Bottle courtesy of Ryan. Poured a hazy amber with thin off-white head. Some astringent sour cherry flavor. Forgettable.

swanmann (629) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Clear amber with pink/ purple hues and quickly dissipating off-white, pinkish foam, leaves no lacing. Aroma of cherries and yeasty dough. The flavor is sour cherries with a bit of barnyard funk and some crackling grain, dull bitterness in the finish. It’s highly effervescent with thin-medium body; tart aftertaste. It’s sort of perfume-y and doesn’t lack sweetness, but still a nice take on a sour ale.

jake65 (2729) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle: Glowing peach/amber colored pour with a short lived white head. Nose is malty with very light fruit and hints of oak. Tastes malty, earthy, sort of a stale tartness, cherries, and more stale malt. Overall the odd stale notes and lingering malt are a turn-off. Bummer

tastybeer (1782) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle, courtesy Brigadier. Pour is hazy light pink/purple. Little retention/lace. Aroma is lightly tart, cherry, grape. Taste is light cherry, very light tartness, grape. Palate is dry, fizzy, thin, light sweet finish.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Not really so much of a sour ale. Pours a pale amber/red with a slight white halo. Leaves some lacing. Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is sweet cherry that is neither cloying nor especially fresh, natural tartness. No sort of puckering. Just a very drinkable, slightly sweet beer. Find it hard to believe this was meant to be a sour/wild ale and not just a beer aged on cherries.

TimE (3365) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2012
Deep amber golden color. Slightly sour, strawberries. Light bodied, but unbalanced and all over the place. Not really that interesting.

Marheb (2302) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
Un peu médicinal, cerises mi-sucrées mi-surettes et fini très sec. Pas aussi mauvais que je l’aurais pensé.

crossovert (7921) - Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2012
This beer was not what people were expecting but it isn’t horible. Slight tartness and cherry, lighter appearance.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a cloudy red color with a large, but short lived head. Musty yeast and cherry nose. The flavor has stale, weak cherries, paper, yeast, and a slight tart note. Dry clean finish. Tastes like a dull spritzer. Light body with a dry clean finish. Certainly drinkable but not remarkable in any way in the world of sours.
