Dark brown with cherry hues, a loose, scattered light tan foam. Smells of wood, vanilla, some sweet cream - nothing like a wild of any kind... Flavor is tart, acetic, metallic, some oak, mostly tart metal here -poor showing. Medium bodied with loose, moderate carb and a dry finish. A really disappointing offering.

20 anny blend.

A firm pour produces a nice fizzy head but with most fizzy heads it falls rather quick. The color is a deep dark amber so we're about right for the "sour brown ale" that the brewer claims.

A very acidic nose with some cherries and perhaps some brown sugar.

Very acidic but in a more makes your stomach burn vs puckering sour. A lot of tart cherry impact here as well.

A reasonably easy to drink sour, nothing too big, or too fizzy. Still the level of acidity here is a bit too high. It makes it hard to drink.

I've gotta give a big thumbs down for this one. It lacks complexity and just hits you over the head with acid. There just isn't anything going on in here to make this beer something beyond an excuse to drink something sour....which I guess isn't that bad.

Uinta has never steered me wrong and I have enjoyed cherry beers over the years. This can't miss, right?
Pours a rose color. Lots of foam, immediate lacing.
Uh oh...the nose starts off like tart cherries, and then heads into bile and butyric acid territory. It's tough to get past and it reminds me of a ruined ultra-ripe cheese. I like funky yeast beers, but this is one of those that's just plain flawed. Funky and "vomit" are very, very different to me.
The flavor doesn't necessarily have that horrible character, but the cherry flavors are almost artificial tasting and they don't blend with the citric notes from the yeast. The finish has a rough bitterness that some wild beers take on, too.
I wanted to like this and I was excited when I saw it, but man...it's a dud.

This beer pours a pinkish red color, with a thick, fluffy, pikkish whie head. The head fades very slowly, leaving little lace.

This beer smells very funky. Earthy yeast and grainy funk. It is not overly pleasent. I can detect a slight tart cherry aroma as well. My original excitement is going down.

This beer is cloyingly yeasty and funky. Earthy and grainy. Behind that I get a hint of sweet and tart cherry, but it is hard to enjoy over the funk.

This beer is highly carbonated, fitting the style. It leaves a funky earthy aftertaste, with just a touch of tartness.

This beer wouldnt make a good session beer. It just dosnet taste right for the style.

Overall: I love wild ales, and I love cherries. The more sour the better. I also like funky beers, and long as there is more complexity to it than just funk. This beer didnt do the best job of balancing this. Maybe more cherry tartness would have rounded it out better.
