3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Too expensive corked and caged small bottle. Pours a deep dark reddish color with almost no head. A big very sour woody and fruity nose. Sour cherry, some sweeter pie cherries as well, wood, sawdust, lacto. Really is janus faced being super sweet and very sour. Good brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Expensive bottle from Wine Warehouse, C’ville. The pour’s still deep red. No head at all. The nose is very rich cherry, dirt. Nice earthy sweetness. Moderately tart. Yeasty funk. The taste is moderately tart, sour. Moderate lactic funk. Meaty cherry sweetness. Light body, hardly any carbonation whatsoever. Overall, a touch more carb would liven this up. Still, pretty tasty stuff.

Bottle. Dark ruby pour with white lacing. Raspberry and cherry tart fruit aromas. Cherry flavor has become muted, light acetic tones. This is lacking some carbonation as well, but it could be very good.

Pours a nice burgundy color with no head. It has a strong funky, dusty, and earthy aroma with some cherry in the background. The flavor is sour cherries throughout, with a slight sweetness in the middle that turns into a long, sour finish over a flat, medium body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich ruby red color with no visible head. The nose is very interesting, I get a good dose of spicy charcuterie, cherry pie and some funky basement must. The palate is way more cherry than the nose lead me to believe. Round full body with smooth cherry pie, musty barrel notes and a long dry cherry pie finish.
