clear ruby with a small white head... light tart aroma, some notes of cherry, very one dimensional... loads of cherry flavor, light body refreshing, tart, lively, vanilla, oak.. very flavorful, excellent light sour cherry ale... chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle drank at Jackie O’s, provided by Beace, thanks dude...Pours a grapefruit juice color, not much carbonation...The aroma is oak, cherries, fairly acidic, sour...The taste is a little sweet cherries, oak, a little sour. Tastes good but more of a juice than a sour. Very crushable.
Can’t recommend this highly if you’re looking for a sour, but if you wanted to just crush something, not a bad grab. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a bright red with no head. Very red, but not fake red. If that makes sense. I’ve had plenty of beers that look like they are artificially colored, but this looks more natural than the other beers I’ve had. Strange I know.
Tart sourness. Wine, wood, fruity.
Very tart. A little bit of a whiskey flavor from, I guess, the wood used. A bit of a wine taste as well.
Thin, no carbonation, no residual sweetness. A bit on the dry side.
Not bad. I don’t know if I could consume this in a significant quantity. The thin quality makes it a little blah, but it tastes good. Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2011
The serving was from a bottle purchased at State Line Liquors. There seemed to be lots of funk in the nose, a very maraschino cherry note, cider vinegar, and earth notes. It pours a very deep pink color with a light pink, foamy head. The flavor is very cherry up front but lots of funk and oak swimming in quickly. I think there is a bit of butter in there as well. Not overly tart and not altogether impressive either. Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours red with a tan, lingering head. Smells of sour cherries, some sugary ihnts, funky, some dusty hints (think old barn in the countryside). Tastes Sour, tarte, fruity with some residual sugar and a funky lambic like taste. The most complex of the three I got to try.

Pours rose into a snifter. No head whatsoever on vigorous pour. Cherry aromas. Crisp sour and tart cherry front to back. Lasting oaky cherry cobbler finish. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle pours like ruby-red grapefruit juice with a white head. Aroma shows notes of cherry, lemon, oak, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows basically the same. Overall body is somewhat thin and doesn’t quite seem to support the acidity. Good, but could be better. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
(750ml bottle). Pours pink grapefruit with white head. Flavor is tart, but watery. A decent beer, but not great. SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Gold pour with red highlights. Aroma of cherries, malt, wood and vinegar. Flavor is much the same. Pretty tasty stuff! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Reddish pour. Aroma is tart. Cherries, light vinegar, lactose, oak. Flavor is tart cherries, sour vinegar, oak...pretty good.
