Eager to try this on tap at Right Brain while on vacation here.

Appearance – Poured in a tumbler, the beer is a dark ruddy mahogany color with about a half finger of off while head that dissipates somewhat fast leaving slight lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – A lively funky tartness, green apple, slight vinegar, and cherry. As the beer warms the aromas become more dramatic and apparent.

Taste – A tart cherry flavor up front which melds to slight barnyard funk. I am not really getting any of the hops/hoppy bitterness that the reviewer below me did. This is more of a straight up sour/oud bruin. At first, the beer is somewhat one dimensional but as it warms the flavors become pronounced, just as the aroma did.

Mouthfeel – Light to medium bodied, decent carbonation.

Overall – A very quaffable and enjoyable sour. A nice stab at the style from Right Brain and I am thinking I’ll go get another glass today. A hint one dimensional and not overly complex, but solid in its own right.
