Bottle shared at the CBC - Clerkenwell 1st Birthday Party, London. Pours cloudy, amber-red-brown with a small, white head. Nose holds mild sour cherries. Great flavor, not overly sour, though it certainly has some tartness. More cherries, tart themselves. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Super clean finish, moderate tart cherries. Very nice balance overall. Excellent. rumproasts (5341) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Tap. Deep mahogany with minimal head. Very tart brown ale. Strong cherry notes. Excellent.

On tap at fobab. Glad I finally got to try this one. Pours a reddish brown with a slight white foam head. Aromas of sour dark fruits, overripe strawberries. Taste is sour but incredibly drinkable. Loved this stuff. shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Draft. Vinegar, yeast, cherry, malt, and straw aroma. Cloudy orange-brown with small head. Initially a sour vinegar flavor followed by sweet cherry, malt, and straw flavor. Yeast aftertaste. Very nice. GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2009

GABF 2009. Pours a hazy medium amber with a light beige head. Aroma smells like wild berries and mild funk. Lighter side of medium bodied. The flavor really captures the flavor of wild berries, with a light maltiness in the background. The sweetness is just right, so that the controlled tartness can play into the mix. Acetic traits are tame, in a good way. I like this because itís not thick sour bomb. Excellent, and extra points for getting the "wild" berry flavor into the beer, something I have never experienced before. It reminded me of when my grandfather and I would go berry picking along the country roadsides. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2009
sample from the pitcher at GABF on 9/26/09... Really nice Sour from Bells! I was really excited to see them pouring this one.... and it was one of the only ones left at their booth... pours a murky golden brown... sour citrus nose... some funk on the nose as well... light to medium body... nice tart finish. very enjoyable. madvike (3250) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2010
On tap at Maduroís - Pours rosy amber with a small off-white head. Tart and funky on the nose, with some citrus--lemon mostly. Pretty smooth. Taste is balsamic vinegar, light oak, and a bit of orange rind. Fantastically easy-to-drink. Not too tart, but funky enough. Stole a bunch of my buddyís pour cause I liked this so much. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2010
GABF 2010, one of my favorites of the week, brown red pour. aromas of tart cherry, funk. taste is sharpe cherry tartness, sour funk, a good sense of mouth puckering. everything seemed to blend just right here. very good JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Michigan Brewerís Guild Summer Festival 2010. This is the last thing from this fest that I can actually decipher notes from. Bright funky aroma. Lactic tartness and a bit of light cherry fruitiness. Softly funky with a little bit of light earthiness. Really soft and fruity. Intensely funky. A touch of vineous character. Very tasty.
