3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance fuses a hazy auburn color with a large off-white head that fades slowly to a large ring on top of the brew. The aroma blends the scents of sour cherries with roasted malts and cloves; furthermore, the taste is quite sour and mildly sweet. The palate combines a long sour finish, a nearly flat carbonation, thin texture, and a medium body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Dexters. Deep brown-black, with a steady thick beige head. Soem kind of alien aroma, bourbon, cognac, licorice, sour fruit. An odd beer, I certainly get a sour taste, Oud Bruin-like. Definitely a WTF kind of beer, at this point a big dark sour. OK.

Sour cherry red ale on aroma. Sweet and sour at the same time on palate. Confusing, intriguing, excellent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Served a brown red color with just a thin ring of head, which leaves a touch of lace behind as it fades.
S - Aroma is full of sour cherries with some oak and bourbon. There is a bit of caramel malt and some nuttiness as well.
T - Starts off with some sweet and lightly sour cherries with some Bourbon and oak flavor. Through the middle, some sweet caramel and nutty flavors come through with a bit of funky yeast character and some vanilla. The finish is a mix of lingering tart cherry sourness with some oak, bourbon, and booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and tart finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good mix of flavors that really blended together nicely with the barrel characteristics.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at Colicchio & Sons Tap Room, 1/17/12
Aroma: It has a dry, somewhat wine-like, slightly sour nose, with a little wood and dark fruit
Appearance: This one poured a brown color with a small, lasting beige head and light lacing
Flavor: It has some Belgian yeast, a little funk, hints of wood, and some raisin/dark fruity flavors
Palate: The body is on the medium side, and though it feels a bit muddled, it drinks alright
I wasn’t particularly impressed by this one. I still found it to be decent, but mostly, I thought it was a bit too confused, and it just didn’t seem to have any real direction. I wouldn’t rush back.
