Pours a beautiful bright, vibrant, ruby red. Good retention and lacing,
Especially for a sour beer.
Nose is tart, dark cherries and a touch of lemon
Taste follows. A ton of rich, juicy, dark,
Tart cherries with a light, greasy, funky, lemon finish.
Great beer and a great value sour.

Pours a clear red color. 1/2 inch head of an off-pink color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight wheat, slight cherry, hint of hop, and earthiness. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable tartness. Tastes of sweet malt, slight wheat, cherry, hint of hop, candi sugar, and earthiness. Overall, underwhelming in body, blend, and aroma.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a 12 fl oz bottle on August 30, 2018. Brewed with Turkish Delight cherries and fermented with Brettanomyces. A nice blend of tart cherry and wild yeast funk.

Actually quite fond of this beer. Pours a very rose red cherry with a 1/2 inch of foam and smell is bright and fruity with sort of a Gose funk and cherry juice. Taste followed suit sour at first but still bright and fruity with cherry juice. Drink ability is quite good at 5.5% it went down smooth but was never watery.

Overall one heck of a good cherry ale not as good as Samuel Smiths but pretty close!

Poured into a small chalice: color is near red, quite dark which i guess is ruby but then also transparent; head is white with fine bubbles and presents with some depth, but that is gone within 10 minutes after the initial pour.

Smell might be the highlight of this ale - there is some funk, some cherry juice sweetness, hints of toast and even light nuttiness from the malt. On the pour i had expectations of a bit less depth but this is good.

Taste follows the aroma with good light funk, light cherry juice, light toast and nutty malts. As some have indicated this hits it pretty much straight down the fruited ale and funky ale line, therefore i could go for more funk but the malt depth is a good compliment to the sweetness.

Mouthfeel balances the sweet and tart line with hint of earthiness. Sweet from the cherry juice and tart from the brett yeast.

Overall a decent sweet sour, a bit on the sweet side but its executed well with pleasant malty aromas and flavors.

Too sweet for a sour. Cloying sweetness. Almost a cough syrup quality. I really enjoy the one hitter series. Unfortunately this one was a miss for me.
