3.61/5 rDev -9.8%
Appearance a copper brown with a reddish hue. Poured with a quarter inch head that quickly dissipated.
Aromas of brown sugar and tart fruit with slight hints of vanilla.
Tastes true to its style - sweetness is quickly cut by the lactic sourness.
Mouthfeel - medium body and well coating. Good carbonation and a medium length finish.
Overall a solid beer and one that is great to see from evolution. For the price not sure I would do again.

Poured into tulip; this is my first beer of this style, and my first sour in general.
Pours earthy brown, slight reddish hues. Translucent and hazy, with no head at all, hard as I tried. Smells of sharp alcohol and tannin mixed with vanilla and oak, as well as some sweet/tart cherry. Overall, sort of like a sweet worcestershire sauce in a way. Taste is sweet and fruity at first, but moving quickly into sour cherry and a bite of tannins. The oak smooths everything over, and vanilla tinges the whole flavor. Reminds me of a dry red wine. The only thing missing from this one (even to my untrained-in-sours palate) is more carbonation; this poured, and tasted, utterly flat. Some lively carbonation, even a small amount, would really make this brew awesome.
Overall, this style is something entirely new to me, but after my first one, I'm hungry for more. It's rauchbiers all over again...
