Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul! This beer appears a ruby and brown hue with an off white head. The aroma consists of cherries, funk, wild yeast, and oak. The beer is very earthy. I find it very enjoyable. The flavor is complex, but the various components of the taste profile don’t seem to co-mingle as effortlessly as some of the other great cherry sours & wilds I have tried. Perhaps the nearly 10% ABV plays a role in this way. Overall, it was a tasty beer and certainly worth trying.

radarsock (882) - Vermont, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle form Drsilverworm, consumed alone. Smells of biscuits, flaked rye, table sugar, maraschino cherries and rubber. Tastes of Dihos with a syrupier mouthfeel and certainly sweeter grain. The cherries come off in the flavor way too artificial, sugary and altogether unripe. The end-palate is total shit: viscous, thick and bothersome, almost like drinking cough suppressant without its obvious chemical-burn harshness.

Bottle (dated March 31, 2010) to oversized snifter. Looks okay; Amber with low carbonation and virtually no head or lacing. Smells pretty good; sour and cherry. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Good, but overpriced.

Hazy red brown beer. No head. Sour woody nose. Light semi crisp palate. Mildly sour wood. Lactose sweetness - almost creamy. Tingly sour minerals induce salivation before a light finish. Sour aftertaste.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
12 oz. bottle gifted to me by thebaldwizard for no good reason- thanks a ton, Joe! Dated 3/31/10. Pours a hazed tea color with no head at all. Aroma of sour cherries, oak, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, and apples. Flavor of caramel, apples, oak, vanilla, tart cherries, plums, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with a funky, fruity, mildly tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good sour, probably a little better fresh, though.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2012
Bottle, 12oz. A finger-thick off-white head forms over a clear, dark golden body. The aroma is lightly funky, with berries, cellar and a faint note of spices. Quite tender and pleasant. The flavor has berries, cellar and a little touch of caramel, dry and tart on the palate. Some vinegarish funkyness too, leading to a finish dominated by red berries. A quite nice one indeed, but not my favorite sour beer. 110930

DrSilverworm (5932) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2012
12oz bottle, bottled March 31, 2010. Foamy tan head, noisily fades to clear dark red color. Sharp, more pronounced carbonation. Kind of dry texture, but it’s not the most smooth or drinkable thing. Sort of bitey, acidic texture. Satisfyingly sour, no lack of that, but of the small handful of sours I’ve tried so far, this isn’t the tastiest execution (although it’s certainly interesting). Cherry juice aroma underneath the sourness. Sour-funky brett aroma.. I preferred the Brabant to this much more, it’s honestly just to acidicly sour for me.

gunnfryd (10204) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle. Deep red amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is brett, sourness, berries, yeast. Flavour is brett, sourness, cellar, vanilla, cherries, yeast. Nice beer.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle pours burnt red-amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of cherry, oak, earthy funk, and a slight herbal quality. Flavor shows the same juicy acidity with underlying notes of vanilla and booze. Overall body is light to moderate, lightly sweet and finishes with moderate drying acidity.

A really good sour. Fulls of aroma’s and flavors of cherry, wood, grass. A nice sour finish. Well done.
