4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Backlogged. Bottle shared with Annie baby in January of 2011. Poured a blood red color with medium to large thich head with great lacing, Aromas and flavor of sour cherry, black cherry, funky barn, wood, vanilla, and other rich notes. Mouthfeel was super thick but still tameable. Just so much residual cherryness left in the mouth. Awesome sour, my favorite Cisco to date. Cheers

Bottle in support of Massachusetts for the afc championship game, I had good luck with the pedelar last Sunday. Pours like a glass of Beaujolais with zero head. Great smell of sour cherries. Low carbonation. Tastes of cherries, oak, vinegar, earth, light cough syrup. Very pleasant with nice finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, caged and corked, celebrating the Ravens’ first-round victory. Pours like an appertif, shiny and dark red, barely any carbonation or head whatsoever. Very medicinal aroma. Tastes like what you’d expect it to taste if was cherry juice aged in oak barrels. But I’d personally like some more body. This may have been in my beer cooler for a while, but certainly no longer than a year. It should still have some more body. (#4892, 1/6/2013)

Thanks for the share! This one has a tart aroma with a light sour cherry aroma and tons of oak. Pour is reddish with the usual, almost non existent head. Taste is lightly tart, tons of oak, and a fruity backbone. Nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Novare Res. Pours a deep cherry red with a touch of pink foam. Aromas are tart cherry, vinous, with some tannic barrel funk. On the palate it has anice big ripe cherry pie back bone that holds firm and lets some barrel funk and warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg sneak through on the mid to late palate. Great mouthfeel even with a low carbonation factor...smooth funky and inviting !

A beer from my homeland - score!!! This was a delicate sour ale. The aroma is a lot of oak and vanilla with traces of cherries. Cherries was obviously the flavor, but indirectly, masked by soft oak and wood. The finish is clean and tart, JUST under the amount that would make you pucker up. Thanks guy for sharing this one.

Bottle from whole foods McLean - holding it up to the light it’s clear ruby red with minimal head. Aroma is funky cherries. Taste is very sour/tart. Palate is thin. Overall, a good example of the style, but not something I would drink in large quantities.
