Butters (3746) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Sampled at the Irish Hanukkah Tasting. Sampled in line with the other ones from the vertical collection box. Hazy reddish pink pour with ring of head. Solid cherry sweet tart character, but not as sour as I expected. It tasted just like the tart red cherries from a cherry pie. Very cherry.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle - Pours electric purple, bubbly ’head’, if you want to call it that. No lacing. No carbonation to see here! Move along! Nose is deep purple cherries, so dark-smelling it approaches grape jelly. Perfumed berries, something like Cherry Blossom Ice Cream, tar, muscat grapes. Flavours of tart berries, oak, cheese, vinegar, just a little kiss of vanilla on the way out. Good!

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottled sample via and shared with Savvy1982. Dark cranberry juice red in colour and virtually flat. Aromas are of sour cherry, tar, and old tree branches. More sour cherry in the mouth, along with notes of fresh mozzarella, a bit of lemon, and a touch of raw wheat sweetness. Tart finishing, but the lack of carbonation really hurt this beer overall.

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
The beer pours dark red color with no bubbles or head. Nice black cherry aroma with a mild funk and sourness. Some straw and grass with a mild lemon/lactic sourness. Light wood to the aroma, but overall sort of subtle. More tartness than you would expect from the nose. Nice cherry flavor. Slight cherry pie flavor with a nice sourness, too. Some grass, lemon, and a slightly musty oak note. Medium in body with little to no carbonation. Quite a nice beer. Unfortunately, it’s just too bad that it’s so expensive.
