This was the third beer in our Snobs United Tasting Last Night.
It poured a Murky Red/Brown with a filmy head made of medium bubbles.
The body on this was the thinnest of the night, even though it still matched up in alcohol to most of the others.
Aromas come out mostly of Cherries, but lots of other berries come to mind including Blackberries & Raspberries. Medium Tartness and Acidity detected.
Sharp acidic bite on the first sip dips slowly until the palate gets used to the tartness and it comes across more as a mild to medium sour tone. Lots of fruit as mentioned, some darker malts and a decent amount of sweetness.
The highest rated of the 5 according to this website, but all of us agree this was in last place.
Still in all a very good beer and I'm glad I still have a few more!

Poured into an over-sized wine glass. Dark brown with a raspberry tint. Evocative notes of blackberries comes forward immediately. Allowing the smell to linger a bit, you'll find a touch of the barrel underneath the berry bomb. Very pretty in appearance and smell.
Slightly acidic with a balsamic note. Sour and funky, but fruity and complex. Lots of berry notes (including the clearly advertised blackberry and cherry). As it warms and opens up in the glass a bit, I do catch more malt notes, including caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is pretty light and head retention is good. Carbonation is spot on for the intensity of flavor and helps the palate process the sour and fruit notes.
Makes my mouth water. All in all, a very nice sour. And damn, I am craving a nice beef or lamb stew to demolish with this.
