Pours a clear brown with a thing head but I’m suspecting that’s the bartenders work because of the sparkly-ness in the glass. Aroma is wine barrels and sour cherries with a nice light well rounded sourness. Taste is sour then sweet and really super good. Seek this out it is worth.

Russian River is always great. You have to like sour ales. Good color. Aroma of cherries gives nice start and finishes well.

375ml bottle. Vinous aroma with notes of cherry. Pours orangish-brown with a lot of carbonation and a thin white head and absolutely no lacing. Rich carbonation in the mouthfeel. Starts quite smooth actually with the sweetness of the cherries coming through nicely. Finishes very tart with the cherry flavor lingering as well as a vinous red wine character that lingers on the palate. Excellent sour.

Clownoisseur (216) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Pours a vibrant copper color, hues of gold/pink. Small head, fine carbonation. Aromas of tart cherry, wet oak, cobweb, grape skin and light earthy notes. Taste is very tart upfront, acidic, vinous and loaded with oak. Notes of citrus, fresh cut flowers and an herbal accent make appearances. Lively carbonation keeps the tart present throughout. Finishes very crisp and dry. Excellent American Sour/Wild.

Sour nose, amber appearance. Lighter than the consecration, but harsher aftertaste with some serious sour. Lip-pursing.

Wild fruit and barnyard....cherries and brown malt aroma with a very nice oak vinious balance. Very nicely carbonated with champgne like bubbles, a very special dry finish...A+++++

Bottle pour shared. Thanks T! Pours a reddish orange with a super sour cherry aroma from quite a distance. One of the most sour beers I’ve come across. And I’ve been looking. Sour cherries and berry. Wine like beer, but not a bad thing at all. Loved this beer to say the least.

poech73 (197) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2014
Sample @ Quintessence 2014. Bière ambrée surette.
Nez fort acide, boisé accompagné d’un houblon herbacé. En bouche la gorgé manque de générosité : plutôt douce et épicée accompagné de saveurs de levure boisée. Cependant elle offre un bel équilibre avec l’acidité qui ne surpasse pas le maltage boisé et légèrement vineux. Finale surette. Bien

arondee (565) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours yellow in color with little to no head. Aroma is sour cherries, lacto, and wine. The taste is lightly sour with a little bit of cherries and then the Pinot barrels come through in the finish. Very approachable for non-sour fans IMO. One of the best. Love it.
