On tap @ GABF. Amber pour with an off-white head. Light acetic tartness along with some lemon, cherry, and red grapes. Nice fruit, some grass, apple, and a touch of caramel. Good cherry flavor, some tart vinegar, lemon, and grape. A mild grass note and caramel sweetness. djd07 (16317) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2015

Tart cherriness, vinegar, sour, funk, it isn’t over the top but a nice sweetish red. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Can shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a clear amber brown with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is quite acidic with very sour cherry and some sweet grains backing. Flavor has sweet grains and very sour fruits with a good amount of acid that is a touch overwhelming. shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Aluminum bottle (filled to the brim). Mixture of lactic acid, apple cider vinegar, and cherry aroma. Ruby amber with minimal head. Sweet-tart cherry malt and light sour milk and horseblanket flavor. Nice body. Very pleasant - "Its like I’m wearing nothing at all!"

Can... Pours lightly hazy and burnt orange with no head. The bouquet furnishes funky cheese, sweaty socks and sour cherries with a light note of caramel. Full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is deeply tart and moderately acetic, flanked by a nice element of toasted oak. Well-balanced overall. No detectible bitterness. The mildly sweet, fairly tart finish leaves an aftertaste of buttery diacetyl that doesn’t really hurt my feelings all that much.

16 oz can shared by DanielCoor. Pours a clear golden brown color with a thin white film. The aroma is tart cherry, vinegar, sweet malts, vanilla, lactic with some oak character. The flavor is much of the same; tart cherry, caramel, vinegar, acidic, lactic with some oak. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Sample from the can. Amber color. Flavors of balsamic, fresh oak barrels, light tart fruit notes. Good sour punch on the finish. phaleslu (10907) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2013
16 oz. aluminum bottle shared by DanielCoor- thanks! Pours a hazed amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of thick butter, vanilla, brown sugar, cheese, melon, and berries. Flavor is marginally better, but still sweet and buttery, with vanilla, sour candy, berry fruits, and some funk. Sweet and sour, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. What a mess. Didn’t work at all. Had this right after CIB Cheri Tart, and this was no better. cubs (10742) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a dark orange appearance with a light tan head. Aroma seemed fine with some light vinegar, dark fruits, and black cherries. Unfortunately, I got a bunch of butter in the flavor with just ruined the flavor for me. Strangely enough, none of the other ratings from GABF noted this, which makes me wonder if my pour was from a separate keg or my senses were just off.
