    12 oz bottle, bottled on 3/31/10. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange with a fizzy off white head that quickly goes to a thin film.

    The aroma is woody lactic pie cherries and red wine.

    The flavor is sweet and tart pie cherries with a nice sour twang with some wood, red wine and maybe a little oxidation and band aid in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.

    Overall, a decent sour cherry beer. I wonder if I hung on to it a bit long though.

    Maybe it was the 110 degree temp in the bar(n) but this was one of the best beers I have ever had! Cloudy orange color with minimal head, great balance of brett, oak and wild sourness. the cherry really pushed it over the top, just a great beer with everything going for it. Surprised by this from Avery as I'm usually calling them overrated.

    bottle: flying saucer whoston.. . pours a dark brown, decent low sticky head .. . interesting meld of aromas, shoe, cherry, leather, brett, stems, and grape juice .. . light sourness, more cherry, brett, barnyard and wood in the mouth.. . medium dryness,.. happy to have tried it but nothing to get to excited about .. . You work for Tuchman Marsh?

    this should definitely be in the sour catergory, though it is cherry dominated. the brett is there and obvious, but not so overpowering that the oaky complexity of the zin barrels can;t come through. and most of the tartness is more of the sour cherry variety. one of avery's best and another aweosme beer!! in the upper tier of sour ales.

    Sampled on 5/14/2010. This fruit beer pours a reddish copper color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, cherry and tart. A medium bodied fruit beer. There is a definite tart/sour aspect to this beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart, funky and a touch woody. An interesting wild ale. It’s tart and fruity with a nice funky aspect. Nice cheery flavors, sour and tart, with a touch of funk. Not a lot of carbonation, but its not really missing that much. Hint of wood at the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart and fruity.
