rosenbergh (8252) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Draught at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Portland, OR. Clear deep ruby red colour with a small off-white head. Cherries, black cherries, mild sweetness, mild sugar and some sourness in the aroma. The flavour is cherries, candies, Knight Rider bubblegums from the 80's, mild sourness and some sugary sweetness. Very balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Cascade Barrel House. 2013. Deeper brown, creamy tan foam. Tart sip, solid jammy raspberry. Good funk, solid sour. Fruity full body. Lovely. Not as sour as most.

bytemesis (4239) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle, 2011 project. Pours hazy reddish burnt umber, small lasting beige head that laces well. Aroma is oaky, fruits, some toffee, a hint of tart cherry, light funky damp basement. Flavor is medium tart and lightly funky, fruity and very oaky, almost vinous. Medium body, acidic finish. Quite tasty after all this time.

Their best sour, perhaps there most common...big huge cherries, some wine and Brett. Champagne like carbonation bringing out more cherries and sour fruits. Great fruity tart finishing balance.

Deep red tart cherry aromas. Thick brownish red colors no head. Smooth sour dark cherries flavor with a little zip in the finish. Lasting sour pockets hidden in your mouth after the sip is gone.

RexTalionis (2958) - FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny dark red in color with virtually no head. Sour berries, notes of cherries and malts in aroma. Some wood and funkiness too. Nice indeed. Tart, good tasting. Sour notes, more cherries, bit of toast and oaky vinegar in taste. Funky and earthy notes too. Ends quite dry with even some lemony notes behind the cherries. Excellent.

Bottle, shared by a kind soul, in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a dark red with a small head.

The aroma is rich and very cherry forward, itís got lemon, itís got sour cherries, itís got some more cherries. Itís mildly funky.

The flavor is very sour, itís woody, itís intensely lemony with lots of sour cherry character. Itís dry, gracious itís sour.

I get why folks dig this, I think I would have thought it was heavenly 5 years ago... but its just so damn sour. Itís a good beer, but toning down the sourness could only help itís cause.
