Thanks to Azurelimits for sharing this at a recent tasting. A: Pours a bright off-pink with a nice head. Great color with this one. S: Tart, sour cherries alongside some citrus, a bit of funk, and some lactic sourness. T: The cherries are in perfect balance between the sweet and sour aspects of the taste spectrum. A nice dryness coming in there as well along with some watermelon Jolly Rancher characteristics. M: Thin and pretty dry. Good carbonation. D: Very nice and drinkable. I’ll definitely be making a stop at Big Rock when I’m up in Michigan Memorial Day weekend. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-03-2010

Bottle – Shared at a local BA tasting. Pink, white creamy head. Soft funked cherry aromas with undercurrents of sour lemon, wood, and booze. Milky sour cherry pie and musty yeast flavors are well rounded by a lightly tart lemon zest and oak finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very well done…

A: The pour is a hazed light reddish-pink sort of color with a nice white head. S: Lots of tart and mildly sweet cherry aromas are immediately noticeable along with some lactic notes. Not much of the base tripel and maybe a touch of funk going on. T: The flavor is similarly rich in cherries, with a really strong tart cherry pie flavor. The lactic acidity is a bit more sharp here, and I enjoy that. Nicely sour, but a touch of sweetness as well. M: The body is medium with a nice carbonation to it. Despite a decent amount of sweetness from the cherries, this beer is pretty dry. D: A really nice beer that I would happily drink again. Got to love those sour cherries.

Bottle from Hoppymeal, thanks! Pink color, cloudy. Cherry and marzipan in the almost vinous aroma. Cherry and cherry pits in the alcoholic flavor. Thin. Strange beer, in which the cherry dominates. Nice beer, though..

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. It was very interesting, a style i had never had before. could have been much more sour, but at least you could still taste the base style. cool beer, worth trying.

sweet pie cherry aroma, borders on cough syrup. strong carbonation nose. sweet tart interplay comes across more like a jolly rancher.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 This rating is from the very first bottlings of this beer, it was a 12oz, unlabeled bottle. Light amber body with no head. Sour pie cherry nose, some caramel, dusty and cobwebby yeast. Lightly sweet and lightly sour taste, cherry, plum skins and caramel. Medium body is soft with light carbonation. Nice.

Murky pink with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, toast, wild yeast, cherry, leather, spices, and light alcohol. Taste of cherry pits, skins, a bit of sweetness, and sour finish.

A really enjoyable beer. Nose is full of cherries, oak notes, lactic tartness, a touch of funk and light boozy notes. Pours reddish pink with not much head or lace. Awesome cherry flavors throughout, medium sourness, oak barrel notes, lactic notes and some funky stuff, more cherries. Light tripel base beer is noticeable at times with a hint of sweetness. Nice sharp carbonation. Super easy to drink for the style. This was extremely solid IMO.
