3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at beer study. Cloudy, murky, layered reddish orange with a light ring of lace. Nose shows some tart cherries but also some light buttered popcorn. Flavor is light bile, tart cherry, cherry skins, light butter. Supposedly this has improved a bit since the original keg was tapped. Okay, but still needs work.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This poured an orangish red color with no head. The aroma contains tons of cherries and vinegar with a hint of citrus and funk. The flavor is really sour and tart with more cherries and vinegar flavors. The aftertaste is very sour as well. Overall I really enjoyed this one.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Beer Study. Pours a rich and cloudy ruby red with a thin head. Nose shows diacetyl/feet. Pedio bomb... Bright cherry notes on the edge of the nose and flavor. Nice immediate front of mouth acidity followed by an intensely funky/feet character. Lots of ’buttered popcorn’ Jelly Belly flavor and dirty socks. Some kind of bacteria gone wrong.
