2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to willisread for sharing the bottle!
Poured into a wine glass showing light caramel brown and sparse white foam.
The nose shows light and barely perceivable cherries.
The palate is highly carbonated and light bodied. Highly tart such that any other flavors are barely noticeable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy blood orange color. The cherries are pronounced with oak. The mouth is sour and overwhelms the cherries. Some oak is there, but sourness just dominated way too much.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aging in wine barrels give this beer another layer of complexity. Full of sour cherry goodness that really lingers on the palate. Not lacking for flavour.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle picked up in Napa. Pours a rich, hazy, golden color. Nose has hints of cherries along with the bit of funk that sour beers are known for. Taste is a nice bite of bitter cherries, lingering for just a couple of minutes, begging for another taste. Light carbonation and great, silky mouthfeel. This sour holds together even as it warms a bit, unlike some lesser sours that lose a lot of sour characteristics as they warm. Definitely recommended!
