Pours a muddled bourgundy color with light fizzy white head. Aroma is leather, tart cherries, and light funk. Reminds me a lot of a thinner Monomoy creek by Cisco. Pretty nice.

On draft at Monk’s Cafe. The pour was orange-ruby colored (much lighter than anything brown) with a nice initial head that thinned quickly. The aroma was tart cherries, some bret. The flavor followed, tart was tame but present, finishing each sip with a little zing. Dusty aftertaste. The mouthfeel was light, moderate carbonation. A nice sour if you like the drinkable ones vs. those that give you the: puckerup and pretend you enjoy the whole glass even though the hair stands up all over your body for up to an hour afterwards.

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 10, 2012
On draft at Novare Res for Gasharoo... Pours a ruby copper color with a three finger fluffy head that laces out fairly quickly. Aromas are very earthy, fresh compost, black tea and a hint of sour cherries. The flavors are very similar with a lot of earthy dusty, mushroom flavors that are brightened up with a touch of the sour cherry acidity and a hint of bitter sweetness on the finish.

corby112 (2736) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a hazy dark amber/copper color with a one finger frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind. Earthy, funky aroma with good lactic funk, oaky barnyard/musty horse blanket character.  Also a but vinous with dark fruit, musty, funky bugs and earthy oak.  Strong acetic solvent quality appears when it warns.  Smells similar to real lambic. Medium bodied with a strong puckering, sour mouthfeel.  Very tart with strong lactic funk and acetic solvent character.  A bit too stron in the acetone character but has nice sourness and funk along with dry earthy oak and subtle vinous fruit.  Kind of one dimensional with only subtle flavors balancing out the funk and strong solvent presence.

From notes. Tasted on 1/27/13 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle. Pours hazy orange-amber with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is dominated by earthy, natural cherry with some caramel malt underlying. The flavor has a bit more caramel malt prevalent, but is a nicely sour lemon acidic, with tons of cherry. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long caramel and cherry finish.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle share with my buddy Blake and his wife Gina (both sour heads). Pours a nice light brown/reddish color with very minimal head. Good carbonation shown with the pop of the top. Aroma is slightly funky with hints of a good sour time. Flavor isn’t super tart or funky but somewhere in the middle. Not a bad showing here.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
12 oz. bottle

Appearance: Pours a bright copper with absolutely no head.

Aroma: Classic kriek. Cherry pie, funk. Swimming pool.

Taste: Sharp cheesy yeast, tart cherry, ever so slightky toasted malt. Alcohol well masked.

Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium. High carbonation. Puckering.

Overall: This was tasty, and not alcoholic at all for being 8%. I think I liked this better than the two cherry Coolships.
