3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle (2011 project) in a taster. Pours amber/brown with a small head. Aroma of sourness, cherries, some oak, hints of spices, and some light darker malts. The sourness and the cherries dominate this, and they’re great. Average texture. A really cool beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a murky brownish color with deep reddish hues and a light brown pinkish head. Aroma is mildly tart, oak, cherries. Flavor packs a sour punch, with cherry and other sour fruits. Light to medium body with a nice tart finish. Excellent sour ale!

75cl bottle shared. Brownish red, with pinky white head. Tart cherry nose, lots of wood and barrel, some sweeter more medicinal cherry too, twist of citrus. Good vibrant cherry taste, juicy, then more acidic, then drying. Good woody funk, more barrel notes. Cherry and wood linger. Good.

Out of a bottle in flight at Harry’s Hofbrau. Tart, mild cherry. Hazy brownish res with off white head that collars. Taste is overt cherry pie with sweet tarts finish. Semi-dry.

"light cherry and sour/funky aroma followed by a rather light feel and flavor as well. 2008 bottling...wondering if the cherry and or sour aspects have faded a bit. still tasty. nothing wrong with this beer, but it was the most expensive beer of the night and i’m scoring it lower than just about all of the others. i was expecting a little more fruit and/or sour/tartness. slightly fresher = slightly better, but the apricot kicks this one butt :)"

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 Foggy guava color, fine grained head. Wine bottle, bad label. Sour fruity, lambicky aroma. Tongue - curling sourness. Kicks tail. ’Nuff said. Thanks to the fellow Ratebeerians @ Baby Proof.

Poured an amber red color with aromas of sour cherries, light funk, some malt and more sourness. Flavors were light cherries, and some sourness, nothing that is going to peel your tooth enamel away, but a nice mix of tart cherries, and sourness.

Cloudy pink, little head of fine bubbles. Earthy sweet, bark and cherry. Puckering aniseed barrel as you sniff deeper. Sookering tart tang throughout, deep burn. Rich juicy sweetness. Big spicy finish, gristly and cleansing.
