Thanks to adnielsen for this one in trade. Cheers, Aaron! Pours a hazy dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is oak, sour cherries, oak, vinous fruit, and slight balsamic vinegar. Flavor is similar- nice oak, sour cherry, vinous fruit, and tartness abound. Medium in body and a nice sipping sour that I would have no clue about the alcohol content if I didn’t look.

TURDFERGUSON (4043) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle, thanks Armin. Deep black cherry red with spotty tannish lace. Nose of cherry, white wine, buggy, wood. Flavor is sharp cherry acidity with a musty, basement like finish. If tamed down a little, could be really nice.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Pour from a bottle thanks to Robert. Darkish red in color with not alot of carbonation. Flavors from the Zinfandel barrels present. Dark fruit and grape flavors up front. Good dose of sour tartness in the mix. Liked this beer for sure.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Appearance: Pours a midnight red with no head.

Aroma: Sweet red wine, caramel. Very funky.

Taste: Tart, tannins, dark fruit caramel and fennel seed.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, low carbonation.

Overall: Familiar to the series, but still very unique for a sour.

Hair6a11 (1475) - Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle; Pour is murky dark brown / amber highlights - with a mild khaki head in this glass. The nose is excellent - funky, earthy, leather, cherry, vinous nose - the flavor profile has more of the vinegar, citrus rinds, sour cherry, earthy oak and vanilla elements - it is heavy on the vinegar but I enjoyed this one immensely.

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle from adnielson. Thanks aaron! Dark brown with a reddish edge and a small off-white head. Aroma is sour and loaded with sour cherries, tart grapey notes, some light wood, balsamic vinegar. Flavor is sour and just damn delicious. Lots of fruit, vinegar, wood, cherries, vinous notes. I fucking love these sour beers from Avery. Bad ass!

drfabulous (6421) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Draught at Beer Trappe. Vinegar. Cherry. Little bit of red wine. This is a puckery sour and well done as are all in this series.

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2011
On tap @ RnH w Streets and James. Dark purple pour, magenta hue. Looks like a port wine. Cannot even get a head if I shake it up a little. Aroma is tart, taste is the same. Really nothing distinguishable but just a really well done sour with the perfect amount of mouth-puckeriness. Some grape. Guess that comes from the zinfandel barrel. Good sour.

jredmond (7402) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Draft at rattle with Brendan and streets. Pours a deep hazy red body with no head. Aroma is extra spicy, vinegary sour. Mouthfeel is light thinner than expected with notes of vinegar, sour fruit, and dry spicy tart.
