Dfonorow (1512) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pour is pinkish in color with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma is very heavy on the cherry with a semi-tart linger. Flavor is sweet, tart, and thin. Bland and strange, not good.

emacgee (4046) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2013
Tasted as Sour Cherry Berliner Weisse at Sams Blue Light. Cloudy reddish hue with a thin white head. Sour cherry nose with a light sweetness. Hint of funky/earthy notes. Tart flavor with a touch of pie cherry and a hint of spice. Sessionable tartness and light/crisp body.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Growler. Pours ruddy red and brown. Aromas of sweet and slightly tart cherry pie filling, with some brown sugar and crust. The flavor follows suit closely, with sweet, not overly tart cherry, and some bitterness. Drinkable, but a tad thin. Ok. [1129]

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 27, 2013
On tap. Pours with a clear pinkish-golden hued body with minimal head. Aromas are grainy, wheat, cranberry, red wine (cheap), apple cider, lightly lactic and malic cherries. Flavors are of lactic acid, dry, grainy, artificial cherry. Bland. Lively bubbles, dry and a bit vinous.

Huhzubendah (2615) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On draft at the brewpub in Frederick, MD. The beer appears a light shade of ruby red with a small, pink head. The nose brings a mild lactic presence along with, you guessed it folks, sour cherries. Lightly tart, with a nice showing from the cherries. A creamy mouthfeel and mildly acetic in the finish. A touch of funk in there as well. A bit unrefined, but this beer has potential. I found this to be rather bland, though not bad a first attempt in this genre. Cheers to Flying Dog for branching out. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-07-2012

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2012
I love the idea of this beer, and the aroma and appearance are truly enticing. Unfortunately the cherry comes off very sugary, giving it an almost medicinal quality.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours and orange-ish red color with a light pink head. Definite cherry on the nose, but sort of sweet and sugary. A bit on the candy/pie side of things. A bit of straw and light to moderate tartness. The nose is a touch metallic as well. The flavor is kind of bland and watery. Some cherry, notes of grape skin, and mild grass and straw. A hint of tartness, some cherry pie, and buttery pie crust. Really weird.

rosenbergh (7011) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Draught at the Beer Table, Brooklyn, NY.
Cloudy light red colour with tiny white head. Mild aroma of red berries. Flavour is also quite mild with fresh red berry juice and mild hints of cherry. It’s not sour but it’s not sweet either (which is good). Surprisingly mild flavour. Easy-to-drink and not that rewarding. Some maltiness on the back.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy red color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of cherries and lightly tart malts. The taste is citrus, red wine, cherries. Lightly tart. Thin, watery and bland. Very disappointing.

BrewBoxer (2059) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Draft. Ruby red color. Not really a sour IMO. Reminds me of a berliner weisse with a splash of grenedine. Decent. Nice for the summer time
