Bottle in Weehawk courtesy of Paul on the 4th. Pours dark red with pinkish head. Aroma is pretty weak and the palate is kind of modest as well. More tart than sour with notes of cherry or strawberry. Not as much dark fruit as I like in a sour, but this wasn’t all that bad.

Pours carbonated ruby with a huge pinkish head that dies down reasonably fast. Smell is stale tart cherry and a bit medicinal. Taste is slightly tart, fruity, cherry, cranberry, bitter finish. Kind of reminded me a bit of vomit. Not so good.

Bottle from a trade with Gription79. Consumed on my birthday, the big "40". Pours hazy brownish red color with off white head. Aromas of tart cherries and oak. Tart cherry flavor with some woody notes. Mild sourness. Light to medium body with effervescent carbonation. Thanks Dallas

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Light pink/plum colored pour with a foamy ivory head. Tart cherry, lemon zest and some medicinal/aspirin-like qualities. Not a lot of depth and some off flavors. One dimensional...and not wowed by the dimension I’m consuming. Meh.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for the share. Cheers, John! Pours a clear amber with red highlights and a white head. Nose is sweet malt, light cherry, and a hint of alcohol that almost comes off as bleach. Flavor is similar- lots of tart cherry and some sweet malt in this one. Medium in body and lingering tart cherries in the finish.

750ml bottle. Rating #42. Dark rose color, clear with a light pink head. Light fruity aroma, sweet and sour cherries. Sour bite right up front, more cherries and a little sweetness in the finish. Not bad. (2404)

Clear amber pour reddish tint thin white/pink head decent carbonation .... aroma is light and of bitter and tart cherries ... taste is of dry sour cherries, light bitter and tart ... not much else to it light flavors finishes dry and tart ... bittersweet brew easy to drink just lacks flavor .... Should have saved the $17 bucks

Pours pinkish hue, with minimal head and as bubbly as champagne. The aroma is nothing special. When it hit my palate it tasted like a wine spritzer or flavored carbonated water, followed by an unpleasant sour musk aftertaste that made it extremely difficult to finish and ruined my tastebuds for hours. The best thing about the beer was the bottle it came in, which I was excited to add to my bottle collection above my kitchen cabinets. However,after tasting this beer I never want a reminder so I threw it out. Do yourself a favor and save the twelve bucks!
