What the hell is this? Tastes like apple cider vinegar. Thats all i get is tons of apple cider vinegar and a tiny amount of sweet cherry. Not good at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Traded bottle, Batch 2012-1, best by 03-2014. Hazy brown pour with just a white ring around the edges. Slightly sour aroma with a slightly acetic finish. Big tart flavor at first, a little malt in the middle and then a relatively short finish. A little earthiness/mustiness in there. Pretty bold. Nice.

Pours orange amber mostly clear with barely a grey head. Aroma is subte, tang, tropical fruit, and a tad bit of barbecue. Body is thinner bring light cherry and tart candy with a drier sweet tangy yeast.

750 ml bottle to tulip (shared by tastybeer). Looks good; a cloudy amberish brown with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; tart and funky with notes of cherry. Tastes like it smells with some tannic notes. Good beer!

Thanks Matt! Hazy, ruby red color; minimal head/lace.
Oaky as hell. So much barrel; borders on too much barrel. Dark cherries. Fruity blend with oak, soured grain, yeast. I prefer #3, I still love this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle at large tasting. Pours a deep copper color with a slight haze and a medium sized frothy off white head. The aroma and flavor had tart fruits, cherry, lemony citrus, oak, mild sweetness, light funk with a touch of musty grape vinous character. The sour character was more prominent on the flavor. Decent.

Nice funky sour, very pucker worthy, can taste the oak. Even after a year pours beautiful dark amber.
