidic prickliness.

O: As the first sour that I have tried from Green Man I am impressed - not sweet at all but not overly sour/tart either. Enjoyable and easy to drink, my father-in-law who is not a beer aficionado nor a huge fan of sour things also enjoyed this beer - it went really well with brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and salmon. I definitely recommend grabbing this one when you see in NC.

A - Deep cherry red in colour with one finger of cherry-white coloured head.

S - Big sour cherry aroma with some sweet oak notes and a big oak barrel presence.

T - A nice tartness up front (not sour) with ripe sour cherries. A sweet breadiness comes through mid-palate along with toasted oak. No pucker at all in this one, just a nice, inviting tartness with a big sour cherry presence.

M - Medium body with some chew. Dry. Light carbonation.

O - Great brew, would have again if not so limited. Less than 500 bottles I think?
