Bottle brought to BenCs huge BCS tasting by beerwolf77...thanks Todd! - Pours murky brownish-read with a thin tan head. Nose is grape skins, red wine, a bit of malt, lemon rind, and Sweet Tarts. Real tart and vinegary taste, with sour black cherries and red wine--but not dry and parching red wine--and a long, tart finish with lots of dark fruit. Big carbonation on this one, with a fluffy body. Excellent stuff.

Such a complex beer with a huge amount of acidity and sourness which I loved. Just an easy drinking mouth-puckering "NW style sour" lol.

Bottle shared @ 5 Seasons North. Pours a murky reddish brown with off white head. The aroma is medium strong in the sour vinegar and cherry with nice oak notes. The flavor is loaded with cherries, earthiness and the oak really shines to smooth out the finish. Very drinkable and a very nice sour.

2/25/12. Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Hazy brown pour with a small ring of head. Big tart aroma, sour and acidic with some wood and vanilla. Really nice tartness again with a touch of wood. Good stuff.

The aroma is vinegar, tart cherry. The appearance is brown/red, off-white head. The flavor is vinegar sour, tart cherry. The finish is the same. Quite good, but the vinegar overwhelms the cherry here.

Yes! Best sour Ive ever had. Aroma is nicely fruity with grapes and cherries. Taste is tart but not too vinegarous. Flavor is heavy currants and berry with a nice oaky spicyness. GREAT

750 thanks to ben greenburg. Smells like supplication, the barrel aging is amazing, tastes tart and sour and a tiny bit funky.
