Smells great...promises a tart candy/cherry/apple flavor. Deep amber/brown color but lacking head. Its dry as shit. Its got a bit of a carbonic bite to it, that somewhat resembles some type of spice.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Complex aroma of vanilla, dark fruit and maybe some alcohol. Taste is complex, but nicely balanced between sour, sweet fruit, and oak/vanilla. Well executed with each of the elements playing off each other nicely.

madvike (3230) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bomber - Pours rosy and clear with a thin tan head. Nose is cherry tart, oaky, with a little caramelly sweetness. Taste has some caramel sweetness, smooth oak, and a lot of cherry tartness. Real soft and smooth in the mouth. Very pleased with how this aged.

Bomber shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a brownish red with an off white head, the aroma is all berry, a little funk and sourness is in there but the berries really come through, the flavor has a nice amount of cherry and raspberry like notes on the front end with a really soft mouthfeel and finish, not overpowering sour at all, actually pretty nice.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2013
bottle, berry brown color, berry forward aroma, medium oakiness. quite tart, blueberry, oak cuts slightly into berry tartness, far from a lip pucker but decent sour tartness. Enjoyable. Bought at Bruisin Ales, Asheville

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours ruby red with thin off white head. Great aroma of sweet tart cherries and blueberries, bit lactic creaminess, vanilla, oak. Taste presence tart and tangy berries, with known blueberries, lingering semi sweet tart berry, vanilla, oak. Lively mouthfeel. Hands down best New Holland beer I have had. Just lovely barrel touch, tart, nice palate, it has a lot going for it.

Bottle share thanks to Paul, has a dark reddish pour with a bit of head. Aroma of some barrel, bit of vinegar and some fruit. Taste was similar but a little lacking, too much vinegar for me.
Earlier Rating: 11/4/2012 Total Score: 3.7
Has an interesting citrus and spicy scent. Has a nice sour funk taste, doesnt have a big pucker, decent.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate sour cherry, light vinegar, lemon, and oak. It pours a transparent reddish-orange with a one finger off-white/beige head that settles fairly quickly to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sour cherry, lemon, and light vinegar. The finish has light-moderate vanilla and some faint oak. Its medium bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was really tasty and Im glad I finally picked this up after assuming it was the same beer year after year since 2009.

Draft. This is one of the best tasting sours I've had. Tastes if some chocolate candy at first than finishes nice and tart. Lovely beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
