if I had stopped at appearance and aroma, this would’ve been the highest rated beer ever. Great dark Rich color and excellent lacing. Smells deliciously of cherry. Tastes like pure cherry extract, which is not good in a beer.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Awful cherry tylenol aroma. Extremely sweet, bad candy like taste. Overall really poor example of a sour style beer. One of the worst beers Ive ever tried.

On tap at The Brass Tap, poured a reddish color with aromas of cherries, light tartness, some dark fruit and a touch of oak. Flavors follow suit with some sweetness to begin and finished with a light wet oak flavor, solid overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Color is ruby red with white head. Aroma is cherries and sweetness. Taste is cherries and other dark fruit. No real tartness to speak of. Just ok.

Smell is if sweet dark cherries. Maybe a slight smell of sour, but cherry dominates. Taste is what would expect from the aroma. No sour flavors at all. All cherry. Maybe some sugars fermented out, but still pretty sweet. Expected some sour in this to balance the sweet. Tasty, but as a cherry ale, but not as a sour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Bottle: deep crimson, blood & ruby red with a cherry cola tinted head that fizzles out quickly & settles as a thin layer of foam on top. Aroma is sweet, candied cherries, sugar, cherry juice, very faint tartness, slight dry oak in the back-end. Taste is sweet cherries, heavy oak, musky dryness, & some astringent red grape skins in the back end. Mild tannic & vinous notes throughout. More sweet & dry, not much tartness at all. Grows sweeter with time; faint oak-y vanilla & sweet cherry finish. Not bad, but not what I was looking for.

Bottled. Poured blood red with a creamy, well-retained tan head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet, lightly-toasted cherries, oak, and almonds.. very sweet overall, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found lightly tart cherry skins and oak throughout.. pale malts and some cherry meat supported.. dry cherry skins, oak, and light oxidation on the lightly-peppery finish.. not particularly complex, but tasty. Lighter-bodied with low carbonation.. OK feel and flow, but just too sweet.. solid overall.

I think I was expecting something similar to the Aged Pale. And going from that I was disappointed.
