decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Reddish brown pour with white head and lace. Aroma is light fruity funk and a touch of maltiness. Flavor is a sweet malt start that quickly shifts to a medium tart funk. Medium bodied and fizzy but still solid

BVery (6964) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Brownish red pour with a frothy head. Tart apple and cherry, not bad, but a bit too much vinegar for me.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bomber. Poured medium garnety brown with a well-retained, sticky beige head.. a bit of a gusher too. The aroma picked up lots of strong sour cherries, oak, and vinegar with soft fruit and biscuit undertones.. aggressive, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found fruity notes, pale malts, and a touch of sourdough at the core, wits sour cherry-infused vinegar, oak, and a little funk around.. very sour and very dry on the long finish. Medium-bodied with more carbonation than expected on the palate.. super dry and very engaging.. this was really good!

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Poured from a gushing 22 ounce bomber. Tart cherries, vinegar, chocolate, fruity. Dry finish. The vinegar character is to much for me to really get into this beer.

Bottle shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Nice pour, a translucent ruby with fairly minimal carbonation. Pretty nice nose, slight cereal grains but mostly muted cherry, wet wood, and acetic notes. Mouthfeel is medium, not too puckering. Taste is often understated, plenty of wood and cherry along with traces of chocolate, popcorn, and brine.

Westmeister (1828) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2012
22oz bottle. Despite the warnings, I still managed to forget that some of these were a gusher. Lost only a couple of ounces though. Pours a cloudy reddish with medium head. Aroma has nice tart notes of sour apple and grapes and cherries. Flavor has a nice combination of tart fruits including apple, grapes and cherries. The overall tartness was medium in strength. This was good, but nothing too memorable.

craftbeerdesign (2194) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2012
tasting on 3/15/12. ruby pour with a big 3+ finger off white head - foamed out of the bottle upon opening. off nose with light sour notes and light fruit notes - not the true flanders red aroma I’m looking for. med soft body with light sourness, grape skins and an astringent finish with light band-aid and light tartness... not the best example.

Thanks for this one, Steve. The pour is red in color with a fizzy off-white head. A nice aroma to this one. I get some hints of cherry as well as mild vinegar to with some slight funk of straw, grass, and oak. A touch of fruit, too. The flavor has a little raspberry and strawberry along with some sweet malt. A moderate tartness with only a touch of vinegar. Medium bodied with high carbonation.
