16oz to a snifter

Pours a clear dark gold with a finger of head that dissipated pretty quickly. Moderate carbonation stemming from the sides of the glass, good full and sticky lacing

Smells of oak, vinegar, earthy tart cherry, spicy belgian funk, leather, and a hint of alcohol. Not very face twisting, mild on the sour side

Taste is quite a bit better than the nose. Upfront sour cherry and apple, oak, vinegar, leather, with a touch of alcohol. Big improvement over the aroma. Large notes of orange and tangerine as it warms

Feel is face twisting sour with a dry finish. Alcohol concealed well, very drinkable

Overall a really good beer, pick it up if you see it

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy peach with a half inch of head. No lace.

Lemon, oak, pale malts, earth and floral hops make up the smell.

Heavy sour lemon punch right up front, floral hops and slightly sweet malts follow, hint of wheat at the finish. Very smooth but tart.

Tastes like a double Berliner Weiss plus something. I'm a fan. Will try to score a few to cellar.

Bottle consumed at the source itself, 500 ml of it.

Light amber colored on the pour and closer to copper as it's in the glass. Its head drops quick, but it didn't have much of one in the first place. The aroma is strange. It has some sourness to it, the orange peel I appreciate, the cleaner aspect I could live without.

Sour ale? I'm going to be in a sour mood after a bottle. Greyhound must be a code word for orange, because there is a lot of it tasted in this beer. Orange on orange. Candied orange. Too much orange. A vague trickle of sourness. There's also a kiss of spice and citric bitterness in the aftertaste. I've had worse ales which were trying to be sour, though this remains a strange one.

Like McKayla, I was not impressed by Greyhound. Unbalanced and not wildly interesting.
