Pours a gorgeous grapefruit pink with a thin white head that fades quickly. Funky sour aromas fill the room as soon as the cork is popped - mouth starts watering. Aromas are pretty damn fantastic sour cherry skins, funky wet, acetic, it's very complex. The cherries are surprisingly delicate in the flavor, you really have to look for them but they add an amazing color and complexity, deliciously deep sour. Acidity is perfect, just enough to not ignore but not so much that it hits you in the jowls.

One of the most well-rounded sours I've ever had, blew my mind.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #57 (October 2011):

Insane aroma of fresh cherry cobbler. How is this possible? Magic?! We can smell the alcohol, but it’s not overly boozy; less than a hint of warmth. A slice of epic in a bottle! Proof that spontaneous fermentation can be harnessed by an american brewer, and brought to this level of greatness.

LOOK: Dirty peach

SMELL: Musty cherries, pie crust, spice, esters

TASTE: Dry, semi-tart, oaky, sour cherries, lemon, vinous, herbal, hay, medicinal

Notes from 8/5. Poured into a snifter.

A: Ruby-red grapefruit body. Zero head and little lacing.

S: Vinegar upfront. Sweet and sour cherry (like a cherry warhead) with a touch of oak to round it out.

T: Sweet, tart cherry moves to slight vinegar followed by puckering sourness. A little bit of oak in the finish evens everything out.

M: Light, clean finish. Low carbonation.

O: Initially, the smells and flavors coming from this beer were overwhelming. After the first couple sips my nose and taste buds adjusted. Absolutely delicious.
