3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a nice red-orange with light, fizzy head. Aroma of fermented fruit and wood-earthy flavors. Taste is sour and tart with some sweetness from the fruit. Overall easy to drink and smooth even with the sour notes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep crystal clear reddish brown color with a good sized off white head that quickly dissipates to a ring on the top. Smells of light caramel and brown sugar with a cherry fruity tartness underneath. The flavor is mildly tart with a hint of funk, cherries and bits of lemons. There’s a solid base of sweet and brown sugar that provides a great balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart lightly tongue piercing mouthfeel. This one leans a bit towards the sweet side of sour ale, but I think its a really well made beer, I enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012. Translucent red body, no head. Aroma is basically absent. Fruity, mildly tart, refreshing, and highly drinkable. I could session the hell out of this.

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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Daknole. Poured in to a goblet. Deep ruby brown with a slighty off-white head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma is a bit earthy, a bit juicy. hints of the tart and sweetness. Taste is vanilla and cherries. A slight bit of oak. Wow, i really like this. Reminiscent of the Wisconsin Red but a lot less of a cough medicine cherry.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to cbfobes. Pours a Ruby coloredwith a thin white head of foam. The aroma, as it warms get lots of cherry and sour notes. Starts as sour Graham crackers. Thankfully that faded. Taste starts on the sweet end, but as it warms, the sourness kicks in. Lighter bodied.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012bottle courtesy of Atom Thanks dude, its tough to give this a fair rate, as the nose is somewhat benign, it smells like a wild ale, hints of cherry and oak but there is that tart acidity that stings the nostrils. taste is what counts in my book and its awesome, the flavor of oak and cherry just melds so well, it tastes great.
