A very decent sour, nice for an American brewery. It is well balanced with flavors of red wine vinegar and blueberries. Also has a nice underlying malty sweetness. My only complaint would be that it's a bit watery on the finish. If there was a category for price point, this would get a 5 in it. Definitely try.

I can't remember the last time I had anew Holland beer that I cared for or enough to ever want to buy again, lets see if they can change that with a stab of one of my favorite styles....
A: pours a silky looking clear amberish red/brown with a half inch light khaki head, has a good looking carbonation with a medium number of average sized bubbles
S:Smells like a good sour but not super sour smelling, hope its more sour that it smells, no hops aroma or maltyness to speak of some slight nuttiness perhaps from the oak.
T: wow! this is amazing, starts of mediumly sour, but after getting half way through the glass it gets more and more intense!! there is a good subtle nuttiness in the aftertaste as well
M: medium carbonation with a slightly silky mid palate and a bit of a dry aftertaste.
O.a: I would definitely buy this again, price point is great too!
