4.34/5 rDev -0.5%
Dark rusty orange with a dense and persistent beige head. Great retention.
Smells like sour green apples. A little funky with oak. Brown sugar.
A solid balance of sweet and sour. Slightly acidic. Green apples and sour cherries. Apple cider. Brown sugar.
Mouthfeel is medium body, moderate carbonation. Slightly puckering.
I love the sweet/sour play, like a sour patch kid. Both came strong without being overwhelming.

4.55/5 rDev +4.4%
Dark, ruddy reddish pour with minimal head. It pours almost still with what ends up being a thin white rim around the glass of a head. Some mild swirls of stray bubbles at the surface of the beer. Strong sour component to the aroma. Wet wood, cherries, citrus, and tart funk. Some mild yogurt and vanilla. Flavor is tart and funky, like sour ales should be. Lot’s of Vanilla, oak, mild smoke. Notes of tart cherries, sweaty funk, blackberries. As well as some dark fruit. Finishes tart with a rush of bourbon. Slick mouthfeel. Wonderful, wonderful beer.
