Thanks, Jason.

Clear crimson body with a head that crackles away quickly. Smells strongly of bourbon and acetic acid, with an unpleasant metallic note that dissipates as the beer warms up. Vinegar seems dominant over the typical Cascade lacto character. Cherries are barely present on the nose. The palate is similar, very bourbon-heavy and rather sweet, with milder vinous notes and a hint of cherry. Stomach-churning acidity is pervasive and makes this beer a chore to drink after 2 or 3 oz. Pretty harsh and unrefined stuff, but not bad.

Great share from Al, missed you today bud. 4 oz. poured in an FFF Rastal on August 18th, 2012.

A - Dark brown coloring with slightly red hues. Virtually no head, retention, or lacing.

S - Natural and dominant cherry rinds. Light granny smith apple tartness, oak. Not too complex.

T - Quite sour with overripened cherry juice, vinegar, lime, and very lightly charred oak. Was this really in a whiskey barrel?

M - High carbonation, light body, pretty dry finish

D - I like this but im not blown away. The cherry is very natural and well done and reminds me of RR.

2012 on tap at brew pub. Ruddy chocolate brown with a few bubbles of tan head sticking to the snifter. Aromas of rich dark cherries, red wine and bourbon. Smells like a mouthful. Taste is quite sour. The sourness overpowers the flavors present. I get cherries and some woody bourbon but the sour acetic/citric acid notes overpower the rest. This takes away from my enjoyment. Mouthfeel is dry and and thin with a sour aftertaste.overall a sour buddy with a nice aroma that is overshadowed with sour.
