Poured from a bomber into a Bruery snifter a ruby brown with a nice thick head that quickly disappears. Aroma is tart fruits sweetly soured. Cherry in the forefront Flavor hits you like a nail in the head. TARTness all day. Cherry is forefront with a touch of blackberry. Balanced-nice. Not disappointed with this collaboration.

Nose is sour blackberry and cherries. Color is a cloudy red amber with a 2 finger light tan head. Taste is sour cherry and blackberries with a slight bitter finish. This is certainly sour but not overly sour. Palate is good with an adequate amount of carbonation. Serving temperature was 48° F.

Great sour tartness. Solid offering. Refined. Enjoyable sour, but kinda along sour in the rye. But nothing over the top.

It fucking tastes like burning. There are some good fruit flavors going on in here, but they are all overshadowed by the extremely heavy acetic acid. No thanks.

Bottle thanks to madirish76:   Reddish hued caramel, darker, frothy head, spotty lacing.   Big tart cherry and also some other sort of berry nose.   Touch of vinegar on the tongue, sweet, sour, tart, young cherries and a bit of berry like fruitiness.   Smooth, flavorful, backside shows a bit of sweatiness but its minor.   Great balance.   Not overly sour, but enough sweetness to balance it all out.   Certainly more fruity than a lot of others.   Great stuff, albeit I could do without that soft sweaty background.
