Man this is what I look for in a sour. Delicious! Their other beers I haven’t been too happy with but this one is great. Cloudy golden color. Very distinct tart and barrel flavors. I tastes sooo good. That sourdough yeast is the bomb. I am blown away by this beer. Tart lemon/cherry, apple cider vinegar. Touch of honey. No light sour stuff here. Faint whiskey finish.

Deep golden color with dry tart cherry aromas. Amazing dry tart sour cherry taste gets you right in the jowls. Refreshing and leaves your palate ready for more.

The beer appears orange and hazy with a quarter inch or so of off-white head. My wife’s is significantly redder and darker. The aroma brings wine barrels, oak, cherries, yeast, farmhouse funk. Lovely flavor with wine character leading the way. Prominent cherries with cherry juice and oak. Light to medium in body with a mild puckering finish. Terrific. I would really like to have this again.

Pours a gorgeous red hue. Smells like pineapple upside down cake and wood. Cherries, cranberries, and barrel, complex, changing as it warms to lighter fruits such as raspberries. A nice light body married to a sturdy acidity thats balanced just right. This is a beautiful beer, I look forward to my cellared bottle.

Bottle pour. Tried this one a few days ago and had to go find another. Super sour fruit aroma. Very tart start with a lot of cherry. Long sour palate. High carbonation. Love this. Very memorable.

M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Bitter, Mildly Tart, Mildly Drying
Overall, you really do get a solid presence of the cherries and the red wine barrel separately, which makes this beer great.

Just finished drinking this (Batch #2) and enjoyed it very much. Pleasantly sour/tart with just a hint of cherry and no off flavors at all. I enjoyed this way more than I expected to, and felt that it was priced well. Glad I have another tucked away!

On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a slightly dark orange color with an off white head. The aroma is definitely funky, lightly leathery sour fruit with some sweetness that’s appropriate for the style. The flavor is full bodied and sour with light notes of balsamic, orange, leather, tart berries. Good balance of sweet and sour. Funky finish. Top notch sour brown.

Bottle from Felipe, thanks! Pours a orange amber with little to no head. Aroma is oak, chardonnay grapes, cherries. Taste is subtle funk, oak, cherries, and white wine. Fantastic. Nice clean finish. Great beer.
