MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Sour cherries, barnyard and red vinegar coincide in this dry and tart creation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy red.
-Carbonation feels natural, which helps the flavor profile greatly.
-The acetic finish may be a tad too much for some, but I like it.
-The mouthfeel is soft, which helps drinkability greatly.

Bottle.

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Brewgrass 2009 I never thought there was much chance of finding this style at a local brew fest. Surprise! Pours slightly hazy, red tinged dark brown with a soapy white head. Tart, fruity aroma. Nice tartness with just enough underlying sweetness to balance. Leaves the palate clean and tingling.

TheBeerGod (5595) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draft at WBF Durham. Best of the festival, IMHO. Multiple samples. We lived at the end of the tent where this was for 30 minutes, easy, drinking this stuff. Maroon bodied. Aroma is sour fruit, wet wood, and light vinegar. Taste is sour cherries, cherry skins, lemon juice, wet oak, and cat urine notes. Mild sweetness in the back. Body si tart and acidic while being light -medium overall. No real carbonation to speak of though it wasn’t really flat. Ends with more sour cherries, light lemon, wet wood, cat urine and berries. Very nice stuff!

Dunt (299) - Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle provided by Matt, poured into a Portsmouth tulip. A hazy dark brown in color with minimal head. There is a moderate amount of sediment on the bottom of my tulip. Nose is incredibly sour, strong vinegar, oak, and some non-descript fruit. Puckeringly sour, a lot of vinegar and oak again. Mouthfeel is acidic, has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. A lot better than I expected. A lot more sour than expected, it was real nice.
