Poured from a 750ml bottle a deep mahogany with a very nice tan head and left great lacing. Aroma reminded me of black cherries, it had a vinous aroma, and a bit of apple cider vinager mixed in. Initial mouth feel is full of carbonation almost like drinking a brut champange. Flavor was like a cherry sweettart. It started out tart then in the finish you get the sweetness. I will drink more of this one.

Cerveza de color rojo rub con una cabeza de color beige. Aroma cido y fuerte como el aroma fermentado de una Gueuze. Sabor suave y exquisito al principio, termina con un regusto cido, muy complejo, que buena es esta cerveza.

Pours a clear, dark ruby with a very, very tall and pillowy head. Sweet vinegar or red wine aroma. Strong sour flavoring of bitter green apples. Mouthfeel is watery. Reminds me more of a very strongly flavored hard cider than beer. I can understand people who might like it, but its hard to get into the style.

Poured from bottle. Sour aroma of what I can not tell. Pours a dark brown with slightly off white head. Heavy sour taste. Medium body. Very sour, not really my type of beer.

this beer is definitely fun!!! winy, vinous aroma. the body looks like a coke or a pepsi without ice. the flavor was entertaining. one person tasted worcershire sauce, one soda, others including myself carbonated red wine. i really enjoyed this beer. the carbonation is just right, medium. the body is just acidic enough to clear the palate nicely. finishes with some dark fruit flavors, plums and some cherries, there is also a cidery aspect to this one, like a hard apple cider. a very nice drink, i think my girlfriend has a new favorite beer.

I love this style of beer! Sour cherries everywhere. It pours a very dark red/brown. Smells very acidic. A large white head foams leaving a small rim for the remander of the glass. Tastes of sour cherry, raw cranberries. Such a great style of beer.

Tap. Poured a deep red. Aroma of sourness and berries. Taste was a complex interplay of berries and oak balanced with mild sourness. Ultimately it finished with refreshing sweetness. Strong body.
