3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014. Clear light copper with orange hues, small white head. Very nice mix of aromas including sour cherries, pepper, light acetic note with some funky notes. Light body, crisp, dry palate, very sour, acidic cherries and some wood in the end. Very palatable, a bit too acidic for my liking, but quite nice nonetheless.

Excellence in execution. Really sour and almost puckering. Rich and ripe with a dry wine like finish. So easy to drink and easily in the top bracket of sour beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served, showing a hazed, rosy/amber color, with a quick, bubbly, off white head that reduced to a thin ring & film, and left some light spots of lacing on the glass. The nose was some yeasty, microbial funk, spice, expressive cherry, and tartness. Medium bodied, with spritzy effervescence, the flavor was almost sour, some vinous nature was evident, along with tanniny astringency, and some finishing dryness. By no means timid, perky, and quite tasty, but a snifter full was just enough.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, 2011 vintage. Poured light-medium orange with an off-white head that fizzled out rather quickly. The aroma picked up sour cherries, oak, and rich, almost boozy vinous notes.. meaty, with more dry, vinous character evident around the nose.. quite nice. The flavor found aggressive cherry and vinous sourness on the tip of the tongue, with chewy rye bread, meatier vinous notes, and cherry jam following.. sharp and dry on the quick edges.. peppery notes, strong wine, and sour cherries on the belly-warming finish.. a little heavy-handed, but otherwise very tasty. Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation.. balance between the components was good, but there was a tad too much of everything.. overall a very good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Pours extremely cloudy orange/brown with no head, soda-like fizzy activity, big bubbles, lots of fast streams. (Unfiltered, bottle-conditioned).
Nose: Sour apple cider-peach, noticeable funk/puke. (6/10-pungency)
Attack: intense puckery sourness
Mid-palate: (10/10)-acidic sourness, (6/10)-fruity sweetness, (MAIN) oaked apple cider, pukey aftertaste + sourness, sour malt
Finish: lingering astringent sourness, tangy sour finish.
Summary: Not for those who have bad memories of late night drinking games and mornings spent waking up hugging the toilet. Lots of sourness and puke when sipping by itself, but quite effective in refreshing the palate when paired with heavy BBQ’d food. Hard to finish when it warms up.
