4.33/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
pours dark with an off white head and very nice lacing
smells of sour funk, aromatic spice, gingerbread, and then some more sour but not so much as to over power, just enough to let you know it's a sour. And that is the way it tastes as well. Very nicely balanced between sweet, sour, spicy and not too much of anything in particular. I thought it was a fantastic beer and would get it again, Just what I am looking for these days.

3.95/5 rDev -2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Green capped 750 ml bottle from Gator Beverage, Batch 165, 167, 172, 174, dated 10/23/13 poured into Unibroue tulip on 5/12/14. Pours opaque brown that turns a bright ruby color when held up in the light. Big fluffy off white head that lingers for a good while. Aroma is sour cherries, some dark fruit, light spice, oak. I was expecting something different but this smells excellent. The flavor is chocolate covered cherries, light spices, a hint of balsamic vinegar, dry oaky finish. Sweet around the edges of the tongue. Medium bodied with effervescent carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. I really didn’t know what to expect from this brew, but it is really nice and seems pretty unique. I would have this again.
