Bottle: The aroma consists of cola sour cherries, light lemon, vinegar, faint dark fruit, and vinous notes. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cola and a touch of vinegar. The finish has light sour cherries, lemon, oak, dark fruit, cognac, and oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Nice cherry bretta lambic tasting thing. Finishes with a nice sour bite with lots of bretta and some sweetness from cherry. Cherry is pretty substantial here actually. Pours red with good head and lacing. Bottle at Churchkey thanks to Radagast, Travlr or Jack or someone. Great!

Bottle. Pours clear ruby mahogany - beautiful. Small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing in its wake. Aroma is very vinous, red wine, some Brett, oak, lemons, tart cherries. Flavor is initially lightly sweet, drying out quickly to a light tartness with just a touch of funk. Lots of oaky, vinous notes - I would swear this was a red wine and not a cognac treatment. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Very very nice beer.
