A-Pours a dark cherry with a white head that dissipates quickly. Not much lacing or cascading.

S-tart, cherries, hint of sour apple

T-much like the nose as it is tart and sour with flavors of cherry with a hint of oak, and some graham cracker in the finish. It has a great flavor, maybe not as complex as I expected, but its a very full flavored ale that is truly delicious.

M-While its not that thick and has a good amount of carbonation, it has a full mouthfeel

D-I could drink this just about all day. It is delicious and refreshing.

Overall, this was a great experience and would love to drink it again. (612 characters)

Very similar to the beer at Toronado. Even after a weekend full of sours, this was a good one. (94 characters)

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. (532 characters)

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. (499 characters)
