Well, this is a pretty beer, kind of a cloudy red-amber with a nice head. Smell was interesting, though a bit metallic and sour, with yeasty notes. The flavor was about as odd as I have ever had. Sour, with a tart cherry flavor and an astringent quality. Perhaps paired with something that would complement or offset this it would be better, but as a stand-alone beverage it was nearly undrinkable. I could not finish the bottle. Definitely an acquired taste I have not acquired. Finish was somewhat metallic, too. The beer felt unbalanced--there wasn't enough sweetness or bitterness to offset the sourness, and the metallic off-taste was unpleasant, too. I think I will use the other two bottles in the variety pack to marinate something; maybe a duck.

12 oz bottle best by date July 2010
Purchased in 2010 did not like it back then. Had one bottle left and a have been avoiding it ever sense. Tired of looking at it in the back of the fridge and decided to open it for fun. Poured a dirty amber with a decent off white head. Noticed a few particles of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The intrepid first sip was a surprise, nice mouthfeel and good carbonation. This tasted like sour or lambic with some nice cherry notes. I thought this was going to be a drain pour, but it turned out to be pretty good. I'm not sure what matured, the beer or my taste?
