Thanks, Mark! The pour is orange with a tall white head. Strong cherry aroma, but also a weird salty note. Some oak, a bit of pineapple, straw, and lemon. The flavor is highly acidic. The cherry character is not quite as pronounced. Mild red wine vinegar, leather, and some citric acidity. Very simnple, but good.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is fruity, light toasted and peachy to light grapefruity. Citric, fruity and tart. Smooth fruity and crisp into a smooth tart finish.

On tap, pours cloudy red with no head/lacing. Aromas and taste of french oak, sour cherries, vanilla, lacto, leather, cherries and lemons. Salivating sour that was hard to stop drinking.

Bottle. Two different pours. First is super clear, and the second is cloudy. the color is a nice copper/bronze with a minimal head. Slightly carbonated, but this could use a touch more. Slight cherry aroma, but this has more vinegar and tartness going on. Taste is cherry and loads of acidity. Balls, this is good. Maybe slightly undercarbonated. I dig this.

Dunt (283) - Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2012
Brought this bottle to a sour tasting. Pours a pale orange in color with no carbonation. Smells acidic, some cherry, general lactic sourness. Pretty sour, light cherry, almost abrasive sourness. Light mouthfeel, light carbonation, almost flat, medium finish. Run of the mill sour, it’s tasty but not really a standout. Good first effort, I think they can definitely build on this.

750 ml bottle thanks to alpar, poured a murky red color with aromas of funk, wood, vanilla, and a feint hint of tart cherries. Flavor is the same, not much tart and funk on the flavor, if you don’t like sours, this is the gateway beer to sours. Thanks a ton man, I appreciate this ber and went well with the sour breakfast at the Brass Tap.

ReggieDunlap (3030) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pours an opaque amber/rose color with a thin tan head...doesnt look too lively...no retention or lacing really. Aroma has nice tartness with sour cherry...some funk and oak...faint hint of vanilla. Flavor isnt as complex...sour cherry tartness with a hint of a sulfur note. Mouthfeel is light and very watery...lifeless...finish is dry and has a bit of funk...thin. somehwat disappointing.

A:A: A little murky but nothing too bad. Very nice red hue and a decent amount of carbonation. Looks nice :) Strong fresh fruit sourness. Definitely cherry. T: Excellent! This is smooth and has a perfect amount of sour and funk. I think this is well balanced (or at least to my liking) it is. The tartness attacks the tongue and prickles the back of your throat but it still has a nice crisp after taste. P: Well balanced not too thin and not a syrup. I think this is about right for a sour. O: Absolutely fantastic. One of my favorite sours and its also impressive that this was their first attempt. If you can, GET SOME.
