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.

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.

Pour from a bottle is a nice dark rich Ber with a strong sour aroma. Taste is a strong sour with a hint of tart cherries. After taste is a dry tart.

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.
