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.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours unclear hazy amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma is sweet cherries with a tad bit of zing. Flavor brings tart not overly dry cherry flavors that settle well on the tongue with some mild but wild yeast flavors on the tongue.

phaleslu (6509) - 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.

arkurzynski (1519) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2011
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.

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Cherries, woody, some funkiness, and some bourbon.

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
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.

Newk (299) - - AUG 8, 2012
Poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours a good dark red color with a small head. Very good flemish red aromas of sour cherries, some funk and tart citrus notes as well. Good depth with a very good medium feel and flavors of sour cherries and a good amount of tart tones as well. Finishes off nice and dry. This is a real good flemish red. Nice and tart with good flavors and aromas.

b3shine (5427) - Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2013
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!

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..
