Bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a dark hazy reddish brown color with a large fizzy beige head. The aroma is acidic, sour cherries, berries, brown sugar, citrus and a little yeast funk. The flavor is not so much sour as acidic and tart. Cherry and lemon citrus, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla and alcohol. This has strong carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Good beer.

Old rating.. and it was indeed the 12. Poured clear ruby-amber with a light dusting of off-white head. The aroma picked up tangy cherry skins, oak, and slightly musty cherry meat.. nice balance. The flavor was sour and acidic throughout, with cherry skins and oak leading.. not much support on the middle.. grainy residual sugars and oak plus more cherries on the finish. Light-medium bodied and slick on the palate.. sourness was a little harsh at times.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to dcschiller. Bright berry, tart, dusty, toffee, slight floral, acidic. Very good.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a gray head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a combination of earthy funk, light sour fruits with a bit of underlying acid and a strong oak backbone. Flavor starts with has more sour fruits up front with a growing earthy oak note that is quite strong through the finish.

Tmoney99 (14189) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark ruby color with a minimal fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart berry flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

I'm at the bar and don't have time to rate this beer fully, but it's a good sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Clear amber brown color, small off white head. Aroma of vanilla, prunes, dates. Taste is smooth and softly sour with lots of dark fruits. Good character and complexity.

I thought this was going to be super sour, but the flavor is pretty light. I do like it, though. Slightly fruity, lots of oak, some floral.
