Forgot about this one, this was great, Thanks Frumpty. Smooth and tart with a nice sour acidic feel. Cherry and some wood rounds out the taste. Very good.

Handbottle opened by WeeeeHeavySD. awesome. Light yellow red color. Lots of plasticy Brett B phenolics. Aroma somewhat like wax lips. Some sweetness. Some cherry tartness, but smooth and mellow overall. Wonderful aroma I keep smelling over and over again.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2008
20th rating, 12oz handbottle from my main man mike, mike aspidites. Shared with my gf cyn and wetherel. Pours pink with a tan head. Supremely funkalicious cherry nose, super sour with tons of big funkin punch. Great handbottle, no ill effects noticeable. Tart funky sour and overall big old fashioned yum. Very nice overall.

3fourths (8099) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Soft, woody cream nose – tart, lightly acidic, candied. Flavor is fruity and soft, medium tartness, but thick and full on the palate… cherries, sweetened red wine, lactic acid, and raspberries (even more so than the cherry note, which is strange)… stemmy, raw, raspberries. Quite good.

AgentSteve (1627) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 I think this is batch 2, as I hear batch one is sweeter of the two. Pours a beautiful ruby red with no head. The nose is tart and vinous along with cherry and oak. The flavor is wonerfullly complex, with the flavors in the nose taking turns standing out. The finish is nutty and oak. smooth on the palate. Thanks for the bottle Craig!

12oz handbottle, courtesy of FrumptyDumpty, Friday at BCTC. Thanks again, Ryan! Pours a bright red with a small white head. Nose of sour cherry candy. Flavor has more sour cherry, a bit of sugary sweetness, and some tart raspberry.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
12oz handbottle, courtesy of FrumptyDumpty, Friday at BCTC. Thanks again, Ryan! Pours a slightly hazy, ruby red-raspberry color; thin pinkish head; very nice color. Lots of funky red raspberries, pittiness, and light citrus in the aroma; strongly tarted up; some toastiness comes through. Loads of sour cherries, raspberries, and tart citrus upfront; very nicely soured; pitty red fruits, lightly medicinal; very soft edges. Long, long finish: tart red raspberries, cherries, and a touch of toasty oak; long-lasting red fruits.
