On draught during Bailey’s Taproom’s Seventh Anniversary Barrel-Aged BeerFest. Dark golden amber color. Aroma is vinegar and basement funk, dark cherry, and Chardonnay. Taste is similar to aroma, but the flavors mesh better and have a woodsy element. Well-balanced sour.

On tap at Parry's. A reddish brown body with a thin white head. A small bit of lacing. Smells like a cherry sour. Tastes heavenly! One of the best sours I've ever had! Wonderful balance of fruit, Pinot noir and a bit of malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster på brewpub. Rødlig gul uklar øl med fint skumhoved. Fantastisk sur duft hvor rødvinsfadlagringen tydeligt kan duftes. Dejlig sur og frisk smag hvor jeg glæder mig til at drikke de to flasker jeg har med hjem. Dejlig øl.

rouhlas (339) - GREECE - JUL 24, 2014
375 ml bottle at home. Dark copper color with nice off-white head. Aroma is mostly funky and "sour" at the beginning, cherry, bretty, a little bit vinous. When it gets warmer there are malty and wood senses. Taste is like aroma but more intense. Sour and funky at the beginning with tart cherries, later there are sweet malty notes. Great very long dry sour salty woody aftertaste. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation.

chinchill (2145) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
On tap at the RR brewpub in Santa Rosa: July 2014. A: deep orange-amber; clear; Large creamy bone-colored head is fairly furable and leaves some lacing. Aroma: about as good as this style gets (for me). Flavor: excellent very tart and fruity flaovr. Rather subtle effects from the pinot noir barrel aging, especially in terms of woodiness. Excellent lingering, midly tart aftertaste. FeeL; smooth; medium-light body; good low carbonation; near puckering tartness. O: excellent.

Old rating…but remembering that this was perhaps the best balanced sour I ever had. Cherry, wine barrel, brett, earth, funk, lemon. Wonderful mouthfeel as well.

Bottle - Pours a murky brown. The nose is sour, vinegar, and cherries. The taste is tart and cherries up front and tails off at the end. Pretty good!!!

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from Lectvay, thanks again! Copper pour with a small white head. Slightly acidic aromas of cherries and some wine notes. Oak and funk are also there. Flavor is an awesome combination of them all. The wine and cherry qualities compliment the oak and tannins so well. Perfect level of sourness. Just a very impressive beer. It’s reputation is well-deserved.

tmoreau (2576) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Shared 12.68 oz./375 ml. bottle, poured to snifters displaying a hazed, amber/copper hue, with soft white head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was tart cherry, not necessarily wild, but under control, yeasty funk, woodiness, light tannic astringency, and mild vinous hints. The taste continued with a nicely balanced play on sweet & tart, and a pleasantly dry & fruity finish. Very nice! Thanks for donating to the cause, Bob S..
