A: Pours a hazy red/orange color with a finger of foam. Active carbonation and solid lacing on the glass.

S: Cherries, some citrus, and some tartness.

T: Cherries! Sweet and sour cherries, with a bit of malt behind it. A hefty amount of tartness to it. Not hugely sour, but it's sour enough to make you notice. Damn good!

M: Active carbonation, bubbly, with a nice crisp finish.

D: This is an eminently drinkable brew. Huge flavor, and a great drinking experience. Well done.

Batch 008 pours ruby-brown with a very thin, off-white head which contributes a spotty lace. Aromas of cherry, oak, funk, and some lactic sourness create a wonderful bouquet. The tart and lactic sourness blend amazingly well with the sweet and tart cherry flavors. Tongue tickling carbonation in this medium bodied ale. Another GREAT beer from a GREAT brewery!

Cheers!

Pours a cloudy brown with orange mixed in. Has a nice off white head that diminishes rather quickly.

You can smell the sourness. There's some cherry and other fruits. Some citrus and light floral notes with some sugar tossed in.

The taste is sour cherry with a nice citrus blend giving some base. You can taste the wine influence. Kind of has a sugared grapefruit taste to the middle of the taste.

Not so much of a tart front that I was expecting. It was a nice blend of flavor and sourness.

Another great sour ale from RR. It's got a lot of great flavor and a refreshing quality to it. Definitely want more.
