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.

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.

Trade from Madmitch, thanks. 2009 vintage. Hazy red body with a small light red head. Aroma is sourish, berries wood. Flavor is dusty, dry, cherries and oak. Very drinkable.

tastybeer (1774) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2011
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.

NikkTwist (1708) - 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.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2010
Draught at Pre-ZBF 2010. Murky reddish with laced head. Great aroma of ripe fruits, vanilla, oak and spicy coconut mix. It’s quite unique. The aroma shows through in flavour as well. The balance is superb but my only flaw is that it tends to finish on a strangely sweet and sour note. Perhaps it’s a little ’ripe’ at the moment. A nice interesting brew.

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

GothGargoyle (1374) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
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.
