Dark red color, minimal head, virtually no lace/retention. Aroma is sour cherry, wood, funk. Medium bodied, moderate to high tartness, low sweetness. I’m starting to really like their sour offerings.

A - pours mahogany dark cola with no head. S - smells like a sweet cheery pie. Metallic canned cherries and buttery pie crust. Notes of dried dates (those weird clif bars made from dates) sweet. M - lacto lemony tartness to a sweet sweet palate with a dry sticky end. No carb. T - can't decide about this one. Tastes are tart canned cherries, brown sugar, dried sweetened dates and nuts. This really really tastes like that cherry date paste clif bar. I'm not even kidding. And a hint of soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Lacto lemony tartness. 3.7

Bottle. Thanks Randall. Pours with a medium light brown head that does quickly. Hazy reddish brown in color. Nose of tart cherries. Imagine that. Some subtle pie-like aromas. Kind of doughy. Taste is initially tart and quickly reveals the cherry flavor. Malt flavor is a little flat, more focused on the sourness and fruit. Very nice.

From Chris. Thanks!
A: Lightless red, almost black. Very light head. Not much in the way of legs.
N: Big cherry, oak, bubble gum, vinous grape, earth, leather, acetone.
T: Big sourness rounded out by soft cherry and grape. Nicely balanced for such an acetic beer.
M: Light bodied, hidden alcohol.
O: A winner. Nice complexity without overpowering acid. One of the Bruery’s best.

Yes. This is one of the best sours that i have had. Very good mix of alcohol with a bite that isn’t too pukcering.

Bottle at Blippsmas! Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Big lactic on the nose, sour cherries and some tartness. Big lactic tartness, huge dark cherry skins, lots of fruit, tons of sour acid. Very balanced, lots of tang and acid. Very nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. Nice tart funky base, with faint fruity cherry, mild acidity, a hint of sweetness, and a nice tart and relatively dry finish. Good stuff.

750ml bottle in a taster glass. Pours hazy ruby/brown with a beige head. Aroma of sour/tart notes, dark fruits, light cherry, and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good sour.
