750ml bottle thanks to Joefc. The brew pours a clear amber with yellowish to orange hints around the edges. An off-white cap fades leaving spotty to patchy lace sticking to the glass.

The smell includes a fruity tang with lactic and acetic notes that deepen the fruited aspect. At times it seems to get mingled with a mineral sort of component which isnt terribly inviting but the fruited aspects make up for it.

The taste has like a mix of acedic sourness coupled with lactic lemony quality and sour fruits almost like current or cranberry. Overall not a bad tasting brew, it is uniquely enjoyable just slightly lacking in complexity but its cleanliness of the funk is to be noted.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall its ok but nothing earth shattering or terribly memorable going on here. Worth a try just to say you had it but at the pricepoint I would not buy again.

From notes. Served on tap in at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor.

Sobrehumano pours slightly darker than the usual pale ale. It has a golden caramel color, but there is also an amber tint in the center of the glass. A moderate white froth coats the top of the beer in the pitcher and remains on top in the glass for a few minutes as well before fading to a ring around the edge.

The aroma is fairly tart and acetic, with some berries and citrus fruit. There is a woody oak presence behind it as well.

There is just a quick fruit sweetness to the start of the flavor before it turns totally sour. Tart lemon and a bit of vinegar set the palate to how sour Sobrehumano is, allowing cherries, currants, green apples, and white grapes to dance on the tongue and add further depth. Tannic woody notes come through and add a slight astringency to the finish.

A moderate level of both lemony sour and cherry acetic acidity exists in this beer. The tartness causes gentle salivation and alerts the senses to the flavor sensations on the tongue. At the beginning of the sip the body seems to be in the middle of the spectrum, with the oak and crisp carbonation lightening the feel by the end.

This is yet another very drinkable sour from Jolly Pumpkin. It does not quite match up to Biere de Mars for me, but I would relax over a few glasses of this beer.

Serving type: on-tap
