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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pink, rose pour with a pinkish head. Aroma is tart, cherry notes, but not overwhelming. A bit fruity. Flavor is also tart with some fruit sweetness. Good beer. Not a lot of depth, but tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, corked and baled. Pours a hazy rubied garnet with very little foam at the rim but lots of rising nucleation columns. Tart underdeveloped pie cherry notes on the nose as well as the palate, with a fairly flabby body. Itís pleasant, but needs a lot more presence in both the body and the flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Didnít get much in the way of aroma, but a decent pink color. I thought this was pretty tasty. Not real sour or funky, but enough to balance the sweetness. Almost that a starter version of a sour. Enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pink with a bubbly white head. Aroma is cherries, cereals - tart and sweet. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, medium sour. Flavour is sour cherries, some light malt backing. Fairly one dimensional. The finish is sour and something seems kind of off, maybe too acidic. The beer is okay until the finish.

Not a horrid beer but certainly a horrid sour. Pinkish pour and faint cherry aroma are promising but the taste just doesnít come through. Like drinking Country Time lemonade mix instead of fresh-squeezed.
