From 02/27/14 notes. Had on tap at Beer Authority in NYC after their BR event. 14 oz. pour in a stange type glass.

a - Pours a deep reddish color with one inch of off white head and high carbonation evident.

s - Smells sour dark fruits, vinegar, raspberries, sour cherries, oak, light funk, citrus, and earthy notes. Light floral hops. Awesome smell, smells very sour and lots of dark fruits.

t - Tastes of sweet and sour cherries and other dark fruits, citrus hops, oak, light vinegar, earthy notes, grapefruit, fruity malts. Taste is good but less sour than the nose; little bit sweeter.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Lightly acedic but not too much.

o - Overall a really nice wild ale from BR. Not the sourest taste is the world but that is fine, it smells great and tastes very good. Worth checking out.

On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with fruity and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that tastes better than it smells in my opinion.
