4.08/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.

4.76/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle as the third in a Snozzberry tasting, also into a Jester King wine glass.

Appearance: Dark crimson, hints of orange. Very hazy. A pale pale pinkish-white crown around the edge. No real head though.

Smell: Loads of raspberry and blackberry. Some vinous, Tempranillo grape notes in there too. Somewhat creamy, a slight oak presence, and a definite sourness to it. This smells delicious.

Taste: Very berry heavy, reminds me of Atrial in that sense. Lots of raspberry seeds. Mouth-puckering, the sourness really hits me in the jaw. Not sure I can separate the blackberry notes from the raspberry notes in this one though. Some funk, and a crackery malt. Oak flavors get more prominent as it sits, which is just gorgeous. This is very nice.

Mouthfeel: Lower carbonation than I expected, but that’s fine because the other beers I had tonight had enough carbonation for the whole tasting. Nice and dry.

Overall: Definitely a highlight from the Snozzberry tasting tonight. Would love to try more Green Man stuff.

Bottle shared by Oline73. Thanks Steve! Review from notes.

The beer is pink to ruby colored with a small head that fades rapidly with a hiss. Aromas of tart berries, maybe raspberry or cherry, oak, wild yeast. Similar flavor. Acetic finish with berry and brett notes. Moderate lactic presence. More sour than funky. Good stuff.
