brystmar (1306) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Dark, black cherry color. Oaky + fruity, concentrated, like a blend of 3F kriek, boon kriek, and an oaky American sour. Plenty sour, perhaps a bit overly so.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought big notes of sour cherry, dark berry, hints of oak, slight vanilla, hints of slight vinous notes, some cinnamon and other spices. Taste is a mix of big tart lemon, sour cherry, nice vanilla, cinnamon, slight oak, hints of spice, touch of caramel, finishing very tart, more cherries. Nice.

jbeatty (1157) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle, 10/13/2013. Pours earthy brown, light tan head dies to faint swirl on the surface, nearly still after a few minutes. Aroma is cherry, dark oak with touch of vanilla, raisin vinegar with brown sugar, mild acetic finish. Taste is tart, puckering earthy dark cherry, citrus overtones, balsamic finish. Medium body, though a bit watery character to finish. Decent.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle shared by Dave. Aroma is amazing with cherry pie fillling, caramel, black cherry, iron, lemon zest, and oak. Pours murky dark red/brown with very little carbonation and slight film. Taste is super tart and very intense. Sour cherry, black cherry, caramel, lemon zest, and sour oak. Just a perfect oud tart with cherries. This is Red Poppy on steroids. This may be the best sour I’ve had. Hard to say.
