95 Samuel Adams Stony Brook Red, The Boston Beer Co. (MA). 9% ABV (5/11)
Copper red color. A captivating array of sweet and sour aromas suggest dried apples and cherries, honey and grassy herbs. Round and crisp with a tangy full body and a cherry pastry and earthy hop finish. Great balance and approachability.

93 Flanders Ned Ale, Grumpy Troll Brewery (WI). 6.2% ABV (6/09) %{Brewpub}
Aromas of sour cherry jam, honeyed sourdough raisin toast and buttery praline have an appetizing yeasty edge and follow through on a round, vibrant entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with great depth and a touch of polished wood and new leather. Finishes with a hint of cocoa and hints of cherry yogurt, orange rind and pepper. A tangy, clean food friendly sour ale that is spot-on example and good introduction to the style. Pair with rabbit or roasted duck and Brussels sprouts.
