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.

Fairly oak heavy with some backing tannins. Moderate lactic character and a bit of cherry

Bottle shared by Ken, pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Aroma of funk, a bit of cherries and sweet bourbon. Taste is big time tart cherries and pleasant tart bite.

Pours hazy amber. Aroma is tart with cherries and the taste follows through. Not as good as I was hoping. Ok.

Besides scores - Unfortunate nonsensical notes from tasting...sorry. Very nicely put together but not earth shattering. Interesting beer. Would hope to try again.

Bottle shared at Chris’ pad. Clear light amber pour. Caramel malt and sour stone fruit aromas. Super sour cherry notes with big caramel malts, muted wood, and vanilla flavors rounding out the taste. Very well done..

Courtesy of dschiller. 750mL pours orange with copper hues and supporting a thin near white head of foam. The aroma is a light mix of vinegar, lime, faint barnyard and a bit of apple esteriness. The taste has cherry tartness and thin acidic notes heading into some crushed aspirin tartness and vinegar. Overall I’m liking this as it doesn’t get crazy with tart acidity.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a semi-transparent amberish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; semi-sweet and funky with barrel notes and a nice, lively mouthfeel. Good beer!

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Amber pour, off white head. I get some odd stuff here. Yeasty funk, tartness, cherries, roasted lemons, leather...Interesting but not really my thing.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Hazy amber color with white head. Sour cherry, tart lemon, nutty brown malt aromas. Medium sour flavors with cherry, tart lemon, and some sharp caramel sweetness--good.
