3.53/5 rDev -9%
Pours a deep reddish amber color, opaque cloudy. The bottle gushed quite a bit, and the beer initially had a big fizzy head. The bubbles dissipated quickly, leaving behind no lacing and just a very thin ring. The aroma has brett funk and dull malt on top of the mix of citric floral flavors. It doesn't really come together and everything is a bit drab. The brett flavor is the best part and lends some nice tropical fruit and earthy, spicy flavors. The taste is quite similar. Nice funk but the beer just seems washed out to me. It's lightly tart and quite dry. The fruit and floral flavors come out some but they have little depth. It's all just a bit too clean. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is a bit fizzy. This review feels somewhat harsh. I actually mostly like the beer, but the flavors are just sorta shallow. I think it really could have used some bacteria in the mix.

Enjoyed this in the line at Crooked Stave on Sunday.
Appears a peachy red color that quickly has some sediment sink to the bottom. The color has a mysterious mirky tint, that I thought really resembled what I thought this beer might be like.
Smell was the highlight for me of this brew. I found the aroma to be cherry, which is ironic since that isnt in the bottle. The rose aroma came through loud and clear to me.
Taste was a little disappointing, but still strong for a beer with this age on it. Cherry, nuts, perfume, cranberry, and nutmeg were the flavors I took the most. Just a hint of spice, which I really, really liked.
Overall, a nice brew. I would have loved to try this fresh. Worth trying if you like cherry sours!
