JStax (2955) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a darker amber with no head. Aroma is big sour and cherries. Lots of tartness. Some sweetness creeps in about mid palate and then finishes very sour. Nice variant.

Blew normal oude tart out of the water. Poured a deep ruby red purple, smell and taste of cherry, cinnamon. Vineous, and delicious

jbeatty (1020) - 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.

Iphonephan (3142) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Sample at the 2013 GABF. Pours a clear cola with a tan head. Tart dark cherry with some green apple. Lingering tart finish.

Jesterdeal (1842) - 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.

Lukaduke (2112) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a rusty ruby brown with a finger of gaseous eggshell foam. The nose is sweet cherry, musty wood, cider vinegar and caramel. The palate follows with some round tart cherry notes, touch of warm cinnamon spice, rotten apple and some acetic vinegar burn in the throat. Parts of this beer excited me but the overall experience was a bit underwhelming and lacked refinement.

nimbleprop (4732) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2013
750ml bottle pours an oily, translucent caramel amber with zero head. Nose has vinegar, caramel, rhubarb, sweet and tart. Flavor is the same, sour patch kids, berry, rhubarb, vinegar. Tart, acetic finish. Lacks a little complexity.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
murkiest tan pour, thin white ring. Murky cherry, sand and lotion nose, Sinners 09 all over. Flavor is skunky plum, very tart, hints of clay, acetic building through experience. Warmth calms it, still singular but not so burning.
