On tap at Blind Tiger. More dry than tart in the aroma: slightly vegetal with mild notes of coffee and tart cherries. Mild tartness from the cherries with some soft chocolate malt. Tartness increases as it warms. This got better as it warmed. Mild and simple sour but nonetheless enjoyable. JBPortland (1542) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
375ml bottle pours hazy toasted red with small half finger head. Nose still holds lots of nice cherry pie spice, a hint of funk, round toasted crust and some cereal. Taste is medium tartness, round cherry and berry spice, toast, bread crust, a bit chalky. Finishes mostly dry with earthy toast and bits of semi-sweet roud tart cherry. Still tasting really good! jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
