Deep copper color with an amber hue. There is a faint earthy aroma with a hint of cherries and no carbonation. The tart, sour flavor is only intensified by the cherries. The body is smooth and slightly sweet with a mildly dry finish but overall the flat, tart taste dominates this beer. Not bad but I would have liked a stronger oak presence from the barrels.

Deep orange almost red. Nice pop on the cork. Mild barnyard, citrus, lactic acid. Moderately sour sweet tart flavor, citrus fruit, mild cherry, faint funk, and a hint of vanilla. Dry, sour finish. Pretty clean palate-wise. A pretty solid sour from the limited that I have tried.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2011
On tap at the GTMW 2011. Clear amber with next to no head. Aroma of oak, cherry, tannins, bourbon and caramel. Nice job on the sour beer as its reminiscent of wine with a nice barrel component. Taste of oak, vanilla, bourbon, cherry and yeast. Tart and sour, I hope this gets into bottles.

wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Tasted on draft at FoBAB 2010. Pours cloudy brown with a pink tint and a thick white head that leaves decent lace. The nose is sandy (like wet beach sand) with chocolate, cherry, brett funk, and some tartness. The flavor has that same sandy thing with chocolate, cherry, and more sour than expected based on the nose. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long sour and milk chocolate finish.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Draft sample at FOBAB 2010. Pours a hazy amber color with a small but resilient bone white head. Notes of cherries, raspberries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, balsamic vinegar, and caramel. Medium-bodied with melow carbonation and a tart, funky, and sweet mouthfeel. Nice marriage of a sour with bourbon barrels. Surprised to see the relatively low ratings on here because I really liked this.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured a hazy amber with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of tart red berries, particularly raspberries, with a hint of bourbon. Flavor had sour berries, particularly raspberries again, as well as funk that was a backing note.

kbutler1 (1345) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Draft at the Great Taste. Pours a rust mahagony color with a nicely formed white tan head. The nose is way more sour and tart fruit notes than I expected. CW really have outdone themselves on this one and was a bit surprising to say the least. Some malty type flavors up front followed by the full force hit of the cherries that impart both a sweet and sour/tart taste to the beer. Light mouthfeel. Overall, a fairly good sour that ranks pretty well but still needs a little time to fully develop.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2010
(Draught) Pours a cloudy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, florals, and oddly flour. Flavor of vinegar, sour dough bread, pedio, and cherries. The aroma and flavor don’t compliment each other.
