Pours a brown with a reddish tint. Smells like a big red wine with buttery oak. First sip hits you with mixed berries and oak barrels. This beer toes the line of beer and wine since the carbonation is light. I felt like I needed to let this one breathe a bit before enjoying it.

Pours copper, clear with a little haze. Sour, malty aroma features scents of apple cider and purple grape. Really pleasant smell. Tart, sour taste. Lemon juice. Bitter. Metallic. Fresh, kettle-style sour mixed with a substantial, barrel-aged quality. Perfectly executed. Frothy in the palate. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Where and how : mini tasting, bottle Vintage xxxml
Aroma 7.2 /10
Plenty of barrel character that clashes with brett yeast. A bit of mess. Fruity cherry on side.
Appearance 3/5
Top: smaller fizzy of white top.
Base: dark amber.
Palate medium bodied, low carbonation, very long finish3/5
Taste complex, clash of barrel, sour cherry and yeast. Mild alcohol notes. I fail to see the greatness of this beer. Creative mess ?

Beautiful complex stone fruit-mostly cherries-on the nose, true sourness on the palate. I'd like a touch more sweetness-and maybe alcohol to balance the sourness, but hard to complain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Russian River, Santa Rosa. Aroma is huge Bretty barnyard funk, fruits, oak, wine, pinot barrels, tart cherries, malt, apricot, tart red fruits. Flavour is tart and medium sour. Body is medium. Amazing balance and drinkability. Superb American Sour, world class status well-deserved. Incredible, I wish I had bought more bottles!

That rotten smell which makes sours good tasting. Cherry flavor is evident. High carbonation dark amber color. Very nice John L - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy ruby-brown pour with a tall off-white head. Notes of sour cherries, mould, brett bitterness, lactic acid, red wine, grape skin, grape vinegar, raw almonds. Medium body and carbonation, a bit too syrupy for a sour beer, with a bitter, musty finish.

Red. Sour. Really polished. Cherries. Kinda reminds me of a tart apples plus cherry soda.

Sours are still a bit of a mystery to me. It’s hard to describe all I perceive; taste, smell etc... All I can say is this is very enjoyable to drink.
