(750ml bottle) cloudy ruby red, ring of fine edge bubbles. Nose of cherry pie, crust, cinnamon, cherry mash, sweet, delicious and straightforward but smells amazing. Taste of cinnamon, cherry pie, touch of vinegar that doesn’t take away at all, super pie-like, just delicious.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle to the dome. Aroma has a moderately strong, tart cherry character with a hint of juiciness. Medium light oak notes with moderate acidity, a touch acetic. Some light toasted malt character and a hint of caramel. Pours a hazy red with brown hues and a faint, forced, slightly tan head that recedes to the edges where it lingers a bit. No lacing and faint legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with a lot of cherry flavor and some juicy/jammy character. Moderate lactic acidity with some faint acetic character and a bit of a lemon note. Medium light oak notes. Faint malt notes of toasted bread and caramel. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the low carbonation makes the body seem bigger. Low acidic astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a rather nice beer with a lot of great cherry character. Rather acidic with some nice oak notes. Could use some Brett funk to balance the fruit and acidity while adding some complexity.

Bottle share at DLD 2014. Pour is burnt orange with no head. Aroma and flavor of wood chips, cherry juice, sour mash, cranberry, and yeast. Finish is extremely sour.

Bottle... This beer has a huge, firm rack!… Cloudy caramel-colored pour with no head. The nose furnishes musty acidity, tangy fruitiness, woody funk and a dash of acetic acid. In this example, I can empathize with those who mistakenly confuse the acetic component with acetone instead of vinegar, the acid’s true origin. However, in most cases of this type of mistaken identity, people are just muppets. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and nearly-expired carbonation. The flavor is ridiculously sour and one dimensional - I LOVE IT. Not at all acetic here, but there is loads of clean, acute, lactic acidity. Fantastic, crisp, sour finish. Many thanks to biggsbowler for coming through with this world class delight!

Huhzubendah (2637) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Hoarders Society 2013 bottle. The beer is hazy and amber/brown hues with perhaps hints of crimson. Small, wispy head that quickly fades with a hiss. Aromas of tart cherries, lactic funk, oak. The flavor is more of the same. Sour cherries and an intense puckering finish. Acetic and bold. Overall pretty good, though best shared a few ways.

baraciisch (1971) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Amber, caramel brown in color... Aroma of oak, caramel, tart cherries... Flavor is intensely tart, yet mouthfeel is still fairly light, oak and cherries on the finish... Notes of vinegar... Fizzles a bit on the finish... Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (2786) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle shared by BenC and MrPickles - Pours reddish amber with a couple tan bubbles. Sweet cherry on the nose, with balsamic vinegar and a little wood. Kind of muddled. Taste is better, with rich pie cherries, real tart vinegar, and woody oakiness. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle shared by Randall. Murky burnt orange pour with a white head. Tart as hell. Aromas of sour cherries. Acidic with vinegar, malt, and sour cheery highlights. Decent body and mouthfeel..
