Pour out of 375 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Clear/slightly hazy orange with no head, aroma brought notes of cherry, touch of earth, vanilla, hints of earth, touch of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is a bit bland, touch of earth, grain, vanilla, some cherry, finishing lemon, slightly sour.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Funky and cherry fruity aroma with some light flowery notes. The flavor has a nice funky base, some fruity cherry sweetness, and floral hops. Good stuff.

swoopjones (6218) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at Of Love and Regret, Baltimore. Ruby with brownish tiny; almost rusty colored pour. Medium to fuller bodied pour. Tart cherries, earthy. Not a huge picker but nicely sour and tart. Nice

TheAlum (5950) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2012
Draft on tap at Fountainhead (Chicago, IL). Pours a luscious deep copper pour, more fiery edges but a deeper dark copper middle and body. Cakey offwhite hear tan head that cakes atop, sticks around well and laces ok overall. Aromas are some touches of toast and biscuits and a deeper dry bretty funk. Cobwebs, dust, and mellow barnyard move into some cherry elements, touches of lactic acid, mellow yogurt, and more brett as it seems to take the reigns. Touches of sweetness still peek in from time to time. Brett forward as opposed to sour and cherry ridden. Initial is medium bodied, a bit fluffy and lighter on the palate as bretty funk and dryness takes focus. Restrained sweetness from the malt base does a couple peeks, touches of biscuits and bread. Mellow cherry, touches of tannins, and middle gets a touch tangy and tart. Some light sourness creeps in but dry brett stays dominant on my palate. Dry florals and dry brett take hold, a touch crisp into the backend and finish. Gentle or small cherry elements leave some mellow tang, tartness, light sourness. A touch of coolness, mellow herbal, as the cherries come a bit more into focus up front. A compliment, getting a bit more tart through the experience and opening up the complexity a bit more as I go through. Well carbonated and a bit effervescent, which provides a synergy with the dryness. More wild than sour. Nice solid beer with some nice complexities, dryness, and lighter overall. A bit different than I expected though.

alexsdad06 (5924) - Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
12.7 ml bottle from jammalamma. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor are tart cherries, additional fruit character, wood, some light funk. I thought everything was there, just looking for a bit more pop.

b3shine (5854) - Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2013
375 ml bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks solid; light for a brown ale though. A slightly cloudy orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet, sour, and funky with a good mouthfeel. Good stuff!

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 Draft at blind tiger with max. Pours a hazy amber with light lacing. Aroma is sour cherries and wheat. Mouthfeel is carbonated and a tad too thin with notes of sour cherry, light oak, slight funk and sweet malts.

thirdeye11 (5635) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
(375ml bottled November 2011) clear medium gold with hints of ruby. Nose is mossy, old cellar floor, touch of cranberry. Taste is slightly like a sour brown, light cherry, cranberry, medium sourness, carbonated like soda. Cherry and cranberry linger, touch of caramel in finish.
