Totally delicious. Sour but not too harsh, nice tart cherry flavor with some green apple and other stone fruits in the background. A bit astringent on the nose like nail-polish remover, but otherwise, a very tasty sour.

Had on Thanksgiving day while the turkey was roasting. The beer is a dark auburn color with a beautiful off white foam. The scent is tart, with a little barnyard and wet hay underneath. There is also a touch of malt. In taste, it is a very dry and moderately sour beer, with complexity....apples, cherries, wood, and candy. Tart finish. Excellent.

11.2 oz. bottled poured into tulip
(4/21/15 born on date ... consumed 11/22/15)

L: dark red-brown ... clear ... almost a 1-inch head of beige foam that doesn't stick but keeps a super-thick collar, really something to see with a little skin; no lacing

S: vinegar apples ... plenty of tartness/sourness with plenty of sweetness, great mix, and sweet/sour apples nails it for me; also some toasted cranberries, but with a pinch of sour thrown in; has a slight musty barn thing to it, and finger-nail polish/remover

T: follows the nose pretty well ... very tart apples, sweetens as it warms and also allows a nice lingering sweetness to help balance a pretty tart bite up front ... tart cranberries, raspberries; a hint of the musty farmhouse/wild ale flavor but only a hint -- the sour flavor here is a bit sweeter and cleaner; a big earthy bitter bite shows up at times and gives it what I think of as an American wild ale flair (though maybe this is an original note of the style?)

F: perfect ... big Belgianesque carbonation in a lightweight brew ... so easy to drink

O: it's everything I'm learning to love about this style, a great mix of very tart flavors with a lot of sweet flavors ... apples, cranberries, raspberries mostly come to mind, and the best part is neither the tart nor the sweet fly out of balance for very long. I will buy this beer again.
