Healthy sample pour of deeper hazed brown with off white head. Nose is tart an deep malty/fruit. Balsamic and soy like a flemish. Flavor is bright and funky, tart and cherry fruit. Funky and interesting. Horse blanket? Not a bad beer at all, definitely enjoyable but not glass after glass.

JDBaker11058 (1230) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Appearance: cloudy medium brown, with reddish edges, and a creamy light tan head. Aroma: big nose of sour cherry, some old wood, lactic funk, and balsamic vinegar, with a whisper of nuts. Taste: brightly tart, with big notes of sour cherry, balsamic vinegar, a hint of green apple and leather. Finish: dry, slightly chewy and herbal, with a lingering sour vinous tartness. Notes: Very bright and extremely sour, even for the style. On draft at Birch and Barley.

4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Dark reddish brown with off-white head. Aromas of dark fruit, cherries, red wine, oak, funk. Tastes of big oak, dark fruit, cherries, funk, vinegar. Medium body with a dry finish. Low carbonation. Nice sour, I think I prefer this with a year to two on it.

budznsudz (554) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Cloudy brown with a white head. Aroma is funky barnyard straw, fermented cherries, and peach cobbler that sat in the sun all day. Taste is super tart cherry, red wine vinegar, sour candy, and some boot leather on the back end. World class sour.

koleminer20 (553) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2014
On tap at Heidelberg for a Goose Island migration week tap takeover. Dark, dark ruby pour with a thin white head and almost no lacing. The aroma is bursting with sour cherries. There is a distinct sourness with it, but I love the cherry. The flavor is a little lore reserved. Definitely sour, and the Cherry isn't as pronounced. The mouth feel is a little thin, but nicely carbonated. The aftertaste doesn't hang around long but it's sour cherries definitely ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
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!
