Tap at spuyten duyvil.. Pour is a deep Indian red with a thin collar of white head.. Moderate lacing. Smell is cherry, plum, slight vinous, and light vinegar. Taste is sweet cherry, plum.. Tart with a dry vinous finish.. Bite very similar to a Sauvignon blanc.. Light crisp mouthfeel.. Very well done and refreshing.

Oklar röd/brun i färgen med litet vitt skum. Doftar sur-söt, mogna körsbär, lite funky, vinöst, karamell. Smakar härligt sur-sött, vinöst, funky, körsbär, röda bär, vinäger. Fantastiskt.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2013
A dark amber to brown color with a white head. The aroma contains some cherries, brandy, and vinegar. The flavor isn’t too sour with a malt presence but you get cherries, a hint of citrus, and some spices. The finish is also sour. Overall a good beer.

Tmoney99 (10566) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Tap. Poured a clear orange color with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy dark sour fruit and wood alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

zizzybalubba (1407) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2013
On tap during the 43 Hours of Dark at The Birch, Norfolk, VA. Reddish-brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sour cherry, apple cider vinegar, and oak. Beautiful sour taste of tart cherry and oak. Hard to believe this is an 11.2% ABV beer as the alcohol is not detected. An awesome sour.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a murky brownish-orange with hardly any carbonation or lacing. Smells good; sweet and funky. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average (at best) on the palate. Another flatty from BFM.
