Location: 375ml bottle from Sparrow - Downtown, 11/10/15, Labeled as 2013
Aroma: The aroma is wood and funk, cherry, cranberry fruitiness comes through as well
Appearance: It pours a completely clear cranberry juice color with no head or lacing
Flavor: Decent flavor of wood and sourness, fruity too, but more woody than fruity
Palate: Has a solid enough mouthfeel, somewhat fizzy carbonation, slightly dry close
Decent one overall. Nothing too exciting here, just a solid, woody and fruity sour. Not much more to say beyond that.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours deep red with a white pinkish head. The aroma has dark cherries, vinegar, some fruit flesh and is pretty rich for a sour ale. It has a medium / full body that is lush and has soft carbonation. The flavor starts with tart cherries, mild vinegar, lots of rich malt, spice and some earthiness. The finish has lots of cherries. Nice.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Grapefruit colored. No head and no lacing. Strong tart cherry aroma. Even a little strawberry in the aroma. The aroma reminds me of strawberry rhubarb pie. Very tart from the instant it hit the palate. Dry mouthfeel. Finishes tart and dry. Medium bodied. Its almost like drinking a dry red wine. Interesting beer. Beginning to love sours.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Double mountain, hood river, or. Tart cherry aroma with red wine vinous notes. Pours a nice cherry red color with a thin white head with no retention or lacing. Starts with sweet cherry that quickly turns tart. Finishes with extreme cherry tartness with red wine vinous notes. Good, but the end is very tart.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: hazy brownish red, tiny fizzy light tan head quickly vanishing to a smattering of upward prickles. Aroma: sour cherries, leather, hint of molasses, balsamic demi glace. Taste: extremely tart and sour cherries, wet oak, leather, tootsie roll; as it warms, balsamic notes become more sour and pronounced. Finish: alcohol (9.3 according to the bottle) is remarkably well hidden, but thereís a growing astringency to the back end. Notes: Bottle labeled 2014. Incredible sour. 9.3% abv, with no hint of it in the palate? Thatís remarkable. As it warmed to room temperature, it became a little unbalanced toward the vinegar side. At that point, I started mixing it half and half with their Tahoma Kriek, which was one of the best beer decisions Iíve ever made: the result was about the best sour Iíve ever tasted. Bottle from Sarah for Annibeersary 2015, via Craft Beer Kings.
