2015 Vintage
The beer pours an amber red with a medium white head. It has medium carbonation. The beer smells of sweet cherry pits, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. The beer is tart, with sweet cherry pits, cinnamon, nutmeg, and faint oak. The feel is medium. A nice cherry sour from American Solera.

Drank from a 12.7fl. oz. bottle purchased at Red Apron Butcher, Fairfax, VA
2017
Served in a tulip

Love the label artwork. As for the beer, it poured a nearly clear, crimson-amber. The body was capped by a sudsy mass of large, cream colored bubbles that quickly dissolved. A thick, frothy collar encircled the liquid. No lacing whatsoever.

Outstanding aroma. Really interesting and complex with a terrific balance between fragrant, tart cherry notes and the base sour. Touch of sweetness. Hint of vanilla. Almost a bit cordial-like. Strong oaky barrel character. Red wine vinegar came through as well. There was a subtle biscuity, pale malt note too.

The flavor was much sharper than the nose. Red wine vinegar dominated. Super tart and acidic. Underripe berry notes were detectable. Bit of lactic-like sourness as well. The tartness and acidity became stronger as the beer moved along the palate and crescendoed in the finish. Oaky tannins and a big, vinegar-like acidity lingered long after the swallow.

Medium-light bodied mouthfeel. The liquid contained a very subtle but larger bubbled effervescence. Soft on the palate.

Of all the sour beers I have drank in recent memory, Foeder Cerise might take the cake in terms of overall tartness and acidity. While the aroma was complex and well rounded, the flavor was far too unbalanced. Good thing this beer only comes in 375 ml bottles, because I definitely could not handle any more in one sitting.

This is probably the most cherry I've gotten in a beer without the flavor of robitussin dominating the profile. Super tart, complex yet not heavy, but definitely a sipper

L: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a blood red color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a thin, off white, foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A very nice aroma of cherries, a sour funkiness, oak, malt, a vinegary quality, and a sugary element.

T: Tasted of a tinge of the advertised oak (mostly in the finish), a bit of light malt, a ton of cherries (very bracing), a lot of the vinegary / funky quality, and a little citrus as well. An incredibly effective, straightforward flavor. Lots of character and complexity. Fruity and delicious.

F: A below average amount of carbonation with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An exceptionally well-made wild ale. I look forward to having more from American Solera.

Ruddy orange-gold. Juicy cherry straight away - musty wood, acetic vinegary notes, tart lacto follow in that order. Cherry just keeps going and going. Oakiness adds further complexity as it warms but in the end it’s all about the cherry.

375ml capped bottle, served in a stemmed glass. Pours a medium cidery orange-brown body, one finger white head, short retention and no lacing. Smell is cherry pie batman! Cherries, a bit of graham crackery crust sweetness, apple cider with a touch of vinegar. Light oak. Flavour is a nice cherry flesh presence, mild-moderate vinegary and cidery tartness, certainly not enamel melting but still substantial acidity, light oak, mild crackery sweetness, finishing with a slightly spicy astringency. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lighter in carbonation than expected and reasonably dry.

Milky pastel red with a minimalist faint white ring.

Smell is carrot cake at first with cherry second, but more cherry emerges as it warms, and I get notes of pink lemonade and a hint of peppery oak. Mike says this reminds him of Magic Markers lol.

Taste is acidic, sour green apple, and, actually, maraschino cherry that's closer to gummies. Body is medium to thin with a certain softness and semi-dry finish.
