2012 bottle enjoyed in early 2013
A: Crystal clear orange pour with a finger or so of fizzy white head. The head doesn't last that long at all or lace. Bubbles race up to the top of the liquid, which basically sparkles it's so clear. 4
S: Tart and oaky with some rye shining through. A fruitiness lays underneath, but I can't peg it to anything specific. Acidic and inviting. 4
T: The taste isn't nearly as tart as I expected it would be, but wow is it balanced. The taste begins fruity and features a nice amount of rye. The acidity attacks the palate after that, but is only short lived as some oak, cherries, and lemon. The finish is clean and fruity. Really a very pleasant taste that isn't lacking, but also won't rip your tastebuds apart. 4
MF: The body is light and crisp. Carbonation tingles the mouth. Phenomenally drinkable, this beer really keeps you coming back for more. 4.5
O: This was a great beer. It doesn't blow away any of the other beers the Bruery puts out in this category, but that doesn't make it top notch. Really glad I grabbed this one, you should too! 4

1 pt 9. 4 fl oz bottle from Brawley's poured into an bulbous wine glass.
A - Pours a cloudy red with brown highlights. An effervescence and rapidly disappearing head.
S - Sour cherries, bread, pear, cider, vinegar.
T - Interesting first swig. Caused a mouth watering event, fairly quickly. After a few tastes, the sourness and tastes from the nose are there, but it is mixed with buttery oak and bourbon notes on the finish. You also get hints of farm funk and yeast components as it warms.
M - Average level of carbonation. The mid-swig crispness is balanced by smooth buttery finish.
O - Definitely one of the better, if not the best, sours I have tried so far. Tried it on a recommendation from Brawley's. Pricey, but worth it.
