3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of ginger ale, raspberry and yeast. Pours light red with a sudsy head. Taste is tart with cherry pie filling and heavy sour yeast. Reminds me of the Founders Cerise. Not the best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with almost no head. I get no cherry smell in the nose, and no cherry in the taste either. Nice and sour with a hint of fruitiness. Very easy drink, actually.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, caged & corked. $21.99, Weinhaus, Asheville. Pink color, white foam. Aroma of sweet malts, tart cherry essence, and wild yeast tartness. Lively carbonation. Mild flavor. Tastes of fizzy wheat, some juice essence, very light berry character. Very light bodied, crisp & refreshing. A very thirst-quenching finish. There is a slight taste of cork hidden in the end. Tasty. Very subtle sweetness, I donít see any benefit of letting this one age. Some dryness may add character, although I think its great fresh. (3496)
Happy 2nd Birthday, unclemattie jr.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Well hazed amber cherry color. Two and a half fingers of foamy off-white head. Retention is about average, but no lacing is left behind.
3.0 S: This is quite strange. It smells like cherry flavored Sprite. Beyond that there is oak and light tannins, lemon and lime (which contribute to the Sprite), phenolic cherry, and berries. Some light, musty funk and some balancing sweetness.
3.0 T: The taste is much like the nose. It tastes a bit like Sprite too. Lemon and lime, followed by cherry and berry. Oak, faint vanilla, and mild tannic astringency. Hints of clove. Musty basement funk with dry-rotten wood and apple orchard. Itís not bad, but itís not a very good sour, which I think is what they were going for.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Thereís a bit of spritz to it, but it could be more so. Smooth though.
3.0 D: Itís easy to drink, but it isnít impressive in the least.
