Bottle. Cheers to noted rock jock Paulo for supplying this. The pour’s amber with a modest head. The nose is certainly ’rustic’. I get musty attic, poo, urine, strong aged parmesan cheese. The taste is more pleasant. red berry, woody acid. Grape skin, some tart cherries. Loads of cheese. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, I found the cheesy notes in this to be overwhelming. Some people loved it. One of the more divisive beers of the evening.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during Paul’s Birthday Celebration - London. Thanks to Sr. Scopey. Pours hazy purple-red-amber with a foamy, light pink head. Smells like juicy farts, berries and cheese. Light sweet flavor, lightly dry and tart, tangy berries, bit of parmesan cheese. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Tart finish, some lightly sweet and tart berries, cherries in particular, light bitter fruit skins, lingering cheese. So so. That cheese factor makes this one a little awkward.

750ml bottle shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a dark ruby red with a light off white head, the aroma has a good amount of cherries with a little bit of funk and barnyard notes, the flavor has some of the barrel notes coming through on the front end with a really dry funky finish, probably from the red wine barrels, kind of different but nice.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 750ml bottle. Some BO in the aroma, something has gone quite odd there..maybe a splash of red wine vinegar. Nice tart cherry flavor, survives the suspect aroma. Really nice cherry tones, balanced sour/tart tones. Pitty, some dry tones. Quite a nice beer, a little outshined by the Lou Pepe before it. Refreshingly not test tube, but not quite nailing it.

Very cheesy, almost blue cheese, aromas - pretty unpleasant. Cherries come through as dry tannins, contributing more to mouthfeel than flavor. More cheese-funk and medicinal flavors. Not a fan.

obguthr (4659) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Slutfest 2013: Bouquet is cherry lifesavers and blue stilton. Rose colored, thick pink head. Tart roquefort and sweet cherry flavor with a subtle rustic twig finish. Not overly sour, powerfully funky, and decadent.

Emeister84 (1607) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of flowers, raisins, and cherries. Hazy raspberry with low, off-white head. Sour and very earthy. Light body, decent carbonation, and an abrupt, funky finish.

Drake (10695) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle shared at Slutfest 4. Pours a clear vibrant red with a large creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sour cherries, mild citrus and a faint bit of caramel. The taste is grape tannins, cherries, tart finish. Medium bodied.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Chez monieux... Tap at brewery. Starts round and sweeter, and builds with lactic tartness, some fermentation by-products, and grainy notes. Bit of tannins linger with puckering tartness. Fun, though a bit rough around the edges. 3.4.

Bottle from dasilky. Notes of soured apples. Cherries. Touch of apple cider. Wet oak. Dry. Fine.
