Throws a near clear dark burgundy body, under a fully diminishing beige bubble head. Initila aroma is nutty, marzipan- like, quickly offset by a scent of sour cherries. Both lactic and acetic acids here. Easy on the palate for a sour. Medium body strenght. Taste is both fruity and malty. More fruity than malty maybe, with light sour-acidic cherries in th lead. Lingering cherries in the aftertaste. [ 1 pint 6. fl.oz botte, kindly provided by Travlr]

Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters showing a deep copper color, with a soft white layer of head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was fruity as grape & cherry, vinous-like, dry & tart, with a touch of non offensive, vinegary & tannic astringency. The taste was full blown sour, vinous notes, and dryness, with a pleasing, palate scrubbing nature. Very nice!

On draught at Bridgetown Beerhouse during the Mississippi Williams Pub Crawl for PDX Beer Week. Muddy dark brown color. Aroma is funky basement, vinegar, and sour cherry. Taste is wonderful, with tart musty yeast, full sour cherry flavor, and lactic notes. Aftertaste is similar to a cherry cider with the great yeast and funk character added.
