Medium-bodied with flavors of tart cherries, yeast and oak. The finish is fruity with a mildly sour cherry aftertaste. Decent overall.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle shared at GTMW ticket line then on tap at Craftsman the following day, pours a clear amber brown and with a thin head, the aroma was of sour cherries with a ton of oak and vanilla coming through as well, the flavor has a soft sour front end with with a really good sour punch in the finish, dry finish, mouthfeel was nice, oak and the bourbon shows in the finish too but mixes well with the sourness.

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Aroma of vinous sour, vanilla, oaky and dark fruit. Really a fantastic aroma. Taste does not quite match the aroma but is still good. Whiskey like flavor comes through in the flavor more than the aroma. Not as sour as aroma made me think it would be. Maybe 4 or so of 10 vinous. Whiskey flavors and oaky wood come through more over time, balanced by the dark fruit and vinous sour. Slight watery palate for a sour of its caliber. Really a good sour but a notch below the best. A bit of earthy funk mixed in as well, but predominantly vinous sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had a glass of this at the brewery. Originally started off as my dad’s beer, but after a sip, he couldn’t handle the sourness. I didn’t mind it. I enjoyed the the very tart cherry flavors and the mild aroma of bourbon and alcohol. Maybe not something I could drink a lot of, but the 8oz I had in my glass was just right.

F0BAB 2010: This p0ured a very hazed amber/br0wn b0dy with a beige ring in place 0f a head. The ar0ma had B0urb0n, tart cherries and berries, a bit fuzzy. There was a s0lid s0urness added t0 the fruity flav0rs with a splash 0f vinegar in the finish. Nice.

Whiskey on the nose and a mouthful of sour cherries. The end is a blend of cherries and yeasty notes. This is a great sour beer.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2013
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!
