4.13/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: poured into a tulip dihos pours a dark copper with a red hue quite a bit of head that dissipates pretty quick leaving nice lacing.

S: funk! smells of tartness, brett, cherry and a bit medicinal.

T: quite a bit of cherry on this one, first taste very tart with a long finish.

M this one has quite a bit of carbonation, nice amount of bubbles coming up throughout the entirety, finishes pretty dry.

O: overall this is a great beer for sour fans and even if you don't like sours you should be able to enjoy this beer thoroughly. the 10.74% is masked very well.

4.14/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On tap for Churchill's Renaissance 2013 at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a hazy copper with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a sour fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some nice sour flavors that make it easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap
