stevoj (2835) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap at Boise brewery. Definitely sour, wouldnít be surprised if they used sour cherries. Dark Ruby pour, sour winelike aroma, cherries in the taste somewhere, but mostly dominated by the yeast.

DuffMan (7845) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
On tap @ the brewery, RBSG, as "Cherry Tart". Hazy red brown, sweet brown sugar and tart cherries. Fairly sweet, and more tart than sour.

Light reddish dark amber pour with an off white head. Cherry and slight sour nose. Nice cherry sour with a complex malt finish. Pretty good.
Earlier Rating: 6/28/2014 Total Score: 3.6
Hazy brownish red pour with a slight tan head. Dark fruit, cherry and some wood in the nose. Taste is interesting, somewhat sour but certainly not a ton of sourness. Fruity and oaky. Nice.

brokensail (12916) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 25, 2015
On tap @ 10 Barrel. Amber in color with a thin khaki head. A little bit of buttery pie crust along with some cherry pie filling. Kool Aid mix, some mild vinegar, and a hint of lemon. There isnít a whole lot I like about the aroma or the flavor, unfortunately. Overly sweet tasting. Tons of cherry candy and pie filling. Mild sourness, some oak, and a bit of grass. Maybe even a bit of caramel.

hayduke (3698) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
On draft at the Portland brewpub as part of the RBSG. Pours a reddish brown with an off-white head. Good lancing. Nose is cherry funk. Medium minus body with a tart mouthfeel. Almost like cough syrup. Flavor is sour cherry and funk is there first sip to the last. This is decent and drinkable, but a small amount is plenty.

Sledutah (6013) - Utah, USA - JUN 21, 2015

Cloudy dark amber with a small beige head, some lacing. Aroma of dark Cherries. Flavors of dark cherries and tart
Ok

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at 10 Barrel, pours a cloudy dark reddish brown with tart cherries and Belgian yeast. Flavour is very tart, with sour cherries, some medicinal cough syrup notes, and Belgian yeast. Not overly pleasant, with the tart syrupy medicinal notes, but not a disaster. Okay.

djd07 (5897) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy brown with small white head. The aroma is cherry skin, funk, wood. Thin mouth, light tartness, black cherry, bready malt, crushable, very good.

Homer321 (2633) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Nose if fruit flesh, plum like, grapy with a touch of mustiness and wood. Some vanilla as it warms, Pour is dark red with a small off white head. Taste is a bit aggressive in sourness at first with a weird roasted malt bitterness and coffee flavor. As I drink it, the slight coffee flavor keeps detracting me from an otherwise, very pleasant sour. I thought initially it was too sour, but that is not the case at all, it is a touch too astringent and tannin. overall, ok, but seems to lack a malt backbone to support the sourness.

Alphadelic (1908) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2014
So Iíve held onto this one for a few months while we were waiting for the wee man to be born and unhappily I donít believe it has stood the test of time. Sure it has true Flanders hints to it but it is over-carbonated beyond pleasurable drinking. My other half likes it but itís not for me, it lacks the brightness I enjoy in a good sour. A little metallic and oxidized.
