Tap at OBF. Color is reddish amber. Aroma of sour cooking cherry. Near med body. Flavor is cherry and pretty sour - not overly acidic - but heading that way. Mouth smacking. Crit (4011) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2010
Huge unpleasant sour nose and profile. Somewhat salty. This is supposed to be a sour ale, not vinegar 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café during Big Wood 2008:   Heavy amber, brownish hues, moderate frothy off-white head, a few rings of lacing.   Oakish, apple and cherry skin on the nose.   Some golden raisin.   Has a sour fruit skin flavor.
Reminds me of old raisins or figs.   Tart, but not sour.   Mild dryness.   Needs something more.   Not watery, but does seem a bit thin.   Kind of does a faceplant on the finish.   Tiz okay, but the flavors are
too muted. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Dark red decent bubbly head. Vinagrette aroma. Almost metallic. Oaky sourness. Tart dry w some lactic tartness infinish. Lingering oak notes, dry. Sour but npt too acidic. Good deal of oak, underlying fruity sweetness. Soft tartness. Smooth carb. Nice offering. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Sampled at the 2009 Pizza Port Belgian fest.
Sour flavor, overall it’s tart and tasty.

Dark red with a smooth off-white head. Fruity cherry and earthy malt up front, soft acidity and tart finish. Not as sour as some them, but I enjoyed the easier acidity. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Tap @ the Brewery. Out of order rating, but wanted to enter this to push me back into number 1 sour rater slot. Pours dark red with a tan head. Nose is light and sour. Taste is sour, and light and very tart and quite tasty. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2008 Mobile rating. Draft at the brewery. Dark purple brown color a small off-white head. Mildly prickly blackberries and peppery currants. More prickly than sour. Fruit sweetness on back: red grapes, currants, plum, etc. Interesting but not spectacular. Needlessly simple, quietly sweet and dissolves quickly on the tongue into a flabby and stale mess. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Draft @ Raccoon Lodge. Pours a slightly oily, yellowish brown color; creamy, light-tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Slightly balsamic nose showing red fruits, along with some slight honey and biscuity wet malts. Medium mouthfeel: decent levels of citrus / balsamic tartness, along with a full lemony acidity, but a bit watery at the core, with more cardboard than solid oak or anything else; heavy on the balsamic and overripe red fruits. A bit lacking at mid-palate and beyond. Medium finish: toasty oak and wet malts (light), and lingering light red fruitiness.

Clear brown with a thin tan head. Nice sweet/sour caramel aroma with cherry. Mild to medium tart flavor here balanced by a caramel, dark raison, and cherry sweetness. A nice example of the style. [email protected]
