One of my favorite beers at PIB ’12. Gorgeous dark red pour and red head, sour cherry and currant notes dominated, with a hint of vanilla. Starts sour without puckering and eases out. Steasy66 (1158) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
11.2 oz into small tasting glass
A- Deep amber, fine head that fades fast.
S- Smells sour I guess? My palate is not very refined when it comes to sours so that’s the best I can do.
T- Sweet and sour seem fairly well balanced. Again, my palate is not refined enough to enjoy this, so I can’t say much more.
M- Fairly thick, low carbonation.
O- Sours are not my thing. As sours go, this is one of the better I have had, so I don’t want to rate it poorly.

Sour cherry aroma. Flavor starts sweet, with a very sour, acidic finish. This isn’t my favorite style, but this is still a great beer. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Brownish red colored pour. Nary a head and no lacing to be found anywhere. Acetic, sour fruit notes in the nose. Very tart bite up front. Nice sourness mixed with a slightly fruity note. Not bad. Would drink again. Keyes88 (161) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Deep red color with a large head that quickly faded. Aroma is a mix of sour, vanilla/oak, and cherry. Taste is a very pleasant tart that seems more inviting then any other sour I've had. Finishes dry that welcomes another sip.

A great beer for the girl in you life that swears she doesn’t drink beer. Sweet, tart cherry flavor with a lasting delicious finish. No added fruit is masking this excellent sour, the gateway for all things delicious. rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from New Leaf Market. Clear, deep amber pour with a fizzy whit ehead that fades quick. Nose is nice sour cherries, vinegar, lemon peels, hints of hay, funk and maybe some lingering vanilla beans. Balance leaning on the puckering vinegar side with more sour cherries, lemons, leather and underlying barn funk. Finishes tart with great carbonation. Pretty damn tasty. jeff789 (1423) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Clear dark mahogany with a quickly fading tan head... tart lightly funky cherry oaky aroma, mild sweetness, more tart than sweet in this case cherry is relatively intense... lively fruity cherry mild tartness, mild sweetness, definitely a top notch oud bruin... intensely sour up front, fades quickly to a sweetness that is still overtaken by the sour... medium bodied, very flavorful... odinstyr (806) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours a dark red-brown with a minimal head. Smell is cherry, dough, earthy. Taste is very sour with a bit of sweetness - cherries, a little chocolate - very powerful. mymaestro (55) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Sour and sweet at the same time. Dark cherry flavor and color. Distinct Iambic tartness. On tap at The Blue Nile.
