4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bright sour aroma, with the lacto coming forward, finishing with a hint of cherry and tannin. Pours clear amber with a light red tint, with a full white head that sticks around. Sharp sourness starts the flavor profile out, with bright lemon. This fades to a mid palate with cherry and sweet notes, fading to a earthy dry finish with a touch of the Pinot Noir coming through. If you like sour beers, this is definitely one to try.

Sour cherries are in! Big in cherry nose and flavor. Mix this with a light petite Syrah character and you have this wonderful complex beer/wine.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a murky copper ruby color with a very thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is cherry, red wine, Brett. Taste is moderate to heavily tart and sour with some mild fruity sweetness. Flavors of cherry, Brett, red wine grapes. I'm not a big sour fan but this is very well done.

Not a lot of experience with sours, but this is excellent. Opening up a whole "New" world of variety and quality. Definitely get the cherries, the pinot noir, the oak. Refreshing, dry. Well done.

At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Supplication pours a lovely pinkish amber brown. Sour, mildly oaky, rich fruity flavor. Med-light bodied with a chalky tart fruity flavor. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 375ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled on 1/16/15 printed on label.
Appearance: Pours an opaque copper-orange with a 1/2 finger bubbly snow white head which dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Oak barrel and cherries dominate with a touch of barnyard funk and vinegar. There is a hint of sweetness that balances out the sour aroma. Smells amazing.
Taste: The oak characteristic from the barrel is dominant up front with a blast of sour cherries and lacto sourness in the middle before ending with tannic dryness that leaves a very mildly sour and oaky finish. Overall, the flavor is a bit abrasive and not as balanced as I would have liked.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Decent drinkability. This is a one and done beer for me.
Overall: Very good beer overall. The aroma is by far its best characteristic as it smells truly great. I would definitely recommend trying this beer, but I think it’s a bit overrated.
