This is a thick, muddy brown and headless beer. This is a bit sweet w/ loads and loads of tart cherries. I think I even detect a bit almond from the pits like you do in a kriek. That could also be the barrel aging of course, which seems to add an overall nuttiness to the character. This is a nice sour but sort of simple--not that that’s a problem..

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown/ruby with a beige head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, cherries, oak and vanilla and bourbon, some dark malts, and light chocolate notes. Flavor an incredible blend of it all with only the good cherry characteristics. Smooth texture. A great beer.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tannic fruit and sour yeast aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy fruit & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

375 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice tart dark cherry fruitiness, a touch of vinegar, wood, light bourbon notes, some sweetness. Not a big sour, very drinkable, I like that the cherry stands on its own with all the other flavors.

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks decent; a murky copperish brown with very light beige lacing. Smells good; tart, cherry, and oaky. Tastes like it smells with a nice, tart mouthfeel. Good beer!

Bottle (375 ml). Shared by AdamJackson, thanks! Hazy reddish brown with a small beige head. There’s a tons of cherries in the aroma along light tartness, hints of sweetness, wood, berries, acidic notes, some vanilla and bourbon. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately tart with a massive cherry presence along wood, vanilla, vinegar, bourbon and berries. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very good Sour Red. Complex, tasty and enjoyable.

joeneugs (5744) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a muddy brown/red color with a disappearing head. The aroma is intense, mineral sour with cherries, cherry skin and oak. The flavor is intensely sour with a mineral edge, not unlike Cantillons lambics. Nice cherry flavor with mostly oak, but a touch of bourbon alcohol. The finish is mouth puckeringly crisp and tart. This was really great stuff.

12.7 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a dark cherry red / dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out cherries, loads of sour fruits, acidity, vinegar and oak. Flavour brings out a healthy mix of bourbon barrels and tart fruits, with secondary notes of cherries, wood, and vinegar. Not as much acidity as in the Raspberry version thankfully. The bourbon barrels add a lot to this and cut down the intense acidic sourness. Great stuff.
