Lukaduke (2153) - 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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 Bottle from RS membership. Aroma is sour cherries and slight almond. Flavor carries very tart cherry, toasted coconut, and full-dark sour. Palate is very good with medium carbonation, and there is no residual aftertaste. Very good sour! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries, cola, light vinegar, oak, and a hint of lemon. It pours cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet cherries and a touch of cola. The finish has heavy sour lemon, a touch of oak, and faint cinnamon. As it warms, the cherry gets stronger. It’s medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation. Overall, the aroma is misleading since it doesn’t smell that sour. The sourness is intense in the flavor though. I dig it.
