On tap at LA Beer Week in Union Station. Tucked in a far away corner of the event sits lonely Sam Adams. Why venture over there, I ponder. Boy, am I glad I did. Went back 3x during the event and received a good 4 oz pour each time. Murky, hazy reddish brown and essentially still in the taster glass. Nose is really complex with a woody oak, stone/earth, fruit, funk mixture. Taste is sharply biting but not too tart. Oh, this is something special. Is that a hint of brandy? Picking up some sour and sweet cherries. A mother funk of wild yeast for sure! Wow, can't get over this one. Taste is simply everything mixed in a big jumble and smooth as silk. Mouthfeel is big and moderately tart with a tannic bite on the finish. Overall, the only selection which received a repeat visit that day. Tip of the hat, Jim.

Had this on tap at the American Craft beer festival. Served in a tasting glass.

A dirty brown body and an off-white head

S very distinctive cherry smell in the front

T sour, lemon, grain aftertaste is there as well

M medium

D not bad offering from Sam's. Unusual for them because it certainly pushing the envelope. I would drink this again.

Poured from the tap into a tasting glass.

The color is a dark drown/bronze with a finger of foamy off-white head and some lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a bit sour cherry and has a twangy bit of funk in it.

The taste is a bit fruity with more sour cherries and some tart lemon-like flavor. Some bready malt flavor does come out a bit to smooth this out a bit toward the end.

The feel of this beer is light at first with some bubbles making it feel well carbonated but is has a smooth feel that it seems to go too quickly.
