4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.7 oz bottle from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Bottled on January 27, 2012. The aroma on this is delightful, with some sweet cherry notes, before a more funky, tart, barnyardy character comes through. A bit musty, but very nicely aromatic. Moderately hazy ruby-colored body with a small, bubbly pink head. Decent retention. Bottle opened with a very small pfft. Starts quite tart, and astringent. Some sour cherry fruitiness comes through in the middle. Finishes with some woody tannins, more acidity, and a touch of pimento olive. Quite dry, but well-balanced and drinkable. Really nice stuff.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Colour was very cloudy, lacked flavor compared to other cherry beers. Head went in seconds, fizz also lasted seconds... Disappointed

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from 05-2014. Pours ruby with a fizzy pink head that dissipates in an instant, but leaves a thin lacing. Aroma is definitely cherry with lambic yeast, barnyard, a hint of vinegar and mint. Light body, slick feel, sparkling carbonation. Taste is deliciously tart and refreshing with sour cherry (both flesh and stone), lemon and a hint of sharp cheese towards the dry finish. Pure lambic!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is like a pastel tint of red, with a head that is pinkish. The head diasappears quickly, with a lot of fizzing. The aroma is sour, but is somewhat softened by the cherries. The taste is also sour. The cherries give it a nice taste, whitout making it a sweet beer. Carbonation is relatively high. Nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ruby red, carbonation w. Whispy cloud swirls
Sour Cherry yeast aroma sweet wet barnyard
Palate is a pleasant mix of sour burst
And tangy backbone.
Was hoping to acquire Lou Pepe in a trade
But this will surely do.

Pours a deep dark blood red with fizzy deep pink head. Beautiful. Aromas are barnyard and oak mostly. Quite sour. Sour cherry, funky horse stable flavors. Almost no sweetness. Delicious.
