3.1/5 rDev -3.7%
Pours a murky, rusty amber color with a wisp of a head and little lacing. A film does sit on top for a while. Aroma light with vinegar, stone fruit, cherry pie, and damp rotting wood. Tastes much of the same but in a less "bad" way than the smell. Body and palate was pretty good, smooth silky and nicely LOW carbonated. Overall, not a great example of the style as there was not enough funk in some areas, too sweet in others and a bit of a mess in yet some more. I will say this though, it may be a decent introductory to someone who has never tried the style as it is mild with many of the different flavors that are usually found in the style.

A- pours a murky russet mahogany color with a short lived finger of tan head.
S- aromas of over ripe cherry, cherry pit and caramel. The middle is damp wood and musty character in the middle. Some light balsamic vinaigrette and tart acidity on the finish.
T- starts out with a mild acidic tartness that falls of rather quickly. The sweetness comes out with notes of caramel, over ripe black cherries and cherry pit. Musty eathy character comes out as well. Weak finish that gives subtle caramel flavors.
MF- slick syrupy mouthfeel with a medium body and soft carbonation. Wish the carb was up a bit.
D- decent drinkability

A: The beer is very dark red in color. It poured with a thin head that quickly faded away, leaving only a ring of medium-sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of balsamic vinegar in the nose—if you were blindfolded you might mistake this for salad dressing.
T: Unlike the smell, no vinegar flavors are present in the taste, which has flavors of oak barrels, a light to moderate amount of sourness and some hints of sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied and smooth on the palate with a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and would probably pair well with an Insalata Caprese.

$16 for a 16.9 oz bottle into a generic tulip glass
A - dark chestnut brown, minimal carbination, no head, no lacing
S - even before the pour the vinegar smell is present but not
overwhelming. Otherwise unremarkable.
T - very mellow for a sour. Once the initial sourness subsides its very stout like.
M - Flat
If you love sours steer clear of this it's not worth the price.

2.9/5 rDev -9.9%
Bottle poured into a tulip.
A - Dark brown/mahogany color with a quickly receding head. Some dark reds and cloudiness. Leaves almost nothing but this almost opaque/cloudy beer in the glass.
S - Very tart, almost acidic. Some fruit and vinegar. Possibly some sugary malts as well. A few different smells in there, but mostly overtaken by that tart/acid smell.
T - Decent sour flavor, but not over the top. Problem is that this is Super sweet in the finish. Lots of caramel malt and brown sugar.
M - Lighter body, very low carbonation. Somewhat dry, but it's a sour so....
O - Just OK. Somewhat of a balance problem. Sour start, but then super sweet finish. Price is just way too high.
