On tap at Surly Goat.

Clear golden amber colour with a small white head. Fair lacing and head retention.

Big oak and acid aroma. Tons of coconut and vanilla with a nice acid that works. Some grape notes.

As with the aroma this is a big combo of oak and sour. Fruity esters add interest and are a nice foil for the oak which dominates. Lots of coconut and grape. Acid is plentiful but balanced.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Good.

A really solid beer. Tasty and fun. It seems a touch high on the oak but I still like it.

On tap at Neighborhood, 11/10/11.

A-Pour is a light hazy ruby, with no head or lacing.

S-Tart with light vinegar notes.

T-Puckery but not overdone, vinegar and sweet fruit.

M-Light bodied, low carbonation.

O-Very nice. Who knew Bear Republic made a sour? Not a great one, but pretty solid.
