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.

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.
