750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Color is an apple red with some noticable carbonation and solid head. Smell is actually pretty non existant which I was very suprised by really nothing noticeable. Taste is nice good balance of fruit and sour. Mouthfeel is clean finishes crisp with a slight tart aftertaste which I want with this style. Overall decent beer but certainly not spectacular.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a very dark chocolately brown. The edges reveal a more complex color: hues of maroon/dark red really give this beer a more complex complexion than one would expect from a sour. Little to no head is evident, although the beer does demonstrate good lacing throughout. Overall, for a sour beer, this is a very attractive brew. Dark and seductive.

S: A powerful and vivid nose opens up upon inspection. Tropical fruits dominate with a mild earthiness in the background giving away its Brett character. It's a fruity and floral nose that really leads you to believe this sour is more on the fruity than funky side of the spectrum.

T & M: Sour with a very pronounced malt backbone. It's much maltier than alot of sour beers, which I usually prefer. However, there's something about the malt character that doesn't really complement the sour character of the beer. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think it's the tropical fruit of the malt character conflicting with the funky sourness.

O: On paper, this beer should be a winner. However, it falls short of the best sour beers on the market. If you like sour beers, I recommend trying this beer. However, I don't think it's worthy of more than one try. This is one of those beer where the sum is not greater than the parts.

20 anny blend.

A firm pour produces a nice fizzy head but with most fizzy heads it falls rather quick. The color is a deep dark amber so we're about right for the "sour brown ale" that the brewer claims.

A very acidic nose with some cherries and perhaps some brown sugar.

Very acidic but in a more makes your stomach burn vs puckering sour. A lot of tart cherry impact here as well.

A reasonably easy to drink sour, nothing too big, or too fizzy. Still the level of acidity here is a bit too high. It makes it hard to drink.

I've gotta give a big thumbs down for this one. It lacks complexity and just hits you over the head with acid. There just isn't anything going on in here to make this beer something beyond an excuse to drink something sour....which I guess isn't that bad.

Thanks to womencantsail for sharing this one at GRG1313’s tasting.

19th Anniversary vintage. Bottled 3/20/12.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, berry, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with berry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer but fairly boring for the style.
