I guess they are going for a sour. It is sour. Not much depth here. Poured from a can. Aroma is metallic. Cherry flavor but overwhelmed by lemon. Finish is also overwhelmed by lemon, the Real Lemon from a bottle. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 7, 2015
An ok beer - definitely on the weaker end for the style. Cherry and oak with a slight cola flavor and nose. A touch dusty, with a little vinegar in the finish. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Pours a deep reddish color with a brown hue. Aroma of cherries and light chardonnay wine. Taste is sweet, cherry, dry and slightly malty. PartyFowle (954) - - JUN 26, 2015
Draft. Reddish copper hue with a very thin head of white that’s quickly gone. The aroma displays bracing acidity -- vinegar, green apple, a sweet cherry Jolly Rancher and apple juice backbone. This acidity doesn’t arrive on the tongue until the swallow, but when it does it’s a puckering, wake-you-up tartness. Some sweet, buttery caramel offers balance, and red apples are there again. It has the tartness of a Flemish red, but is lacking in the oaky complexity of the style’s better examples. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 9, 2015
12 oz can. Clear dark amber color with ivory head. Toasted caramel, nutty, mild bandaid aromas. Medium bodied. Medium tart toasted caramel, cherry, lemon flavors with bandages-----simple sour.

On tap at the Mayor. Appearance: finger pink white head, red copper color, cloudy, poor lacing. Aroma: tart funky fruit, caramel, light mettalic notes, very faint almost smokey aroma. Palate: oily texture, soft carbonation, light body. Taste: sweet caramel for a split second then on into puckering tartness that is overpowering, with a light note of smokiness. Overall, very unique, smokiness and oiliness are a bit off for me, but still very enjoyable. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2014
From a can into a wheat glass. Pours a nice brown. An inch or so of white fizzy head. Tart winey nose. Mouthfeel is light as it should be. Taste is sour. That's a good thing. It's also mineraly lemony winey and grape soday. Not much depth of flavor unfortunately. Decent but not good. Glad I tried it and a good price to boot.

Draft. From notes. This brew is quite sour. Tart and funky. Maybe a hint of woody oak in there. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Dark amber/light brown with an off-white head. Lots of sour dark fruits on the nose. Grape, black cherry, and raisin. A touch of plum, lots of red wine vinegar, and some caramel. Flavor is very, very acetic. A bit harsh, in fact. Light caramel sweetness, some grape, raisin, and plum. Red wine vinegar, solvent, and green apples.

Pours a deep brown color with almost no head.
The aroma is oaky in almost a veneered oak kind of way, the roastiness is light but noticeable with lots of funkyiness and just a touch of vinegar.
The flavor is tart and sour with a mild oakiness. Lightly fruity with some rich woodness. Very refreshing, very well put together, not overly complex with good control on the acetic character.
a great example of the style.
