Of all the beer Brad released this weekend, I was most interested in this. Sour brown (6ABV), aged in secondary with local sour green plums. I didn't even know green plums existed. Poured into a clear taster glass:

A: Pours a nice cloudy brown. Compared to the others sours I got, this head lasted longer and was most impressive. Rusty brown with some gold hues.

S: Very nice. Surprisingly the sour fruit characters come through. Some grapefruit, green grapes, and plums. The acetone is kept in check. Nice lactic acidity, with slight Brett funk.

T: This is a very well integrated sour. The tart fruit flavors complement the yeast perfectly. Really enjoy the tart green fruits coming out.

Overall, a job well done by Brad and the crew. Glad I have a bottle of this to share.

Thanks Bad for this sneak peak.
Pours a nice orangish brown, a touch of head. Looks decent. Smells.... Unusual. Ive never had green plums before so im not sure if thats what I'm smelling. Not bad at all but odd. Tastes tart, sweet, funky. Lots going on. The plum is lovely. The more i drink the more i like it. Good mouthfeel. Very solid. Especially love the subtle vanilla :)

Poured into a tulip. 2011 vintage, Bottle #93 of 204.

3.5 A: Super dark brown, nearly black color. Two fingers of creamy/frothy beighe head. Retention is about average and a small ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: This JO's character comes out big time in this. Anyone who's had a few of their sours knows what I'm talking about. As for this one, it isn't very sour in the nose, but there is a lot of funk in the way of barn, horse, hay, wild apple, and apple orchard. I'm pretty sure I've identified what the green plum contributes and it isn't similar at all to the plums I'm used to. Oaky woodiness abounds. Complex and quite nice, but I wish it was a bit stronger.

4.5 T: Despite the nose, the taste offers a solid sour punch. Green plum adds plenty of tartness to the mix in addition to an "unripened vinousness." Again, lots of the JO's character. Big oaky woodiness, light vanilla, and light tannic astringency. Lots of apple, apple orchard, and horse funk. Hay, unripened peach, and pear to a lesser extent. Plenty of lactic acid overall without much acetic.

4.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This is good, but I'd prefer the carbonation to be a bit spritzier and the body to be creamier.

4.5 D: I'm a huge fan of JO's sours and this offers everything that I want in one. Complexity stemming from interesting ingredients, pucker without excessive pucker, and easy to drink.
