2010 bottling. Pours pretty orange-red amber, small ring of bubbles. Aroma has held up well and is maybe my favorite part of this beer: dry sour cherry, oak, light red wine, orange, though also has some slightly volatile chemical notes. Taste is sour pie cherry and preserved lemon, lemon juice, some sweet malts too. Very nice.

750ml 2013 bottle pours cloudy dark brown red with small head. Nose is acidic, wet earth, cherry, cola, vinegar, light wet forest funk. Taste is high acidity, earthy, wet ground, damp wood, flemish-red character, cherry and dark tart berry. Not much complexity. Finishes sour, cherry red vinegarette, wet ground, subtle oak vanilla, toast. Fine but simplistic.

750ml corked bottle pours a reddish brown color with a finger of pinkish head that retains well and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is cherries and funk. Taste is very sour with a cherry tartness and fruity sweetness. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Overall, this is one big sour beast, just like sucking on a whole lemon per sip.

Poured into a plastic cup showing dark copper, translucent rims, and an opaque center.
The nose shows a very strong oak background with notes of bing cherries.
The palate is highly carbonated and full bodied. Strong oak background on the palate with big flavors of sour cherries. A light to moderately intense grassiness appears on the finish and the linger. Personally for my tastes there’s a bit too much oak that does not harmonize with the fruit flavors.

Taster at the brewery. Deep cherry red with a pink head and lacing. Aromas of tart cherries with a generous amount of funk. Taste is similar, with sour cherry, tartness and funk creating a puckering sip. Medium body and carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a tart finish.
