This amber gold beer has an aroma of cherries and wine. It has a subtle sweetness but hits you really strongly sour. Almost champagne like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very interesting beer. Pours a clear orange. Smells great, lots of wine, some green apples. Taste is extremely tart, but complex and tasty. Tastes like sweet tarts. Had in the bottle.

Wow, this beer lived up to the hype. Great tart aroma and the fruitiness is fantastic - great cherry and berry taste. Doesn’t look like anything, but what sour does? So well balanced and full bodied, really remarkable.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Thanks mike for sharing what I know is likely to be a favorite for you. Brett, cheries and apples in the nose. Dark brown. Tart on the drier side with layers accentuated by a long Brett finish. Gets better and better.

Meilleure sour que j'ai bu dans ma vie ! Au nez, on sent le baril de pinot, les cerises et les levures sauvages! Le goût est parfaitement balancé entre acidité, fruité et alcoolisé. La finale est enrobante, moyennement soutenue et acidulée. Je suis sous le choc! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours brown with a tiny bit of red tint with a thin tanish head. Aroma of cherries, barnyard funk, grass, saison yeast, apples, and tartness. Flavor is awesome, probably the best sour I’ve ever had. Lots of cherry and tart flavor, a little sweetness but not overwhelming, funk, and no yeast bitterness on the back end. Medium body, dry smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer.

Another big time brew brought by someone to WWBA. pours ruby with nose of sour cherries and red wine vinegar. tastes of lovely cherries, vinous, barnyard, and wood. quite tart and maybe a little harsh on palate but very enjoyable

MrFecesious (952) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle share. Batch 007. Pours a hazy burnt orange. Aroma of sour cherry, apple jolly rancher, red wine, grassy funk. Taste is so tart! It’s exactly what you hope the taste to be. Delightfully tannic/astringent. Dry, crispy and clean finish.
