3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle given to me by my brother. Thanks bro! It pours a dark pink color with a pink head. Itís Kriek-y looking. The aroma is fruity with cherries, which is the dominant character. It is also tart with almost a sense of cherry dessert. The taste has some cherries with a light bit of tartness. Itís really a subdued taste for an American sour. That might be a good thing as it does not have much acidity which seems to be the norm for American sours. This would be a good introduction beer for the style though I canít help but think that this is sorely missing something.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pink foam on top of a bright red liquid. Funky aroma with a bit of oak. Flavor has a bit of a malt background with pretty strong tartness. Fruity sweetness present in the finish. Pretty good, but I think I would have preferred it as a full blown lambic

Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Bright ruby body with a foamy pink-tinged crown. Aroma and flavour are tart cherries, nice enough, but missing greater depth of spice and sour for me. Just okay.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at RBAG 2013. Red pour, pretty clear looking, the cap recedes quickly leaving a thin ring of pinkish foam. Very light lambic/sour notes in teh nose, some cherry. Taste has tart cherries, quite dry and light, fades out quickly leaving only a trace of sourness. Overall, drinkable, but too light an example.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into wine glass. Pours a very clear red with a moderate light pink head. Aroma is sour and cherry, slight vinegar. Light sour and cherry flavor up front. Not too strong on the sour front. Mellow cherry flavor. Lightly carbonated with a clean finish. I like more of a sour punch but still a very good fruit beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear red with medium pink head. Little lacing, light body, low carbonation, and light tart cherry aroma. Taste is tart cherry. A richer cherry taste would have been better for me. For $22 a bomber I will pass on this every time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from 2013. Pour looks like a big glass of red kool-aid with pink head. Smells slightly tart, mostly like cherry. Taste is strong cherry, slight sourness, some soapy character. Kind of interesting, great summer night beer.
