750 ml bottle. Pours dark reddish amber with a big fluffy reddish tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is woody cherry with some acidic dry tartness. A little band-aid comes out as it warms.

The flavor is sweet and tart cherries with some vinous alcohol and an acidic dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, a nice sour. I like the subtle sour and cherry, but it's a little thin and too dry and acidic for me. The longer it sits, the more band-aid notes come out.

Very excited to try Funkwerks' first stab at a barrel-aged sour. Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

Color is a very dark brown with a hue of ruby/auburn. Head is fantastic, it has good carbonation. It died down after a few minutes.
Smell is of the lacto and brett bacteria, not a hint of alcohol and the malts and dark cherry shine through at the end.
Taste is very similar to the smell, I get the black cherries and tart at first. Not overly tart which I'm a little bummed about. However the balance with the malts is very good, this isn't one-dimensional. Where it lacks in sour it makes up for it's complexity but I still crave more sour.
Mouthfeel is satisfying, a nice carbonation. I could probably drink a whole bottle by myself - excellent drinkability.
Overall I'm extremely bummed I didn't get another one of these to see how it ages. But I'm licking my chops to see what Funkwerks can do with their next attempt at a barrel-aged sour.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tulip, the beer is a ruby brown coloring, with a tan halo of head. Nose of dark cherry, oak, old world fruit, booze, and tart sweetness. Flavors are tangy caramel, tart cherry, merlot characteristics, woody highlights, and a subtle acidic note. Robust and full-bodied. The aftertaste is tart cherry all over, with some merlot and cabarnet notes, with a dry, lingering, tart finish. Heavy brew.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 6/24/13.

Pours a hazy copper with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a pleasant sourness all around.

Pours a brown with a mahogany hue and a khaki head, that leaves very nice lacing on sides. Aroma offers some pomegranate and plum, some vinegar, coffee cake, caramel, and woody. Flavor starts off with the dark fruits which is then disrupted by some vinegar, there's also some caramel and brown sugar, a good does of some breadiness, and it closes out with the woodiness that offers a little bitter in the finish. More mildy sour than moderate. A fuller, heavy mouthfeel. Overall, Funkwerks with another winner. Would definitely drink this again.
