Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, veggie, hints of acetic acid, some spice, yeast, touch of grain, slight red wine and fruit. Taste is red wine, fruit, toffee, hints of grass, hints of weird tart notes, finishing fairly tart, dry.

On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pour is clear brownish-orange with a small white head. Caramelly, toffee, light vegetal notes, bread, pepper, and dough in the aroma. Taste is red wine vinegar, wood, toffee, caramel, and butterscotch - pretty acidic. Light body with medium carboantion. Meh.

bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 8, 2012
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of sweet tarts, caramel, light vinegar, vinous, and cherries. Flavor of cherry, sour apple, somewhat candish, herbs, and grass.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 16, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a hazed amber hued body with a small off-white head. Aromas are spicy, biscuity, bready, vinous, barrel, currant and dark cherries. Flavors are lightly acetic, cherry, currant, funk, horseblanket, green apple jolly ranchers, and red wine. Lively bubbles, rich and funky.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ taproom. Christmas candy peppermint red. Clear. Sweet, syrupy Maraschino juice in aroma. Flavors are better. Has nice nutty malt character at the foundation. Just a wee bit tart, like natural fruit tartness or sour cherry pie filling. Some cranberry. The candy sugar character is nice.

Oakes (18517) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Reddish-brown. No head. Kind of hazy. Lightly spicy and quite fruity aroma. Fruity, tart and almost candyish on the palate.

douglas88 (9570) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2011
On draft at Falling Rock GABF weekend. Pours a reddish copper color with almost no head. The aroma is huge bitter and sour notes, fruity, some cherries. The flavor is very nice; woody, vinous, cherries, hot almost bourbon notes, vanilla, very tart but drinkable. Quite complex. Nice.

3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2011
draft. sweet cinnamon candies and maraschino cherry juice nose. medium-thick body, boozy / thick / syrupy and sweet artificial cherry flavoring with medium-light acid (mostly on the edges) which doesn’t work at all with the full, rounded body. nose has some mild lacto fatty esters but it’s mostly dominated by the sweet red apple skin and cherry juice malt.
