I liked this a lot. Easy drinking. Not as sour as La Folie but definitely sour. Still, a light sweetness helped cut the sour along with a more pronounced oak flavor. Very well balanced. Struggled a bit as it warmed up.

Aromas and flavors of sweet/sour cherries, with American oak nuances of dill pickle... and subtle notes of vanillin bourbon, which dissipate after hours open. Solid tart, mouthwatering acidity... Almost a bit to sour IMO. A hint of sweetness rounds out the profile. A bold sour... seriously.. there is nothing delicate about this one. Best to try this at 55 degrees and again at 65 degrees... I personally preferred this a bit closer to room temp. Another over-the-top styled one from 'The Boulevard'. Intriguing, though not the easiest to drink. Yet, I kept going back for more... A conundrum of sorts..

Poured from 750 into Rodenbach glass.
Vinegar tartness with light barrel and funk. Some sour fruits in the nose. Rich caramel look.
I’m glad I have some more of this in the cellar. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a medium beige head. Funky nose with sour citrus and berry notes. Malty and caramelly flavor up front, then a big sour vinegar finish.

A hazy brown-red beer with a small, quickly dissipating off-white head. The aroma is yeast, wood, sweet, and tart cherries. The flavor is quite funky with lots of tart cherry and smooth alcohol in the finish. doublebock (558) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Appearance: Bright orange and light brown with thin white head
Aroma: Red wine barrels and caramel
Taste: Tart cherry at the beginning with sweet maltiness and with a sharp and oaky sour finish.
Overall: How to top a beautiful sour? Age it in barrels of course. You know right from the first whiff that this is going to be a special beer. Memorable and lingering tartness and up there with any Russian River.sour. Dogbrick (14288) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing a bottle during his 50th birthday bash. Hazed copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually to a film. Aroma of tart cherries and oak. Medium to full body with flavors of sour cherry, oak and a bit of vanilla. The finish is tart with a lingering cherry and apple aftertaste. Good brew all around.
