3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Poured hazy reddish-brown color with a large foam head that dissipates slowly. Cherries and vanilla dominate the aroma. Flavor has cherries, vanilla, and minimal sourness. Would have liked more acidity, but it is still a pretty good tasting beer. Pretty solid fruit beer, but was hoping for more a more sharp sourness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. 2010 version. Pours a hazy murky orange brown color. Head dissipates rapidly. Light bodied. Initially light malt fades into sour cherries and vanilla bean. Just a little bit of fizzy funk. Trying to clear out some beers sitting in the cellar, this is a very pleasant surprise.

Poured into hill farmstead stemware, clean into the glass with no head or lacing. Smell of cherry and oak, taste follows the same notes while packing a sour pucker after taste. Very fruit juice like reminds me serendipity

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours reddish amber. Smell is tart with lots of cherry. Taste cherry and sweet and very tart up front, but gets very complex as you drink. It finishes with very subtle wisps of smokiness. Great fizzy feel. Very, very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really interesting beer with flavors of apple juice, cherry, and cinnamon. It has a nice tart and sweet flavor, but is a bit reminiscent of sparkling cider.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Wow, this is one strange, interesting, beer. Bright, reddish-brown color with very little head that diminishes quickly. Highly carbonated, sour cherry flavor with notes of oak barrel and smoke. Not something that you would drink regularly, but this might go very well with something chocolate flavored.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Holy hell is this good. Fell in love with Cran-bic, but I might just like this bettery. Poured dark brown with a red hue. Bready sour cherry aroma. Has that light "musty" lambic note. Taste is huge cherry, with hints of vanilla and caramel. Good sour bite, but balanced well by the sweet bread yeast taste. Amazing!
