COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Dark and cola-like in appearance with a thick, fluffy head. Aroma is tangy and complex with strong hints of dark cherry, chocolate, and raspberry. Malt, citric acid, and just a bit of tobacco predominate in this exceedingly New Glarus fruit beer-esque brew. The finish is long and quite pleasant. Would be a great accompaniment to a milder washed rind cheese like Pere Joseph or Pont lEveque.

Draft at Flatbread, Awesome slight sour cherry aroma with a flavor to match. This is a well balanced sour ale.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JUN 3, 2008
pours a dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. smells of wood and cherries. The flavor is extremely sour and tart, hits you with a slight burn, i cant really explain it, its kind of wild! Highly recommend!

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
On tap at Beachwood (a while ago) and also in a bottle found at a BevMo. Deliciously acute sour flavour. Interestingly fruity without really having a specific fruit flavour present. Complex and really indescribable.

Sandman2222 (42) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
750ml bottle Aroma- sweet, and sticky Appearance- Full rich and a dark Ruby red Flavor- Sour (beyond belief), cherry, citric, and very acidic. Palate- Soft round taste, followed by a sharp jolt of sourness. Overall- Amazingly good. The sourness is what gives it its amazing flavour, texture, and a good beer to start the evening off with.

Amber brown pour with a decent head. Sour fruit smell. Flavor is nice and big and granulated sugar like. Not bad and actually almost comforting like a dessert.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle 33cl. Really nice red color with a mini head. Aroma is really fruity with cherry and oak. Taste is sour and lots of cherry and oak and plenty of acidity. Really good!

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2008
A reddish beer with a vaguely brown head. Aroma is fruity with cherry and port dominating. The flavour is PANG, straght forward fruity and sour with a very balanced funky flavour. Really good with loads of port character and a great aging potential.

Draft. Ill admit sweet beer isnt my thing but I found this to be very interesting. I really liked the flavor of cherry with a mildly sour finish. Enjoyable.
