Bottled in 2013: (personal temp notes)
Pours a deep red, with available carbonation, but little sustaining power
Smell is like a cardboard box of dried cherries, almost wine-like, but more tart
Taste is more like a lemon shot, any cherry taste lost in the sourness, but that is fine with me. In the end (which comes fairly quickly), there is a light tart cherry flavor, but you almost have to be looking for it.

I like the sour bite, but the beer ends a little quickly when cold. The warmer it gets, the longer the taste draws out, like a dry red wine.

On draft at Gingerman NYC. Crimson color, with a bit of a pink head. Head disappears to a thing ring quickly.

Sour cherry notes up front. Earthy notes, with a bit of perfume. A bit funky and earthy.

Not much sweetness up front. Subtle sour cherry notes, and a bit heavier on the earthy and funky notes. Quite dry at the finish.

Lighter body, carbonation is very smooth. Alcohol is a non-factor. Not bad.

On tap at the Trapp Door in Upper Milford Township, PA.

10oz pour in a snifter. Apperance is very murky and deep- almost like a cloudy maroon wine with a thin white head. Carbonation is visible. The aroma is astounding- funky, vinous, sour cherry. The taste is like a *POW* *WHAM* *PUNCH* of glorious sour funk... very tart. The mouthfeel is moderately thin, smooth on the finish. Overall a very good brew I would have more often if it were more ubiquitous.

A: Pours a clear ruby with a thin white mousse.

S: Aromas of cider vinegar, pomegranate, and tart cherries are immediately noticeable.

T: A sharp, tannic entry reveals notes of tart cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, oak, leather, gooseberry, and cider vinegar. The finish is extremely tart with notes of mixed fruit and vinegar.

M: Slick light-to-medium body with firm, prickly carbonation. Dries out a bit on the finish. Very drinkable. I could see this being a well above-average thirst quencher.

O: Another impressive effort from Alvinne. I really like this little sour and would happily go out of my way to find it again.
