3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the most solid true sours out there. Deep dark reddish brown with a thick body. Sour apples and cherries with a hint of oak in there. Itís definitely not along the musty, funky lines that I tend to prefer - and thereís a sweet, syrupy note right through the middle - but this is a drinkable, earthy, classic sour.

Bottle at home. Cola colour. Sour nose. Nicely textured. Cherry and fruit flavour. Sour and tart finish. Definitely for the fan of this type of beer.

This beer is very yum-yum. It is unique. It is sour and tart and refreshing and crisp, not too thick or complicated, but one can tell that time was put into the brewing and it is quality. Yum!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml corked and caged bottle pours a clear garnet mahogany with a thin beige head that leaves sheet lacing. Aroma of mossy oak, cherry skins, and horse blanket. Light bodied in the mouth with a clean earthy feel. Taste is sour cherries, wet woody oak and wool sweater. A nice example of a splendid style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 Oz Bottle. Apparently a 1998. Thanks for sharing Dylan. Aroma is an intense, creamy tang of sweet fragrant framboisesque cherry reduction, light vanillas and tannic highers. Nectar. Rather still pour of a ruddied mahogany with a little perfusive haze. Ginger water filteres through a thinner feeling concotion of cherries and apple blossom sugar. Bites of honey and acid. Perfumes the nostrils with a hit of heat. Enjoyable, but not exemplary.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, no date. I canít wax poetic, but weíll see. Pours a clear brown ruby with a one finger beige head, eventually fading to a thin film. Aroma is sour with vinegar, some cherries, funk, light musty oak, and maybe some lighter nutmeg. Flavor is stronger with moderate sourness and some sweetness akin to a Duchess Bourgogne, though not quite that sweet. There is some light wood, sour cherries and a little mustiness. Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Pretty decent.

A Liquid Moment of Peace.
