On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark red with a thick white head. Aroma of sour cherry and wheat malt. Flavor is super cherry with sour notes and some wheaty grainy malt. Nice fruit notes, not too sour, the fruit and malt blend very well together. A very good sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear ruby red with a thin white head that dissipated completely. Aroma was full of fresh cherries that were mainly sweet but there was a bit of a tart bite. Flavor was similar with juicy sweet cherries throughout with a bit of tartness that grew. Didn’t pick up much brett at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear pink with a medium pink-ish foamy head. Huge lacing.
Aroma : Lots of brett with light tannins and sour notes. Light sour cherries.
Taste : Lots of brett with sour cherries. A bit metallic. Finish has notes of sour cherries with a lot of brett.
Overall : Very weird beer. The wild/sour profile was a bit different than what I’m used too. It seems like the brett was very intense so maybe I’m not used to such brett bombs. Anyways, it was quite tasty. Took a few sip to get used to it but I ended up liking this quite a lot. Appearance is really gorgeous. Cherries are very tasty. Nice sourness, nice brett albeit a bit too intense for me. Very interesting beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Pours a ruby pulp body with a scant head. Sweet syrup and cherries, Shirley temple like. Light drying with a very sweet and definitely cloying. A dank tart note but quickly disappearing to the sweetness and solvent like notes. Pretty bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours an odd hue of magenta-- looked sort of like plastic-- with small offwhite head. Aroma has cloying notes of raspberry and cherry pancake syrup with a bit of funk. Flavor is sweet cherry syrup, moldy cheese, and a touch of paint. Thin, slightly fizzy mouthfeel with a sharply tart finish. The cloying aspects could use a but of taming.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at brewpub: This was kept in stainless for 3 years and served from the cask. Ruby color, light pink head and fruity aroma. This beer has aged extremely well! The Bretts are present, but not overwhelming., the sweet/cherry has mellowed nicely. This beer was awesome at this age.
