It pours a clear ruby brown with a heat that quickly disappears. The smell is sour cherries, wood, leather, and delicious. Is delicious a smell? The taste is biscuity, sour cherries, and a really nice balanced dry but malty finish. Its the kind of taste that makes you thirsty for more. Mouthfeel is soft and very slightly carbonated. Overall this is fantastic. This is probably the best I've had of the style.

Review from memory, I think I sampled this about a year ago. Tart, cherries, grapes, vinegar. Dry mouthfeel with a very sour aftertaste. Very refreshing.

Very similar to the beer at Toronado. Even after a weekend full of sours, this was a good one.

Possibly clouded auburn colored beer. Head is a good sized pile of kahki colored tight foam which fades to a sheet and a ring. Sweet and tart cherries, light wood musk, interesting, unique floral, strawberries and cream, and a variety of other subtle aroma nuances. Taste is loaded with tart, acidic cherries, smooth woodiness, all sorts of fermented fruits, packed into a light fluid body. Carbonation is softly blended throughout. Pitted fruits and berries, all soaked in cherry juice and tangy. Mouthfeel is fantastically smooth.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky reddish brown. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Smells equally sweet as sour. Deep caramel and brown sugar. Vanilla. Red wine. Oak.

Taste - Tart up front. Cherry-like tartness and sweetness. Vanilla. Oak. Caramel sweetness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation and medium body. Maybe even medium heavy.

Overall - More sour than sweet, but it's still pretty sweet. I'd prefer a little less sugar, but it's still very nice.
