3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark mahogany color on the very of dark brown, but has red tinges. Smells like cranberry and raspberry juice that my gandmother gave me as a kid, with faint green apples. Lots of oak, green apples and cherries in the mouth. Moderately acidic. Nice lingering oaky finish. Pretty decent stuff but doesn’t go anywhere super special.

Cerise casee is French for "popped cherry", and this would be a hell of a way for one to lose their s (sour) - card. Mahogany pour, aroma of tart cherries and vinegar. Intense cherry flavor with notes of chocolate. Highly acidic, like drinking a sweet and flavorful vinegar. Almost. Delicious, but a bit much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from bottle at What the Funk!? 2014. Appearance is slightly hazy amber with a frothy cream-colored head and great lacing. Big vinegar, green apple, oak, tannic, ripe cherry skin, and grape in the aroma. Taste is cheesy, waxy, oaky, orange juice, lactic, and vanilla with a huge sour finish. Way too sour and acidic. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Way too many off-flavors and aromas to be enjoyable.

Bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Dark orangish brown appearance with a tan head. Black cherries, caramel, oak, and tannins in the nose. Fairly funky and tart flavor. Quite a bit of vinegar / acetic acid on the finish. Decent cherry flavor but kind of hard to drink. I didn’t enjoy this one as much as some of the others I was drinking with during WTF.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at the source for $6. To short-stemmed tulip, it pours a mauve-hued blood red, sustaining a bubbly, off-white ringed head barely even a fingernail in length. Aromas of Oregon Pitted Dark Sweet Cherries (can), duck fat, candied limes, salted caramel, plum skins, toffee, peppercorn, booze, and milled corn. Tastes of everything described above with the addition of cough syrup, funk, lipstick, young, oak, and rubber by mid-palate. Mildew, ginger ale, and maraschino cherries by swallow. Was indeed sugary, but the funky and bittersweet undertastes had saved this ale from being too drastic and weird. I would have this again.

Pours hazy dark brown with light off white lacing head. Aroma is dominant with sour fruit, slight cherry and oak, and a light hint of citrus. Flavor is outstanding, medium sweet, overripe fruit, cherries, and acetic tannic finish. Amazing beer. I would definitely have more of this again.
