Bottle at the taproom. An unclear, amber to brown beer with a rim of light beige bubbles. Cherries, some faint almonds, and lemony, brett-ish aroma. Some roasted hints, vaguely. Cherry, almond notes, with tart, lemony sourness and a touch of caramel roasted hints. Full body, semi sweet, nice carbonation. Lasting finish. A true beauty. 130811

Bottle at The Bruery. Pours murky amber with a small off white head. Aroma of cherries, oak, malt and sour grapes. Flavor is sweet and sour with some lemon, cherries, some caramel , malt and some pits. Medium body, average carbonation.

GT2 (8444) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Dark, murky red amber pour. Low carbonation. Fine for this style. Nose is heavy black cherry, red wine, vanilla, oak. Taste is lemon citric, pretty much all citric acid- needs some sweet, chunky black cherry balance. Some mild butyric acid in finish gives a hot, abrasive bile/stomach acid note.

GABF 2012, Friday. A simple beer that does what it does very well. Lots of cherry in the flavor and aroma, combined with a lightly acidic yeast aroma and sour flavor. Light pink color.

Served on-tap at the 2011 bruery RS initiation party into a taster glass. Glad I got a sample of this early. A - Pours deep brown with a small head leaving little to no lacing down the glass. Nothing special really. S - Similar to supplication. Tart cherries, oak, vanilla sweetness mix well with a lightly toasted malt center. Pretty good but it kind of works against itself. T - Quite a bit of sour cherries up front with a moderate amount of lingering acidity. Plenty of chunky cherry flavor adds a touch of sweetness. Some vanilla and oak come thru once the acidity dye down. One of the best beers at the party. Very nice stuff. M - Good body with a lingering tart cherrie feel. The carbonation was a little low but it worked in its favor I think. Pretty good. D - I am glad I got a sample of this. It could have used a bit more cherries but it was still pretty good. I hope they end up bottling it at some point. I would love to have a few.

Pours a reddish brown hue. Cherry taste is strong throughout as is the sour taste. The aroma lets you know what you are in for. Sampled at the Reserve Society Celebration 2012.

Draft pour. Dark muddy red with no head. Aroma is cherry, tart, leather, balsamic, and sour. Taste is mouth puckering sour and cherry with tart and balsamic. Crisp and substantial feel in the mouth. More intense aroma and flavor profile than the base beer. Great sour.

draft pour at ebf has a brown color and a nice look. aroma has decent acidity, sour cherry, light funk, and some fruit. mouth feel is light and easy to drink. flavor has a good tartness, medium acidity, cherry, gets good and dry and the finish lingers. the base beer was nice and this is a treatment that worked.

Draft. Pours a ruby esk body with a bubbly head no real retention. Aromatically big sour cherries, light funk tones, a hint of vinegar and some light wood character. More tart then sour, light leather tone and a low acidity level. Nice offering.
