4.11/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Draft into a tulip, poured at the DoG Street Pub in Williamsburg, VA on 7 Feb 2014.

A: Deep reddish-amber color, head receded by the time I got the beer, but still a significant ring at glass edge. Some lacing.

S: Sour cherries, tart young raisins. Some malt notes are present as well. Smelled very clean.

T: Followed the nose. Tart cherries right in the front. Has an acidic tone, slightly towards vinegar. Malts follow in the middle, some toasted caramel perhaps. A little bit of woodiness, but not much. There is an earthy tone towards the end.

M: Light body and gently carbonated. Sourness makes the beer feel dry. Finishes nicely, with a bit of sweetness at the end, but not much.

O: This is a good example of a Belgian sour from a quality American craft brewer. This is an easy drinking sour, and a good starting point for someone looking to try this style.

Serving type: on-tap

4.18/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, low carbonation, gold-brown in color, clear

Smell: sharp sour mix and fruit candy

Taste: light oak, sharp sour mix, touch of dark fruits--blueberry and cherry

Mouthfeel: super sour with a touch of sweetness, light in body, prickly medium carbonation

Overall: One of the better New Holland beers that I have had. Super complex. This one is a sipper and the fruit comes out towards the end as it warms. I would get this again if I found it on tap.
