    [Best served in a Tulip glass]

    Poured a clear dark brown with an average sized light brown fizzy head that was gone before I took the first sip and had virtually no lacing to speak of. The aroma was kind of sweet with roasted cookie malts and a sweet yeast with notes of brown sugar, some dark dried fruit and a hint of sour apples. It tasted very lightly sweet and malty with a nice dried fruit note at first then WOW did it get sour real quick with a strong does of sour apple at the end. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and very dry in texture with a very lively carbonation. Overall as sour beers go this one is right up there. Very sour and very tasty. If you like sour beers this one is definitely worth a try...

    Not what i expected. A full bodied beer with a delectable earth aroma but packs a hidden sour punch. A lips of faith addition i'd love to see on the shelf all year round.

    At first sip I wasn't sure what to expect. It is dark and has very full and woody flavor. It is also very tart. I think that although it is very extreme ( not something you drink fast) it deserves a try, especially by connoiseurs
