A: Ruby red, purplish color, and with no carbonation.
S: Sour Dark fruits, cherries and plums
T: Sour cherries, lemons, limes, with hints of oak.
M: tartness, but overall enjoyable.
O: This is only my second tart beer. (1st Cuvée Freddy). Sour beers are such a shock to my taste buds and mind that I can't even say with conviction that I like the taste. It's unique. And I don't hate it.

A: Dark purple tinted ruby red and dark enough to be opaque with a light mocha, almost gray, head.

S: Dark tart cherries, oak, dark fruit, red berries in the nose.

T: Sour cherries, oak, raspberry, mellow and very drinkable, especially for a sour.

M: Medium bodied and neither smooth nor harsh with carbonation.

O: An excellent tart beer. The oak flavor really plays well with the tart fruits.

Appearance is brown in color supporting a crisp dissipating head. Smell of prominant fruity sour with some wild yeast and oaky aromas. Taste has a very nice balance of sweet and sour with the yeast and woody oak. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation. Not much on sours, but one of the better sours I've tried.
