Thanks to eyebereej for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Cigar City snifter.
A: Pours a burnished reddish copper, hazy, with a thin white head that fades quickly. There are some floaters amidst medium level of visible carbonation.
S: Sour cherries, tart underripe berries, oak, some funk, and a tad vinous. Nice.
T: Tart cherries, funk, oak tannins, sour, tart blackberries, pink wine character, and lactic tartness on the finish, which remains fairly dry. Some acetic character, which increases as the beer warms.
M: Medium body, adequate carbonation sensation, and a bit of alcohol burn but not at all hot.
O: Tasty, and definitely nails the mark with big tart cherry flavor. I was a little surprised that the wine barrel character was only a bit player in this show. But still, very tasty. Recommended.

A: poured into a snifter to a deep amber with a small white head that quickly fades to nothingness
S: smells of sour cherries, vanilla, oak, and funk
T: taste brings a huge smack of sourness on the palate with some cherry flavors, hints of oak and vanilla and a slight funkyness. swallow is more sourness with some vanilla, oak and some sweetness
M: Medium in the mouth with good effervescent carbonation that keeps things lively and a drying finish
O: Overall, this beer is exceptional. It's hellactiously sour but the flavors of the beer do manage to poke through.

A-Clear reddish orange, not much carbonation, or head.
S-Good deal of funk, oak and cherries, some grassy notes as well.
T-Starts with semi-sweet cherries then in the finish good balance with the oak notes and a nice fruity sourness.
M-Lighter in body, not much carbonation, definitely some sour notes.
O-The balance was rather good, a solid sour. It could have used more complexity but the flavors that were there were good and balanced together.
