This is a good beer. Aggressively sour and wild. Hollow on the midpalate. Feels thin, which makes the beer refreshing but not all that interesting.

Pours a hazy reddish amber with a thin ring of off white head. Aroma and taste are tart, tart, and more tart with cherries, vinegar and nice carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Andrus86 (481) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2016
TAP. Poured a soda red with light rose head.. Barrel & cherries dominate nose, a hint of acidity.. Good sour base, oak & cherries hit middle to end, Chery/sour combo ends up quite refreshing.. Sourced cascade brewing

sulawang (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2016
Visual: 2014 Vintage, Hefty bottle, twisty wire cap and composite cork with their name stamp. Bottle-conditioned. Pours clear cherry wood reddish brown without much of head, thin ring with a couple of islands, clusters of micro active streams.

Nose: pukey caramelized brown sugar, tangy red wine vinegar, sour cherry-apple (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: crisp-big SOUR and big TARTNESS

Mid-palate: background pervasive wet woodiness, red wine & apple cider vinegar, ACIDIC-tangy, jammy (lvl-5-sweetness), puckery sour red cherry juice, caramelized barley malt

Finish: unsettling in the stomach, sour raspberry-pomegranate juice fruity exhale

Summary: Again, so puckery sour this has to be minutely sipped. Im liking the wet oaked woodiness and the dark fruity notes are nice, but I cant fully endorse it as it just doesnt hit the proper notes for me. Too vinegary acidic sour, not bright nor refreshing enough.
