Bottle. Pours out an odd reddish color with a big, fluffy well carbonated, mostly white head. Aroma is of cough syrup, cherry seltzer, mild tartness. Taste is light bodied, cherries, light tartness, some medicinal notes, lingering tartness. Meh.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a red copper with a nice one inch off red head that lasts. Has lots of carbonation. Taste is of sour cherries. Has a slightly thin body with a tart and sour finish. Not the hardest beer to drink, but tastes of an infected beer rather than a sour. Overpriced and overrated for what it is. VsXsV (4437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Hazy, dark cherry red liquid with medium to big pink head, Aroma of werid cherries, wood, cereal/grain, sour apples and caramel. A bit weird. Taste is dry and medium sour with light bitterness. Quite werid with some cherry notes. Doesn’t work to well. Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. j12601 (11573) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle I found in Jersey with Paul, and shared with Lauren and Mike. Pours a hazed ruby with a medium sized white head. Sour malt, cherry and fruit. Funk and musk. Medium bodied, cherry and acid. A touch of paper and light sweetness. Cherry, tart acid. Paper again, but really the only bothersome thing about it. Long funk on the finish, tart cherry and lactic acid. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2012
20120716 750ml bottle, don’t recall where from, brewed 3/12. Auburn color with lightly pink head that quickly fizzles out. Aroma is twiggy, nice subtle cherry, almond. Pleasant acidity, but could stand for a little more balance, maybe even a slight sweetness, and the body is just about nil. Enjoyed it more with further sips and as it warmed, but it never did evolve much, I think the tartness just became more palatable.

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby red with a near white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has light sour red fruit with a good amount of sweet grain and a hint of cough syrup. Flavor has similar some what cough strip sour red fruit note with backing sweet grain. tmoreau (4363) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Shared 750 ml. bottle at Lunar Brewing Co. during a lull in the July 4th squirt gun wars. Thanks, Jack! Poured to snifters with a bright, rosey/ruby color, white head foam that reduced better than gradually to a ring & film, and left some spots & streaks of lacing on the glass. The nose was simply tart and expressive cherry. The flavor added a touch of sweetness, but was mainly sour cherry, with a light body and dry finish. Refreshingly effervescent, but one dimensional. hivemind (914) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle in Weehawk courtesy of Paul on the 4th. Pours dark red with pinkish head. Aroma is pretty weak and the palate is kind of modest as well. More tart than sour with notes of cherry or strawberry. Not as much dark fruit as I like in a sour, but this wasn’t all that bad. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Pours carbonated ruby with a huge pinkish head that dies down reasonably fast. Smell is stale tart cherry and a bit medicinal. Taste is slightly tart, fruity, cherry, cranberry, bitter finish. Kind of reminded me a bit of vomit. Not so good. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle. Ruby beer with a pinkish head. Cherry and dusty aroma. Cherry and tart flavor with light malt. Medium bodied. Cherry and tartness lingers with light earth and light grain.
