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.

Bottle, Fancy Al Fresco Tasting, Cheers Paul< /b>

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.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours brown with a light bit of purple and an off-white head. The aroma has heavy cherries, spice, cinnamon, rich berries, red grapes and mild oak. It has a medium rich body with light mild carbonation. The flavor starts out with rich cherries, berries, pleasing tartness and wine barrel. It is quite dry and spicy. The finish has heavy wine barrels and oak along with cherries and phenolic spice. Really solid.

Not enjoying sours. Novelty of this has worn off. Champagne? Yuck. Had this on draft at cascade brewery in Portland.
