From bottle, pours red, funky in both aroma and taste and has a lot going on. A bit of cherry in there with the tartness and wine-like qualities. I bought this out of interest after reading one of the funniest commercial deScriptions I’ve read for any product. It’s too bad this is no longer listed here. Fears of a primate uprising?

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.

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.

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.
