cream head, lotsa fingers, penny copper in color/ Smells of candi sugar- similar to that of a faro lambic. afterstench of general spice.
Taste- nice and sour. warm spices are pronounced - i.e. cinnamon. Lactic sour with piny tinge and a bit of sweet in the background. Flavor is of sour and spice- and that is all. generic sour and spice actually- not a lot to rave home about.
Generally a decent bottle. but a bit underwhelming considering the other reviews. Truthfully the bret is a little stong- moderating it out with ped. and other sour bacteria would do it wonders in terms of balance.

On tap at Winos in BG. I had this beer a while back, but just getting around to entering the review. Boring day at work.
A. Light mahogany with dark amber hues. Translucent. Poured a thick, fine bubble egg shell head that retreats to a frothy rim. Strong laces. Healthy head.
S. Traditional JP yeast. Neutral oak, light malts. Bretts.
T. Medium to light tartness. Medium roasted malts. Neutral oak. Fairly simple flavor.
O. Smooth, medium body, medium body.
O. This is a very straight-forward, lightly sour ale. I usually pass on browns, but this is not your typical brown. This is a sour, no doubt. This has session written in BIG LETTERS. I go for this every summer, but this can be enjoyed any season.
Serving type: on-tap
