sitzds (318) - - MAR 25, 2014
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.

AshtonMcCobb (3674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - deep cherry red with an attractive thin pink head. Nose - coconut and jam sponge. Then tart cherry. Taste - more cherry integrated with coconut again. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long persistent lean finish. Overall - really intense cherry and barrel flavours and nice palate. Great.

krumbum (639) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 16, 2015
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.

johnnnniee (2730) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 14, 2015
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.

Doghair (286) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Sour cherry aroma. Dark burgundy with no noticeable carbonation. Sour dark cherry flavor with a Belgian yeast in the finish. Nice, almost like wine.

jesperhammer (3368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2015
01-MAY-2015, bottle @Søernes Ølbar following yellow session @CBC15. Clear red, no head. 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.

(bottle) clear deep ruby colour with an almost purple head. aroma of dark, ripe cherries and blackcurrants, quite perfumed, with a hint of custard, rose oil, some very light nettles and lemons. flavour is tart cherry juice, blackcurrants and bread dough, with lots of lemon juice, herbal hops and a dry finish. full-bodied with soft carbonation. missing some funk.

emacgee (4305) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2015
Pours an incredibly deep red, almost black in the glass. One finger of pink head. Nose is like crushed cherries, fresh cherry flesh and pit. A light funk and tartness shows as well. Flavor is full on tart cherries. Light bodied and tart.

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!
