Bottle poured into a HF stem.
Pour: Muddy maroon body with a finger of burnt white head. Recedes to a rim and leaves barely any lacing.
Smell: Tart cherries up front, followed by some pears. Some caramel malts come in next. Thats about it.
Taste: Incredibly sour cherries up front, followed by some tart pear and green apples. A pretty hefty caramel backbone supports, and goes along with a distinct vinegar acidity.
Mouthfeel: Holy sour! Hands down the most sour beer I've had yet, and too much so. Puckering. A sipper for this reason.
Overall: A nice flanders, but this is a bit too 'in your face' for me.

Pours hazy reddish brown, with thin off white head. Smell is mostly lemon and cherry. Smell is a little underwhelming for me. Taste is fantastic: very tart and crisp. Lemon / lime, green apples, oak. Not really getting the cherries that everyone else claims. Feel is astringent, tart, dry, light and crisp. Lively carbonation.
Overall, terrific. Supremely drinkable, refreshing and tons of tartness. Along with La Folie, this is one of my favorite all time Sours.

A - Pours a rich amber brown with a luxuriously creamy head. Not much lacing.
S - Cranberry, oak, lemon peel, faint vinegar and leather. Some barnyard funk.
T - WOW. Just really creamy and rich at first, then bam -- it's on -- with tart, tangy cranberries and cherry. Lemon and lime zest intermingle with brown sugar and vanilla. Sour apples bring up the rear.
M - Absurdly soft and creamy considering how puckeringly tart this beer is. Nice long finish with an endless parade if flavors unfolding.
O - Impressive on all fronts. A truly special beer.
Serving type: on-tap
