4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
