3.63/5 rDev -12.3%
I don't think of Green Flash as a sour meister, but I am willing to give them a chance to show their skillz. On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:
The color and aroma are on the mark per style. Its color is like crimson with a slight orangish hue. The aroma is pleasant tart with an acidic cherry note to go with the tartness. There's is some slip-off when the beer is tasted, though as it stands is not a bad ale. It's modestly tart and doesn't overwhelm the taste sensors, not over the top nor is it the vibrant Flanders Red as some of the others.

3.93/5 rDev -5.1%
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Brownish red. Small cream-colored collar.
Smell - Acetic and oaky. Vanilla. Caramel. I don't get much bourbon directly, but the vanilla and oak play nicely with the acidity.
Taste - Moderate acetic sourness. Caramel malts. Bourbon is much more prominent here, along with a nice vanilla and malty flavor lingering in the back.
Mouthfeel - I seldom say something isn't sour enough, but I think this could use a bit more. Well carbonated.
Overall - Smells great, but the flavors are a little tame.
