A: Pours a stale looking flat brown ale color with very little to no carbonation visible. Tiny dusting of something reminiscing bubbles int he center of the glass and forming a stratocirrus formation in a circular manner.

S: Holy sour cardboard, I cannot tell you how much cardboard this smells like. Mushrooms and old brown ale that went sour.

T: The sourness on this is very lactic in taste at first and nearly lemon flavored. Quickly following behind the lemon cardboard is an earthiness that does reek of wet leaves and stings the tongue nearly making your mouth pucker. Behind that there is not a ton of complexity.

M: Light and airy, hardly carbonated.

O: Overall its a sour brown ale as described on the bottle. It is not a whole lot more than that however the mushroom flavors are slightly intriguing. I really have not had too many beers that capture musky mushroom essence more than this and I think this makes a good base beer but I am not sure i would drink more of them with many other options available. Being a huge fan of the Flanders Oud Bruin style, I would much rather have an Aardmonik Earthmonk any day of the week (as if it were available :) )

Sour, like vinegar and I get a taste of soy. Worth a try.

Picture an oak tree surrounded by mushrooms on a vineyard that also produces apple cider vinegar, thats what this beer tastes like.....and its delicious. I really enjoyed this one. A good sour with natural, earthy undertones.

Pours a murky super dark reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. There is a swirl of thick yeast that sticks together in a large clump in the glass after the pour. Smell is slightly sour with malt, fruit, funk, vinegar, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, dark fruit, wood, acidic, and slight vinegar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting combination of dark fruit and vinegar characteristics that work together slightly better in the smell to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Bought at Liquor Shed.

No foam in the pour, it's an opaque brownish red colour.

Big sour nose of vinegar, dark fruits, cherries. I'm diving in.

Deliciously sour with everything I've already mentioned. I yearn for another sip.

Despite the lack of foam, there's a nice level of carbonation.

Simply excellent!
