2012 on tap at brew pub. Ruddy chocolate brown with a few bubbles of tan head sticking to the snifter. Aromas of rich dark cherries, red wine and bourbon. Smells like a mouthful. Taste is quite sour. The sourness overpowers the flavors present. I get cherries and some woody bourbon but the sour acetic/citric acid notes overpower the rest. This takes away from my enjoyment. Mouthfeel is dry and and thin with a sour aftertaste.overall a sour buddy with a nice aroma that is overshadowed with sour.

This is the epitome of the perfect holy crap sour beer out there. The taste is amazing with the cherries really coming through, but not overpowering. The sour bite is strong, but enjoyable to the last drop.
