Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly cherry with a slight bit of malt. Flavor starts out with cherry sweetness that finishes with a fair amount of tartness. Not as sour as I hoped. I prefer their Our Bruins and Aged Pale more.

Butelka, lidlowa warka do 05/02/17. Piana lekko bezowa, syczaca, blyskawicznie znikajaca. Samo piwo klarowne, burgundowe. Aromat niewatpliwie wisniowy, czuc ze kwasny. sa tez jakies w tle nutki marcepanowe. czasami nawet cos slodowego - karmelowego, ale ginie to w tle. smak jest juz jednoznacznie wisniowy. za bardzo wisniowy, bo reszta cala pod tymi wisniami ginie. i nie da sie ukryc, ze te wisnie sa kwasne. za to w posmakach zostaje cos a la cierpkosc, dretwienie jezyka. srednie wysycenie, malo ciala, taki kwasny cukierek bardziej niz piwo w odbiorze... alkoholu wlasciwie nie czuc zupelnie. w sumie to ja nie umiem ocenic tego piwa - pewnie przez brak porownania do innych w stylu. z jednej strony kwasno-cierpki cukierek a nie piwo, z drugiej ma swoj urok. Bardziej mi pasuje niz alebrowarowy john cherry.

Bottle. Light tart aroma of cherries, subtle vanilla and wine. Promising. Unfortunately the taste is very sweet, while not being tart at all. Instead it is astringent and tanninic in the finish, almost beyond comprehension. What a waste of good barrels.

W aromacie kompot wiśniowy z marcepanem, czyli doctor pepper w piwie! W smaku marcepanu mniej, więc zostaje tylko kompot, nieco pestkowy, wyraźnie kwaskowy od wiśni.

Butelka 0,33l. Barwa rubinowa, klarowne. Aromat soku wisniowego i w zasadzie nic poza tym nie wyczulem. W smaku piwo lekko kwasne i rowniez dominuja wisnie, a na finiszu wyczuwalna goryczka. Moj pierwszy sour, ale wedlug mnie nic specjalnego. Za malo tu innych smakow poza wisniami.

car13many (112) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
AROMAT: Sok wiśniowy. Niezbyt intensywny. WYGLĄD: Rubinowe, klarowne z dość obfitą ale bardzo szybko opadającą pianą. SMAK: Wiśniowy, wytrawny z dość mocną goryczką. Alkohol jak na 8,5% nieźle zamaskowany. PIJALNOŚĆ: Wysokie wysycenie, trochę taki syrop ulepek. OGÓLNIE: Nie mam zbyt dużego doświadczenie z Sour’ami. Takie dosyć gęste piwo owocowe.

It is tricky to find the optimal temperature for this beer. Deep red colour beer with a decent head seems to be nothing more than a cherry liquor, too sweet and lacking complexity. There is, however, the fine spot when barrel and valilla notes subdue the cherry juice and the beer becomes really interesting. What’s more, the subdued juice is not fooling our nose anymore and the taste shifts from sweet to gently sour with vanilla, barrel and a hint, but only a hint of cherry. The snag is to find the proper temperature. When the beer gets too warm it shifts back to cherry liquor again. My final note for the cherry state is 3.0, but in the fine spot the beer fully deserves 3.9.

Keogh (92) - Świebodzice, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Barwa ciemnych wiśni, piana obfita drobno pęcherzykowa. W aromacie głownie wiśnie. W aromacie to samo, tylko dochodzi lekki posmak takiej, hm beczki, średnio kwaskowe. Średnie wysycenie, alkohol w miarę dobrze schowany. Pijalne, aczkolwiek mogło by być ciekawsze

peponi (587) - Krakow, POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Aroma: cherry, barrel notes, vanilla. Appearance: deep red color, creamy head. Taste: almost no bitterness, cherry and barrel notes, slightly acid, astringent, alcohol, pharmaceutical aftertaste. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, alcohol finish. Overall: Pretty poor, alcohol should be better covered.
