3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from CanIHave4Beers. I ain’t gonna lie. This was a good haul. Pours a leather brown with a nose of funky cherried leather left on the neighbor’s horse’s back. Lots of musty barn air and leather potpourri floating around a raspberry candle. Flavor is a swirl of leathered cherry blanket of cherry candy. Slick on the tongue. Great beer but a bit too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12 oz). Thanks to Yannick for this one! Clear reddish amber with a small off-white head and barely no lacing. Aroma of cherries, cinnamon, oak and other red fruits. Taste is sweet and full of spices (cloves, cinnamon), red fruits (mainly cherries) and wood. Pretty cough syrup like. Mouthfeel is sirupy. Warming spices. Not much sourness in this beer. The "cough syrup" aspect of this beer is almost cloying which affect drinkability. This is still a good beer though. The "warming" aspect of this make this one a good winter beer despite the low abv.

Bottle generously given as an extra by preisj
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

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Shared with multiple others. Pours a thin, tiny bubbled white head over a reddish amber (SRM 18) clear body.....nose is sour cherry, light sherry, vinous tones.....taste is sour cherry, light vanilla, hints of cinnamon, vinous overtones......mouth feel medium, very slightly astringent, carbonation high, making a froathy sensation. This is a rerlatively light sour, with interesting aromas and flavors, but not a complex or big as some others. I would have liked more fruit, sourness and overall depth. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a red amber with a small pinkish white head. Aroma is all cherries, hint of sour. Taste is again all fresh sweet cherries, cherry pie, with quite a bit of spice, only the slightest hint of tart. A bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Really not a sour/wild ale but still very enjoyable.
