Pungent and black as night on the pour. Cherries do come through, but alas not so much to dissuade a rooster with boobs.

Holy shit - a lot going on - smells like wine, tastes like... Nothing I know - full of interest, great sour plum and a heavy lick of oak - inspired.

Bottle from swanbourne cellars. Funky nose with red fruit and a bit of chocolate and coffee. Suprisingly light in the mouth with lovely sourness, fruit and dark choc. wasn’t planned but wife handed me a cherry ripe straight after. Good beer from the moondog boys.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque sticky black with a ruby tinge. Beige head that rises slowly. Cherry sweet aroma with the distinctive sources. A slight dark malt taste, but the dominating flavour here is the sour cherries that take away from the bitterness. Quite nice, but not my favorite moon dog

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from mane liquor.
aroma is ripe plums, of course cherry and that funky sour stench we all love. The cherries themselves seem to bring a form of bitterness which is really prominent when it first touches those little taste bud fuckers on your tongue. That bitterness is accentuated by slight hints of coffee and to a lesser extent; leather. It’s an excellent sour, and while I’m definitely not experienced in such beers...it’s definitely something i’d buy again.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got a great sour aroma. Taste has some hazelnut, red cherries and plum. Light in middle before a tart finish. Got a lot going on.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours a n opaque black, with a minimal light beige head, which fades quickly and leaves no lacing. Prune and malt sweetness mix with a good level of sourness to create the aroma. Lemon juice tartness up front softens into a more rounded sourness as the plum flavour comes in. The finish has a nice sweet and sour feel to it. A decent sour ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, plums, cherries and other dark fruit, yeast with some nuts and woody notes. Taste is pretty tart and yeasty. I really love Moon Dog’s adventurous spirit but I feel this one missed the mark a little.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours inky black with a little crop of beige head. Quite effervescent with bubbles constantly surfacing. Nose is quite tart with slight coffee and a bit of a dank horseblanket type note. Flavor matches the nose in terms of sourness. Very lemony acid character. I get a little bit of the plummy tannins, some vanilla, and a definite dose of roasted coffee on the finish with lingers along with a bit of acidity. Body is quite light, slightly fizzy. Pretty tasty, and certainly different.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Initially I was not into it but it grew on me. Big sour fruit aroma which took some getting used to, the cherries take away from the bitterness, this is not my favourite style of beer.
