COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

Bottle shared by jmagnus87...thanks Josh! - Pours hazy roasy amber with a ring of light tan head. Nose is cherries and a light breadiness. Fairly tart. Taste is pretty tart with cherries, a touch of vinegar, some stone fruit, and bready malt. A bit cheesy. Well-carbonated with a fluffy body.

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.

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.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours redish brown with minimal head. Aroma of bourbon, red wine, dark fruit and leather. Taste is very nice - tart fruit, brine and oaky notes. Body is a little on the thin side. Overall a very good beer.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - AUG 16, 2012
A cloudy brown beer with a quickly dissipating beige head. The aroma is wood, vanilla, cherry, and citrus. The flavor is wood and vanilla up front with a very nice tart cherry that intensifies in the finish. Quite sour but also quite delicious.

thome50 (987) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy orange to copper with minimal white head. Aroma is pronounced tart sour. Taste, acetic sour with some raspberry and cherry notes. The fruit comes through but I canít tell if they really used any. Seems to be the case. Very dry and some shoe leather notes. Overall, ok American sour that is somewhat all over the place.

Same table as the others and this was the bomb. Tasty brew liked the mild sour funkiness.

Bottle thanks to Adam. Orange amber with white head. Tart acidic lemon aroma. Some dirtiness. Funky musty. Cleans up after a while. A good amount of fruit. 7/3/7/3/15

AdamJackson (2344) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Acquired in a trade. I really enjoy these Boulevard beers. Enjoyed at 60F in a tulip. Very still, no head. The cork barely made it out of the bottle.

A - Murky reddish brown. Still. No lacing at all.

S - Nice grape skin musk on the nose, cherries and lavender with some oaky tropical fruit scent.

T - Very tart and bitter up front. Bretty, dry and crisp in the middle. Last bit is a weird identify crisis and i get vanilla and charred smoke and bourbon.

M - No carbonation, light body. Very dry.

O - Itís a weird beer. I love the start and hate the finish.
