Bottle. Cherry cola and a thin pink head. Aroma is tart, cherries and earthy funk. Taste follows suit and adds some wood. Medium dry palate. Good flavor and nuance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thx b. pretty pink fluffy head and good lacing, ultra dark red stuff. Sweet cherry, pineapple and feet, hay, plants and an odd loosely chemically vinegar. The taste is not all that enjoyable. Watery, dry, leathery vinegar, some harshness, light yet tannic cherry pit. There is little joy in the flavour in the way of enjoyability.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Craft Clapham. Deep dark red with pink white foam head. Nose is intense deep black cherry, white sugar, fragrant red cherry and raspberry, sugary fresh out of the oven meringue. Also some farmyard, sour tart green apples. Taste is fresh fruit cherry, sour raspberry, intense green apple tartness, white sugary. Cherry dominates with a little Bakewell tart. It bold sour and cherry. Not huge depth but packed with fruit and very refreshing sour. I like it a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Belmont Station.
A: Deep purple (smoke...on the water.) with a pinkish white head. Nice legs.
N: Oak, cherry, acid. Some tobacco. Grapefruit and lemon sourness.
T: Intensely sour with some fruit to break up the pucker factor. Very little malt presence, but maybe a touch one note.
M: Lighter bodied than it might seem due to the intensity. Easy enough to drink.
O: Itís very sour, if youíre in to that sort of thing. However, Iím surprised by the lack of nuance.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a red so dark light barely shone through it. Intense aroma of cherries. I am a huge fan of lambic beers, cherry in particular, but this was just too dry and sour for me to rate it higher than a 3.5. I wanted to enjoy it a lot more than I did, especially for $17 (CAD) a bottle.

500ml c&c bottle from onebigtymer11. Thanks Nick! Pours a dark red color with a foamy pink head. Aroma of funky sour cherries, and sweet red grapes. Taste is slightly funky, lacto, lots of black cherries, and some citric acidity.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a deep red with a pink head. aromas of much black cherry, some pepper. Taste is peppery with so much fresh, sweet cherry. A touch too sweet. Still, very tart and lacto. Nice. Not the best, not as good as their other offerings, but solid.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a red color with a pink head. The aroma was of sour cherry and farm house funk. The taste was smooth earthy cherry with a hint of funk and a tart back end. Very nice.
