Served in a tumbler at the brewpub.

Moving into the sour portion of today's proceedings, starting with something simply described as a "sour ale". (It seemed like a FOB to me...) It pours a cloudy garnet-russet topped by a finger of off-khaki foam. The nose comprises tart cherry, red wine (I'm thinking a drier-than-usual Temperanillo), caramel, light toasted oak, and a hint of maple syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, though now there's less tartness in general, the cherries now taste black, there's more oak, and there's a tiny touch of what seems like plastic way in the back. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slick-ish feel, and a dry-ish finish. Overall, a nice little beer, but I feel its essential character becomes lost the more you drink it. Something like that, anyway...
