2012 batch #1. From a trade with arminjewell-thanks, man! Pretty cranberry juice brown. Nice carbonation. Wet wood, vinious, funky nose. Tart, puckering...feel it on your teeth, share with a friend-it’s a bit fatiguing. Some dry red raspberry flavors.

Bottle pour. Very deep dark red color with a light white head. Very sharp aroma, harsh on the nose. Bitter hoppy taste, more than I expected considering it's a sour. Not very oaky. Overall and okay sour.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours reddish amber, with thin head. More carbonated than expected, but in a good way. Nose is sour cherries, with grape juice, plum and raisin. Flavor is awesome, I could drink this all night. Sour tart cherries and grape juice with well balanced oakyness. The finish sits on your tongue for hours making your mouth water for more of that tart cherry flavor..
