Poured a clear mahogany color that grew cloudy as i poured more from the bottle. Head was tan with a slight red twinge to it. Retention was light. Aroma was of cherries, wild yeast and a subtly spiciness to it. Flavor was initially tart with cherries then the wild yeast came through finishing with a slight vanilla flavor. Carbonation was appropriate. Reynolds314 (3462) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Fantastic wild ale from Cisco. Pours a nice ruby red with white head. Nose of rich cherries and vanilla. Taste is sour funked cherries with nice vanilla sweetness. Very smooth and tasty for any sour fan. Highly recommend this and I need to try the whole series. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2011

Pours deep ruby-tinged mahogany into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Oaked rum and cherry aromas. Medium bodied with sour cherry upfront turning oaky in the lasting tart cherry finish.

Courtesy of dcschiller. Bottle pours burnt red with a white head. Aroma shows notes of cherry pie (crust and all), oak, light toffee, spice, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of cinnamon,
and some more funk. Not quite as acidic as I was hoping, but overall not too shabby. BrianDorry55 (361) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2011

Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby bruin body. Tart cherries, and cherry pie fillings. Cherry pit and skins, there really is quite the assortment of cherry on display here. Very low acidity, nice nutty body, a hint of lemon sourness. Tannic, a light wood tone and a mild sweetness. Excellent. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle via a trade. Pours with a hazed ruby-red hue and a small off-white head. Aromas are lightly acetic, balsamic vinegar, vinous, red wine, lacto, oak, funk, pie cherries, cherry pits, with a little bit of sweetness imparted by the cherries. Flavors are sour, strongly lactic, some acetic, dry puckering and quite sour. Light sweetness, pie cherries. The funk is nice, but tastes a bit unrefined next to a Lost Abbey or Russian River sour. Light oak. Finishes bone dry. Easy to drink, puckering, tannins. lively bubbles. Well done. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
Thanks to Dan for opening up this bottle at a recent tasting. Served in a snifter.
Pours a nice, dark red color with a single-finger white head and a bit of lacing as it makes its way down. The nose brings a really great cherry presence plus a bit of tartness from the same. A bit of light oak and funk are there beside a nice sour presence. The taste is of tart cherries, light funky characteristics, some oak, and a bit of sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation and a good amount of acid all around. Drinks quite well; I really enjoyed this brew.
