i think this one might be part of that wild sour series too, but i had it on tap and didnt get a lot of information on it. i have decided adambier isnt something i think i love, the few examples i have had have been awfully weird and not particularly worth it or redeeming. this one isnt as dark as others i have seen, but still flavored almost entirely by the malt until the sour yeast kicks in. moderate acidity, but it seems to be all in the middle instead of the finish. the grain then comes back with a toast crust and bran muffin malty thing, thats a little sweet. like the roles of the grain and the yeast got reversed, or at least their places in the lineup. im not sure how well german malty beers lend themselves to sour stuff, my experience outside of gose and berliner is minimal, and it seems the more flavorful grains have a weird translation. some dried fruit, some brown sugar, lemon acidity, just strange and not at all cohesive, but different enough to hold my attention for a whole beer. i plan to keep experimenting with destihl stuff, they really seem to have the entire spectrum covered.

On-tap at Three Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours dark brown with a lasting creamy head. Web-like lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is sour - cherry - and wood. Very pleasant.

The taste is of sour cherry, vinuous notes, dry wood. A firm sweet medium-dark malt backbone balance it and adds smoothness. Slight pepper from the alcohol is well-integrated. Complex and delicious!

Full-bodied and smooth despite acidity and abv.

Sour, but balanced. The complex characteristics tie in well together.
I'm not sure I've ever had an "Adambier", but this meets the brewery's description very well! A wonderful, sour, but well-balanced, enjoyable brew!

Similar to Goudenband, maybe a touch more sour and sweet.
