3.3/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle corked and caped poured into a pint glass. Bottled on 03/01/13

A: Opaque orange-brown color upon pour with a tan head that went away quickly. After warming up the color was more of a clear red-amber.

S: Very subtile smell I could only pick up strong sourness and traces of chocolate and bread.

T Very sour grape taste and tart, but in a pleasant way. Stronger chocolate taste then the smell let on, but still very faint. I could also pick up on some darker ripe fruit flavors once this beer warmed up. I wouldn't say that this beer had a strong alcohol presence but you could definitely tell the alcohol was present.

F: Very tart it reminded me of a warhead candy. I found it to be the perfect amount of carbonation and body for the sour taste of the beer. I could still feel the sour on my teeth for quite some time after my last sip. There was also some alcohol warmth which I don't mind. This was a very easy beer to drink.

O: This is the first "sour" I've had and I was very pleased with it. I got this on sale for $6 and while I'm glad I tried it I probably wouldn't buy it again, but would drink again if it was offered to me. The price is fair its just not my preferred style. I would recommend this for someone looking to try something different thats out of their comfort zone. I would have liked to try this closer to its bottle date, perhaps some of the flavors would have been stronger. However if you can still find this one I recommend picking a bottle up.

3.66/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Scarlet brown beer with nice clarity. Touch of haziness. The inch and a half of head I mustered cropped back to a thin cap pretty quickly. Looks like an Oud Bruin.

Aroma seems fairly English, but with a lightly tart twist. Toasted grain, oxidized apple maltiness, toffee, light cherry, and sone distant acetic notes. Hard to say if I'd have guessed this was a sour by the nose.

Now, a lack of that aromatic sweetness. Sourness is here, yet still relaxed with some woody notes and briny acetic acidity. A little funked up, but no boasting umami mustiness. Apple is tart and green now, cherry is nearly absent; fruity elements from the nose have convoluted. Notes of wet straw and lemon pith are bright. Still toasty and offering some toffee tones. Light sour chocolate flavors. Not bad.

Medium-thin with some alkaline greasiness. Carbonation is entertaining me enough. Tartness isn't nearly as smacking. Want more.

Not sure exactly what I was expecting, but it was a little better than what this is. It's not bad, just doesn't have enough flair to convince me to drink American-style Sour Browns.
