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.

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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2011
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.

italarican (1478) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2011
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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2011
On tap at the Blind Tiger. Pours a clear ruby red with not much of a head, but a thin white head appears with agitation. Toast and pomegranate on the nose. Smells a bit like grenadine syrup. Sweet, cloying and weird. Toast, light sourness. Dry acid and vinyl flavors. Long toast and yeast on the finish.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark red with a small pink head. Aroma is dense cherry and slight almondish. Cherry and almondish flavoured. Citric and sweet. Fruity and lingering finish.

TaktikMTL (5661) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2010
En fût. Verre de dégustation dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de cerises avec une pointe de cannelle. Apparence: La couleur est rouge légèrement voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de cerises légèrement sûrettes mais sucrées avec une pointe de vanille. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement vineuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de cerises en arrière goût. (Rating #2959)

josarah (111) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - JAN 19, 2009
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.

As a girl we loves fruit and funk in her beer I can’t help but adore this. I’d write more but I haven’t had this in about four months and I’m going of memory.
