On tap at Coles, Buffalo NY: Pinkish-orange color with almost no head. Light oak, cherries and slight grape notes in the aroma. Pleasantly tart with a deep cherry flavor and hints of vinegar. A solid American sour ale.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Bottle. Pours a reddish orange gold with a thin off white head. Aroma is full of cherries, mainly tart but there is a sweet cherry undertone. Flavor begins sweet with grains and cherries, but tart cherries quickly take over.

thirdeye11 (6064) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2009
(12oz bottle thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours a ruby red grapefruit color with some bubbles. Nose is sour cherry, vinegar, slightly floral and some spices. Quite complex. Taste is more one dimensional but superb, rainier cherries, spices and has a delicious finish. This is a fantastic tasting beer, I loved it and want more as soon as possible.

12oz bottle. Surprisingly filtered after having the very cloudy and unfiltered regular sour recently. Pours a clear, bright reddish orange with a frothy and lasting white head. Tart cherries and wild yeast on the nose. Some light new oak notes. Slightly medicinal, but definitely sour. Very light yeasty spiciness. A pleasant earthy funkiness develops as the beer warms. No Tripel to be found on the palate. Wood tannin, tart cherries and plenty of lightly tart wild yeast. Some acetic acid. Just the smallest hint of harsh acetone on the sides of the tongue, but really not all that distracting. Not overly complex, but highly drinkable. Lively carbonation. Lactic towards the end with a very mild stinging, tart finish. Like the other Big Rock sour, insanely drinkable, but far from mind blowing. Thanks Dave!

Courtesy northernbrews. Clear red-brown color, sparse white head. Oaky tannic sour aroma, slight Nyquil character. Nice and tart throughout, fruity, some slight Belgian yeast character for the tripel character. Not bad.
