4.25/5  rDev -1.8%

Been waiting to try this one for a while.

A: The pour was bright cherry/pink/red with a massive pink head, about 2.5 fingers in height. Decent retention, reducing down to a thing layer of foamy bubbles on top. Little bits of lacing stick to the glass.

S: Lots of tart cherries, the aroma intensifies as the beer warms up. It was a bit closed when I first poured it, but at the end was very fragrant.

T: Tart cherry, a little bit of cork, and a little bit of barnyard funk, but the cherries really dominate, with not much else going on.

M: Light to medium bodied, nice carbonation. Slightly mouth puckering, but not overly sour.

O: A little bit of a let down. Its good, but I was expecting a more powerful and complex flavor profile and maybe a bit more sourness.

Wow, this beer is a real onslaught to the senses. Pours a murky cherry with a fluffy pink head and nominal lacing. The nose here is incredible. Lots of funk. Huge horse blanket and barn floor qualities. The big cherry and tartness qualities come through but the funk is HUGE. The cherries play a much larger role on the palate with the tartness coming through on the front and lingering in the finish. The funk is definitely there but nowhere near as pronounced as on the nose. Split a bottle with a friend, which is probably just enough. The first glass is ridiculous.

Appearance: Slightly cloudy medium red color with pink overtones. Fairly large light pink head that dissipated quickly. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Mild funk, tart cherries and some citrus notes.

Taste: Sour cherries, a touch of funk, and a slight black pepper-like spiciness. I also get some citrus notes. The beer finishes fairly dry.

Mouth-feel: Fairly light bodied with a fairly brisk level of carbonation.

Overall: Good sour.
