Not sure what made the previous reviewer so upset... I can't speak for the price of this beer in bottles, but a 6 oz pour at Capone's during Philly Beer Week was a reasonable $6.75... this is a sour aged for over a year, not a pale ale... and I'm the first one to speak up if I'm being overcharged for a beer.
Anyway, onto the beer: It's a gorgeous red leather with a light brown head - more carbonation than one is accustomed to with a sour aged for this length of time. Smells nice and tart; a lactic quality blended with tart cranberry, balsamic vinegar, and oak way in the back. The taste, and more importantly, the mouthfeel, are out of this world. The taste begins with a slight sourness, peaking with a lovely sour dark fruit flavor that rivals any sour I've ever had in the middle of the taste, concluding with the smoothest finish I've ever had from a sour beer (by a long shot). I never thought I'd say this about a sour of any kind, but the time spent in the barrel really smoothed this one out the way aging a very strong imperial stout smooths a very strong imperial stout out. The finish is clean, creamy, and cleanses the palate between sips impressively. I only wish I had more!
