One of my favorite sours. This is a beer I believe should be had. The sour of this beer is apparent right off the bat. The appearance for some reason surprised me. I have had this beer a few times before, but for some reason this pour was something else. It is a beautiful type of purple/pink that is bright and non transparent. Its a beautiful beer in all areas of rating. Cheers King James

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickeys on December 01. 750 mL bottle, 2005 vintage. The pour is a dirty reddish color with a thicker pink head and a couple spots of lace as it falls to a film. This is an interesting thing. There is a plastic VOC thing happening on the nose. There is a light rubber band thing going on that Im not crazy about. There is a good amount of cherry and a nice tartness, but its just not as crisp and clean as I was hoping it would be. The flavor is much of the same. The cherry is a little dry and the VOCs and rubber band are still prevalent. The mouth feel is thicker and syrupy with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and tart cough syrup thing happening that just doesnt do it for me. Maybe this needs to be a little fresher.

Sample from 2002 bottle at the Trailer. Rich, nutty, almond, marzipan, cherries subdued, not so tart. Soft cherry, subdued. Bit of coconut too. Low carb. Fucking great. Aroma has more cherry. Some tomato sauce!
