Had to get back to commenting on this next one from Jeff:
It is a blended sour and here are my impressions:
A wonderful Sweetish-sour aroma at the cap removal, poured into a dark, ruby-garnet-noted, deep mahogany color; The next whiff overwhelms the nose with bursts of deep fig and raisin, as the head dissipates to a light brown tight bead fading to the edge of the glass.
First sip brings a strong, bright sour note with the lightest of funky Brett-like overtones; lactic bite lingers with a touch of creaminess in the corner of the mouth as an aftertaste. Very late palate leaves a mouth coating of tartness – and the slightest hint of oxidation (but not unexpectedly nor out of place).
This is a complex, dark sour that is labeled as blended – indeed the level of complexity in the aroma and flavor bear witness that it could not be matched by a single batch sour ale.
Another well done example from the Tampa braumeister. I clearly got the best end of this deal.....
