3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep burgundy with a couple of fingers of dark pink frothy head. No doubt about it, this is one beautiful beer! Nose is strangely subdued, held back. Some cherry, oak wood, red grapes, basement aromas. Taste is big cherry sour with clear bretta, tasty but not very balanced. Body is light and refreshing with average carbonation.

bottle split with Adnielsen. Pours like foamy grape juice. Aroma is funky, sweet, vinuous. Definitely smells like a sweet wine. Taste is dry, tart, vinuous. Not great...mostly just overly sweet. Canít get overt the wine aroma. Overall not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Pours a very deep reddish purple appearance with a dark pink head. The aroma has a really rich dark berry nose to it. I suppose itís a bit like black cherry dessert bars. Soft mouth feel. Rich flavor thatís quite tart. Really juicy, black pie cherries. Tart finish. The richness of the black cherries is pretty amazing even if Iím not a crazy fan of the brew. Interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle purchased at Daveís Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Pours a deep red with a fizzy pink head that quickly dissipates. Very pleasant aroma that is fulled with sour cherry along with some oakiness lurking in the background. The flavor is lovely with ample sour cherry, bright and tart, again with some background oak and just a bit of vanilla. Tart and bright on the palate. Quite enjoyable.

Pour from a bottle is a nice opaque reddish black with a red head. The aroma is a subtle sweetness. When it hits your tongue you immediately taste the sweet cherries and then goes into the sour with a slight oak flavor. Leaves a tart after taste.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark red wine color with a little bit of white head around the rim. Smells of sour cherry, red wine, vanilla, honey. Taste is a medium cherry sour, some vanilla, red wine flavors, dry wine finish, a little bit of grape juice taste. A tiny bit of hop bitter at the end. Refreshing and tolerable sourness that has enough sweetness and a dry finish.

2013 bottle. Pours a deep cranberry red with a fizzy cranberry pink head. Aroma is cherry with a slight buttery/waxey smell that I think may be from the oak. Taste is tart/sour pie cherry with a little vanilla. Slightly sweet and a dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught 2012 ed. @ Mikropolis. Pours opaque dark red with a small pink head. Aroma is very fruity, almond, cherries, cherry-stones, oak and hints of brett. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and light tart. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes dense cherry fruity, dry and almond bitter. Iíd prefer this to be tarter to achieve freshness and greater drinkability. Aging might correct this.. Time will tell.
