awesome stuff. thanks to muertosporter for this gem. ruddy brown body with small off-white head. aroma of cherry, raspberry, oak and sugar. flavor is larger in oak than expected, but is similar to the aroma due to the presence of tart berries. musty and quite puckering (like a gueze in this sense). would love another bottle

Bottle. Cap basically blew off when I opened it, but no gush. Copper brown pour with some beige head. Aroma is lightly tart cherries, some sugar and a little funk. Flavor is the same, a pretty good sour cherry beer, but nothing that sets it apart from anything else I have had.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a murky deep ruby brown with a large and quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma initially is a bit chemical and harsh, but the volatiles really dissipate quickly, what’s left is rotting apple skins, lactic tartness, pear, dead leaves, black tea, but still a little bit of paint smell lingering. Flavor is lightly tart with yogurty lactic character, light oak tannin, and is a touch musty. There’s a touch of caramelly malt on the mid-palate, with some more leaves on the finish. I was really disappointed initially, but fortunately it aired out and warmed up really nicely.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown with a thin white head. Nose and flavour of tart cherry, citrus, wood and some funky character. Pleasant mouthfeel with the sourness lingering for some time. A nice interpretation.

deyholla (7454) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2010
Sampled from the bottle at the 2010 March Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a cloudy light brown with a slight red hue and a small off-white head. Aroma was very tart and sour with an undertone of sweet fruit. Flavor was very tart with notes of cherry and raspberry.

Thanks to tpd975 for the share. Pours orange-brown with an off-white head. Nose is tart cherry, vinegar, yeast, slight malt, and slight funk. Flavor is similar with vinegar and tart cherry dominating and slight malt in the background. Interesting take on the style.

harrisoni (14464) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle at Pre ZBF 2010. Thanks to Ken for this one. Cloudy deepish red/copper colour with a thin beige head. Buttery sour, oak barrels give butter and vanilla flavours. Not particularly good flavours up front, but decent sour on the finish.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Enjoyed at a recent BA/RB tasting... Bottle poured reddish, cloudy, ruby with a thin, off-white head. Aroma of tart grains and sour fruits. Candied malts with tart sour qualities and acidic, vinegar like flavors. A great sour, but this was drunk after the Hommage and that was it’s only downfall.

Bottle generously sampled before Sexual Chocolate release. Dark copper brown pour without too much of a head. Oak, cherries, apples, and tannins as well as some tart citrus. Nicely dry. red wine, and a general citrus tartness. Quite good.
