Appearance: Poured into a tulip is a dark mahogany colored beer with an off white head around two fingers thick.
Aroma: Sour cherries with notes of tartness. Oakiness, faint plum.
Taste: Lots of tart cherries, oak, minor malt sweetness with a touch of lime. It's mostly sour with a light dry mouthfeel.
Notes: Quite drinkiable and a straight forward a solid wild ale. Cheers.

I have had this beer at inception at Sam Adams brewery in Boston and now after 18 months aging in my cellar. Very hard to find ATM but if you ask around you can find a bottle.
It is a top notch beer. The cherry flavor only hits the back of your tongue but when it does it's pronounced.
The rest of the beer is flavorful enough that you do not notice the alcohol.
Well done Mr. Koch!

750ml bottle. Pours red with a short lived, frosty, white head. Aroma is of sour wine, funky yeast, cherry, hints of caramel. Body is full, crisp and creamy. Cherry, caramel, yeast, woody and vanilla notes fill the mouth. Finish is short, semi-sweet. On a sweet side, but very pleasant brew I liked.

A: Brownish red. Hazy.
S: Hints of oak and cherry but nothing really too spectacular that comes through.
T: There is some oak and there is some cherry but neither one is overly prevalent. There is also some yeast taste as well. I was really looking for more of the cherry flavor to come through.
M: Sits like an average beer, pretty drinkable.
Overall an above average beer but nothing spectacular. The fruit flavors are on par with the oakyness so there isn't really a goal that I see for this beer as it tries to combine two flavors but does not succeed.
