Beerathon (1286) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Dark cherry fruit in the nose and flavor. A bit of a pucker factor, but more tart than sour. Nice oak notes. The wine of beers.

Thanks to Kraddel. 650 ml. bottle split. 2012 Vintage. 31/07/2012 bottling date. 1151 (bottle nr. ?) Dark brown, tanned bubbles only on the side. Nose is watery chocolate, dark cherries (they used sour ones but this smells & tastes like sweet cherries to me), light pie, bread & Christmas spices. Taste is watery sweet cherries, Christmas spices, bread, dough, fruity, brett is faint, light oxidation, berries, faint wine, very light brett, barely any sourness. Near flat & tad watery. Drinks okay but isnít very impressive or worth the effort, this is a 99+ American Sour? I have some pretty disappointing American sours recently with high scores.

keanex (1503) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2014
On tap.
Appearance: Brown body with a short tan head.
Aroma: Incredible aroma, big with cherry and red wine vinegar, hints of caramel.
Taste: Not as sour as the aroma indicates, but sour cherry is big with red wine vinegar through. Hints of tannins.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Great beer, I could drink way too much of this. Good amount of sour with a complex backing.

Dogbrick (8682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Cloudy ruby-brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of cherries, funky yeast and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of sour cherry, vinous oak and funky yeast. The finish is moderately sour with a tart cherry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
