11.2 oz(what happens to the .8 I wonder) bottle from CM poured into a tulip.
A - Brown, semi transparent, with black overtones. Pours with little head and a thin lace.
S -Vinegar, apple cider, lemons.
T- Yowsa. Like drinking Apple Head candies. Or Sweetarts. You also get some mild yeast and malt notes and a somewhat bready (and sour, of course) finish.
M - The mouthfeel is interesting. There is a very tart, dry, prickly finish. Heft is medium.
O - Second sour of the day (sandwiched around a Ruination), so my palate has been tested today. Also happened to my second sour (that I recall) ever, so still adjusting to this (very) different style. I enjoyed this one, similar to Monk's Flemish, but this one seemed to have more in your face tartness-wise. Silly indeed.

330 ml bottle into Belgian snifter; no bottle dating.
Pours a deep ruby-brown color with a thin light brown head that quickly settles to a durable partial coat.
Aroma: sour fruits including cherry and green apple; hints of wet wood, wet hay, and wet leather. Better aroma than this sounds, with good complexity.
Flavor: sour fruit, including cherries, grapes and green apples. Moderately sour. ,Finishes with lingering notes of tart fruits, red wine, and raisins.
Feel: Medium body and near medium carbonation; fairly smooth.
Overall: a refreshing and unchalleging sour red ale with good complexity.

On tap at Stumbling Monk, Seattle, WA. Served in mini-goblet for $6.00!
Smells like freshly brewed beer, maybe a little green.
Red to light brown in color.
Very tart and lightly fruity start, an apple cider vinegar sour starts just behind the tip of the tongue, then lingers and tingles towards the middle and roof of the mouth. It finally finishes (after what seems like minutes) with a spicy pepper bitterness. Makes it an easy drinker... you are reaching for the glass as soon as you put it down.

This pours with a hue reminiscent of a Flanders with a clean mahogany and the coursing of bubbles through its body. The head was thin yet stayed creamy as it collared.
The aroma is subdued with light balsamic character. A bit malty with some grain, maybe barley, the aroma is pleasant but not complex.
The sour is less sour in many of the same styles but the feel is full and clean. I taste a vinegar, wine, cola nut, grain and almost toasty quality.
The feel is dry, thin yet full, strangely enough, with a real ease.
This is a well conceived sour that maybe hasn't found its full maturity. Either way it's recommended for a try.

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with an inch and a half light tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit (cherries, raisins), vinegar, tart apples, caramel, and some earthiness. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also some red grapes, and bready malt noticeable too. Nice mix of sweet and tart flavors. I wouldn't call this sour, but there's enough tartness to make it interesting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit syrupy with low/moderate carbonation. I liked this, worth a try if you've never had it before. $3.99 a bottle.
