Bottle shared with koleminer20, because hes awesome. 2014 vintage. Aroma is wine barrel, tart cherry, funk, sour, real good. Appearance is amber red, off white head. Taste is cherry, wine barrel, sour, funk, very balanced and complex, man thats good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, crisp carbonation, lots of barrel and tart cherry, really really good. Overall, this is so very good. Hard to beat Russian River.

Prominent alcohol on the nose. Wine-like aroma. Fruity notes of cherries and dried fruit. Quite vinous. Some alcohol warmth. Dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle Batch 041514. Pours a hazy red/mercy color with no head. Big aroma of red wine, sour cherries, oak and tart apples. Body is medium with decent carb. Taste is up there with some of the belgian sour red/browns, fruity, oaky, vinous and some sweetness. Really good stuff.

Draft sample at the brewpub, Santa Rosa. Hazed dark orange / onion skin coloured pour with lasting fine off white head. Aroma is semi sweet plum jam, spicy funk hint of citrus, toffee, onion. Flavour is composed of tangy plum and apricot jam, some toffee, mellow sour, spicy. Palate is medium full, highish carbonation, spicy, dry finish. Lovely.

jinroh (1363) - ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2016
Slightly reddish, not much foam, just a thin film. Aroma is quite intense sour, berries still intact, bit of barnyard and funk but also sharp vinegar which I like. Taste has berries and also some wooden oak that is blending nicely. Flavours are clean and somewhat distinct. Bitterness is also there, blended with sour. Just great.

BYO @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Nice dry layered sour. Subtle, elegant. Aging works well, for a change...

Definitely is what it states. High sour vinegar scent with some tart bitters. Orange red color with a touch of hazy. Taste is harsh sour. Tart cherries and woodsy/mossy. The cherries are like pink/yellow ones that arent ripe. Palate makes your mouth pucker for sure. Tap
