A- Pink honey. Big bubble head that runs away as fast as it can. Hmmmm curious
S- Smell the pucker. Sour cherry as it suggests
T- Pucker before anything. Pretty sour. Taste is good but seems to be lacking depth (I guess it is only 5.4% though)
M- LOTS of bubbles. Definite drool factor
O- It's good. Was hoping for something a bit heavier in the mouth, but not at all disappointed.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Color is an apple red with some noticable carbonation and solid head. Smell is actually pretty non existant which I was very suprised by really nothing noticeable. Taste is nice good balance of fruit and sour. Mouthfeel is clean finishes crisp with a slight tart aftertaste which I want with this style. Overall decent beer but certainly not spectacular.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a very dark chocolately brown. The edges reveal a more complex color: hues of maroon/dark red really give this beer a more complex complexion than one would expect from a sour. Little to no head is evident, although the beer does demonstrate good lacing throughout. Overall, for a sour beer, this is a very attractive brew. Dark and seductive.

S: A powerful and vivid nose opens up upon inspection. Tropical fruits dominate with a mild earthiness in the background giving away its Brett character. It's a fruity and floral nose that really leads you to believe this sour is more on the fruity than funky side of the spectrum.

T & M: Sour with a very pronounced malt backbone. It's much maltier than alot of sour beers, which I usually prefer. However, there's something about the malt character that doesn't really complement the sour character of the beer. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think it's the tropical fruit of the malt character conflicting with the funky sourness.

O: On paper, this beer should be a winner. However, it falls short of the best sour beers on the market. If you like sour beers, I recommend trying this beer. However, I don't think it's worthy of more than one try. This is one of those beer where the sum is not greater than the parts.

20 anny blend.

A firm pour produces a nice fizzy head but with most fizzy heads it falls rather quick. The color is a deep dark amber so we're about right for the "sour brown ale" that the brewer claims.

A very acidic nose with some cherries and perhaps some brown sugar.

Very acidic but in a more makes your stomach burn vs puckering sour. A lot of tart cherry impact here as well.

A reasonably easy to drink sour, nothing too big, or too fizzy. Still the level of acidity here is a bit too high. It makes it hard to drink.

I've gotta give a big thumbs down for this one. It lacks complexity and just hits you over the head with acid. There just isn't anything going on in here to make this beer something beyond an excuse to drink something sour....which I guess isn't that bad.
