DuffMan (6741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and others. Hazy dirty reddish brown with a generous lasting head. The aroma is softly funky and fruity. The palate is rather mellow all around, but very pleasant nonetheless. Ripe cherry, woody funk, earthy undertones. The finish is very tart, mildly sour. Not a hint of the ABV. Pleasant and approachable.

Nice tartness with some cherry flavor. Not overwhelmingly cherry but a nice level. Some vanilla and a little nuttiness. Thin body. Vanilla lingers some in the finish though somewhat subtlety.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 18, 2014
3 ounce sample at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma is acetic and acidic. Fairly fruity with light cherry. Nice and funky. Good aroma. Moderately hazy ruddy-amber body with a small, quickly dissipating light tan head. Starts tart, fruity, and nicely sour. Becomes pretty dry, harsh and bitter in the middle. Acidic, too. Light sweetness follows. This has potential, but it kind of loses steam at the end and becomes just sort of bland.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Taster at DBS. Light brown color with a red hue. Cherry flavored of course, decent beer, but not quite as balanced as I thought it should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle pour at DBS. Aroma is light cherry funk. Flavor is muted cherry on the front end with a full cherry background. Coats the back of the throat and sits, hardly acetic. Good beer.

ericdevin (768) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a reddish purple, little to no off white head. Slight stone fruit nose, jammy and funky. Body big and lively not overly tart. Subtle and lovely.

JohnnyJ (4358) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Semi hazy light brown/red with an off white head. Musty bread, oak, light cherry, mild sourness, and a bit a funk. A nice drinkable sour, not too complex, and the body is rather light.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Smells acidic tart Earthy cherry sour. Glowing maroon color with lively pink head. Earthy cherry sour taste a little dirt flavor in there. Palte fades slowy but moist and refreshing,
