2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep black with a thin offwhite head. Nose is tart cherries and black currents with a whiff of yoghurt. Taste is quite tart upfront with cherry notes and dark toasted Malts coming through before a sharp sour finish. Mouth feel quite thin with low carbonation. Solid beer but not amazing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 330ml bottle on 15/5/2016 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a dark, dark red/brown with a smallish head. Has a quite a tart cherry aroma. Flavour wise, thereís lots of cherry, with lots of sour notes, with a good dash of oak. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Itís rare that a sour beer thrills me, and this one doesnít. Doesnít really work for me on any level.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle from Slowbeer.
Very deep slightly ruby coloured thing, off-white ring persists.
Vinous nose - black fruits - blackcurrant, black plum skin, prune, blueberry; somewhat Malbec-like. Touch of funky yoghurt & horse as it warms.
Dry sort of a body, once again vinous, mild acidity, slightly acetic, slightly tannic, slightly ropey, slightly carbonated.
A curious amalgam of flavours on the body - black plum skin, charred wood, black pepper, natural yoghurt, balsamic, horse blanket, nuts & toast, blackberry, leafy ropey Pedio character lingers with some coarse tannin.
Was actually expecting something a bit more sour - considering its constituents - but itís quite well balanced yet funky as hell.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black with brown tinge, no head or lacing. Complex aromas of lemon juice, Brett, oak, roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Medium level of lemon juice sourness, Brett, oak, leading to some cherry sweetness, a relatively light middle and a roasted malt and coffee tinged finish. Best cold as it becomes a bit boozy when it comes to room temp. Great beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 Iíve read for any product. Itís 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. wasnít 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
