Notes from the southsound tasting.

A Pours a nice ruby color topped off with a small off white head.

S Lots of brett barnyard funk with a tart cherry note present.

T Lots of cherry with a more subdued sourness then many other sours out there. A bit of a hint of lemon zest as well to keep things interesting.

M Lots of carbonation on a light but full body which is perfect for the style.

Overall a very good wild ale that was a pleasure to drink.

Appearance: murky ruby-brown with decent head and lacing

Smell: vinegar, oak, cherry, brown sugar

Taste: Slightly earthy, oak, tart cherries with pits, vinegar, brown sugar

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy body, medium carbonation

Overall: tasty, but I feel most of the darker wilds from this brewer tend to be slightly muddled.

Pours a murky brown color with a small fizzy light tan, short lived head.

Scent of dark fruit, sweet bourbon, oak, tart cherries, and a hint of cinnamon. Nice and balanced, not overly sweet or sour.

Taste of sour cherries, dark fruit, oak, bourbon, caramel and yeast. I didn't find this beer to be particularly complex, but it was damn good.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a creamy finish.
