Bottle - Pours pale pink with a ring of white head. Nose has lots of sweetness, gentle tartness, with bright cherry. Lovely. Taste has some light plastic and leather, with a gentle SweetTart tartness, cherry pie, and light mineral and yogurt. Fizzy and effervescent, with a light body. Very, very tasty.

Huge thanks to BobZ for the bottle. Bottled on 01/23/2012. 375 ml C+C bottle into a HF wine glass. Pours a deep red body that appears burnt orange in front of light. A finger of whispy foam clings to the sides for the whole ride. Really looks quite lovely. S - Huge cherry jam blast with faint notes of funk lingering in the background. Buttery oak barrels and some cinnamon spice. This smells amazing. T - Layers of tart cherries and smooth cherry jam blend seamlessly into some musky funk and wonderfully buttery smooth oak. A lingering acetic bite on the finish. Sour cherry pie here, really frickin delicious. Improves as it warms up too. Mouth feel is coating yet spritzy. Really surprised that the abv is this high, not noticeable in the least bit. O - One of the better American wilds I have tried. This is really something special. The funk is just right for being nearly 20 months old and the huge wall of tart cherries against the buttery oak is just perfect. Can compete with most authentic Belgian krieks.

Bottle shared by Matt at local tasting, pours a light pink almost peach like color with a thin head, the aroma was packed full of sourness with the fruit really coming through as well, the flavor was really nice, good tart front end with a nice mouthfeel that flowed into the fruit in the finish, a good funky finish as well, really impressed with this one.

Tart cherries. Slightly sweet. Not much funkiness, but it has the somewhat warming quality of true kriek down. Good stuff.

Small bottle purchased at Allagash in Portland. Really neat tour, super nice people (go there, it was awesome!!!) Beer was poured heavy into tulip. Smelled wild and inviting. Nice balance of wood, acidity, and awesome coating mouthfeel. Cherries are not super strong, but I didn’t want something cherry sweet, it would have ruined all the time this beer sat in the barrel. Yummy beer and I have one saved as well!!!

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours pink with an off-white head. Aroma of cherries, vanilla and oak, some pale malts, a nice tartness, some spices, and light nutmeg. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A very nice sour/fruit beer with a lot of tartness that is balanced by the sweetness.

Taster from a bottle shared at Natifest 2013. 375ml, shared by jstax. Totally hazy, peachy pink color. Minimal off-white head. No lace. Cool color, though. Very nice tart, sour taste. Moderate carbonation, kind of soft. Dry finish. Awesome sour cherry flavor; oak. Awesome cherry sour.

375 ml bottle shared by JStax- thanks again for these treats! Pours a hazy, pale grapefruit color with a small white head. Aroma of cherry, sourdough, plenty of funk, oak, floral notes, and even a suggestion of spice. Flavor of cherry, oaky funk, florals, dough, and lemon. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, tart mouthfeel. I differed with JStax in opinion on this; Red was my favorite, with Cerise last and Resurgam in the middle.

375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a white head. The aroma has a ton of cherry, like cherry pie filling. Tastes sour and fruity. Awesome!
