3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of the big share at Hunahpu’s Day 2014, poured into souvenir taster. Hazy red body with pink to white head that quickly fades. Some spots of lace left behind. Aroma is sour cherry, brett funk, earthy yeast, and cereal malt. Taste is bitter bretty earthiness, tart, sour, and medicinal cherries, and some malty sweetness. Light body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter medicinal brett finish, which is where this one fell apart for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (473 ml). Courtesy of Luk_, thanks! Hazy deep red with a small ring of white foam and little lacing. Aroma is cherry forward, but the same kind of cherry presence that you find in cough syrup. There’s also light sweetness, hints of brettanomyces and light spiciness. Taste is moderately sweet and as the same kind of cherrie presence along light brettanomyces presence and hints of spices. Medium body. Low carbonation. Thick for the style and sirupy mouthfeel. Decent sour. Not really complex, but if the goal was to showcase the cherries, I think it’s achieved.

Can thanks to Jason, thanks for a "thank you box extra". Pours a pink color with slight white head. Aroma was astringent cherry extract and some slight sourness. Taste was chemical artificial cherry cough drops with some very sour notes that had a mild grain finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can thanks to Ed5388. Poured as good looking as you can for a pinkish burguny body with a foamy average sized head. Aroma is medicinal with notes, of sour cherry, wet bread, light brett and horse blanket. Nice medium bidy with stronger carbonation and a lingering sour fruitiness. Flavor is better than the aroma. Sour cherry, more natural than the artificial aroma, brett, horse blanket, sour lemon. Good stuff.

Bottle shared at the 5k/7k/11k. Aroma of sour cherry and blue cheese. Pours dull pink with really nice carbonation. Taste is underripe sour cherry, rhubarb, cheese funk, and iron. Nice tartness just a little green tasting. Not impressive but pleasant.

This one poured a nice bright pink to red color with a pink head. Aroma was of lots of fresh fruits, raspberries and cherries mainly, and lemon and some brett. Flavor was similar, big fresh red seeded fruit punch, with a decent amount of acidity, but still showing great fruit character.
