(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.

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.

Amber pour, off white head. I get some odd stuff here. Yeasty funk, tartness, cherries, roasted lemons, leather...Interesting but not really my thing.

hopscotch (8529) - 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!

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Cherries, woody, some funkiness, and some bourbon.

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 corked bottle. It pours a nice rosy pink color with just a slight bubbly head. I love the color though. The smell is god. Lots of funk here and lots of oak notes. It doesn’t have that sourness in the smell though. The cherries are there, they have that distinct processed scent that only comes form the way the process door county cherries, there is something about that scent that always puts door county beers above others. I think it has something to do with the cherries and their skins. The flavor follows though it isn’t as funky or oaky. A bit more sourness creeps in but it is still decently mild. There isn’t a huge vinegar kick but there is a nice bit of tartness from the cherries themselves. I think this one could be aged, and I wish I had more than 1 bottle.
