4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle corked and caged, poured a light reddish color, almost a hazy pink. Aromas of soft raspberries, cherries and light funk. Flavors are the same with some oak added to it. Not overly sweet, not overly dry, nice mix of the fruit and sourness, great beer overall.

Pours a semi clear rose copper with very little white head. Aroma is a mix of raspberries, dried cherry and oak. Flavor is very tart, unsweetened dried cherries, oak and undertones of dark chocolate actually. Body is light with very active carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a rose water amber hue with a thin white active head. Nose with subtle barnyard, blue cheese, and unripe berries. Champagne, lively bubbling burst on the tongue carries notes of cranberry, dry champagne, and a mossy oak finish. A faint hint of soap suds at the end.

12oz bottle shared in the DLD line. A fruity sour that seemed really well balanced. You could still pick out the cherries. The fruit was not dominated by the funk. Pleasant.

Huge thanks to deftim13! Pours a super hazy fruit punch with zero carbonation. Funky/tangy raspberry sourness in the nose. Flavor starts a tart, lactic raspberry and ends sour cherry pie filling. Lightly dry and somewhat bitter/acidic. Feels relatively thin. I think that lack of carbonation hurt this one, in my opinion, both in the flavor promotion and palate. Nonetheless, enjoyable.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear reddish brown with a tiny pink head and a strange fruity aroma. There is a delicate cherry flavor with a pleasantly sour finish. A very nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased at the Four Firkins in St Louis Park, Minnesota. 11-6384 is marked on the label, not sure if this is meaningful. The pour is mostly clear golden ruby with a fizzy noisy white head that starts big (3 inches) then falls really fast. The aroma is brightly acidic cherry, toasted oak, more tannins from cherry skin and then rich black cherry fruit. There is a nice citrus lemon character as well. The taste starts tart, acidic sour cherry, then the vanilla wood oak, then a touch of toasty malt and finishes with more black cherry tartness. Clean and crisp. The palate is light to medium bodied, sparkly champagne like carbonation, and a tart crisp finish. Not over the top sour, but nicely bright and tart. Really easy drinking.

Pours a murky brown swamp water look into a tulip glass with minimal head, yes its ugly. Aroma is vanilla oak, cherries, and more spicy wood aromas. Taste is lightly funky and moderate to lightly tart with heavy cherry flavors and great barrel notes. GREAT!
