On-tap 5/24/2015 at Doherty’s Ale House, Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color, with no head and no lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains sour cherries and grapes, wild Belgian yeast and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a big sour bite that dominates with flavors of cherries and grapes. The malt character is very thin. There isn’t much else in the beer to describe aside from the big sourness.

M: Crisp and smooth for a sour, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is very dry.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while if you want the big sourness.

On tap at Torst.

Pours a deep tawny brown, with no real bubbles to speak of.

Smells tannic, vinegary, and sharp.

Tastes of sour dark fruit essence, oak, robust, earthy flora, finishes with tobacco and tangy plum.

Feels very smooth. Almost still.

Great beer overall, a bit more sour than I'm used to, but still great, crisp and refreshing.

On tap at Tørst.

Pours a pinkish-tinged deep red. Head is off-white slightly, small bubbles that dissipate to nothing. Nice colour, otherwise meh.

Smells tart and spicy. Plenty of red vinous notes with malt vinegar, black pepper and sour cherry. In the Belgian style of sours, very intriguing and refreshing too.

Taste is tart from start to finish. More vinous notes and plenty of sour cherry. Gets dry, peppery spice midway and then crisp sour vinegar notes late on the palate. Manages to finish with a sweetness, like fruit-infused vinegar. Makes it very drinkable and pleasant overall.

A bit puckering, but smooth enough late. OK body.

Very nice sour ale. Couple of organic, almost mulchy notes on there but mostly just crisp yet complex flavour bomb.
