Thanks, Mark! The pour is orange with a tall white head. Strong cherry aroma, but also a weird salty note. Some oak, a bit of pineapple, straw, and lemon. The flavor is highly acidic. The cherry character is not quite as pronounced. Mild red wine vinegar, leather, and some citric acidity. Very simnple, but good. Dogbrick (14443) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Hazy brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of tart fruit, yeast and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of tart cherries, yeast and oak. The finish is fruity with a mildly sour cherry aftertaste. Decent overall. crossovert (14358) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2012
750 corked bottle.
It pours a nice rosy pink color with just a slight bubbly head. I love the color though.
The smell is god. Lots of funk here and lots of oak notes. It doesn’t have that sourness in the smell though. The cherries are there, they have that distinct processed scent that only comes form the way the process door county cherries, there is something about that scent that always puts door county beers above others. I think it has something to do with the cherries and their skins.
The flavor follows though it isn’t as funky or oaky. A bit more sourness creeps in but it is still decently mild. There isn’t a huge vinegar kick but there is a nice bit of tartness from the cherries themselves.
I think this one could be aged, and I wish I had more than 1 bottle.

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Cherries, woody, some funkiness, and some bourbon. bu11zeye (13288) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2010
(Draught) Pours a cloudy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, florals, and oddly flour. Flavor of vinegar, sour dough bread, pedio, and cherries. The aroma and flavor don’t compliment each other. deyholla (12803) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured a hazy amber with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of tart red berries, particularly raspberries, with a hint of bourbon. Flavor had sour berries, particularly raspberries again, as well as funk that was a backing note. hopscotch (11526) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle... Pours lightly hazy and deeply amber with no head. The aroma is a tangy, fruity mélange of apricot, plum, white oak and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Big-time sour cherry flavor and acidity, flanked by a soapy, minerally finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping! phaleslu (11064) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Draft sample at FOBAB 2010. Pours a hazy amber color with a small but resilient bone white head. Notes of cherries, raspberries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, balsamic vinegar, and caramel. Medium-bodied with melow carbonation and a tart, funky, and sweet mouthfeel. Nice marriage of a sour with bourbon barrels. Surprised to see the relatively low ratings on here because I really liked this.
