Growler at portablepartys. Aroma is apple juice, flavor is pear and apple. Very little funk on this one, pretty simple and boring.

Fruity - really fruity. Pear, apple, a little rotten funk in the nose. Bright and clear but pretty 1 dimensional. Interesting but needs more complexity.

portableparty (1911) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Growler. Pours clear with a soft tight soapy head that leaves a wispy film. Aroma is strong pear apple with a somewhat rotten scent. Taste is tart and a little sour, but shows more apple and pear with a funky rotten finish. palate is thin to medium with a dry finish.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Growler at Jeff’s tasting. Plum skins in the aroma and taste. Some pear in here too. Finishes quite dry.

Serving glass: Poured from growler into Tulip. Appearance: Cloudy orangish-red with initial head that leaves very little behind. Aroma: Mostly sour cherries and cider. Simple but strong aroma. Taste: Sour cherry, cider and lemon, peppery at the end. Palate: Moderate carbonation, relatively light body, very dry and sour finish. Overall: Very nice sour ale overall with a heavy emphasis on cherry. Gets better and better as more is consumed.

Thanks to my Secret Santa Winter 2010 for sending this one my way! Dark, reddish-brown pour, dusky and not much life to the body. Soft musty nose with cherry skins, wet wood, a smidge of beaujolais. Having had the Rode Haring, it’s interesting to note this fairly vinous component of that Flanders. The flavors are decent, fulsome fruit here and a dry finish there, but the mouthfeel is kinda watery and underattenuated, giving the finished product the impression of a starter, not unlike batch 1 of that Captain L beer last year.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Pours a hazy orange/amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of tart fruits and cheeries. Flavor of mixed fruits, light sour, seems like a saison base to me.

Thanks Josh for sharing this! Poured a medium and clear amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of dark fruits, cherries, some woodiness, and citrus. Tastes of cherries, some vinegar, cider, and some woodiness. Sweet with a lighter tart finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Growler pour courtesy of Tampabrew pouring clear copper with off head. The aroma has cherry infused plastic Barbie doll, flavorless cotton candy and molding citrus. The taste is pretty modest in its forcefulness with cherries, saccharin sugar, mild plastic and cherry fruit tartness.
