3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours lightly hazy and deeply amber with no head. The aroma is a tangy, fruity mélange of apricot, plum, white oak and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Big-time sour cherry flavor and acidity, flanked by a soapy, minerally finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Pour at Autumn Brew Review. Glad I got to try this one! One of the top 4 sours I tried that day. Cherry with just a hint of sulfur in the nose. Excellent sourness and funk with a touch of sweetness from the cherry in the taste. Would like a bottle of this sometime to share!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Off orange pour dense off white head. Hugely tart fruit aroma a good amount of dry oak. Hints of leather amd earthy minerals. Well blended. Small well coated palate lingers but doesnt hold. Sour off cherry a fair amount of oak amd leather reminds me a bit of G black with a lot less tart. Very good.

750ml bottle. Not sure how I haven’t already rated this one but..Unfiltered orange-brown. Thin, oily head. Nice in your face sourness. This one displays more balance than the last bottle I had. The bourbon grounds it, and never overwhelms it. Unique and well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours unclear hazy amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma is sweet cherries with a tad bit of zing. Flavor brings tart not overly dry cherry flavors that settle well on the tongue with some mild but wild yeast flavors on the tongue.

In a daring move, I tried this on tap at the Amherst brewery (7-20-2013) after sampling two much-heavier bourbon-barrel-aged beverages. The results: success (and no late-night second thoughts from my stomach). The cherries are the tongue-curling stars here -- nothing overwhelming and quite delicious.
