Pours with a one finger head that quickly disappears. No retention or lacing. Faint reddish pink hue reminiscent of grapefruit juice.

Slightly artificial aroma. Cherries are present on the nose, and a straw/barnyard/sweaty sock aroma is evident from the brett. Slightly medicinal/chemical aroma.

Nice cherry flavor on the front end, midpalate is too sweet and medicinal, finishes with a hint of funk.

Fine carbonation; very effervescent. A little syrupy. Overall, good mouthfeel.

Overall, a decent effort - nowhere near as good as blackberry or blueberry, in my opinion. Will be interesting to see how this develops at the fruit character dies down a little. Should improve as the brett dries this out.

Hazy cranberry with a pink fizzy head. Active carbonation.

Sweet and tart cherry aroma. Vinegar. Cranberry.

Whoa buddy is it sour. Ludens cherry cough drops and cider vinegar. The finish is extremely tart and puckers the taste buds.

Thin but prickly mouthfeel. The sour really toughs the tongue up.

I found it very enjoyable but not complex with the flavors. It really pushes the boundaries of being too sour.

Bottle poured into an Upland bell tulip, a deep burgundy color, with a full inch of pinkish-purple head, which quickly fizzled down, settling at a mid-sized ringlet; thin lacing on the glass, and a steady stream of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom. Heavy cherry aroma, acidic, lots of lacto tartness, vinegar, red wine. There seem to be mixed reports on this beer, especially in the sourness department, but this bottle at least was VERY sour. Intense blast of tartness in the taste, sour cherries, acetic acid, lemon, tannins, notes of leather, red licorice, and I even picked up a subtle touch of cocoa, strange as it seems. Tart up front, tart in the finish. Medium body, crisp, prickly mouthfeel, and if I didn't say it before: very tart. No problems with this bottle, it's a very good sour overall, though I'm on duty to conquer this whole bottle myself tonight, so I'd better break out the Tums.

Another one to try thanks to Tom P.

Mostly clear orange color, little fizzy head.

Nose nice sour cherry, little candied cherry, mild tart sour, light but nice funk,

Taste mostly juicy cherry, little tart sour cherry, fairly sour, little acidic bite, fairly bland overall though, doesn't seem to have a lot going on.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb, little acidic.
