Bottle share at Proof. Rosy pink in color with only the thinnest of collars, and no head present. Aroma is fruity (more raspberry than cherry) and tart/dry yeast. Taste is sour cherry, a slight raspberry, but mostly just sour and not well balanced. Light body, low carbonation and tongue puckering from the tartness.

Ale Alpharetta. Got this in a recent trade and it did not let down. Fantastic in fact. Red/brown pour with minimal off white head. Smell is lots of cherries, sweet barrel, hints of vanilla. Taste is more cherries, lots of sweet vanilla/oak notes, other berries. Mild, smooth, medium tart. Just a simplistically good sour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a hazy orange, with almost no head. The aroma is bitter oranges, with some cherries and vanilla. Very sour, with some fruity sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, and a little clingy. Overall, this is a nice, fruity beer, but lacks the subtlety, balance, and body of a great sour ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Papago.
Complex aroma of sour cherries, white grape, pickle juice, strawberries, and faint oak. Almost clear, dark orange-red under white, lacy wisps. Fresh sour cherry and white grape that starts sour and finishes sweet. No bitterness, clean finish, not quite mouth puckering. Medium light body, moderate carbonation. Would benefit from slightly more sourness and/or carbonation.
