Aroma: cherry fruity sourness, hint of pit, malty backing, slight touch of alcohol, hey and horse-blanket.CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Appearance: amber light brown , gentle haze Tanned fizzy mid top. Fine beading. 3+
Flavour/Palate: Medium light bodied. Cherry tartness with pit notes. Lemon hint. Solid , refreshing brew.
750ml bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany amber with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet caramel nose with a healthy amount of tart cherries. Starts with fine carbonation, but a somewhat thin body and light biscuity malty sweetness with a touch of brown sugar and light fruity tartness before a slightly drier and thinner, bland finish. This seems to be lacking the complexity and body I was expecting. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

Pours a murky brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of mild tart/sour cherries and hints of leather and funk. Flavor follows suit nice sweet/sour combo...fruitiness not as present. Mouthfeel is slightly thin and the finish is dry and a bit tart. Wish it was a bit more sour. Johnsense (1669) - - DEC 17, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Aged bottle from the cellar. Pours crimson/brown colour. Very little head (about a baby finger) but what is there laces. Dark fruits, a bit of funk, malt, some spices in the aroma and taste. Sweeter caramel malt. I remember this one being much better ages ago. Updated Dec 2015.

Bottle. Had this a while back. Rating noiw. What I remember is that it was a nice attempt of a sour, almost like rodenback then quickly fades to rubbing alcohol taste. Still had a sweet backtone, yet not the best but still pretty good 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Deep burnt caramel, heavy reddish hue, moderate to large finely bubbled head, slight pinkish hue
to it, fairly nice lacing.   Lovely Kriek like aroma, cherries, woodiness, seems a bit tart.   A bit tame on
the tongue, at least not as tart as I would have thought. &nbps By no means is this one sour.   Soft unsweetned
cherry like start, smidgen of dryness, another smidgen of wood character.   Lacks dryness and a tart/sour punch.
Seems too muted.   Aroma was nice, but on the tongue its rather dull.   The cherry aspect lingers from
start to finish, backside seems a little barnish and musty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Picks up a
bit more dryness after the flavors die off.   Decent, but I was hoping for a bit more tartness, a bit drier, and
just an overall KABOOM when it came to tasting it.   As is its okay, but a little muted.   If you dont want
your Sours too tart or too dry, this might be for you.   Its like a weak Duchess without sweetness.
Entertaining, but could be a bit better. wlajwl (6809) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Very tart, bordering on sour in aroma as well as some barnyard/mustiness. The flavor is tarty with a good but not overwhelming amount of cherry flavor that leads to a slightly dry finish. Good quality, the sourness was close to being too much, but not quite, otherwise this was pretty good. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2011

Appearance: Served up a very dark brown body, garnet at the far edges, and with no head, just a very thin, ivory-colored ring.
Smell: A first noted whiff of cola, sour cherry cola, to be a bit more precise, then notes of berry-accented wine, spice, toasted bread, and, as it warms, a hint of caramel.
Taste: Opens with a tartish sip of cherry-flavored cola, with a very faint toasted bread hint, and very, very faint roastiness. As it warms, a small bit of caramel is detected. Continued sour cherry character. Moderately acidic. Some papery traces. Light, spicy phenols scattered around. Thinning, watered down sour cherry cola on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Low carbonation.
Overall: It’s fine, I suppose, kinda light though, and reminded me a bit like a lighter, less interesting La Folie.
Pours a cherry cola with a fizzy head. Gentle sour aroma, some red wine, plums, and a decent malt profile. Flavor is lightly sour and tart, remarkably easy to drink. A pleasant sour.
