11.3 ounce capped bottle, aggressive pour into an Allagash Tulip glass

A: Huge frothy head. Golden yellow body. Impressed with the head!

S: Tart apples, sharp vinegar, a bit of booze, and some pears to close.

T: Tart sour apples is the dominate flavor here, very dry, some oak, not incredibly complex, yet utterly quenching and tasty. Not boring, balanced, tart, sour, slight lactic puckering ending. The oak is tasted at the close and lingers.

M: Excellent mouthfeel, dry, substantial, crisp, perfect really. Not too syrupy, and not too dry. Lovely, almost like a perfect white wine feels in the mouth.

O: This is my go to affordable sour beer. It is simple, yet soul satisfying. When I am in the mood for a sour, this always does the trick. The mouthfeel pushes this beer into fantastic treat territory. Also, I love that this beer is over 7% APV! It drinks like a much lighter sour.

Note: This beer is even better in the 750 corked and caged format I find. The dryness, sourness, and lactic close tend to be much stronger in that format. Or...on tap if you ever see it, it can be super biting when fresh on tap!

Evan's pick from Premier Gourmet in Bufflo NY
Bottle into Founders snifter.

A- Slightly hazy yellow pour. Finger width white head that quickly deflates leaving a thin cap. Lacing is surprisingly nice.

S- Lemon and grape skins. Slight grass with a bit of tart and funk.

T- Starts off with a bit of funk and than smooths out a bit from the oak. Than a tart kick in the tongue with grape and lemon juice.

M- Prickly carbonation with mouth watering tartness.

O- I think Evan made a great choice. Hefty pricetag though at $4.97 a bottle.
