douglas88 (5840) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 23, 2013
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.

jackl (4385) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2013
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.

vtafro (3051) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2013
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.

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle at Grote Dorst. Red amber colour, no head. Aroma is bit poopy, light sourness, not much cherry. Taste is good, initial sourness, cherry goodness. Finish more cherry.

magsinva (876) - Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle from hop city bought about 8 months ago - aroma is sour cherries. The dark ruby brew tastes sour with a tart bite, finishes like watery syrup. Overall, solid.

KyotoLefty (6186) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle at the Grote Dorst. Deep crimson color, flat. Tart cherry nose, yogurt, leather, blenket. Quite tart flavor though not overwhelmingly sour. Lovely cherry, stones, almond, great nutty flavor, some yogurt. Nice stuff.

high_on_hops (590) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
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.

Lukaduke (2067) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 10, 2013
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.

rbrazell (1593) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle at Sourfest. Hazy pinkish pour with a diminishing head. Hay, funky sour cherry aroma. Subdued carbonation, mellow smooth flavor with sour tart cherries, yeast funk and mustiness. Easy drinker.
