3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark red/brown with a thick white head. Aroma is of sour cherries, dirt, cloves, and a little bit of vinegar. Flavor is very acidic with notes of tart cherries, oak and caramel. Still not my favorite style, but not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Map Room in Chicago. Wonderful surprise. Deepest ruby-red pour, thin off white head on still body. Nose is rich fruit, cherry, cranberry but also apples. Effervescent, tart sip - really full and tasty fruit body. Red and tart. Much fruitier than most ’reds’ of the style. A step up into the sour world. Very very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Falling Rock. Pours dark red-amber with a white head. Nose is funk, vinegar, sour cherries, slight yeast, and some sour fruit (red grapes, maybe?). Flavor is similar with a hint of dark sour fruity sweetness before vinegar and tart take over. Medium-bodied and an enjoyable beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
What a wonderful and surprisingly delight to see when I visited Angler’s in Lawrence. Draft pour into a 12oz goblet. Color is thick and dark-pit cherry. Some sediment in there, this was near the bottom of the keg. Low clarity and a medium head. Aroma is tangy and sour cherry pit juice. Its light an not heavy on the acetic or the lactic qualities. The flavor follows suit, absolute joy to drink. Light and refreshing, yet definitely sour. Right to style and perfect for a beautiful spring day.

Good sour cherry/apple aroma with hint of yeast. Good balanced sour that is easy to drink and still has elements of a non-sour beer (slight hop/citrus).
