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.

From Stone Sour class taught by Tomme Arthur. (I lost my notes so this is to the best of my memory.) Strong sour ale colored deep red with light head. Tastes of cherries but also a rich, malty fruit I can’t put my finger on. Very interesting aroma and aftertaste. I think it has something to do with the aging in oak barrels. Very rich and strong. Quite good.

Bottle thanks to Ughsmash. Brownish red with a medium fluffy off-white dissipating head. Aroma of paint thinner, sourness, mild cherry and mild oak. Taste is massively sour and dry throughout with a sour finish. Some of the oak character does come out but it only gets me thinking how I’m not a big fan of things aged in barrels, I don’t get the fascination. At least this one wasn’t a whiskey barrel.

Pours dark red with a small of white head. Nose is full of sweetened red fruits, cherries and raspberries mainly(think berry compote). Palate is chock full of liquered morello cherries with substantial tart dryness on the finish. A killer dessert beer!!

Pours a dark red with a decent head. Flavor is full of tartness, with a symphony of medium malts and dark fruits just behind it. Really a great beer, on par with Duchess de Borgogne, one of my favorite beers. If you like sour ales, you have to try this one.

11.2 oz bottle-cloudy red color w/a very slight white head & good lacing. Sour cherry aroma. Sour, tart flavor of cherries, currents, & dark fruit. This one was a little intense; I wouldn’t drink it all the time, but it was a nice change of pace. NIce after dinner sipper. Long carbonated finish.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
On tap at Luka’s in Oakland. Pours a dark, murky red with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour, oak, cherries, some vanilla and caramel as well. Taste is sour at first and a bit sweet and watery in the finish. Currants and sour cherries. Odd mouthfeel of syrupyness with some fizz.

I really don’t like this beer. The taste of cherries and currants is far too strong and so is the acidity. The aroma is equally as distasteful as the taste. It looks like coca cola and I personally think coke tastes better I’d rate it lower but I didn’t want to get into the Bud Light territory

smaller bottle. Pours a deep dull mahogany color with some amber highlights. Little to no head, though what is there leaves a decent ring throughout. Aromas of heavy syrupy sweetness and sour acidic cherry notes. Flavor starts with a big smack of fruity tartness- cherries stand out. The tart notes are very heavy, but not as aggressive as lambic sourness. Underlying sweetness works well, ensuring the brew isn’t overpowering on the tart notes. Very full bodied and full flavored on the palate, with a suprisingly clean finish given the body and tartness. A good summertime sipping beer, ideal for those mid afternoon times when one wants a brew but needs to continue with household chores.

TaxiDriver (1776) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle. Heavy dark red wine, light acidic. Really something special. Small white foamy head, fast diminishing. Dark red clear body. Heavy acidic with a hint of sweetness, long duration. Medium body, very dry, soft carbonation. Nice acidic one!
