4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I obtained this bottle in a trade with a great trader @thebeerprophet. Brought this to a bottle share at Proof. Pours a hazy very dark peach color. Good amount of head on the first pour that dissipated fairly quickly. Second pour got more head than the first. Nice medium white collar. Aroma is very earthy/woody and sweet-tart cherry blend. Taste is amazing. Very similar to the aroma, with some of the caramel/wood coming out. Mouthfeel is viscous for a sour; like chewing an overripe marischino cherry. Nice carbonation despite the low head. Pretty thick body. So glad I traded for this to share with good people.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle pours an orange amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is cherries with some yeast funk and hints of bourbon. Taste is sour cherries and lemon with a bit of alcohol burn in the finish. OMG, I am starting to get used to these sours and saisons and whatever these brewers are making these days. But, where are all those Imperial stouts, DIPA’s and barley wines I love so much.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap at Bier:Thirty, Boise. Hazy red fruit punch color. Some coarse white ring bobbles, lots of sour cherries on the nose. Flavors as well are cherries and some warm soft flavors that round it out nicely. Plenty sour, yes, but full bodied and other soft fruit flavors that mellow everything out. Very good, complex but mellow fruit sour.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
7/21/16. 750mL bottle from Five Points. For $35 fucking dollars. Seriously, wtf? Red pour, looks about like red Kool-Aid, I had to pour hard to get any semblance of a head, and there was a little, but it sizzled away quick. Not surprising given the acidity and ABV, I suppose. Whiskey is apparent on the aroma, loads of cherries, lots of sourness, some other fruits. Super sour flavor, very sour, tons of sour cherries, undertones of whiskey, tobacco, oak, leather, fruity. Like a super sour cherry sour in the bright ways but also those nice undertones of a complex Flanders or something. Interesting, tasty, very sour, and too damn expensive, but still delicious.

Holy moly, this is an interesting beer. Really solid sour. Lots of cherry character, almost like a liquor. Some vanilla, honey, and sour apple. Tried at the Oedipus international beer festival in 2016 with Dave.

2014 edition on tap in June 2016 at the brewpub in Portland.
Lovely red-orange body that sparkles with highlights and is covered by a fine white head. High level of tartness that goes well with the boozy (whisky) and fruity Some significant cherries in the aroma elevate the aroma well above an average sour.
