look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Worthy Burger. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep red. Small off white head. Settles quickly. Thin collar and nothing else.

Smell - Fruity acidity. Vanilla and oak. A little whiskey pushes through. Caramel malt.

Taste - Sour cherries and a little bit vinous. Caramel malt. Vanilla and oak in the back end, again with just a hint of bourbon. Woody finish.

Mouthfeel - Moderate sourness. Medium body, but it drops out in the back. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Good flavors that drop off in the back leaving you wanting something more. (553 characters)

375ml bottle shared by Dan - thanks. Bottle # 208 of 848.

A: Pours a hazy orange with just faint carbonation which is extremely thin and white at the rim and leaves only a few spots of lace.

N: Lemony citrus, tart, fruity, tannic.

T: Mild funk, citrusy acidity, oak tannins, earthy, faint dark cherries/stone fruit.

M: Light body and light carbonation. Finishes tart, funky and fruity.

O: Glad to try this. (414 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Small head that settles rim bubbles and leaves absolutely no lace. Reddish, dark amber color with a decent amount of cloudiness.

I detect a sour smell reminiscent of vinegar--not something I'd expect from a beer. Think Easter eggs.

This is a tart beer that fits into the Belgian family of sour beers. Similar to a Gueuze. The finish has a nearly lip-puckering acidity. The low carbonation enhances the strong flavors. Good aftertaste. (438 characters)
