This is one of the best sours I have ever had. The cherries shine, and you can tell this was aged in Amarone barrels. The tartness is just right, not mouth-puckering, just spot on. Some funk, but like the tartness, not so much as to overpower the beer. I'm glad I picked up a few of these.This review is for the 2014 version.

Pours reddish brown with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows loads of funk, cherry, woody oak and rose notes.
Similar flavours; cherry, coconut, oak, bready malt, soft booze.

On-tap 3/13/2015 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish amber color, with a medium pinkish white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains tart cherries and grapes, very light caramelized malts and wild Belgian yeast.

T: The taste starts out very tart with strong flavors of cherries and grapes making it very wine-like. The malt character is thin and there is no hops presence. Neither is there much balance. The after-taste is tart.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is very dry.

O: Not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer considering its target niche but overall my options would have to be quite limited for me to choose it.
