2015 bottle from cellar. Poured into snifter - pours a dark reddish brown with a light khaki head. Head doesn’t stick around long, dissipating to a ring. Aroma of cherry with a bright lemon-lime citrus note. Taste is a little bit funky with lots of cherry that lingers all the way to the finish. Not too acidic and it has a lively/zingy carbonation level that tickles the tongue. Very very very good. RobertDale (6552) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 6, 2017

From notes. Had at a tasting at Abu and Ashley’s on December 15. 12 oz bottle. The pour is a reddish brown color with a little light shining theough and an off white ring of head that disappears quickly. The aroma is surprisingly sweet for a sour red. There is a sourness to it, but the bourbon is also prevalent. The sherry and grapes are interesting to it, and there is a good maltiness before the wood makes an apprarance. The flavor is a little sharper. The bourbon is intense and the fruits fall off a little. It’s just getting a little messy here on the finish. The mouth feel is a little light and decently carbonated with a lingeringly messy finish. The fruits and bourbon really don’t balance, and there is an interesting combination of sweet wood and tart fruits. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2016
Bottle at a tasting in San Diego 161107. Hazy deep golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Sour bourbon aroma, grapes, vinous, woody notes. Sour woody flavor, grapefruit, bourbon, raisins, some cherries. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy brown color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is strong, when the cap is popped you can smell this across the room, with red fruits. The taste is tart cherries and sour grapes set in a mild brown malt base. The palate is medium. Finishes long and sour. Overall: decent sour.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown. Aroma and taste are tart cherries and oak, could be fooled it wasn’t bourbon barrel aged but still good.
