I had the pleasure of trying this at the Central Water's 13th Anniversary Party on tap.

This beer poured a dark amber/reddish color. It had a very thick off white head that was about 3 fingers tall and lingered for a long time. The smell was very much bourbon, cherries, and a little bit of funk. Taste was surprisingly smooth. Up front was a lot like the smell. A lot of cherries, dark fruit, oak and bourbon. The finish was much lighter and crisp with a lighter fruit (apple, pear) flavor. Mouthfeel was really not what I expected. It was highly carbonated, which was probably why the head was so high, but very light and easily drinkable. I would love to try this again and I would love to see them bottle this one. If you ever get the chance to try it I would highly recommend it.

Had this at the 2010 Great Taste and loved it. This version was tapped at the 2011 Central Waters Anniversary party. I found it to be less sour overall than at the GTOTM, and actually it is even better than before.

It pours a ruby/brown with a huge head. Aroma is oaky with some sour cherry and pear sweetness.

The flavor is nicely tart with oak and sour cherry performing a balancing act.

The body is medium and carbonation is low. Overall this beer is fantastic and will really surprise people as a superior first sour offering from Central Waters. If you are a fan of oud bruins, this one should be on your radar.

Draft at the Great Taste. Pours a rust mahagony color with a nicely formed white tan head. The nose is way more sour and tart fruit notes than I expected. CW really have outdone themselves on this one and was a bit surprising to say the least. Some malty type flavors up front followed by the full force hit of the cherries that impart both a sweet and sour/tart taste to the beer. Light mouthfeel. Overall, a fairly good sour that ranks pretty well but still needs a little time to fully develop.

On tap at Great Taste 2010

Pours a light tan head. Color is an brown hued orange.

Aroma: It has an odd malt/toffee flavor to it. After that it does have a nice sour cherry flavor with some funk. Bourbon isn't too apparent.

Taste: Again, the taste starts out with more of a malty and toffee flavor before the sour notes hit. The cherries are very fresh. More bourbon showed here than in the nose.

Mouthfeel: tart, crisp, and clean. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Probably the best part of the beer.

Overall, a decent sour, but it needs work. Rumors are they might bottle this, which would be pretty cool. Fairly drinkable.
