3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[bottle from LCBO]
Sour, vinegary aroma with a little pickle juice and ethyl acetate and lots of fruits; complex. Crystal clear mahogany under a lacy, off-white, shiny cover. Sour flavour up front with a touch of vinegar and then cherries as well as some red life savers. A touch of sweetness follows the sour, that may be a bit of back sweetening--hard to tell for sure. Complex fruity accents include sour grapes. Light body, moderate carbonation, mouth watering sour finish.

Pours deep red with no head. Aroma of raspberry, plum, balsamic vinegar, wood, funk. Taste is very tart up front, with light sweetness and astringency following. I’m not big on sours but this one is really nice.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 On draft from Tornado in SF- Rated on 6-5-13. Pours dark red / orange with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is dark cherry, alcohol, vanilla. Sourest beer I?ve ever head, light sweet. Nice long, dry sour finish. This and the RR sours are the best I?ve had of the style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker pour with a medium tan head. Strong sour cherry aroma, very fruity on the nose. Very sour taste, not at all unpleasant with complex flavors that are fruit forward. Carbonation sharp on the tongue. A challenging beer if you are not already familiar with or into sours.
Would I drink again? definitely.
Would I buy/order again? maybe. sours are still a mystery to me and I would order anything I’ve never tried before something I’ve already had.

Dark brown pour with a thin cream colored head. Nice nose of cherries and malt. A bit sweet, but tart in the finish. Medium to full mouthfeel and a nice lasting finish.
