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.

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.

From the bottle, pours a clear crimson with an ok white head. Thick aroma with notes of white grapes and fruity wine, sweet malts. Light on the tongue at first but quickly thickens and sours. Rather fruity, pretty good, but not a candidate for a multi-beer evening. Good stuff.

Same bottle as pictured. Poured dark reddish brown with little head. Aroma was really funky, smelled different than other sours. Taste was mostly sour and funk but was very straightforward and not overpowering. Really well done in my opinion.

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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very complex malty, tart, fruity aroma. Lots of vanilla, sweet malts and sour cherries, rich. Pours a murky brown with a moderate fizzy off-white head, fairly good retention, spotty lacing. The first thing that strikes me in the flavor is rich, smooth vanilla and cherries, both sour and sweet. Very nice balance between the tart, complex sour component and rich malty notes. Earthy, some tobacco, sweet malt and cherry notes fade into a mellow, smooth, dry finish. Medium body, very smooth, moderate carbonation. Excellent brew, just the right balance of sour, fruit, and rich malts, well done.

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.

Slightly metallic aroma. Refreshing, delicious, definitely sour and quite fruity. Very interesting!

Bottle drank in our room at the Pfister, Milwaukee. (Great party Simon. Congrats!) Medium brown color with a tan head. Softly sour aroma with a bit of malt and dark cherry in the background. Flavor is tart and sustained by a bit of caramel and fresh cherry notes.

Hazy reddish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is oak and cherry. Taste is cherry and oak, with vinegar and lactic tartness. Oily texture.
