Love it. Surprisingly delicious. The sour taste is slight, but enjoyable.

Not my style of beer, and an average sour in comparison.

Simply not what I like in a beer, its way to sweet with a sluggish body. The bottle with paper wrapping looks very attractive though.

It's a damn good oud bruin, accessible for someone new to sours while still holding up several years later.

From green 12.7oz bottle, pours a perfectly clear red-tinted dark brown, one finger thick creamy but fast fading pink-khaki colored head. Sheet of lace sticks for a few inches down. Smell: raspberry, sour peach note, leather, barnyard note. Sparse... fruit and not much behind it. Taste: cranberry-raspberry blend, brown sugar, herbal with woody and green apple candy notes in the finish. Light bodied with fizzy carb and a fast finish... seeing the abv online this makes sense, but makes the beer come off as underpowered. Tasty and refreshing at least. Bottled 5/2014.

On tap served in a short wine glass at fridge temps.

Appearance: reddish brown, light off white head of small bubbles, very clear

Nose: cherries, wild yeast sour smell, faint raspberries

Taste: sour funk, sour cherries, dried red fruits, lactic mouthfeel, light mouthfeel

I really enjoyed this one. I need to drink more sours. Fantastic job!

Appearance is between bordeaux-red and brown, with a white head that rapidly vanishes. Aroma of red fruits, which also reappears in the taste. This, in combination with a medium sour taste, gives the beer a winey taste. Love the beer, love the style of beer.

After visiting Russian River and loving their sours I now find myself gravitating in that direction. Seeking out sours I am even more convinced that RR does them right, having said that this is a pretty decent sour, abiet quite different but still darn tasty.
