In a beer share that also included Wicked Weed Oblivion and Boulevard Love Child No.4, this brew really stood out.

The bottle we cracked was a 2012 edition poured into a teku.

I could kick myself for not taking notes, but what stood out to me on this brew was the big malt flavors and burnt cherry. The flavors were simply more pronounced than on the other two sours mentioned above. There was more body to this beer as well, and the tartness and acidity quite enjoyable.

Of a group of four for the bottle share, the consensus was that this beer was better than both Oblivion and Love Child No. 4. That both of those beers were excellent should impress on you just how tasty this brew was.
