Bomber. Pours a cloudy red amber with a beige head and tart cherry and oaky aroma. Taste is strong tart and sour up front, lots of sweet, tart cherry with fruits and oak notes leading to a sour finish.

Khyber Pass sour event. Comparing a 2009 vintage to the 2014. Notable difference on color. The new one is bright dark red while the 2009 is a much cloudier orange copper. Both are very tart sours. 2009 feels even more sour than the 2014. Big cherry flavors. The fresher version feels smoother and fruitier. The older version is more bracing. GREAT cherry sour!

Bottle shared at my place with great friends. Small snifter. Pours a reddish brown with minimal head and lacing. The stark aroma hits you with super sour cherries and some wood barrel. The taste is amazing with the cherry tartness hitting quickly, followed by the wooden barrel and other fruits. Finish is somewhat dry and tart, The balance and blend of the cherry flavors, the tartness, and the barrel are simply amazing.

Pours a rich deep red. Aroma is boozy, cherry, and some funk. Taste is mouth puckering. Beautifully tart and delicious. Some wood in the back end. Somewhat comparable to Supplication but just more of the cherry tartness. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
