Pours muddy deep red. Nose is dark caramels, sweet malts, pleasant cherry fruits, tart cherries, woody notes and light vanilla. Flavor is mild tartness mild funk, sweet and lightly tart cherries and some lactic qualities. Light body. mild carbonation. Really a nice easy drinking beer but could be much more sour.

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 21, 2016
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is cherry, oak, VERY FUNKY. Taste is tart cherries, vinegar burn, some hefty funk. Chewable funk and oak, tannins and fruit skins, even some nuttiness on the finish. Very much in the Flanders / Brown / Red / Oud Bruin style of sours with loads of funky horse hooves (especially as it warms). Not for the faint of heart.

Draft 7 oz pour at The Collective. I failed to get this beer on two previous attempts, one being way out of my control. Glad I at least found it eventually. Copper reddish pour with a foam halo head. Cherry juice particular aroma. Flavor is cherry pie filling throughout, with the subtle polish remover reminding booziness that accompanies a lot of these sour reds. How this isn’t listed as a sour red/brown surprises me, but with a big beer like this, I don’t ask many questions. A lingering tart, with hints of vinegar. A sour that gets better as it warms. Really brings out the sour cherry over any other flavors involved. Enjoyed the hell out of this as it sat. Unsure at first though. As an overall, a noteworthy, well made, unique sour. Quite.delicious.

BillWyce (1015) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2016
9/2015 brewing, per the label. Pours hazy red-amber with just a trace of a tan head. Sour aroma from the yeast, mixed with notes of cherry and wood. Medium body, a bit oily. Tart, dry finish. Wine-like tartness with notes of wood and tart cherry underneath. A bite of sourness from the yeast at the back.

Slightly cloudy, red-brown. Bit of tan head, not much. Strong dark cherries, some slight funk. Some vanilla or molasses. Quite tart, sweeter finish. Heavier body, extremely long. Fairly chewy, some oiliness. Excellent.

drpimento (3181) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Kind of surprised at this as it’s not nearly as enjoyable as I thought it would be. It was kept chilled at cellar temps since it went into storage. Aroma is the best part with strong tart cherry, yeast, oak. Flavor is where it’s weak - tart cherry, oak, yeast, and not much depth. Strong carbonation. Ok finish.
