Not overly sour or tart, but just plain delicious. Pretty fruity and a little sweet, but a very dry finish. A sour I could drink again and again and again... love this beer. Have to stock up any time I can and seems to age well.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Shared at the Alpha Brewery tap room, thank you Derrick! Deep reddish amber copper colour with sudsy beige foam and fine Belgian lace. Husky grains, hint of caramel and toffee, strong chocolate notes, nutty, subtle hop bitterness and black pepper notes. Intense dark cherry impression, adding yet more complexity. Loads of cool yeast esters and phenols. Beneficial hardwood traits. Clearly aged but not excessively oxidized. Tart, tangy, bewilderingly delicious.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours ruby, off white head with lacing. Nose has complex acidity reminiscent of cherry or plum sauce reduction and mild, almost sweet, notes of acetic acid, some bright earthiness as well. Flavor is very nicely balanced, quite dry, starts with lightly sweet cherry-pie like notes, middle is solid barley backbone, fresh and bready, ends with a puckingly tart finish. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a murky amber body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up sourness, a nice spicy malt sweetened woodiness, some cherry juice and a tad earthy agedness. The taste has mild puckering notes, a bit of sour cherry and then modestly sweet cherry juice. To midway a woody sort of spicy wood note just peaks up over the other flavors. Into the finish it tries to have a moderate sour yet sweetened vinegar sensation but instead it just lightly murmurs away off in the background.

Bottle thanks to my wife. Garnet with a tan head. Tannins, cherries and dark red fruits. Tart and slightly funky in the best way. Outstanding.
