Disappointed that Big Tiddy Assassin was a one time thing. While the name and label aren't all that appealing, it was a wonderful brew. If you don't like sours, this wouldn't have been for you... but i'm glad I got to try it before it went away.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange body. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Acetic acid. Caramel maltiness, not a very deep malty aroma, though.

Taste - Sour up front. Acetic and equally malty. Kinda fruity in the middle. The malt drops off as a vinegary sourness builds.

Mouthfeel - Medium body and well carbonated.

Overall - Hits all the necessary points for a Flanders and drinks pretty well.

4.3/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - The beer was a golden orange color with visible carbonation.

Smell - The aroma combines sour notes with some fruity notes. It pretty much nails the aroma for the style.

Taste - In the initial taste, it is apparent that this is a sour. Among the sensations notes are cherry skin, vinegar, oak, grape, and a certain champagne-like quality. The oak makes the aftertaste dry, but there is a certain sweetness to it as well.

Mouthfeel - The oak makes this one stick to the tongue and the insides of the mouth. The pucker-factor is present.

Overall - Three Floyds made a great version of the style. When FFF targets the sour end of the spectrum, it has not always worked out well. They truly have a winner here.

Slightly hazy bronze color with a large fluffy white head. Really good retention.

Smells of apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, and cherries.

Taste is a nice balance of sweet and tart. Acidic and fruity.

Medium heft, slightly puckering mouthfeel. Finishes sweet.

A solid flemish/sour. There's not a lot of depth, but is still put together very well with a nice balance.
