3.73/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Split a Batch #2 375'er of this at a small little palate buster during the Dirty South tasting sessions in Charlotte with that Craytonic guy. Thanks Matt!

A. Dark and dingy red rust. Small reddish tan head. No lace.

S. Here we go... sharp white oak, sweet and very red wine-cherry-shiraz-tannic... every smell sort of flows into the next, or maybe I'm getting drunk. Tangerine, sour-funk. Nice.

T. Quite sour and red wine vine-y, loads of white oak for dryness, tartness and lactic acid abound. Unfortunately there is a lemony acidic note that burns your throat in that way I really dislike in sours. It should be sour, not acidic... but I digress. Not really an Oud Bruin, either, this lacks any real malt heft and the sour is out of control. Might have started out as one though, who knows. It is what is is and there is enough actual flavor to like here. Fairly complex, but not mind blowing.

M / D. Dry and woody sour finish, that damm acidic sharpness lingers and takes this down a notch. Light carbonation and body.

Rosso E Marrone is a rough US sour, not one of the greats, but worth a try if you can get it. Captain Lawrence is hit or miss on their sours for me, but for people who like theirs acidic and bold, this is recommended.

3.69/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle pour at the post-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but slightly one dimension in its sourness.
