Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a mélange of cherries, caramel, light horse blanket funk and a mildly spicy phenol. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. Moderately sour and mildly malty – tart cherries, caramel and excellent, clean acidity. Finishes tart, fruity and a touch dry. Bottle courtesy of guyinchigago!

11/11/11. Hazy brown/red pour with a small khaki head that fades fast and laces a teensy bit. Big oak aromas - wood and vanilla, as well as a touch of alcohol, tart fruitiness, acid, and a bit of funk. Sweet fruity flavor at first that shows wood, vanilla, and cream, and transitions to tart cherries, other berries, and lingering dry chalkiness. Very nice!

Bottle. Had this one back to back with the Lolita (this first) and the room generally agreed this one was the winner although I liked them both a lot. Pours dark brown with a sticky white small head. Lactic sourness, with the dark fruit and malt in good balance. Nice sourness in the flavor, starts with oak and gets funky as it goes over the tongue, pleasing carbonation.

foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle at Senate. Pours and murky dark red/brown with a minimal bubbly white head. Aroma of vinegar with tart cherries, oak, and a hint of Belgian yeast funk earthiness. Subtle taste of tart cherries with pronounced vinegar, light sweetness, and a moderate oak finish. Not overtly sour or tart. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel of soft carbonation. Expected a bit more complexity but this a great American Sour.

Bottle. Pour is clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma is light tart cherry, light vanilla, light caramel malt, and a hint of wood. Flavor is tart cherry up front with a hint of chocolate covered cherries in the finish. Also notes of vanilla cherry that linger on the palate for quite a while. Wonderful.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Sampled at the Clybourn location. Garnet, tangerine, and chestnut all find their way to the glass along with a small eggshell head. Acidic nose with vinegar, citrus, and tart cherry skins. Matching flavor with lots of pucker...love it! Just can’t beat trying this at the brewery. Medium mouthfeel. Great experience!
