UPDATED: JUL 13, 2009 Drank from the bottle into a chalice in Brussels.
This was a surprising beer considering it came wrapped in a paper bag, didn’t know quite what to expect.
The beer pours as brownish red with a red head.
It smells tart but sweet.
Very good tasting beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Footed tulip poured draft at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours an almost blood red pour, a bit hazy, with big tannish red head that laces well sticks around throughly. Aromas are tart cherries, a good portion of oak and dryness, green apples, light malty sweetness. Tart, light sweetness. Initial is subtle sour cherries and fruit moving into smoothed out sweet malts, dry and oaky a good portion, green apple and cherry fruits, tart take a good portion but are smoothed out instead of sour dominant. Still, an impressive sour for the sessionability, doesn’t lose focus just prefers to be lighter fare. Finishes dry and tart. Cheers.

CASH CUB !
This is like a fruit beer without the fruit, but does seem to taste of fruit. Does that make sense? Its sour and stinks of it on opening but it doesnt overpower you on drinking. Its small and goes down easy and definitely creaks of Kriek. Its a pleasure to look at, and is an all round nice sour, but lets face it, this aint a Rodenbach Grand Cru. Tidy beer though for the price
