4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blood red body, thin pinkish-white head, quickly receded to a thin tight colar. Only a few stray trails of lacing. Nose is full of bold cherries, grape soda, oak and a hint of dark chocolate and lactic notes. Flavor is a bit cleaner with cherries and grape soda taking center stage. Mild sourness complements of a blend of acetic and lactic acids. Mild carbonation. Medium to light bodied. An exceptional value.

This is a great sour. As most sours, this one doesn’t have much head at all. The aroma is very sharp and almost "meaty". A very musky, dark fruit aroma that really hits you but in a good way. The taste is not as sour as some that I’ve had but it is sour enough and is a well balanced beer. Nice one to have just to sip while you are relaxing :)

Can’t argue with this rating. A super example of the style. Lovely cherry taste throughout with a nice hit of sourness. Pours a dark red color. Part of the 2012 Downtown LA Craft Beer Crawl.

A reddish ale with a soft dissipating head. The aroma of cured cherries and complex sugars hit the nose and then the palate. The beer is smooth with great balance of dark chocolate-cherry and rum flavoring. A wonderful beer.

Tap at Lucky’s Belgian Beer Festival. This was the highlight of the evening. Pours hazy brown with a slight reddish note. Small beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is sour cherries, quite pleasing. Taste is complex with sour cherry notes balancing some initial sweetness. Notes of vinegar, chocolate, and some definite barnyard funk as well. Finish is tart. Very nice wild ale.

Refreshing! Aromas of sour cherries and damp wood. Zingy sweet tart flavors on the palate remind you this isn't your average brew. Loved it.
