Bottle kindly shares by Leighton, Bruce and company: Served in a Tumbler: Hazy murky pinkish. No foam left when I taster it. Aroma has a good Lambic-a-like aroma: wild yeast, light wood, cherries, funk, light lacto, some barn and some tartness. Flavour is tart, cinnamon, red fruit, yoghurt, creamy, light dry, light sour, light barnyard. Very tasty! Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to a bit fuller bodied.

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle share: Hazy pinkish hue with a small fizzy head and not any lace. Big time tartness and lactic acid, funky and barnyard with pitty cherries and biscuity malts. Shocked to find out this was 8.3% ABV, never would have guess that. Well still not on the level of the best Krieks from Belgium, it is not that far behind either.

Pours hazy garnet with thin head. Huge amounts of bourbon and cherry aroma. Taste is sour cherry, funk, yeast and farmhouse. Medium body, light carbonation.

Bottle at Grote Dorst. Hazy light pink liquid with medium white head. Aroma of almonds, cinnamon, funk, barnyard, lacto and apple. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of cinnamon, almonds and apple skin. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. OK.

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured cloudy reddish amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy tart fruit and wood aroma. Medium to abundant body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Heavy tart & sweet flavor with a heavy sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

375 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a small white head. The aroma is tart/sour cherries, acidic, woody, funk, Brett, mild caramel and perhaps a touch of sweat. The flavor has tart/sour cherries, hints of caramel, acidic, woody, hints of spice and funk. On the dry side; a very interesting beer. I liked this slightly better than Resurgam.

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a hazy fruity orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells funky with notes of barnyard, cherry, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. Great beer.
