Poured from a bomber into a The Bruery snifter a dark burgundy brown color cloudy with a ton of sediment & little head. Aroma is acid cherries with a favor that is shocking cherry pie with a touch of oak. Wow wow this is a great sour brew! Overall an incredible sour and I might add I am not a huge sour fan. o_O.

The perfect amount of tart! The cherries come through but are not over-powering. I give it a 10 on panty scale.

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 Iíve had. Hard to say.

Pours a cloudy dark burgundy color with a small tan head that dissipates rapidly. Nose is like a cherry sweet tart. Taste is puckery for sure but a great sour with cherries. Good carbonation. A favorite sour of mine.

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. Itís medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation. Overall, the aroma is misleading since it doesnít smell that sour. The sourness is intense in the flavor though. I dig it.

Bottle from Homer321, thanks bro! Non-shelfie bruery sour. 2014 edition, label says 8.4% abv. Pours a murky dark red with a small head, almost looks like blood. Thick. Aromas of cherry jam, oak, sour fruit. Taste is sour and off dry. Flavors of cherry, oak, some woody/spicy component that is not oak. Nicely tart. Alcohol is completely hidden. Thick mouthfeel. Medium carb. Very unique. Can taste the pie crust. Finishes quickly with a pucker. Top notch.

On tap at the Bruery Reserve Initiation party 2011. Pours a murky rust mahagony color with a slight tan head that collars around the glass. Nice tart cherry aroma in the nose along with slight acetone. Light mouthfeel. Well balanced comes to mind as I drink this. It really isnít overly sweet or sour but somewhere in the middle with the sweetness of the cherries being counteracted by the tartness and vice versa. Ends with a lingering tartness. Very drinkable.
