The Stoney Brook Red was part of a three pack I bought up at the brewery last summer when I was there. The beer pours out as a really nice red color with a good amount of pinkish tan head. The smell of the beer isn't as funky as I was expecting it to be. There is some of the wild yeast aromas that come though but there are some fermented fruits and a malt aroma as well. The mouthfeel is bubbly and fairly active, It's lighter bodied than the color would make you think. The beer finishes a little dry but not really sour or overly tart like I was thinking it would. It was a pretty good beer.
