POured a dark ruby red with a decent sized off white head that lasted for most of the glass...Although the head retention is partly due to the etching on the bottom my tulip...Nevertheless the beer continuously emitted a distinct odor of cherries...Flavor was of Sour cherries but not overly sour quite pleasant in fact...Very sweet malt comes through leading into a slightly acidic finish...Body was a bit thin for my taste...I was suprised at how little of the oaking came through after 20 months...All in all a very decent beer

A sweet and sour aroma of flowers and apples. Appears clear light golden yellow, thin foam, but nice lace. Taste is mostly sour balanced with some sweet and slight bitterness of bubblegum and apple. Palate is a little foamy, and thinnish. Overall, this is a very good beer! Should be considered a Berlinerweise.

On first glance it looks good and smells ok too, but the taste is a real disappointment

This is yet again another style that is just not for me. I don’t know if the bottle I bought was ancient but I found this way to dry and almost tasteless. I poured it down the drain after a couple sips. I may re-rate this in time.....probably not though.

11.2 fluid ounce bottle poured into a 2008 GABF tasting glass (yes, I didn’t break mine.) Smooth, medium bodied, really rather unassuming. Understated oak-aged toffee malt flavors with hints of sour cherry.

Pours a medium red brown with a fluffy head that drops away quickly. A little cherry nose and sweet black cherry flavor. Finishes quickly.

scent is certainly sour. taste is of fermented fruit and some hops. sour after taste. just the right amount of carbonation. I could drink this again.

Such a tiny bottle (8.4 ounces); I would like to try this again before finalizing an opinion, but it struck me as a fine beer.
