Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis, but drank mostly by me. Very hazy auburn with a lively beige head. Sour cherries and acetic sourness are softened by oak and vinous traits. Yum.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with quickly settling head and stringy lace. Aroma is tart, oaky, vinous, plum, cherry, leather. Flavor is mild to moderately tart, buttery oak, with a tart, dark fruit, cherry finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and a mildly astringent finish. Very enjoyable.

On tap, slightly hazy ruby pour with no head. Aromas of wine and sour cherries. Flavor is sour upfront with some subtle oak, cherry, and wine notes. Nice and tart but not over the top sour. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle (2011 vintage) pours hazy ruby red with no head. Nose is rich tart cherry, oak, and dark fruits. Taste is sweet and sour cherry, barrel, vanilla notes, dark fruits, raisin. Finish is sour cherry, raisin, sweet notes. A touch of carbonation would have helped a lot, but the sourness held up the flavors nicely. Enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy amber. Nose of sour cherries, wood, red wine. Nice sour, tart, woody taste. It’s more a sourness that grows into a tartness and then mellows out. Wood in the back all the time. Don’t get the booze at all, really mellow, light body but put together very well. Amazing, but my only complaint is that it finishes a bit too quick.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange/red with a small soapy off-white head. Aroma is berries, grapes, some acetic notes, vinegar, malts, wood and a little bit of alcohol. Taste has strawberries, berries, vinegar, a medium sweetness and a soft sourness. Slightly dry finish and dangerously drinkable for 11%. Medium body and soft carbo. Nice, but not as good as the white wine BA I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky red brown with sparse bubbles for a head that fade quickly to nothing. Aroma is red berries, wood, slightly musty, and a hint of vinegar. Taste is tart, sour cherry, wood, acidic, with a faint sweetness in the middle. Dry in the finish. Really good overall.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Pours a somewhat cloudy dark amber - almost red. Tart aroma. Classic sour taste, somewhat mellow. Not bad for a sour.
