Bottle from Rob - thanks! Murky orange pour with minimal head. Awesome aroma of tart cherries, wine, and some leathery funk. Nice tart on the tongue but not too puckering. Really nice.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Sour, lactic nose with a little funk in the background. Murky light orange pour with a white head. Bright snappy lactic taste with subtle cherry and dark fruit. Refreshing and nice.

This one poured a lighter red cololr with a white head. Aroma was of sour cherries, pale malt, and lactic acid. Flavor was similar, fairly straight forward, a bit mild on the cherries. But fairly tasty.

Poured orange and amber. Smelled of cherry and hints of sulfur. The palate is overwhelmed immediately; extremely sour. Had a slight alcohol burn.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle into snifter. Pours hazy gold with almost no head. Cherry tart aroma with hints of wild sour yeast. The taste is very complex with sour cherries and the wine barrels coming through beautifully. Slightly tart with a smooth finish. Great sour ale.

Bottle to snifter (Batch 2). Looks good; a cloudy reddish orange with eggshell head that quickly dissipates into very thin lacing. Smells and tastes of cherries and funk with a tart, lively mouthfeel along with some oak and a vinous presence. Good stuff!

This is a good sour, smells of lactic acid and some fruity notes as well, it taste pretty much like a sour bomb, lots of lacto up front and then there is some fruit sweetness, finish is dry
