This beer was absolutely, totally, flat. Zero carbonation. I was worried when the cork was very easy to pull out. I am not going to give this one another chance, because I spent over $20.00 for this, even though the other reviewers did not have the same problem. I bought this from a very reputable supplier, so I don't think the problem was there. Refrigerated it as soon as I got home.

A: Poured a murky reddish burgundy color with a whispy pink cap, some light bubbles but not much in the head retention department iof I recall.

S: A blend of dark and red cherries, with some lactic sting, Earthy notes and old wood

T: Initial sting and bite with a jab of unripe red cherries which tends to hang around but it seems to be a little flat on the palate. Taste buds continue to pickup some Earthiness, light must and old wood. A little bit of spice is noted as well. Finish is dry, a little sting and tart.

M: Light to medium bodied, I felt is was a little undercarbed perhaps. Cherries dominate the mouth as does the lactic tartness

O: Average.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Thanks Dabe!

A: Pours a murky, ruddy brown body with a small cap of light pink foam. It retains decently before collapsing into a thin collar. No lace.

S: Cherries, vanilla, oak, a touch of brown sugar, and acetic sourness. Reminds me much more of a Flanders Red than a wild ale.

T: More tart than sour, though there is a small acetic presence. Tart, dark cherry skins, brown sugar, vanilla, and a small metallicity to it that I didn't enjoy. Certainly not bad, and it's a vast improvement over the other two Cisco beers I've tried. If I'm comparing this against a wild ale, it's not in the same class as Supplication or even Temptation. As a Flanders Red it's pretty good, though.

M: A dry finish, accentuated by a touch of tannins in the finish. It works well against the vanilla and cherries.

D: Not worth the $22 price tag on the bottle, but it didn't offend.
