bottle thanks to Dcschiller, pours a dark purple with orange hues, thin white head with large bubbles. Aroma is tart cherry, red berry fruits, wood and barnyard wild funky yeast. Flavor is tart cherry skin, slight vinegar and vinous notes. Strong lingering berry in the finish with tart funk. Very well done.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Thanks to nimbleprop. Reddish brown pour with a small white head. Lactic raspberry seed, cherry juiciness, and very bright lactic acidity gives way to dark fruit juices and hints of must. Medium body with caressing pillowy effervescence.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 A solid, modestly acetic American sour that has some hints of cherries but doesnt really display a raspberry flavor. Still good, thanks for the share Smith4498! More raspberry aroma than in the past. Very good beer.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Ale Alpharetta. Got this in a recent trade and it did not let down. Fantastic in fact. Red/brown pour with minimal off white head. Smell is lots of cherries, sweet barrel, hints of vanilla. Taste is more cherries, lots of sweet vanilla/oak notes, other berries. Mild, smooth, medium tart. Just a simplistically good sour.

750 ml. corked n caged bottle- Pours crystal clear amber to red with a quickly dissipating 2 finger head that reduces to a collar and a few lively islands of foam. Aroma is tart cherries and raspberries, maybe a little funk, but that might be me just hoping. The taste is very tart, cherries and raspberries, and the real thing, not syrupy or imitation, unsweetened too. My one complaint is it is kind of one note, and I think it should be in the fruit lambic category, not sour ale/wild ale. Body is medium, carbonation is expectedly high. Overall I have to admit I was expecting more, the tartness is appealing, but a little brett or the oakiness being a little more prominent would have been nice.

Mortlach (2092) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2013
17/02/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Rossastra con riflessi arancia, schiuma leggerissima bianca che scompare immediatamente. Al naso sentori di frutta rossa, note citriche e acetiche, non un granch. In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, piuttosto sgraziata, con un acetico importante, non molto secca e pulita nel finale. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Non allaltezza delle aspettative.

GTAEgeek (2046) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a hazy orange, with almost no head. The aroma is bitter oranges, with some cherries and vanilla. Very sour, with some fruity sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, and a little clingy. Overall, this is a nice, fruity beer, but lacks the subtlety, balance, and body of a great sour ale.

TheHOFF43 (2046) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light red almost pink with no head and good carbonation. Aroma is wood, cherry and slight tartness. Flavor is tart cherries and finishes crisp. Not very sour but a nice beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2011
Courtesy of rayl101. Dark amber, no head. Dirty feet, light cherry, not much else. Light cherry in the flavor, light barnyard. Body/mouthfeel somewhat flimsy. Decent overall.

JDBaker11058 (2005) - Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Appearance: clear pour (initially) the color of sparkling grapefruit juice; quickly vanishing, fizzy pink head; extremely active carbonation jets rising like a reverse rainstorm, feeding a small puddle of fizzy bubbles on the surface. Aroma: brightly tart, with sour cherries and raspberries, a bit of pomegranate, nice oaky notes, with a low undertone of brett and worn leather. Taste: cherries and raspberries up front, sweet, tart and sour, with some light chocolate, vanilla, wood, and herbal notes. Finish: lightly dry, with a lingering, delicately sharp sour note that scrubs the tongue, leaving only a hint of stone fruit and a longing for the next sip. Notes: Gone all too quickly. A magnificent beer. Reminiscent flavor and aroma profile of a Rodenbach Grand Cru, but with a lighter, tarter, sharper body. Wonderful.
