Bottle shared by Jay at Paul’s. Pours dark amber brown. Nose and taste of cherry, tart fruit, sour fruit, light funk, light caramel and oak. Medium body. Moderate acidity. Good balance.

j12601 (12979) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle that I took to Paul’s for the Blind Stout tasting. Pours a lighty hazy ruby tinged brown with a thin beige head. Acetone and cherries on the nose, soft vinegar musk. Musk and acetone with a nice bit of malt and cherries. Warm sour acid and a bit more acetone and vinegar into the finish. Long tartness into the finish with more acetone and sour malt. Interesting, but a bit too much acetone in here.

750ml, waxed bottle. Cherries, wood, tartness, woodiness / oak, and some citrus. Few years old and aged OK.

Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Pours a very cloudy amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light sour cherry note with a bit of backing oak and funk. Flavor starts with a nice sour cherry note with a bit of barrel and a light funk note that come out in the finish.

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a hazy deep orange amber color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have tart cherry, cherry skins, vinegar, wood, caramel, light acidity and funk. Some solvent to the nose. First drink was a touch rough, but did improve.

phaleslu (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine- thanks, Beau! Red wax-dipped, so it’s this version, not the Barrel Select Cherry. Pours a hazy reddish-brown, very murky, with no head. Aroma of tart cherries, lemon, oaky funk, vinegar, earth, and spice. Flavor of soap, lemon, tart cherries, oak, grapes. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sour, funky mouthfeel. Not my favorite take on a cherry sour.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2013
750ml bottle, shared by b3shine. Hazy raspberry rosy light brown color, nice gradient. Little off-white head, couple loose bits of lace. Tart, spicy taste. Light bite to it, but I don’t mind. Big wood, some cherry. Bigger body. Light sticky texture. Light carbonation. Decent fruity sour.

blipp (9502) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Pours hazy amber with a thin head. Tart and acidic, with cherry, light wheaty notes, and a dry and tart finish. Good stuff.
