Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.

Wow, very authentic stuff...not too much cherry or oak, and very enticing. Great flavor balance too. Probably the best thing I had at Tria on this visit.

Now this was really good, one of the better beers Iíve had in a while, it was so good from start to finish and I was pissed that it was finished. Quite a positive tart beer experience, nifty taste. Big and dark this was. Nice head to boot. Rather mild tart and first but then it gets a little more tart as the session continues. So nice, great taste. Fun, civilized tart beer experience. I really liked this. Would like to have a case of this in bottles.

Tap at the BH on Bainbridge. Dark brown with red highlights, foamy dense lightly pink white head. Nose sour cherries and dark malt, taste medium bitter with fleeting bitterness, strongly sour with a nice lactic and malt base, fades to a bready finish. Clean, full, crisp and refreshing body. Head laces, overall very dry and pleasantly high in degree of woodiness, a treat for the gums. Complexity wise, itís a tad too straightforward for best in class, but itís still up there with the Belgians.

(draft @ Super Sub & Six Pak - DuBois, PA) Copper pour with a thin head. Nice tart aroma with some light sweetness from the cherries. Flavor starts off tart but fades quickly and leaves a rather odd finish. Canít really describe it but it almost reminded me of a band-aid.

[5629-20130816] Tap. Mild aroma, not much coming through but a little cherry fruit. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with a quick foamy white head. Mild watery cherry fruit grain flavour. Light-medium body has a sour cherry kick in the background. Interesting. (5/3/7/3/11) 2.9

Reddish brown pour with aroma of tart cherry, oak, and a touch of funk. Modest but evident sour cherry flavor upfront with some oak and a little funk. Very nice.
