3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 12.7 oz bottle poured into shaker. Clear red to purple with no head or lacing. Aroma is tart cherries, cherry cough syrup, sour cherry, breadcrumb malt, and some oak. Taste is moderately sour with lactic acidity under cherry skin flavors, lightly sweet cherry juice, and if you focus there?s a little wood and leather bitterness; the medicinal flavor is prominent, which I find unfortunate. Light to medium body, sticky texture, low carbonation, and a lip-puckering dry finish.

Beautiful tart cherry aromas. Lives up to its name cranberry juice red color, pour it hard because although I it dissipates fast the head is blood red. It’s all about cherries smooth introduction quickly leads to a source bite, then it cleans up for a second and then fades with a lively tartness.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep purple red color with a small reddish pink head that dissipates almost instantly. Vinous sweet and tart cherry dominates the nose. Light tart and a hint of musty barn round it out. The flavor is pretty sweet for a sour. Big tart and sweet cherry flavor a bit vinous with hints of funk and tart. I enjoyed this, but I’m a big fan of cherries in general.

Aroma is wonderfull cherry. Taste is sour cherry. Not all that funky. Some oak but mostly a cherry drink. And that is not too bad.

Big huge cherry aroma with funk oak barnwood and cellar characteristics. The wood was extremely well balanced with the sour cherry and other fruit character. Lively carbonation. Perfect!
