Bottle from a trade. Dark red colour, thin layer of foam. Aroma of sour fruit, cherries, vinegar and red wine. Oak and fruit. Light sweet, tart finish. Very well balanced.

I had the 2008 version. It was so very good, so complex so difficult to describe. It was a really unique taste. I kept to go back to the store to buy more of them.

Pours gorgeous reddish brown. Aroma is sour cherries and tons of oakiness. Taste is massive cherries and oak and tannins. Really nice dry finish with lots of Cherry skins. This is really something special, and the high ABV is very discreet

Deep woody cherry aroma. Beautiful brown with a slight reddish. You can see through it, it has a light but lasting head. Rich tart cherry with oak undertones. Thick mouthfeel smooth coats your mouth.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pour at the Portland brew pub. Pours red with a quick fading fizz head. Sour fruit, wood, and wild yeast aroma as well as flavor. Wild yeast particularly stands out, though the sour fruit will linger for a while. Shocked at the ABV here. Drinks really easy, and the tartness isn’t too intense. Finishes a little wine like as well. Bonus points for being unique. This one isn’t like most sours. Great stuff.
