2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From 12oz bottle (thanks, Rob).
Pours a clear dark copper with lots of head. Classic sour aroma featuring cherries. Tastes like a sour that would get a darn good reception from those who like sours.
Sadly, I am still learning a taste for sours (apparently I am a slow learner)...

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured on tap from Poppy’s in Estes Park, CO. sour and a bit of malt on nose: tastes of red sour fruit, vinegar, sweetness (fruity) underneath, really nice finish. as it warms, there is more funk on the taste, but stays underneath the sour fruit lambic character. Super delicious.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2015 Appearance: deep dark ruby color, clear, pours with a medium head thatâ€™s kind of beige Aroma: sour, tart, red grapes, hint of funk Taste: strong tart, strong sour, wine grapes are there too, aspects of red wine in there, green apple Palate: lively carbonation, leaves mouth dry, lighter mouthfeel Overall: this is an intensely sour and tart beer, very delicious to me even if Iâ€™m missing the complexity thatâ€™s apparently in there, very subtle hints of wildness, has that kriek cherry Taste to it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambrée foncée, effervescence moyenne-faible, col très fin. Cerises très sûres, pommes, plutôt boisée, vinaigrée. Pas mal dans le genre mais un peu trop acide à mon goût.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep ruby pour with a persistent off-white head. Aroma is tart cherries, green grapes, wet wood, and cinnamon. Tart raspberries, cherries, and oak, with just enough bready malt sweetness. Quite good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at O’Riley & Conways, pours a clear dark red with a thin head, the aroma had all kind of funk and fruit with quite a bit of vanilla from the barrels too, the flavor has a tart front end with quite a bit of vinegar in the finish, but in a good way, almost reminds me of the first time I tried La Folie, really nice.

11.2 oz bottle. Aroma is fruity (plum, raisin, banana), funk, vinegar. Pours clear ruby red with minimal beige head. Taste is mouth-puckering (9/10 on a sour scale) and acidic backed by some overripe fruity sweetness. Fine fine sour ale.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown pour with a finger of red. Oak, balsamic vinegar, Bordeaux, dried cherries, vanilla, spice, nuts and dark berries. Acidic but with wine like body and medium carbonation. Almost refreshing. Good smooth finish. Complex

Packs a sour punch with the cherry flavor and reminds you of balsamic vinegar.
