Bottle shared by Moejuck at the Jackie Oís 5th Anniversary Extravaganza. Pours a vibrant pink color with no head. Aroma of sour cherries with some sparkling dry wine character and a bit of sweetness. Sour and acidic flavor to start, balanced nicely by sweet cherry before a lemony tart finish.

25 oz bottle. Pours bright and clear with a nice pinkish rosy glow. Minimal fizzy off white head that completely vanished very quickly. The nose is quite acidic smelling with very tart smelling sour cherries. Some woody notes, cherry pits, maybe a touch of acetone. The flavor is not as acetic as I was fearing up front, itís really quite well balanced between the acid and the funk. Nice tartness from the cherries, they taste really natural with a nice cherry skin quality. Mouthfeel is bone dry with a nice level of wood tannins. Lingering funkiness adds some depth to the beer that some American Wilds just donít have. Another good one from Ciscoís Woods Series.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy pinkish orange color with a short lived off-white head. S: The nose is actually pretty decent for a cherry sour. Pie filling, lots of wood, grassy funk, and a moderate level of acidity. Definitely a good mix of sweet and sour cherry. T: Cherries are evident right away. While they are the primary flavor, the beer is pretty light overall. A pleasant and easy going sourness to this one. Grass and wet oak provide a mild funkiness, along with perhaps a touch of hay. M: The body is on the light end of medium with a moderate carbonation and a slightly dry finish. D: Definitely better than the Dark Woods, and probably Monomoy Kriek too. Really easy to drink.

750 cc from Caponeís. Pours hazy coppery toward ruby withh 1-finger off-white head. Nose is earthy, peaty, cherry. Tastes very tart and acetic, earthy, with cherry, and dusty musty ester notes. Palate is fruity, tart, complex, and remains earthy, peaty, and tart cherry-fruity throughout. Yet another enjoyable 750 from the Cisco BA series.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of acetic acid, cherry, oak, slight horse blanket, and slight funk. Poured orange in color with no head. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is heavily sweet and slightly tart. Tastes of cherry, oak, funk, "proprietary bug(s)," and some acetic acid. Medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Cherry, oak, slight acetic acid, and light funk finish is heavily sweet and lightly tart.

Very nice cherry and baking spices aroma - not very funky. Flavor is pretty sour, with a wee bit more funk coming through the tart cherries. Quite tasty.

Not a style I am really into yet, but I am willing to try. Like all other Cisco brews, I knew enough to swirl the sediment into the glass with this one. Therefore a hazy murky pinkish amber color. No head at all. Fizzy mouthfeel, although the carbonation is low. Mouthfeel like an almost flat soda. Aroma is an interesting light tart cherry. Flavor is distinctive of cherry with some oaky and vanilla notes. Dry finish. Not too sweet. I am trying to figure out what I can mix this with, cause it begs to be mixed with something.
