Thanks Justin & Cate! Sour and fruity aroma, tart cherries make add layers of complexity. Tart cherries jump out at your palate first, yeasty and mildly bitter as it descends. Tastes like a fresh sour with serious potential for aging. Can't wait to see how this develops after a year or two.
375ml bottle pours a murky orange with a ring of white head. Nose has acid, apricot, perfume, strawberry. Flavor has acid, apricots, stone fruits, lemon and grapefruit. Finishes high acid, tart. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2016
750ml, waxed bottle. Cherries, wood, tartness, woodiness / oak, and some citrus. Few years old and aged OK. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle pour at SARA. Sorta like Cuvée de Tomme with carbonation. Sour, Cherry, awesome. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Great bottle ! Pours a rusty brown with a finger of gaseous eggshell colored foam. Great complex notes of spicy cherry pie, sweet vinous notes and some boozy wood character. The palate follows with a beautiful rustic cherry pie fullness enhanced by tart sour notes of vinous fruit and well balanced barrel influence. A real treat to drink ! alexsdad06 (10978) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 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.

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. phaleslu (10750) - 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. mikem409 (2029) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours murky brown. Tart aroma and a very sour cherry mouth. Not sure on this b3shine (9208) - Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by me with the group). Looks good; a cloudy orangish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells tart with notes of cherries and light nail polish remover. Tastes like it smells without the nail polish. Good on the palate. Plug your nose and drink up! daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013
Cloudy reddish brown color with an off white head. Flavors of balamic, wood, cherries, ligh lemony notes, some aspirin flavors. Loved it.
