From late 2011 750 ml bottle release.

A. Pours with little to no head - almost flat. Bright amber appearance with some cloudiness.

S. Fruity nose of sour cherry, Berry Jolly Rancher and vanilla/oak. Pretty nice.

T. Refreshing and puckering sour cherry and oak. Not much complexity here but very easy drinking.

M. Low carbonation and light bodied feel.

O. Pretty good effort - I would like to try a more recent release of this beer.

On-tap at the Central Waters tap room in Amherst, Wisconsin. Held during the Great Amherst Beer Festival today, 10/12/2013. 8oz pour into a plastic cup, which was then transferred to my Cigar City snifter.

Review #233.

Body is a hazy orange-amber colour with a decent 2cm white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Bits and bits of lacing sticks around.

Smells tart more than anything else. A solid bit of oak persists in the nose. Not much funk or earth to be found. I can't really tell this was brewed with cherries, to be honest.

Tastes crisp, like tart grapes with a decent bit of earthiness, but not overwhelming. Sourness quotient is not that high, but it is very hard to ignore. Sourness is mostly straight up lactate, but doesn't remind me of any particular fruit or flavour- it is just more of a pure acidity.. not a whole lot of cherry in here.

Thinner-medium body, good carbonation. Refreshing and not difficult to drink. Solidly balanced, slightly dry finish.

Good representation of the style. Not too overwhelming, not too complex and rather refreshing. This is a solid sour that doesn't go overboard in any department and I'm glad to have finally gotten around to trying this one. I heard comparisons to Russian River's Supplication here, but I just don't see it here.
