2010 Vintage. When the bottle is first opened, you are immediately hit with this sharp pungency of fresh cherries. This aroma rapidly turns into a bit of a cherry cough syrup type scent, and then once poured the lacto begins to take over with hints of unripe cherries. There is a slight hint of vanilla in there (which I’m guessing is from the oak) as well as a nice forest quality, like fresh grass or the inside of a forest on a sunny day.
The taste is quite surprising, especially when compared to the 2008 vintage. It’s sour, but only slightly and it’s sourness is masked by quite a bit of residual sweetness. There is a lot of dark cherry flavored, with some chocolate coming through as well. A bit of harshness comes from the wood and it is still quite boozy. I think that over time this will turn into something beautiful, but for now it is complex but a bit disoriented feeling. It finishes very much like cough syrup and burns for quite some time.
I did not believe there are cherries. But there are. Super acidic one. Not a noble brew zizzybalubba (1891) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2018
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Raleigh (North Hills). 2017 bottle listed as 10.5% ABV, bottled on August 28, 2017. Dark orange pour with a quick off-white head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar and tart lemons. Taste is tart cherries but well rounded with a solid oak presence that gives the beer an almost whiskey-like taste. A solid sour ale. rami_pl (4786) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 14, 2018

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 Bottle shared. Reddish brown pour. Aroma is cherries, lots of wine barrel. Taste similar, not really tart, lots of wood and wine in this. Very complex and good. dalekliz (927) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2017
2016 bottle. Pours a murky reddish brown with a bubbly white ring that fades. Tart cherry aroma, with sugar, oak, vanilla, grapes, malt, and yeast. Taste is tart and sweet, lots of cherry and vanilla, oak and malt, with sparkly yeast. Lingering tart cherry-wood notes. I was the only one in my family who liked it but I think it's great!

Thanks Yetsko for bringing me a vintage 12 bottle! Nice mellowed sour brown. Lots of dark fruit, slight vinegary tartness, still very rich tasting sour. Love the bottle donandres (687) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - NOV 13, 2017
