Deep red colour. Medium carbonation. Complex aroma of wood, sour fruit and red wine. Easy drinkable. Rather thin palate.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2010
A little hazy red colored beer, with a little head. The aroma of a lot of fruits, cherries, nice sourness with wood notes. The taste of cherries with vanilla, wood and sour. The aftertaste is sour with a little bitter and dry sweet.

NikkTwist (2719) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy cherry color with a thin bubbly head. Unfiltered cherry flavor. Very sour, but nicely so. Rich cherry pulp. Slight flemish funk but mostly a clean sour. Had from the same barrel twice and has gotten more complex and sour with age.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Tasted on 12/1/12 from a bottle. Pours cloudy deep brick amber with a thin pink head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is funky cherry with cinnamon oak and a dry vinous note. The flavor is nicely sour with all of the tart cherry, funk, dry wine, and cinnamon oak from the nose. The body is medium and tannic with just lighter than average carbonation and a long sour cherry and vinous oaky and tannic finish.

Ruby brown with a small pale head. Aroma is barnyard funk, horse blanket, dark fruit. Funky and sour on the palate, thick mouthfeel, good balance. Taste is cranberry, red wine, red currants, sour cherry. Tasty.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Poured a dark red with a light pink head. Aroma was light but wonderfully pleasant, with notes of cherry, wood, and a sugary sweetness, perhaps marzipan. Flavor had added a subtle funkiness to the cherry component, with more vanilla and wood. Palate was light and crisp-- a really refreshing kriek. Not earth-shattering, but yummy.

Draft. Pour is a light amber/copper with a small off-white head, decent retention. Aroma is oak, sour cherries, brown sugar, something tart. Flavor is really nice, soft sourness with oak and cherries. Palate is sour, soft carbonation, light body/low alcohol.
