Tap at Samís in Durham. I ordered a glass for $7 and didnít realize they were going to pour me a huge ass glass. I was trying to go in and out of the store. oh well. This was pretty good. Dark reddish, black cherry color, with a large foamy off-white head. Notes of sour black cherry, earthy, yeasty funk. A little muddled and watery when compared to the big boys.

Bottle from hbmason...thanks Tim! - Pours rosy amber with lots of cascading bubbles up to a thin foamy light tan head. Nice tart cherry nose, SweetTarts, metal, light dry malt, funky Bretty yeast with just a hint of plastic. Taste has a bit more plastic, with a dry, bitter tart malt, muted dry cherries, a bit of mineral, and a long bitter finish. Lots of carbonation, and really puckering. A little too bitter for my tastes, but this was still worth a drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Blind Tiger. More dry than tart in the aroma: slightly vegetal with mild notes of coffee and tart cherries. Mild tartness from the cherries with some soft chocolate malt. Tartness increases as it warms. This got better as it warmed. Mild and simple sour but nonetheless enjoyable.

When put up to the nose this one is pretty damn nice. Itís a nice sourness, not over the top, and the cherries come through really nicely. But both the fiance and I agreed that the taste was rather lacking. The really nice sourness and cherries were there but it was just really really light and faded away really fast off the palette. I just kept on drinking and drinking it hoping it would all add up but it didnít. I really just wanted a bit more from this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7oz bottle picked up at the brewery in Portland, ME. Bottled in November 2011. Pours a murky, orange-amber colored body with a thin, fizzy, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is dry brett and dusty funk with a moderate cherry tartness. The cherries give off just a slight sweetness as well. A very light biscuit malt behind the funk and cherries with some acidity and earth. Flavor is similar. Dry brett, dusty yeast funk, and a slight earthiness up front before some cherries come in with a moderate tartness and a touch of sweetness. Again, a very light biscuity malt backing comes in towards the end with some acidity and a bit of a floral fruitiness. Finishes very dry and bretty with lots of dusty funk and a moderate cherry tartness. Some earthiness as well before leaving a medium length aftertaste and a slight alcohol warmth. Light body and a somewhat fizzy carbonation. Overall, I was expecting more, but this wasnít bad. Not overly complex IMO with more dusty funk and dry brett than cherry tartness. A slight malt note behind everything with a light body and a nice dryness. Glad to have tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy copperish pour with no head. Aroma of light vinegar, cherries, kind of on the flemish red side of things, some brett notes. Taste is surprisingly rather sweet than sour, some cough syrup notes, syrupy cherries, light vinegar. Palate is a tad flat and medium bodied. Not bad, but definitely not one of their good ones.
