Draft at Of Love and Regret, Baltimore. Ruby with brownish tiny; almost rusty colored pour. Medium to fuller bodied pour. Tart cherries, earthy. Not a huge picker but nicely sour and tart. Nice

375 ml bottle poured into a teku glass. Pours a clear ruby with a beige head of foam. The aroma was tart cherries and brown sugar. Tastes sour with some malty sweetness lingering in the background. Medium carbonation.

after4ever (6731) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2015
375, heavy champagne bottle with cork and bale. Wow, thanks, B! What a treat. Pours a murky dark rubied garnet with a loose tan head. Forceful tangy sweet tart pie cherry nose with subtle balsamic and white vinegars counterpoints way in the background. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy sweet tart pie cherries on the mid palate as well, soft tart counterpoints from the ferment. Not a lot of base beer showing through anymore.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Funky and cherry fruity aroma with some light flowery notes. The flavor has a nice funky base, some fruity cherry sweetness, and floral hops. Good stuff.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle share with my buddy Blake and his wife Gina (both sour heads). Pours a nice light brown/reddish color with very minimal head. Good carbonation shown with the pop of the top. Aroma is slightly funky with hints of a good sour time. Flavor isn’t super tart or funky but somewhere in the middle. Not a bad showing here.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Bottle @ Stephen’s house, courtesy of Lukaduke (I believe). Thanks a bunch! Pours a somewhat hazy, bright orange appearance with a very small, off white head. Quite spicy, fairly floral, tangy pie cherry, somewhat funky, fairly yeasty aroma- not nearly as complex or interesting as Coolship Cerise Kind of juicy, tart, sort of like black cherry, slightly tart, pie cherry, slightly sour, kind of woody, toasty malty flavor. Not nearly as much going on as some as the Coolship releases.
