Bottle from 2013, thanks to Felipe! Pours clear ruby chestnut, large tan head, creamy and slow to dissipate, nice lacing. Aroma is loads of cherry, oak tannin, lactose, cocoa, leather in the back. Flavor is medium tart, light funk, lots of cherry in great balance with the base beer. Medium body. Well done indeed.

adnielsen (10580) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle @ home, acquired via the Broery Snob Society back in 2013. Pours a deep brown appearance with a thin brown head. Aroma has really nice wild sour cherries along with some vinegar, oak, vanilla, and more wild cherries. Highly sour which covers the high boost a bit. Low sweetness and bitterness. Brown sugar, cola, vinegar, cinnamon, leather, incredibly acidic, wild cherry flavor. This shit peels the paint off my teeth. It tastes pretty good but my fucking god, its sour. Im really split on this beer. Its far too sour for anyone with an outside life but it does have a really tasty wilde cherry flavor. Good in small amounts. Not so great drinking a full 750 by yourself.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2016
A steady pour produces a one-finger thick, dark amber / tan colored head. The beer is a rich brown color that shows a clear, deep ruby hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells tart, a little bit like vinegar, a soft tart cherry character, a toasted oak note that contributes a nutty note and accentuates a dark malty note. There is a definite sherry-like oxidation here, that also accentuates the nutty note in the nose, and the cherry character becomes a touch more noticeable as the beer warms up.

Tart up front, and even more mouth puckering as it moves towards the finish, there is also an earthy, woody oak character in the finish that adds some structure to the body with its tannins. Up front there is a soft, sweet (really more suggested than actually sweet) cherry character, while the middle has an earthy, tart, bright cherry note that at times can meld into the tartness of the base beer as there is very little / no residual sweetness in this beer. There is a oral-nasal, floral cherry note that hits the palate if you breath in while taking a sip. There is a soft nuttiness here, and a touch of dry sherry, both from a soft oxidation / aged malt character.

This beer is quite sour, which is certainly nice if you like that sort of thing; luckily I do. It could use a touch more malty depth to it, but I like that the cherry character is not overwhelming, but still noticeable. A nice beer that certainly hits the spot if you are in for something quite sour.
