look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

1 PINT 9.4 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a teku glass
2012

A - It is a rosy orange color. It is crystal clear and topped with less than an inch of tan head.

S - The smell is tart, ripe strawberries. I can pick out the raspberries as well.

T - My first taste was tart with the strawberries and raspberries coming though. It had a soapy finish. After about a third of a glass I find the sourness coating my palate. The flavor is more like sour cherries at this point. It is puckeringly sour.

M - Moderate and slick. It is wine-like.

O - I have never been overly impressed with Arbor Brewing. I had heard that the sours were good. That is why I purchased this beer a couple years ago. I am very happy with my investment. The price was around $16. It is worth it every once in a while. There are not too many sours to choose from in my area, so it is nice to have a good option within a couple hours.

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

Appearance: brownish orange color. murky and completely opaque. small off white head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind.

Smell: fruit. berries, green apple. wooden character. vinegar. just a little bit of sourness. comes off too vinegary for me

Taste: opens up with a slightly sour mix of raspberries and green apple skins. very slight barrel character and earthy character. lots of acid vinegar at the end. Not as nearly as sour as other beers i have had but a nice mellow sour.

Mouthfeel: fairly light. light puckering tartness. pretty sticky

Overall: this is one of the better super fruity beers i have had. but as far as a sour wild ale goes its falls a bit short. could use more funk to it or mouthpuckering sour. falls on the lower end of the arbor brewing sours but is still a good beer.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 vintage. Pours lightly hazy reddish orange color with a small dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tart raspberry, raspberry skin, strawberry, oak, clove, pepper, hay, grass, straw, funk, red wine, vinegar, light leather, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruit, yeast, and oak barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart raspberry, strawberry, oak, clove, hay, grass, straw, pepper, red wine, vinegar, funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness. Large amount of acidic sourness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart raspberry, strawberry, oak, clove, pepper, hay, straw, grass, red wine, vinegar, funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of tart fruit, oak, and yeast flavors; with a good balance of malt/acidity and minimal cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick, moderately syrupy, and very acidic mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited sour ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruit, yeast ester, and oak barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on despite sizable acidity. A very enjoyable offering.
