3/5 rDev -33%
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.

Poured into a tulip. 2011 vintage.
3.75 A: Pours a deep plum color. Some yeasties hanging out at the bottom of the glass. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a half finger of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Well, this definitely has some cherries in it. Big, bold, beautiful cherries. Tart and delicious. I'm not detecting much bourbon at this point, but the barrel itself is quite present lending a soft tannic woodiness. Not much funk as this more showcases tartness and sour punches. Nice acetic acidity. Toastiness, mixed berries, sour plum, and a touch of lemon.
3.75 T: This pretty much mirrors the nose. Big, bold cherry. Moderate sour tanginess with plenty of tartness. Lemon, plum, black and blueberries. Toastiness, touch of neutral maltiness. Bit of earthy funk.
3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light spritziness. Super smooth with a tart finish.
4.00 D: Very good beer. Didn't get much bourbon, but that's probably a good thing since it didn't need any other flavors.
