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.

On tap at Blind Tiger. More dry than tart in the aroma: slightly vegetal with mild notes of coffee and tart cherries. Mild tartness from the cherries with some soft chocolate malt. Tartness increases as it warms. This got better as it warmed. Mild and simple sour but nonetheless enjoyable.

JBPortland (1480) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
375ml bottle pours hazy toasted red with small half finger head. Nose still holds lots of nice cherry pie spice, a hint of funk, round toasted crust and some cereal. Taste is medium tartness, round cherry and berry spice, toast, bread crust, a bit chalky. Finishes mostly dry with earthy toast and bits of semi-sweet roud tart cherry. Still tasting really good!

dagimp (942) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
375ml bottle courtesy of bro-in-law and sis-in-common law. November 2011. Pours a pretty pinkish red hue. Zero head or lacing. Aroma of berries, wine, green grapes and wine vinegar. Mouthfeel is very light and dry but waaaaaayyyyy too carbonated. Berliner Weisse-esque. Taste is lemony with berries, tart cherries, green grapes, faint cinnamon and green apples. A very good sour beer. Could have used some more depth of flavor but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Go Allagash. Excellent sour/wild ale almost on par with Russian River Supplication. On tap at TnD. Cherry, funk, basement. Strong sour flavor and mild/moderate sweetness. Lively, crisp body. A bit of unpleasant acidity on the trailing taste is the only flaw in my opinion. Very nice.
