look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - The nicest deep brown I have ever laid eyes on. Deep mahogany brown with tiny carbonation bubbles slowly climbing from the bottom to the top. On top the bubbles meet the beige creamy head. The head retracts slowly until a thick lacing.

S - A prickly yeast smell along with some wine like tones.

T - A little sweet sour taste hits my tongue together with a wine like fruitiness. All decent and balanced though. Its a surprise because I didn't expect the sour. In the depths there is some oak.

M - The carbonation is medium to high and the finish is dry, sour and bitter.

O - a nice surprisingly refreshing beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle into tulip

A- Dark, dark brown. Thin tan head. No lacing
S- Slight sour - funk. Gets a little salivation
T- Mehh. A very slight sweetness on the begining, but not much flavor. Tiny bit of tart/sourness on the end
M- Smooth, but nothing intersting

O- This may be a good sour for those just dipping into sours, but I expect a lot more from my sours. Good thing I didn't pay a lot for this in the "sour power" box.

Small bottle into Duvel tulip glass.

Murky medium brown. Small-medium head.

Smell has "Flandersy" notes; sour but with a touch of brown sugar; spoiled fruit.

Taste also has some honey in the finish; also, some cherry notes.

Not as acidic as I remembered/expected, but certainly refreshing and pretty light.

A delicious, classic beer.

Brilliant brown pour with small tan head. Funky sour cherry aroma. Taste is initially sweet but soon tart and malty. Finishes dry. Soft mouthfeel. Low to medium carbonation works well with the tart taste. The carbonation does not overpower the beer or accentuate it too much. In other words. The carbonation level is just about right. Drank at The Friendly Place in San Antonio, a cool casual place with a great selection and very knowledgable staff. A pleasant experience all around.

Amber reddish hue with excellent clarity. A quarter inch of beige head rests on top. Aroma of tart Brett and horse blanket is moderately present. The flavor is somewhat restrained tart Brett and horse blanket along with amber malt. The mouth is fairly carbonated and refreshing.
