Served from a 750ml bottle into an Allagash Coolship tumbler. Cellar temps.

Appearance- Dark brownish/red with quick white head that stays at the edge of the beer.

Smell- Straight peanuts and oak. Not great. No real tart characteristics or fruit, but mostly malt dominates.

Taste- Light sourness, mild cherry and oak, still some peanuts or soy sauce. Interesting flavors. Nice sour lingering aftertaste of oak though.

Mouthfeel- Nice light and bubbly with mild tartness. Tart and refreshing.

Overall- Solid effort from Grey Sail and I look forward to possibly more sours to come from them.

A - Translucent amber with some lacing.

S - Sour, peanuts, and roastiness. A very nutty smell.

T - That nutty smell definitely comes through in the taste. Tastes like a sour brown ale with lots of peanut, roasty notes, oak, tartness, and a bit of soy sauce (in a good way). Very unique.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation and a sticky finish.

This was a surprise to see on shelves. For being open for a little over a year, Grey Sail has put out quite a few good beers in a variety of styles. They're a class act and I'm happy to find another reason to support them. This is not an overwhelmingly sour beer, but it's got a unique flavor with a lot of brown ale characteristics. Really enjoyed this one.

I wanted this beer to be good and it looked fine, but that is where it ended. As a big fan of sours I was excited to see this local offering, unfortunately it smelled like an unwashed mash tun after a few days. I tried to drink it but the taste was like licking the walls of said mash tun, an unfortunate drainpour.
