2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12.7 oz bottle, batch 2. Pours slightly hazy copper orange with a medium fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin film.
The aroma is subdued - medicinal cherry with a little butyric acid.
The flavor is super tart and acidic cherries with a little off bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, very tart and acidic cherry sour. Not as good as I remember from on tap.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours almost no head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is sour wood, in the best way.
The taste starts with a fruity sour that turns to a sharp tart flavor.
The texture is fizzy and fun.
This is a fun beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Cherry and woody barrel notes. Hazy orange pink with almost no head. Tons of acidic tartness and light cherry. Although you can see the Flanders Red, it is much too acidic and doesn’t have near the complexity.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bit clearer amber cherry in color with a tiny and quickly dissipating clearer head. Aroma is sweet and creamy cherries so delicious! Tart is really prevalent but balanced and so enjoyed with the cherries laying so well on the palate.

This cloudy reddish beer has a strongly tart aroma. It has and incredibly light mouthfeel and the strong tartness that I love. It is smooth, clean finishing and very flavorful. I like it a lot!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An impressively full bodied ’sour’ that is one of the best examples of the style (over the top American) I have had.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Absolutely overwhelming sour. Limited nose, limited fruit in the flavor. Just plain sour. Not the least bit complex.
