look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: deep dark reddish brown

Aroma: sour funky aroma, but in a good way.

Taste: starts sweet and then fades to the sour funk. got a hint of cotton candy or maybe cherry cola.

Mouthfeel: thick body, light carbonation

Wow what a damn good beer. I was told they aged this beer in Maderia wine barrels. Wish they bottled this so you could get a few more years on it.

Cheers

Had this a while back at CBC in Cambridge Mass on St. Patrick's Day. A very nice choice.

A: Very dark dark brown to black color with brown highlights. Nice tan pinky of head with some lacing.

S: Great aroma featuring cherry, vanilla/oak, lactic acid, brett, farmhouse straw notes, and also a round malt I can only describe as a kind of 'sweet and sour.' Very nice! It jumps out from the glass.

T: Awesome Sour cherry to savory oak balance with some citrus like sour twists in the back. Balsamic Vinaigrette comes to mind here, perhaps red wine balsamic as I certainly get a deep dark fruit flavor. Some cookie like sweet dessert notes too. Excellent.

M: Again, wine comes to mind with a vinous feel, though with just enough carbonation. Great.

O: Overall I was shocked how nice this was, certainly a treat and I'm glad I came in here to try this beer on St. Patrick's Day in Beantown.

On tap at CBC on 3/12/11 and served in a flute. This brew appears a very hazed dark brown color with some lighter brown coloration and clarity through the edges. A thin tan cap dissolves quickly and hangs close with a formation of bubbles around the wall of the glass.

The smell of this brew is quite tangy with mellow tones of woodsy smoothness. A vanilla scent creeps in with a sweet smell that is quite enjoyable. More sniffs of this brew reveal a spiced aspect and more sweetness somewhat like brown sugar. Wow, the smell of this brew is an absolute contradiction of what the taste reveals.

The taste of this brew is tangy, sharp, acidic and sour with a bold incorporation of alcohol. The alcohol is well incorporated and not distracting but it's evaporative quality only sharpens the perceived acidity and sourness of this brew. Some woodsy notes and vanilla smoothness is evident as this brew rolls across the tongue but it is quickly met with an acute sharpness of sourness and acidity. Further sips reveal malt notes that are minorly chocolate-like that get dominates by the strong tangy sourness and acidity of this brew.

This offering displays a huge salivation factor. It is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. This brew is not an easy drinker, there is a reason you are served less than 10oz. The alcohol is not hidden at all. This is a very pungent brew with seemingly no funk, just straight brutal sourness. Overall it was enjoyable but it took some effort to put down. I'm not a sourhead but I enjoy a good sour brew from time to time and on this occasion I was really in the mood for one. To quote my wife on this experience: "Are you feeling ok? I don't think I've ever seen you only drink one beer and have it last this long in your glass."

Served in a 8 oz. fluted glass at CBC.

Brown and cloudy, good head to start which quickly fades and leaves no trace. Can't be revived. The aroma screams bourbon: oak, vanilla, cherries. Very tart with a good amount of carbonation on the back end. Flavor speaks of bourbon and pineapples with a solvent like characteristics from the alcohol. Finish is dry. Light body.

on tap the sunday after EBF. served in a 9oz flute glass for $6. after trying rose de cambrinus at EBF, i was excited to try this.

A- served to me in a pretty good sized flute. a muddy brown colored body with a small cream colored head on top. little to no lacing gets left behind.

S- the first thing i get in the nose are acidic notes and a little bit of barnyard funk. not over the top, but i can tell that this is going to be sour. after that i get some sweetness from caramel and toasted bread like malts. maybe a little bit of roasted malts? sweet raisins and cherries.

T- the taste starts out with the sweet caramel and toasted bread malts i could smell. cant pick up much if any roast. then the lactic sourness hits. much more sour than earthy/musty. still not over powering. cherries and raisins. a little bit of heat from the alcohol. some vanilla from the oak.

M- medium bodied with a low level of carbonation that really works here. sour, but not too sour. nice and dry, as expected.

D- i really enjoyed this, especially for the reasonable price. these guys know how to brew a sour. id definitely drink this again if i had the chance.
