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.

BillWyce (1000) - 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.

Sour cherry aroma. Pours murky orange/brown. Sour flavor punches you right in the mouth! Lots of sour cherry flavor, very bubbly.

drpimento (3121) - 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.
