UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Re-rate, batch #3. Tap at the brewery. Clear dark ruby brown with a thin beige head that lasts on the sides. Aromas of sour apple, Bing cherries, funk, wood, and light spice. Flavor is sour apple and cherry front with some funk, wood and just a hint of chocolate underneath. Light to medium bodied, dry finish with a lingering sour apple/cherry.

On tap at Crooked Stave. Pours a dark, blood, red. Nice light head that slowy disappears. Aroma of funk, cherries, plums, grapes, and acid. Very balanced sour, and tart, but not mouthpuckering. Smooth. No vinegar or astringent flavor. Very, very, very good.

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..

Excellent! An oak vinegar aroma is inviting. The taste is sour cherry with hints of Apple and rich sweet vinegar. The finish is a lasting sour with just a hint of bitterness. With low carbonation, this beer has a thin but deep sour fruit flavor that is really good. Overall, this is just an excellent showing.

Small snifter at the brewery. Pours deep, dark red. Aroma is dark cherry, the most tasteful bourbon barrel, malt vinegar and something almost like chocolate, perhaps from the barrel melding with the fruity notes. Itís puckering in the flavor, no doubt powerfully sour. Rich notes of black cherry, perfect bourbon flavors and strong vinaigrette complexity. Honestly one of the best sours Iíve had in a while.

Draft at the Source. Burgundy pour with a thin tan head. Red wine aroma with an oak aged hint. Light sourness with a burgundy hit. Amazing balance. Such a great sour.

On tap at brewery, poured a ruby brown hue w/ big fizzy head diminishing to a ring w broken lacing. Mod to bold wine aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold sour finish. Taste is a deep and complex Burgandy and oak supported by the yeast. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
