Smell is straight cherry. Pours a lovely cloudy amber with a white head. Taste is tart with a little sweetness defiantly hints of cherry. The Brett yeast gives it a nice earthy and sour flavor like I was expecting. Leaves a sour after taste that I like.

JulienHuxley (3256) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Can, flown over by Luk, thanks! Red - amber pour with small pinkish white head. Aroma is really cherry, cherry skins, light medicinal notes, slightly soapy, cherry pits. Taste is bretty, earthy, really fruity as well, light acetic character. Palate is slightly sweet, med carbonation. A bit strange, but enjoyable.

Can shared thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours very hazy full dark red with a thin pink head. Aroma of bathroom, soapy, cherry skin. Flavour is moderate sweet and light acidic. Dry palate with a tart hairspray finish. Light medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Bottle: The aroma consists of funky of cherries with a light band aid. It pours a muddy reddish-orange with a small pinkish-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate cherry. The finish has light lemon, tannic woody notes, and a hint of band aid. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the taste is decent but the aroma is pretty rough.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Can: Thanks, Mike. Bloody cherry color, muddled with some copper hints. Off-white cap fades to a collar quickly. Aroma of sweet, mashed cherries. Huge, juicy cherry aroma. Light perfume & a touch of tartness... Mostly juicy cherry. Taste is more tart; lots of cherry skin with some light juiciness underneath. Hint of lemon, a touch of wet hay, & a slightly lacto finish with lingering notes of cherry skin. Dry, thin-medium body. Almost a little too vapid & seltzer-like in the finish. Decent.

Sample at first sunday. Cherry fruit aroma and a light effervescent that hits your nose. Light and smooth with some decent bubbles. Bit of a fruity tang although it is light and faint. Very easy to drink and surprised at the alcohol content because it felt much less than 7.8.

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.

Can 473ml. Pours hazy pink/reddish with low to no head (would be white). Aroma is of cherries, sugar, syrup. Taste is of cherries, sugar, sourness, syrup. Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Good, sweet. Lots of cherries in there.

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.

thome50 (1049) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
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.

At jacob’s with group. Pours peach red. Aroma is unauthentic tangy fruits. Taste is synthetic tartness, cherry, dark berry. Meh.
