375ml bottle thanks to changeup45. WARNING: stout drinkers first sour. Have the pleasure of drinking a batch 4. After popping the cork I got a familiar aroma of red wine. Maybe some barley wine mixed in. Pours a murky brown color into my balloon tulip glass. Keeps a nice steady thin foam island in the glass. Slight lacing. Sip #1. Holy moly this is gross. OK not gross just not expected. "Give it a chance Art". I keep telling myself "Think wine". Sip #2. Another whiff. Funky aroma. I smell some cherries. Wow is this thing Sour! The taste reminds me of Warheads candies I had as a kid. Maybe a cherry warhead. I wish I had a comparison with a fresh one at this point but Iím sure this is a delicious beer to some. No concern that it has gone bad. Let me check back after Iíve acclimated a bit..............OK Iím back. Iím getting used to this. More cherries coming out now. Still super sour. Causing phlegm to build up. Be right back. ...............ok Iím still going strong. I hope this is entertaining to some. If you enjoyed this message me and send me some other top 100 sours. Iíll do the same. The sourness is tolerable now. I think this is probably how first time IIPA drinkers feel. Iím definitely going to revisit and re-rate this one later. So my last few sips have actually been enjoyable and have changed my perception of this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ah supplication.... I love this beer. Beautiful color, great smell of the delicious things to come: The sour cherries is strong on this one, woody, wine and the tartness packs a punch. Carbonation is just perfect, nucleation makes it spicy to the tongue. A well balanced sour. A+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1860) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2015
Clear, deep orange with some red colors. Smooth redcurrant and cherry with hints of sweetness. In the mouth it is again fruity with a hint of sweetness but a rich, boozy, tart flavor also comes through. It is very obviously a strong beer, maybe even punches above its weight with the winey character.

Livendadream (146) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Btl pours a clear light brown color with some ruby highlights. Big thick soft head lingers leaving no lace. Smells of berrys, wood,my wet dog, and hint of wine. Tastes of sour patch kids,wet hay, wine, and cherries. Medium body, perfect carbination, tart mouthfeel, and a dry finish. I really canít desribe this adaquately. This is beer is fantastic! It has so many different flavors and aromas we could be here all day. I love it! Mouth puckering, barnyardy,wine barrel wood, dark sweet fruits, everything you could want in a sour and more. It is worth every penny!

Batch 092414. So good! The wine shines though in an amazing way! The sourness is slightly more pronounced than consecration in my opinion. Still subtle though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GlasgowTAD (326) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a clear amber colour with a slight foamy red-brown head which recedes to a lacing. Aroma is cherries, raspberry and brett. Taste is red berries, tart redcurrants, red grapes which lead to a long red wine finish.

Deep orange-brown pour, small off-white head. Great tart aroma of cherries, barnyard, brett and earth. Flavor is fantastic, earthy, vinous, tart, with notes of wine and peach. Effervescent. Tart start, bubbly fresh middle, vinous finish. Fantastic.

fraternie (884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Shows sour, wild yeast aromas, with a broad palate of orange rind and lemon peel citrus above super yeasty undertones, finishing with blasts of barnyard funk, sour cherry, and distinct loamy flavors. Shows style and persistence for sure.

Cheery wine nose raspberry type of flavor tons of hay and funk. Not a fruit beer fan but love the fruit sours for sure. This one is best with nice carbonation and so so good basement wine cellar notes of oak and barnwood. Superb.

First let me start off by saying I donít really like sours. On tap at the brewery. Pours a honey color, small white sticky head. Sour but the pinot noir adds a nice element of dark fruits, and cherries. Flavor is very sweet and sour.
