2.9/5  rDev -26.2%

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance- Hazy orange. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Oak. Kinda funky. Intense acetic acid aroma. Orange citrus.

Taste - Really intensely sour. Acetic. Woody. Orange citrus. And then more sour. It takes over.

Mouthfeel - Overly sour. Medium carbonation and medium body.

Overall - A struggle to get through.

On-tap at Stone Sour Fest

The pour is an orange color without much in the way of a head. From what I can find on this, it’s supposed to be a pomegranate and cherry beer, but I get peach, peach, and more peach. A light oakiness, a touch of citrus peel, and a nice lactic tarntess. The flavor is slightly sweet with some malt and oak notes, maybe a hint of vanilla. The peach character is very pronounced with a few other fruit notes to it as well.

From a bottle.

Appearance – Pours a light clear golden color with a very nice head and solid lacing.

Smell – A nice sour brett scent, with some dark fruitiness (maybe pomegranate) and oak.

Taste – Follows the nose - a nice sour bretty taste, with dark fruitiness. Maybe a hint of white wine.

Mouthfeel – Nice carbonation, with a sour bite. Though sours aren’t my favorite style, this is well done.

Drinkability – This beer surprised me. I suspect its score will go up if it gets more reviews (currently only 3.90 with 3 reviews).

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Look: Pours a golden orange, like a desert sunset.

Smell: Funky, floral and somewhat similar to an old cologne that's been aged in a cedar box.

Taste: Like that one hidden sour-berry from across the universe somewhere on a tiny, jungle-ridden planet. The one that you only taste in a tropical dream.

Mouthfeel: Pleasantly enticing as it tickles your tongue.

Overall: This quickly became one of my top 3 favorite sours.
